Tuas Travel Tips




Tuas is a place on the western part of Singapore. It is regarded as a planning area within the West Region of Singapore. Once a fishing village, Tuas has metamorphosed into a public housing and industrial area since the 1970s.

Located next to the Jurong Industrial Estate, Tuas is the located for the placement of heavy industries, as it is a distance from downtown Singapore. Since the late 1980s, the coastal areas south of Tuas proper has been extensively reclaimed, to house what is planned to be the largest oil storage facility in the world. The area is known as Tuas Peninsula and Tuas South.

Tuas is perhaps best known as the landing site for the Malaysia-Singapore Second Link, which connects Singapore to Tanjung Kupang in Johor, Malaysia.
