It is located in the center of streets. To reach threre simply park your vehicles behind the temple and then walk. Outer walls filled with wisdom words from Tao, Confucious and other wisdom men. The temple surrounding is clean. Like many temples the inner temple is beautiful with two huge candles on the left side. It is beautiful and serene.

Tjhia Family House

Reviewed By theo1006 - Mijas, Spain

Rumah Marga Thjia or the Xie Family House is part of a larger heritage site, designated as such by the municipal government. The Thjia house, centrepiece of the site, was built by Tjhia Siu Si (Xie Shou Shi), an immigrant from Fujian. He was granted the land on the bank of Singkawang river by the Dutch government after having been successful in agriculture and shipping.
The two central buildings served as trading office (front) and reception room (back). Nowadays these stand empty and serve as klenteng respectively. The living quarters are arranged in U-shape around the central buildings, seperated by a garden and covered walkways. To each of his seven sons Thjia Siu Si bequeathed "two doors". His descendants still live there in harmony.
We were lucky to be shown around by mrs Emily Zoe Hertzman, a Canadian by birth. She is married to one of Siu Si's descendants (5th generation) and lives half a year in Singkawang, half a year in Canada. As an anthropologist she did her research and differs of opinion with the Tourist Department as to the age of the house. The latter dates it to 1901, "but I found map of 1887 which already shows the house".
The government has provided some walkways and Bridges along and over the river, but private owners have to maintain their own house. The Thjia compound was built of ironwood and still in good shape. The family set up a foundation to help finance its preservation, they are not that rich any more.

This area has few Playgrounds and games to play just like Dufan in very mini version. But the manager of this area doesn't concern about maintanance of their tools and games, it really needs to be renovated. Anyway, this place is one of most visited place in Singkawang especially for Office workers who plans their family gathering.

Lemukutan Island

Reviewed By Jonasraditian

Ini pulau yang masih alami, blm banyak sentuhan dari pihak pihak ketiga, maupun investor besar. Masih dikelola dgn sederhana oleh warga sekitar.
View-nya seksi abis, indah nan eksotis menikmati sunset di sini. Jika beruntung dan mau berburu, bs menemukan telur penyu.
Disini sudah ada pemukiman warga meski tidak banyak, mayoritas warganya nelayan dan berkebun cengkeh di bagian atas bukit. Pulaunya terpisah, pasir putih, ada mata air bukit yg dingin dan seger, asri dan adem.
Pulau ini terletak di kabupaten Bengkayang, Kalimantan barat.
Dari kota Pontianak ke pulau Lemukutan butuh waktu tempuh sekitar 2 jam, sampai di dermaga penyebrangan teluk Suak (antara sei raya dan Singkawang), selanjutnya melakukan penyebrangan menuju pulaunya yg ditempuh dengan kapal kecil (kapal kelotok) selama 1 jam.
View : terumbu karang, pantai pasir putih, perkebunan di atas bukit, laut, kapal antar pulau yang melintas di depan pulau, para nelayan menangkap ikan di laut.
Kelebihanny Bisa snorkeling, renang, mancing ikan, berkemah, dsb. Kalau ga mau repot juga bs nginep di home stay milik warga dgn tarif yg terjangkau 100-150rb/malam sudah sama makan.
Kalau bawa kendaraan pribadi, bisa di titipkan di dermaga teluk Suak. Kendaraan bs nginap, aman dan murah. pulang dari pulau Lemukutan, bisa bawa oleh oleh aneka jenis ikan segar, ikan asin, dan sotong kering (biasa dibuat sotong pangkong, makanan khas Pontianak selama bulan puasa)
