"Island Getaway for Outdoor Lovers" Pulau Ubin by vyxxyn
Pulau Ubin Travel Guide: 231 reviews and 572 photos
From Singapore's Changi Jetty, take a bumboat to this island. S$2 per direction. Additional S$2 per bicycle.
It's like backward Singapore, dating way back before 1970s. There are more mosquitoes than humans on the island so bring sufficient insect repellant!
A Must See!
Trees with breathing aerial roots line the shoreline. Mudskippers (half fish half amphibian) are everywhere. If you're lucky, there are starfish, hermit crabs, crabs, fish and anemones. A diver's experience without the oxy tank and diving gear!
Houses called "kampungs" are found off tracks and roads. Sometimes solitary sometimes in clusters. Most are dull-coloured like ones in this photo. Occasionally you'll find well-decorated ones with pretty fences.
- Pros:Educational, a haven for outdoor enthusiasts
- Cons:Not totally civilized, not recommended for those who are likely to get lost
- In a nutshell:Clean crisp air, slow pace of life, plenty of exercise
If you are a nature lover, outdoor enthusiast, conservation activist or the like, get a copy of "CHEK JAWA GUIDEBOOK"... more travel advice
Keep it simple, keep it light. A rain jacket just in case. Or an umbrella which can be cumbersome. Soap leaves. No... more travel advice
