Pulau Ubin is an untouched island off eastern Singapore, home to the last 'kampung' (village). A visit takes you back to the simpler pleasures of the 1960's. And you don’t need your passport.

Some travel tips
- On long weekends, expect long queues for the bumboats after 8am at Changi to Ubin; and after noon at Ubin to Changi.
- Parking may also be very limited at Changi after 8am. Carpool or take public transport.
- Even on normal weekends, the queue for the bumboat can be quite long after 10am at Changi to Ubin and near sunset at Ubin to return to Changi.
- Bumboat services wind down at sunset (around 7pm). Sometimes (not always) there is one boat providing services after that. If you plan to leave after sunset, make direct arrangements with a bumboat operator (when you arrive at Ubin) if you want to be sure of a boat.
