Due to the overwhelming response, so pls be punctual and pardon us that we would not be able to wait for latecomers.


This is a rain or shine event. However, if there is a thunderstorm at the time of meeting
, and safety is being compromised, then the event will be postponed.


Pls bring along the following items for a comfy and enjoyable walk:

- Cap

- mosquito repellent

- drinking water

- Come in covered sports shoes. No heels or dress shoes

 

Pls look out for 3PG email (chat message) from the event page for update. If there is no message from us, it means the trip is continued.

See you this Saturday!

Many of us have walked, jogged, or hiked in Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. But not many know that once upon a time a Malay and a Chinese kampong were in the vicinity. Today, there is still ruins of the old Chinese kampong within the dense vegetation. It is so well-hidden that few know it exists


Let’s visit the place again, have a look at the remnants of a well, a bathroom stall, a kitchen and a storage area which are still standing there today, and visualise the kampong life there.

  • I had a amazing trip with a group of friendly and warm tour mates. Carly was such an assuring tour leader. Excellent and safe Vietnamese driver, Jerry. well spoken English Vietnamese guide Tommy. I enjoyed myself very much and look forward for another trip!

  • Excellent short trip with beautiful verdant countryside and charming local tribal people not corrupted by tourism yet . Be prepared for long drive on narrow winding mountain roads.

  • Best trip ever ! Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time !

Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time ! Everyone kept their cool when faced with an unforseen delay . The scenery at Ha Giang is simply superb . There are so many small towns within the mountains with so many minority races living together . Their costumes are so colourful and the ladies' headgears are so lovely to gawk at . If I could , I would love to go again . Highly recommended for gungho people with "throw everything to the wind" attitude . Fantastic local guide and driver (Tom & Jerry) and pats on the back for Carly (Singapore guide) too . Thanks .........rosse and raymond . Read less

  • Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. ...

Late evening slot was a good idea as we got to see the night installations at The PathFinder portion, but food stalls already closed upon exit. There are toilets inside the exhibit in Fort Canning Center itself. Cleaner than the mobile toilets outside. Thank you for helping to get us tickets when it is so difficult to do so. Read less

  • My wife, son and I never regret of signing up this trip. My 8 year old son enjoyed the walk on the rocky beach. Best moment of the walk was that we came closed to the corals, crabs ???? and ???? shrimps. Thank you threeplaygrounds!
