COVID restrictions update Sep 27: This tour will go ahead as planned, in accordance with government regulations specific to tours led by licensed local tour guides.

Over at Telok Blangah - otherwise known as Cooking Pot Bay was a former “new” town set up by ancestors of the current Sultan of Johore.  It is today known for the mall of Vivocity, Cable Car rides, and the gateway to Sentosa; which explains locals’ fascination with shopping, dining and staycation while in this area. 

On this tour, we will steer clear of those fascinations.  Instead, we’ will get our feet wet and muddy exploring this cooking (melting) pot of forgotten tombstones, war time bunkers, and ‘questionable’ remnants of the Johore Sultanate.

What has a Japanese engineer got to do with an abandoned swimming pool; the relationship between a Kapok Tree and a forgotten wartime bunker; unmarked tombs sprinkled en-route to a little known community of Black & White houses.  Let’s scout this off-the-beaten-site to unearth those connecting dots of this bay.   The tour ends at Blk 102 Bukit Purmei Road (090102).

This tour is not for the faint-hearted. Come with a sense of adventure and be prepared to get muddy.  You must have a certain level of fitness to climb a hill and transverse across no man’s land. 

Dress code: comfortable hiking boots, cooling outdoor wear, hat.  Bring water bottle, towel, money.

This tour is non-refundable.
