After touring bustling Singapore, the following day I pushed off on a “bumboat” for a 20 minute crossing to Pulau Ubin, an experience of stepping back in time to what Singapore once looked like. On this eco-island I was greeted by herons, kingfishers, straw-headed bulbuls,...More

Hidden at the end of the island Chek Jawa offers at least three distinct experiences. The visitors centre and jetty with a wealth of boards give you great background info. It is also amazing to see this restored colonial house a slice of Surrey in...More
