St John’s Island
This is another great one day getaway for the family. There’s a few trekking routes that your family can go on. If you are lucky, you can even see the Rafflesia flower there! (It’s rare because full bloom only last about 3 days and it takes at least 1.5 years to reach it.)
Rafflesia is the world’s largest flower and named after Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles, the founder of the British Colony of Singapore.
Let your kids understand the fragility of the flora and fauna and have fun at the same time!
