|The Ubin Experience begins as soon as you step|
on the slow boat from Changi Point.
I just spent a day at Palau Ubin, it was the best day out of 7 spent in Singapore.
I would recommend this opportunity to all travellers and locals.
Orchard Road can be seen in any developed city, but this little island is a real gem and provided a break from all the manufactured rides and a refreshing opportunity to jump on a bike and rediscover the natural Singapore again.
We saw pigs, fish, birds, snakes and monkeys, what more could you want.
I hope Singapore can keep this beautiful island, and it should be promoted more to visitors.
