Travel: Singapore - Pualu Ubin

School terms keep kids in school and parents sane. Holidays can be boring to kids if they are left alone. Discuss vacation ideas and how to make good use of the free time for both children and adults.

Postby IsaIvamum » Tue Aug 04, 2009 11:51 am

I'm intending to bring my children.. age 9 & 10 to Puala Ubin.. Heard that there is a 'Chek Java'... Anyone been there before? Thought of renting the bicycles to roam ard .. Is it safe ? Any suggestion ?

I brought the kids during last sept hols. Was really nice. We saw wild boars, monitor lizards, and basically enjoyed nature...

Great trip!

I know the slope is very steep. I'm only intend to go to the Chek Jewa trip. With 2 little kids, I also cannot bring them cycling.
Thanks for the advice.
