Pulau Ubin Day Escapade

Step back into time, to the 60s for an experience in a ‘living museum’. As we embark on a trip to Pulau Ubin, experience Singapore’s last village or kampongs life as well as visiting the famous Chek Jawa Wetlands, one of Singapore’s richest ecosystems. Home to diverse habitats and teeming ecosystems, the island is the perfect gate away destination for nature lovers.

Day 1


0830 hours        Assemble at Changi Point Ferry Terminal. After meeting your local guide, proceed for a 15 minute bumboat boat ride to Pulau Ubin, the popular haunt for nature lovers and day trippers unwinding from the bustle of the city.

0845 hours         On arrival at Pulau Ubin, we will first visit the Nature Gallery, where a briefing of the tour will be conducted.

0900 hours         Hop on a local van and proceed to Chek Jawa Wetlands located at the eastern part ofthe island. This ecosystem is a confluence of six distinct habitats, including coastal forests, rocky beaches and a mangrove swamp. On arrival, first we visit House No 1, a visitor centre built in the 1930s and restored to its present Tudor style finest in 2003. Thereafter, we shall proceed to walk the two routes to see the whole wetland, the Coastal Loop (600m) and Mangrove loop (500m) broad walks with lookout platforms and shelters. Learn about the rich biodiversity through the educational panels and directional signs installed along the boardwalk. Look out for fiddler crabs, red jungle fowls and mudskippers, among many other wondrous creatures as you walk on the broad walks. Along the way, climb the seven-storey high (20m) Jejawi Tower to view the tree canopy and observe the biodiversity.

Next, we shall continue our drive to the northern part of the island, enroute stop for picture taking at the Balai Quarry, passing through the National Police Cadet Corp and bringing us to the western part of the island. Stop for photo taking at the Kekek Quarry
as well as Ketam Quarry, base of the challenging Ketam Mountain Bike Path which snakes across 10 km with challenging slopes and rock-littered descents. 

Next stop is a hike to Puaka Hill, the tallest point on Pulau Ubin at 74 metres high overlooking the Ubin Granite Quarry with scenic views of Singapore and Malaysia. The hike up only takes about 15 to 20 minutes to complete but due to its rocky and steep trail, you’ll be panting by the time you reach its peak. 

Finally we will round up our road trip with a visit to the Butterfly Hill, a knoll created specially to conserve and showcase butterflies, attracts about 140 species of butterflies.

1200 hours         Upon return to the main village, proceed to jetty for your bumboat ride to Smith Marine Floating Restaurant.
1230 hours         Enjoy a sumptuous seafood lunch at Smith Marine Floating Restaurant, a modern kelong located between Pulau Ubin and Changi Point Ferry Terminal. Dining here is quite an experience, where you can catch your own fish in a ‘sure catch’ pond, teeming with snappers and seabass and choosing how you’d like your fish to be cook.  (Only 1 fish per table. You may still choose to fish at an optional cost of S$35 per fish to bring home) Enjoy your lunch here in the middle of the sea with its freshest seafood and beautiful coastline.
1430 hours         Return to Changi Point Ferry Terminal and tour ends. You may choose to visit the many shops and cafes at Changi Village to round up your trip before heading home.
