Each year during the ninth lunar month (which falls between Sep and Nov according to the Lunar Calendar), thousands of devotees flock to Kusu Island for their annual Kusu Pilgrimage to pay homage for good health, peace, happiness, good luck and prosperity.
To cater for the huge local crowds, additional big ferries are required during this period to ferry them to Kusu Island and back. These ferries can be boarded at the Marina South Ferry Terminal (see my VT transportation tip on this). Be prepared for the crowds when visiting Kusu Island during this period (especially on weekends).
Marina South Ferry Terminal is a pier that is located in Marina South area of Singapore. It is used as a terminal for tourists and day trippers who boarded small boats and ferries heading for the Southern Islands. Regular ferries to Kusu Island and Saint John's Island operate daily.
Marina South Ferry Terminal was specifically built to replace Clifford Pier when the Marina Barrage was built. It opened in April 2006 and reachable by bus service 402 from the Marina Bay MRT Station (sub-way station).
Kusu Island is a small island with well-paved paths, so it is very easy to move around and explore. The only tougher part is climbing up a small hill to visit the three kramats (holy shrines of Malay saints).
