The unfolding of Pulau Ubin
Ten minutes away from mainland by jetty, the island of Pulau Ubin is an experience of the senses. Once an important granite producer for the mainland, Pulau Ubin is better known for its rustic charm and village life.
Lesser known is the diverse flora and fauna and the denizens that continue to make Ubin its home. The island is a miniature paradise of biological diversity; wild pigs and jungle fowls still rule the forest. For the many who venture beyond the common trails it is also a playground for the adventurous.
