Sungei Lima (5th River) fishing village is accessible by high speed ferry boats from South Port Ferry Terminal - travelling time is approx. 35 minutes. This traditional Chinese fishing village is less known to tourists but after the shooting of a local love story film "Paint My Love" in 2015 using Sungei Lima & Pulau Ketam as the background setting, this quaint little fishing village in Sungei Lima has gained popularity with the local tourists in recent years !

Mangrove swamps, open drying of shrimps, Chinese temples, quiet & peaceful, no cars, only bicycles, street art, fresh & processed seafood, oyster omelets, floating fish farms, houses on wooden stilts, homestay, simple lifestyle etc these are the things that I observed & caught my eyes during my 2-3 hrs visit to Sungei Lima - indeed a great place to loiter your time here away from the hustle & bustle of city life !
