A small island off the north-eastern corner of mainland Singapore, Pulau Ubin brings you back in time to a rustic era of 1960s Singapore where you can see Singapore’s last villages or kampongs. The beautiful and natural areas on Pulau Ubin are great for wildlife and nature photography, the forest therapy and gorgeous landscapes, providing us a short getaway from fast paced city life on mainland Singapore. During Pesta Ubin 2024, you can Live.Love.Learn at Pulau Ubin from 8th to 23rd June, visiting, learning and exploring the natural beauty and wonders of Pulau Ubin.

I have been visiting and exploring Pulau Ubin since my scouting days. Pulau Ubin is a pretty accessible destination from mainland Singapore, it’s great and ideal for a lot of our outdoors recreation activities. We can do hiking, cycling, watching the beautiful sunset, exploring Chek Jawa Wetlands, wildlife and nature photography. 

It’s been some years since I last visited Pulau Ubin, I think this would be a great time for me to go for Pesta Ubin 2024, soaking in the Pesta Ubin festivities, activities and programmes, enjoying the great outdoors on Pulau Ubin, wildlife and nature photography, and hope to capture another gorgeous sunset from Pulau Ubin again. Here are some photos that I took at Pulau Ubin during my visit in 2016 when the Singapore Heritage Festival 2016 was held at Pulau Ubin!
