Avoid the crowds visiting Kek Lok Si and Khoo Kongsi and visit the lesser known Hean Boo Thean Temple, which is dedicated to Kuan Yin – the Goddess of Mercy. This ‘floating temple’ located near the famous clan jetties of Weld Quay hovers above water. Erected in 1972, the temple was initially a simple shrine on stilts, but was fortified in 2012 to last against daily high tides. Visit at dusk when the temple’s twinkling lights are reflected in the North Channel.
