    Pulau Ubin - Part 1




    06.09.2008
    Visited Pulau Ubin with Chloe.
    Info: Pulau Ubin - The last 'kampung' (village) in Singapore. Pulau Ubin is a great day trip spent walking or cycling through rustic roads under swaying coconut palms, exploring shady trails in overgrown rubber plantations, checking out secluded beaches and flourishing mangroves.

    How to get there? Take a bumboat from Changi Jetty (walking distance from Changi Village bus interchange).

    On the bumboat... 12 passengers per bumboat. SG$2.50 one way per person.


    The boat is kinda 'old', isn't it?


    View from the boat


    Nice view + Wonderful weather...


    Some chalets (built on Pulau Singapura, but facing Pulau U
    bin)


    After 15 minutes of boat ride. We reached Pulau Ubin!


    Look familiar? Pulau Ketam??? No, this is Pulau Ubin - The last rural corner of Singapore.


    View from Pulau Ubin Jetty... Sunny afternoon


    Yes, Pulau Ubin is very near to Changi Airport. That's why you can see planes.


    For those who can read chinese, read this News. It probably happened on the same day of our trip. A women died in a fatal cycling accident as she was coming downhill. So scary...

    More photos on the next post, stay tuned!

    It's nice to escape from our hectic life and immerse ourselves in a different environment every once in a while. Kampung all give you that nostalgic feeling don't you think?!

    Never been there but been to Bintan and Batam instead for a weekend trip. Is Pulau Ubin worth a trip .. anything special to buy like their local produce?

    Family First: I don't see any shops there. At first we planned to go Bintan, but the hotels are fully booked. So we went to Ubin only.
