Chek Jawa is a must visit if you find yourself on Pulau Ubin, but I suggest you hire a bike to get there. The habitat is well maintained with excellent walkways, including a coastal track. There is a good selection of wildlife including the usual...More

Because they are there. Why go to Chek Jawa? You wouldn't go out of your way for it. But you won't have to as you are already on Pulau Ubin and it is 80m down the road. Top surveyor. Solid jetty. Imaginatively named island.

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

Nestled at the eastern side of Pulao Ubin, the wetlands offer great views of the ocean and surrounding habitat. This place is also home to lots of wildlife. I'd recommend visiting at low tide (see more marine life). There's 2 walks, a coastal and mangrove,...More
