Back to nature
A few kilometres south of Singapore lies a secret beach with clear waters and white sands on St John's Island, one of the country's many beautiful offshore islands.
St John's Island was once a quarantine centre for immigrants coming into Singapore who had cholera, beri-beri and leprosy. It was later used to house political prisoners and drug rehabilitators - you can still see the high barbed wire fences.
Today, it is known as a place for the public to visit for a day trip away from the city.
