Hi guys, I'm still gonna explore the other side of Singapore and now I'm gonna visit Ubin Island. For going to this island, you can go by taxi but it'll costly or you can take MRT to Tanah Merah Station and continue by SBS Bus Transit Number 2 to Changi Village Terminal. Arrive at Changi Village Terminal, then go to Changi Point Ferry Terminal. It's very easy because there are many directions, just follow it.
From the port take bumboat to Ubin Island, the cost is about SGD 30 per person. This boat trip take 15 minutes to arrive at Ubin Island's port. During this trip you'll see the clear sea water with tall buildings as your background.
Arriving at Ubin Island, there's tourist information center near the port where you can rent cycle or taxi. For saving money and want to feel more adventours, I choose to rent a bike only for SGD 10. Ubin Island is quite wide and some ways still waving, but don't worry because you'll not get lost because there are many map in this island. Also, you'll meet some people who jogging or walking around this island.
So many things which you can see in this island, such as quarry, moslem's grief, Fo Shan Ting Da Bao Gong Temple and the famous one, Chek Jawa Wetland. Be carefull if you're gonna explore this island alone, because there are many signs of dangerous spot where you can't visit.
