A Kelong near Pulau Ubin

Kelong near Pasir Ris
Some Singaporean families call these Kelongs their official residence. They are all accounted for and have been assigned numbers. One can spend time fishing in this platform and observe net fishing.
Kelong served as a dwelling place for fisherman.
Aside from Singapore, Kelongs can also be seen in the waters of the Philippines, Malaysia and Indonesia.
