A Visit to Pulau Ubin

We made an impromptu trip to Pulau Ubin on a Sunday a couple of weeks ago. Pulau Ubin is an island off eastern Singapore and often considered the last ‘kampung’ (village) in Singapore. A stroll through Ubin takes you back to Singapore in the 1960’s with the simpler pleasures of life. The slow lane starts as soon as you join the queue for the bumboat at Changi. It was actually raining cats and dogs on that morning. When we arrived there, it was still drizzling.

It cost $2.50 per pax for the ride on the bumboat.

We love to visit places that are laid back.

Traditional coffeeshops are still plying their businesses.

A simple meal for us. The price was slightly more expensive than heartland coffeeshops.

 We are here today at the right time. Today is Ubin Day 2015. The kids have the opportunities to engage in plays and exhibits viewing.

We want to thank the volunteers from NUS for explaining to us about wildlife and how human actions affect them.

Durian season is here again! It’s durians galore!

These friendly Malay friends sell durians for just $2 each. The Taiwanese students love durians so much that they return to buy again.

This is their water supply. We need to be more appreciative and support water conservation.

It started to rain again and we had to return to Changi Ferry terminal. We will definitely be back again. 🙂
