Route at Ubin
The long Western
Route takes you west off Ubin Town along Jalan Jelutong, then Jalan
Endut Senin to Jalan Wat Siam. Retrace your steps to return to Town.
Some of the major sights on your journey West include
Town: the heart of Ubin
The Community Centre (now the Ubin Volunteer
Hub) and Basketball Court was the centre of Ubin village activities
in the past. The Basketball Court is still a major meeting point for
larger groups visiting Ubin.
The public toilets are just past the Basketball Court.
Along the shady Jalan Jelutong, you will pass a scenic view of Pekan
Quarry, where herons sometimes rest in numbers on the drowned trees.
At the junction take Jalan Endut Senin, downhill along a coconut lined
Bukit Puaka, the tallest point of Ubin lies
on this road. The entrance to the trail up the hill is not marked
as visits are not encouraged.
On Westward brings you past the distinctive exhortation to stop and
have a cold drink. This has become a landmark. There are herbal gardens
around the home, and just across the road, a lovely view of Ubin Granite
Quarry with benches placed just so you can enjoy it.
At the bridge over Sungei Puaka is a quaint drink stop with cold coconuts
and other refreshing drinks. There is also an old style outhouse (toilet)
over the river with a precarious walkway that most people can't resist
The road winds past more mangroves, through fruit orchards and past
some grasslands and a Chinese graveyard.
The rest of the island westwards is Outward Bound
View from Bukit Puaka.
Buy a drink la!
