Pulau Ubin Island

My favorite memories of my Singapore trip is Day 9 (Dec 30 Sun). We
went to Pulau Ubin island. What
is the only activity on this island? Cycling.

It was fun to see people of all ages, from families to large groups of
teenagers to avid cyclists all here for the same reason. It reminded
me of Cubbon Park on a Sunday evening.

The first thing you see on entering the island is shops on either side
to rent out cycles. We went in, took cycles and started pedaling, all
in a matter of a few minutes.

Those giant “Thailand coconuts” were simply fulfilling.

Next, we randomly cycled and ended up at Chek Jawa. We read about the
sea life conservation efforts that go on here. The highlight was the
bungalow, along with the view of the sea.

make it clear that the good photos here are not taken by me).

We had become obsessed with the view here and just enjoying the
sunset. Finally, we had to push ourselves to explore some more and
return back the bikes. We even did some bird-watching (seriously).

I was sad to take a bumboat to get back to the mainland, but I did get
to see the planes dive to land in the airport which is right next to
the beach.
