The thrill of cycling along solitary, quiet roads with surrounding greenery has always caught the eye of many a person. This is the charm of the island of Pulau Ubin. Often considered to be the last of the villages in Singapore, exploring this island takes you back to the sixties with its rustic wooden villages, rubber plantations and abandoned quarries.
Even more so, it helps one enjoy life’s simple pleasures. Chek Jawa, an ancient 5000 year old coral reef is infamous for its bustling marine wildlife inclusive of sea hares, starfishes, sand dollars, octopuses and more. Due to it being abundant in various species of flora and fauna, this island proves to be the perfect spot for camping activities. Provision of wooden boardwalks help visitors observe plant and wildlife more carefully. However, it is not advisable to do so during times of high tides. Other things to do at Pulau Ubin include going on guided/unguided nature walks.
