Event description
A breath-taking natural phenomenon not to be missed – Be amazed by the rich biodiversity which reveals itself when the tide recedes on this

About this event

For a few hours during spring tides, nature opens its gates to reveal its secrets underneath the waters. Join Richard on a mesmerising tour of Pulau Hantu’s stunning intertidal zone as he shares the rich biodiversity of the island and his experiences as a citizen scientist surveying these habitats!

Meet Richard Kuah!

Hi everyone, I am Richard Kuah, a nature enthusiast-turned-licensed tour guide! Even though guiding is my full-time job, I love surveying our islands during my free time to catalogue our rich marine biodiversity.

To me, Pulau Hantu contains a natural heritage like no other. Even though the island is located next to a landfill (Pulau Semakau) and an oil refinery (Pulau Bukom), it holds so much biodiversity! I remember when I visited recently that I could hardly find a space to find my footing. While it may appear to be bountiful and thriving, we must be mindful that this is a very fragile ecosystem. As tempting as it may be, it is crucial that we see-no-touch and respect the environment. I hope that everyone will take nothing but pictures and leave nothing but footprints. With that out of the way, I cannot wait to meet everyone and share this experience this coming November!

Organiser My Community Festival

Organiser of Welcome to My Pulau Hantu with Richard Kuah

My Community Festival is a ground-up initiative showcasing Singapore’s best kept secrets and community stories through immersive tours, tastings and other cultural and heritage experiences.

4 Things To Know About The Festival

  • It is curated in collaboration with heritage practitioners, business owners, legacy brands as well as a number of religious and cultural institutions.
  • It builds upon the demand for culinary travel, cultural exploration and activity-based travel experiences - evident from the consumption habits of locals and tourists alike.
  • It aims to connect people from all walks of life through the festival platform in the hopes that they may go on to expand their social networks.
  • The festival has taken on an added dimension as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. It serves as a means in which to re-introduce locals back to the island’s ethnic enclaves and to support local, legacy establishments in a triumphant display of resilience as a community. Let’s come together to celebrate the Singaporean spirit after a challenging 2020.
