Walking Route : Woodlands MRT – Admiralty Park – Woodlands Jetty – Senoko Fishery Port – Sembawang Hotspring!
This trail starts when we check into the forestry Admiralty in total darkness among mangrove trails at midnight! Then through a a small exit, we will head towards Woodlands Jetty Point to take a break , where we will get a taste of our hot tea with mooncakes , under the mid-autumn moonlight to enjoy the sea breeze, watching the traffic along the Woodlands Causeway and greet our JB neighbour on the other side of the straits.
We then procced to the Senoko Fishery Port along the Admiralty Road and Attap Valley Road.
Senoko Fishery Port : This fishery port only operates from 2am to 6am daily. It is one of the few wholesale fish markets that supplies our daily seafood needs! For those who have not visited this local fish port before, here is an extraordinary wet market experience not to be missed . You get to see how all types of seafood(fishes, sotongs, crabs, prwans, scallops, mussles, sea cucumbers, clams…..and many more ) in various shapes and sizes, are freshly unloading from the arrival fishing ships. We will give time for you to go around the market stalls and capture the scenes where the merchants are busy trading at various stalls with the traditional weighing scales in function, and the opportunities for you to examine all these various sea specieies on display. Wet, slippery, crowy and fish-smelly air, dont miss this very happening livehood visit!
Bring sufficient cash and self-packing carriers if you are keen to do some shopping. We will walk out for early breakfast(at neighbourhood coffee shop), or till we can get public transport.
Those who are still keen, can join me to proceed to the Sembawang Hotspring Park for an “early-bird” foot-bath at 7am when the park opens!
Participants can choose to leave the group anytime or any point which they deem appropriate. Participants are recommended to walk in small groups groups of 1-5 pax, Remember to have your masks ready anytime, and your due diligent to do health check (self ART with negative result) before attendance.
