Overview
More
The island to the northeast of Singapore is the only place to see an example of the traditional kampong villages that once covered the city-state. It’s a go-to spot for cyclists and hikers with miles of nature trails that weave through old rubber plantations and seaside ecosystems no longer found on the main island. Get there from Changi Point Ferry Terminal via a traditional bumboat for $2.50 a seat – captains will leave only when all seats are sold or if you pay the difference.

It takes about 10 minutes by bumboat to return 50 years back. Old kampong houses, no electricity or running water and jungle wild life. You can rent a bike or walk around, if you don’t mind heat and humidity. Bumboats wait to gather 12 persons,...More

In Palau Ubin, you will discover Singapore in a very different “time zone”... The good old “ kampung days” of yesteryear. The rustic charms of the good old days...where everything seems to move at a much slower pace. Walk slowly and enjoy the flora and...More

If artificial Sentosa is not your thing then plan a trip to this small more or less natural island which still retains native forest and wetland vegetation. Look out for the macaque monkeys, wild pigs and many birds. There are various trails for biking and...More
