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.
Admission to the island is free. There are no opening or closing
hours, but regular services only run during daylight hours.
The NParks Information Kiosk is open 8.30am-5pm. Bumboats to
and from Pulau Ubin, and public transport on the island operate
from sunrise to sunset.
