Dates of the public walks

How to book a tour?
According to the NParks website: "With effect from 1st June 2009, booking for guided tours will only be available via internet booking."

How does internet booking work?
Thanks to Adelle Wang for the explanations. This is how you make the booking.

Go to the NParks main page and look for the Chek Jawa walk on the date of your preference.
It may be hard to find the event on your own, so I've added the links for the dates on the above list of dates. Just click on the date you want. So far, only the dates in July are currently listed on the NParks website.

The page for the event should look something like this.
At the bottom of the page are a series of links labelled: "Email A Friend | PDA | Outlook | Print | Close This Window"
On the date that bookings are open (in this case it is on 1 Jun 09), a link labeled "Registration" will appear besides the link labeled "Email a Friend".

More details about the walk on the NParks website.

  2. Oh dear, so sorry to hear that NS. You might want to give this feedback on the NParks website? If they give you a response, pls share with us with a comment on this blog?

    I just post this information to help those interested in the walks. I can't be more helpful I'm afraid as I don't manage the walks and am not involved in the registration process.

    All the best and hope you get a chance to visit Chek Jawa!

  6. Anonymous, intertidal walks can only be held when there is a suitable low tide.

    Such tides do not always happen on a weekend.

  8. Anxious visitor, please see the comments above which express similar concerns.

    Why are there so few walks? and other FAQs about shore walks here: http://www.wildsingapore.com/places/shorefaq.htm

    For me to email you unfortunately is not possible.

    I do not have the time to run a personal email alert for the wide variety of issues that may be of interest to everyone. That is why I started this blog actually. So interested people can visit the blog.

    I do not run the walks and do not know the dates. When the dates become publicly available I will post it on this blog. So you can subscribe to the feed of this blog for updates about our shores.

    Usually, the walk dates for Jan-Mar are announced and made available for booking on 1 Dec on the NParks website.

    NParks runs the walks. If you would like NParks to provide a mailing list service, you might want to contact them?

  9. Can you book a private walk? We are moving away from Singapore as of January 1 and really want to do it before we leave. We would be willing to pay extra for this service. Thx!! From : HCJ

  10. HCJ, unfortunately there are no arrangements for private walks. Even public walks are charged.

    Dates for Jan-Mar are usually released for booking on 1 Dec. Please see earlier comments on this post for more explanations and links.
