The durian trees on Pulau Ubin are flowering! Mama Crab Ley Kun is excited because in 100 days we will be able to taste the best durians in Singapore!

What a glorious day I had with families during the free monthly Naked Hermit Crab walk at Chek Jawa!

Since everyone was already gathered under the tree, we had our traditional group photo there!

Check out the Naked Hermit Crab blog for their latest monthly free walks for families.

But you can also visit the boardwalk on your own. The 1.1km boardwalk is open 8.30am to 6pm. Free entry. No need a guide to visit. More about how to get there in Chek Jawa: an easy 'overseas' adventure for families.

Come join the Chek Jawa Open House on 10 Jun (Sun): Balik Chek Jawa. FREE, no registration required, just come to Chek Jawa! Volunteer guides will be stationed all over the boardwalk to share about Chek Jawa's amazing wildlife. This Chek Jawa Open House is supported by the community who love Chek Jawa and offered once a year as part of Pesta Ubin.
