Let's hop southern islands starting at St. John Island Singapore

We will take a boat from Marina South Pier to St John Island at 9 am and walk through the embankment to Lazarus Island. These islands named the Singapore Southern Island. Under the protection and preserved the best nature, we find much breathtaking spaces island within the red-dot.  We suggest to bring along your Chinese new year goodies and we can try out each other goodies.  The island doesn’t have food too so please bring along your lunch too. 

Let's hop southern islands starting at St. John Island Singapore

We plan to walk and explore St John Island and Lazarus Island till 1:50 pm and return to mainland 2:30 pm. This is one of the events you can do in Singapore during Chinese New Year. Slightly more than 1 year ago the group 137 of us were there and some participated in a time capsule we, however, aren’t opening our time capsule yet, is likely we will open our time capsule later this year.

Things to take note

  • Return ferry ticket cost S$18, please arrive at the Marina South Pier latest by 8:30 am to buy your tickets.
  • If many people decide to join us, we will collect the ferry tickets earlier as we don’t want to be competing with the public for getting on the ferry.
  • The island doesn't sell water too, as such please bring along your own water enough for the day.
  • The island beaches are very welcoming and clean, is likely you will be tempted to swim, we suggest you bring along a set of clothing for change, shower facilities are available on the islands.
  • Bring a picnic mat and relax under shady trees.
  • You can hop to Kusu island with the same ticket and at no additional charge.

  • 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.

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. ... Read more 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!
