I visited Kusu Island on a Saturday early morning during the Kusu Pilgrimage month (9th Lunar calendar month).
Drove there and was still able to find a car park lot right at the Pier. Bought the ferry ticket at the temporary ‘container’ counter and vista $18 for one adult ticket. I caught the first ferry out from Marina South Pier at around 6.05am and arrived in a jiffy at around 6.30am. The weather was good and ride was rather smooth early in the morning.
I offered prayers at the temple and shrine as with many other devotees at this time of the year. Good to bring small notes for donations. I spent around one hour offering prayers at the temple and Shrine. The visit to the Shrine is a must and be prepared to climb 152 steps all the up the hill.
Many devotees come here annually to seek blessings for Longevity, Wealth, Tranquility (physical health and peace of mind), Love of virtue and fulfillment of Destiny.
There are several food and drinks stalls on the island. Also come with clean wash room and many resting areas. The island is very clean and there are proper paved footpath to explore the island.
I left at around 8.05am and the ferry arrived at mainland Singapore at about 8.30am. It was a relaxing and enjoyable trip to get away from the main island for a short while and I am looking forward to return next year.
