Escape the hustle and bustle of Singapore with this tour to Pulau Ubin island

Pulau Ubin is an island located off north-eastern Singapore. Travelling to this island is like going back in time to Singapore in the 60s. Some of our last villages or 'kampongs' are found here. There is a rustic beauty to this place which you cannot find on the mainland.

One of the places you must visit is Chek Jawa, located off the eastern coast of Pulau Ubin. This place is so unique that you probably would not find another area in Singapore with such a rich biodiversity - coastal hill forest, mangroves, sandbar, seagrass lagoon, rocky shore, and coral rubble area. Some plants and animals not commonly found on mainland Singapore have been discovered here.

Come enjoy a leisurely day at Pulau Ubin, away from the hustle and bustle of city life!

A Recent Review of this tour

This is a wonderful tour and a nice break from the city. Our tour guide Wang Ling was so knowledgeable about wildlife and we learned so much from her. We also had a delightful lunch at a hawker center afterwards. I highly recommend this tour!
