Have you been to Ubin?

Take a trip to Pulau Ubin in the North Eastern part of Singapore and you’ll see Singapore 50 years ago.

It’s a great place to enjoy some quiet from the traffic in Singapore. The only traffic at Pulau are hikers and cyclists.

We walked around the island instead of renting a bicycle which may be more tiring. Some tips when heading to Ubin:

  1. Check out the tide times to see Chek Jawa in its bare glory of corals. You may be visiting early in the morning or in the evening. 
  2. Bring a poncho as you never know when the weather may turn nasty and there is hardly any shelter when you are in the middle of a foot march (like what we did). 
  3. Bring lots of water as there are limited places for you to buy water or snacks. The shops around the jetty will be the only chance you’ll get. 
  4. Sunhat, sunscreen, sunnies are all useful under the heat. 
  5. Bug repellent for those with sensitive skin. 
  6. A change of clothes after returning to Tanah Merah Jetty for comfort.
