Rustic Reflections Tour – 20 May 2017
Go on a walk to rediscover Pulau Ubin’s kampung heritage and journey through the island’s cultural, economic and natural history. On this 2.5 km walk, you will discover important historical landmarks, wildlife habitats and restored buildings that have defined life on the island.
This tour takes approximately 2 hours. It starts at the Assembly Area before proceeding to the former Bin Kiang School site. You will then head over to the Sensory Trail pond to learn about the habitat restoration efforts before making stops at Pulau Ubin’s former headman’s house and Kampung Melayu. Tour participants will also visit a rubber plantation that once supplied Singapore, and possibly the region, with latex, and learn more about the different plants that played a major role in shaping this country’s culinary delights at the Ubin Fruit Orchard before ending the tour at Teck Seng’s Place – a restored Chinese kampung house.
