With a 10-minute bumboat ride from the Changi Point Ferry Terminal at Changi Village, you can be transported back to 1960s rural Singapore on Pulau Ubin. This island in the north-east of Singapore is one of the last bastions of kampong life in Singapore.
On the island, you can visit its wooden house villages, jetties, disused granite quarries and rubber plantations, set amidst swaying coconut trees and unpaved roads.From the main village, Ubin Town, you can rent bicycles or embark on self-guided walks around the island. You will also find restaurants and provision shops in the charming village.
To the North is the Chek Jawa Wetlands. A 1.1 km boardwalk and the 20-metre tall Jejawi Tower allows you to explore and appreciate the rich eco-system along the rocky shoreline.
