Nature Walk at Ubin Island and Chek Jawa

Nature Walk at Ubin Island and Chek Jawa

Be transported back in time to 1960s Singapore as you embark on a bumboat to this rustic island. It feels like time stood still... As you set foot on the island, you will immediately feel calm and relaxed, leaving behind the hectic pace of city life. The setting of the island brings back many childhood memories for me; running around the kampong (village). catching toads in streams to frighten adults, climbing trees to pluck fruits to eat, etc etc etc. The island is a treasure trove of biodiversity and haven for many wildlife, because of the many natural habitats; estuarine and coastal mangroves, secondary and coastal forest, rocky and sandy shores, and intertidal zone. If you are done exploring "City in a Garden", come discover "Kampong on an Island".
