Here is a Street Directory Map. This is the entrance to Punggol Waterway at Punggol Road. Bus 84 from Punggol Bus Interchange stops here and the Kelong Bridge can be seen from Punggol Road. The Old Punggol Bus Stop is located here. Take a look. Walk leisurely past the carnival tents to reach the Punggol Waterway Fiesta ceremony site while taking in the sight. The Treelodge is just across the road. To maximise your time here in Punggol, you can also take Bus 84 to Punggol Jetty or better yet just walk along Punggol Road towards the end. About 15 – 30 minutes.
If you are not too familiar with the place, there is a list of posting on Punggol Waterway and the surrounding areas here. Click on Site Orientation for Punggol Waterway Fiesta for the locations in relation to the map. I plan to either walk or cycle there. It is going to be crowded.
