On Saturday, I went to Pulau Ubin for Ubin Day which is a month long celebration with activities and ends next week. Catch a ferry from Changi Ferry Terminal. Each boat ride costs $3 for one way. No tickets, just pay the boat owner.
It was drizzling but nice and cool. I’d a raincoat and an umbrella. Do bring insect repellant, a bottle of water and some snacks if you’re with kids. Otherwise just buy at the Changi Village hawker centre next to the Ferry Terminal.
I enjoyed very much the kampong trail guided walk which I understand will be free every 3rd Saturday even after Ubin Day.
I’ve been to the chek jawa conservation biodiversity tour 6 years ago. Do sign up for the limited spaces.
Have you seen such huge blue pea flowers – natural blue dye for staining rice.
Ginger flower for rojak. Smells so fragrant.
And golden papaya.
