Kelong trip for kids

Postby super_dad » Wed Jan 02, 2008 5:42 pm

This is one activity that will be an eye opener for city kids. There, they will experience simple and basic living conditions, get close to nature and have a good time making a nuisance of themselves. I have seen dolphins, leatherback turtles, as well as all kinds of fishes.

The best kelong visit is at Sibu Kelongs. There are 4 there, all having more or less the same thing. 2D/1N is at $69 per pax. Children is $38 per head. Food all provided. Ample fresh water and bathing/toilet facilities.
Bookings can be done anytime, as long as there is space on the kelong. It usually is, unless there is a holiday. You can usually call the day before, and someone will pick you up at the Jetty. The numbers are

Kelong Hotboys +6019 7453019
Ah Ngan Kelong +6019 7712879
Ah Yew kelong +6013 7212332
Ah Fatt kelong +6019 7120333

Easy to drive there, and safe parking. The boarding point is Tanjong Leman Jetty. The normal timings are to get to the Jetty (somehow) at 9-9.30am. Boat will pick you and bring you over the kelong. The boat trip is a 30 mins ride. The next day, you will return to the Jetty after final lunch at the Kelong at around 12-1pm. From there, the drive back to Singapore is about 2-3 hours.

Therefore, a very doable activity over the weekend. Go Sat and be back Sun 4-5pm for resting till work and school the next day.

One of them has a website. (the more commercialised one)
check it out.

Good stuff, super_dad! I will put your review as an enrichment activity for others to find out what to do on that lazy weekend or March holidays.

Yeah...it is cheap and good fun. In fact, I will be leading a troupe of friends up during the 2nd-3rd day of CNY. If you are keen, let me know.

Also, if you need more info, fire away. :P
