Because they are there. Why go to Chek Jawa? You wouldn't go out of your way for it. But you won't have to as you are already on Pulau Ubin and it is 80m down the road. Top surveyor. Solid jetty. Imaginatively named island.

Best part of Pulau Ubin. The only downside is all the rubbish that washes up from Singapore and Malaysia. We need to organise a working bee to clean it up! Otherwise the place is well managed by the national parks service.
