Rustic Charm of Kampung Ubin

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.

A bicycle ride around the island would be fun and you may see much more things.

You can choose from eating a seafood dinner by the beach, free guided tours on last Sunday of the month, cycling or walking around the island.

Ubin is also full of interesting wildlife and plants.

The best way to discover Ubin is by joining one of the many free guided trips conducted by volunteers.

Take the bum boat ($2 per trip) from Changi Jetty.

Ubin Jetty is your first stop with a good view of Ubin Town, Chek Jawa to the east. Stop by the Infomation Kiosk to get a free pamphlet of Ubin and advice from the friendly NParks officers on how to spend your day on Ubin.

    Superb page! lots of useful insider tips! accidents can happen to anyone but as someone who grew up on the bicycle I always find it entertaining to see locals trying the bicycle! I suspect more S'poreans have driven a car than a bicylcle, isn't it ;-))

    Palau Ubin looks like a peaceful town to explore on a bike. The boar is something to avoid, though...hee,hee
