A 10-minute bumboat ride (motorised sampan) from Changi Point Ferry Terminal lands you on the shores of Pulau Ubin. Singaporeans like to wax nostalgic about Ubin's kampung (village) atmosphere and, one small resort aside, it has thus far resisted the lure of cashed-up developers. It remains a rural, unkempt expanse of jungle. Tin-roofed buildings bake in the sun, chickens squawk and panting dogs slump in the dust. The best way to get around is by bike (per day S$6 to S$12).
