{singapore} pulau ubin’s seaside

November 7, 2015

There’s more to Singapore than just the mainland. Not only is there Sentosa Island to its south, there’s also Pulau Ubin to its northeast. During my time in Singapore, I really wanted to spend some time on Pulau Ubin so I planned a day trip over to the island. Here’s part one of three of my Pulau Ubin adventures.

To get there, you have to go on a water taxi jetty kind of thing that only leaves the main shore from Changi Point when it has enough people. This proved to result in quite a wait because I got to the waiting area quite early in the morning and since it wasn’t that great of a weather day. Eventually the boat filled up though and we were able to make it over to the island fairly quickly. You can pretty easily tell from the pictures that this is a rather large island that relies heavily (at this point) on tourism. The seaside was certainly very beautiful though and I’m glad I got a chance to visit even though because most of it is uninhabited and just a place for nature to continue its course. Pulau Ubin is also home to Singapore’s last villages or kampongs and the island still retains the rustic beauty and simplicity of the 1960s.
