Pulau Ubin

A quick island hop takes you to a place of timeless natural beauty that seems a world away from fast-paced Singapore. 

Pulau Ubin is only a 15-minute boat ride to the northeast of the mainland but it couldn’t be more different from urban Singapore. This is where you’ll experience village life as it was in another era (the 1960s to be exact) — folks here still get their water from wells. Get around the island on the many hiking trails and cycling tracks that will take you past abandoned granite quarries and into every corner of this tiny tropical wonder.
