This year's Kusu Pilgrimage season falls between Oct 15 and Nov 13, when thousands of devotees will pay homage at a temple on Kusu Island.

Kusu Island is one of the country's southern islands, and is home to the popular Da Bo Gong (Tua Pek Kong) Temple. It falls on the ninth lunar month every year.

During this season, ferries to Kusu Island will depart from Marina South Pier, from 7am on weekdays and 6.30am on weekends and public holidays. The last ferry will depart from the pier at 5pm and leave Kusu Island at 7pm daily.

All regular ferry services to St John's Island will be temporarily suspended.
