Pulau Ubin is Best Camping Spot in Singapore
Posted on May 18, 2019
Whether you’re thinking of breathtaking scenery, serene solitude or good family bonding, no holiday in the city can beat the classic camping trip.
Get up close and personal with Mother Nature, curl up in a warm sleeping bag next to a campfire, peer up at the glittering stars and enjoy a few yummy s’mores. A camping trip in the arms of Mother Nature can be quite an incomparable experience.
In Singapore, we have a unique and nostalgic island enclave like no other. Pulau Ubin has a rustic air and feel that you can hardly find elsewhere in Singapore, or most parts of the urbanized world. Be transported back into the era when diesel generators were used for electricity.
Mamam Beach and Jelutong Campsite are great places to set up base. To protect the environment, campfires and tying tent lines to the trees or cutting branches are prohibited.
There are still plenty of things you can do, such as bird-watching and bike-riding. Jelutong Campsite also has facilities to accommodate a large campfire, for a night of singing fun and camaraderie, not to mention campfire-cooked food.
Bear in mind that the water here is not suitable for drinking or bathing. Get the breather you need, away from the noise of city life, without having to spend an exorbitant amount to go abroad.
How to get to Pulau Ubin from Jayleen 1918 Hotel ?
At the bus stop outside the Clarke Quay MRT (Eu Tong Sen Street), board the SBS bus 2, alight at Changi Village Bus Terminal after about 1 hour. Then walk to Changi Point Ferry Terminal which about 300m away.
Take a bumboat from Changi Point Ferry Terminal, which is near the Changi Village Hawker Centre.
Just join the queue and the boats will leave when they have 12 persons. If there are less than 12 persons, you might have to wait a little while until enough people turn up.
Suggest you to buy some food and snack at the Changi Village Hawker Centre.
