Home to verdant nature, diverse habitats and Singapore’s last real kampong (‘village’ in Malay), Pulau Ubin provides visitors with a window into The Lion City’s past.
Unspoilt, rustic charm
Still, the charms of the island will captivate you, as it remains largely authentic, unspoilt and rustic, right down to the occasional whiffs of wildlife.
With an area of 10.2 square kilometres, this boomerang-shaped 1,020-hectare island sits just off the northeastern corner of mainland Singapore, in the Straits of Johor.
See if you can spot the abandoned quarries on Pulau Ubin, which means Granite Island in Malay.
