wonderful nature through your different senses along our Sensory
Be transported back in time to 1960s Singapore as you embark on a trip to Pulau Ubin. Shaped like a boomerang, this 1, 020-hectare island is home to Singapore's last village or kampongs, as well as the Chek Jawa Wetlands, one of Singapore's richest ecosystems. Just a 15 minute bumboat ride from Changi Jetty is a rustic paradise, in what seems a world away from urban Singapore. As such, why not take the time to bring the whole family down to enjoy Pulau Ubin's rural pleasures. Experience Ubin's wonderful nature through your different senses along our Sensory Trail. It is an easy walk. It will take you through the backyard planting of the Pulau Ubin village home, where some fruit trees such as papaya, banana, rambutan and breadfruit etc are planted. You can see the different vegetables, spices and herbs that the villagers used to plant for their own consumption.

Ketam Bike Trail
The most well-known attraction at Pulau Ubin is this mountain biking track. There are bicycle rental shops on the island where you can rent a bicycle for an entire day. The track is approximately 8km long, and along the way, you get to go through different terrains ranging from meadows to thick jungle foliage. With shelters located throughout the track, take a rest anytime and enjoy the great view of nature.
Chek Jawa Wetlands
An inter tidal flat on Pulau Ubin, taking the boardwalk (cycling is not allowed here) at Chek Jawa provides a sight of nature that we normally would not associate with our urban city state. The place is amazingly untouched and undeveloped and is unique in that several ecosystems can be found within the area. Catch sight of creatures and plants which have disappeared from mainland Singapore. Walk along and explore the interesting rock formations along Chek Jawa's natural rocky shores as well as the corals and sea stars that adorn the area.
