Pulau Ubin is in essence, the last 'kampung' (village) in Singapore.
A stroll through Ubin takes you back to Singapore in the 1960's with
the simpler pleasures of life. The slow lane starts as soon as you
join the queue for the bumboat at Changi. As you arrive, all cares
are left behind.
Ubin is a great day trip spent walking or pedaling through rustic
roads under swaying coconut palms, exploring shady trails in overgrown
rubber plantations, checking out secluded beaches and flourishing
mangroves. On Ubin, the food tastes better, air is fresher and sights
and sounds so soothing to the soul.
