Home to around 5.7 million people, Singapore is a cosmopolitan city-state that gained independence from the British in 1965. It is now one of the world’s leading economic centers in shipping and banking.
It will be a foodie’s dream, filled with delicious hawker stalls, delicious Indian food and fresh seafood. There are hiking trails where you can stretch your legs and the beach to relax and soak up the sun. Of course, the most important thing is that you need to find a comfortable hotel in Singapore.
Come to Singapore, we can go on a trip to Pulau Ubin. Pulau Ubin, also simply known as Ubin, is an island situated in the northeast of Singapore, to the west of Pulau Tekong. There is also an interesting legend about Pulau Ubin. Legend has it that Pulau Ubin was formed when three animals from Singapore (a frog, a pig and an elephant) challenged each other to a race to reach the shores of Johor.
The animals that failed would turn to stone. All three came across many difficulties and were unable to reach the shores of Johor. Therefore, the elephant and pig together turned into Pulau Ubin whilst the frog became Pulau Sekudu.
So, how do I get to Pulau Ubin ? You can take a boat from Changi Pier (now known as Changi Ferry Terminal) near the Changi Village Hawker Centre.
Cost of the bumboat: $3/person (wef 7 Sep 2015). Maximum 12 passengers. Additional $2 per bicycle.[ It should be noted that there is no fixed departure time for the boat. A boat will leave when there are 12 persons to fill it up. (daily, 6am-7pm)]
Attractions worth checking out on Pulau Ubin : Pekan Quarry, Puaka Hill’s view, Pulau Ubin Tree, Chek Jawa boardwalk and House No 1 at Check Jawa. Believe you will not be disappointed.
