The crazy and impulsive decision of mine last weekend landed us in Pulau Ubin. It rained throughout the day while we were there. It did not dampen our mood, on the contrary it was kinda fun walking in the rain with no one around and the day was so much cooler because of it.

Pulau Ubin (Ubin island) is located northeast of Singapore mainland and the second largest island after Sentosa island. It is the last remaining village/Kampong that can be found in Singapore. There are only about a hundred villagers living there. The bumboat ride from Changi point ferry terminal is about 10 to 15 minutes to the island. It costs SGD 2.50/person and the boat will leave when they have 12 people.

Once you are in the island you can rent a bicycle touring the island; mountain biking; bird watching; nature walking; tracking; fishing; camping at designated areas and kayaking. It is lots of fun if you don’t mind getting dirty and shedding sweat doing those activities. Alternatively, you can take a van touring the island.

I have many pictures that I will post daily while I take a break. I hope you enjoy it.
