Kusu Island via @visitsingapore

Kusu Island is home to a number of important holy sites and is the place of the annual Kusu Pilgrimage. Every year, from September to November, thousands of people visit the island to pay homage for peace, good luck, health, happiness and prosperity. Also known as Peak Island or “Tortoise Island” in Chinese, the famous Chinese temple Da Bo Gong which was built in 1923 is located here. On its hill top also stands three shrines to Malay sites, where people climb up 152 steps just to pray. In addition to its wealth of heritage sites, Kusu Island is also a visitors’ favourite thanks to its picturesque lagoons, clean beaches and varied animal life. Hire a boat from Marine South Pier if you’ll like to visit Kusu Island, and you’ll be able to spot tortoises as well as other abundant land and sea creatures here.
