Pulau Ubin's lure is the rustic and natural charm.
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. Malay kampungs and a Chinese village are the only reminders left of Singapore in the 1960's. The adventurous will find bicycles trails a challenge and the sandy beaches a natural campsite.
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. The endangered Straw-headed Bulbul still sings freely on the island.
