Pulau Ubin stole my heart, I had no idea really what to expect when this trip came up on my itinerary. The contrast is extraordinary, from the beautifully modern side of Singapore, to this simple, humble island life. These are some of my favourite images from my trip.
Visiting Pulau Ubin is like stepping back into 1960s Singapore. The island is home to the last village or ‘Kampongs’. Around 100 people still live here relying on wells for water, diesel generators for electricity and fishing for food. If you visit; there are bicycle rentals to explore the island or hire a driver for 2-3 hours like we did.
Bumboats operate from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. The ride takes 10 minutes costs $3 per person. Trips are not scheduled and the boat will only set off when they are 12 passengers.
