20 Nov (Fri): Kayak the Kusu-Lazarus Trail with Kayakasia

Suitable for beginners, this is a paddle of transcendental significance! First we land on the impermanent beach of Lazarus Island, which only appears during certain tides.
After getting your life back reconnecting with the outdoors, we head to Kusu Island to bask ourselves in the longevity of the resident turtles. If that is not enough, climb the 152 steps leading to the kramats (Malay holy shrines) and pray at the Tua Pek Kong (Chinese) temple. If nothing works, laze on the tranquil beach of Kusu and see life anew!
