Pulau Ubin: "What more could you want?"

"Orchard Road can be seen in any developed city, but this little island is a real gem" said Jamie Bennett from Australia.
The Ubin Experience begins as soon as you step
on the slow boat from Changi Point.
I was thrilled to receive an email from Jamie who was recently holidaying with his family in Singapore. He had the following to say about Pulau Ubin:

I just spent a day at Pulau 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.

Kind regards
