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.
Escape to Ubin! Life in the slow lane starts as you join the queue for the bumboat that leaves Changi for the 15-minute ride to Pulau Ubin. Stroll or pedal through rustic trails under swaying coconut palms, past quaint kampung houses with their kitchen gardens.

Some travel tips
- Expect long queues for the bumboats on 21 May (Sat) Vesak Day and 22 May (Sun) 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.

Bumboats for Pesta Ubin night activities
If you are taking part in one of the night activities, arrangements have been made for a bumboat (or two) to be available for your travel back to the mainland. They will charge about $50 per boat instead of $36 per boat. With only one or two bumboats, it may take a while to transport a large group back to the mainland. Thank you for your patience!
