Pulau Ubin: tips for visitors

Proper preparation always makes for a more enjoyable trip.
Here are some general preparations for a day trip.

Although Ubin is a peaceful and quiet place, do take the usual precautions.
  • Obey all traffic signs and rules. Be especially careful when it is raining or getting dark.
  • When cycling: use protective gear, ensure your bicycle is in good working condition before setting off. Use only designated roads and tracks, and keep to the left, in a single file.
  • Heed all warning signs.
  • Don't swim in areas not designated for swimming. Quarries and sluice gates are particularly treacherous places.
  • Don't leave valuables unattended.
  • Water from public toilets and wells are not suitable for drinking or bathing.
