These wetlands are around 2 Kim's away from the Pulau Ubin jetty. Best is to hire a cycle and it would take around 20 mins. You also have mini cabs that also does a pickup and drop. You may check for free walking tours at the info counter. I don't think it happens Everyday. If possible time your visit to... More

There is a great coastal boardwalk and an observation tower which give great views over this area.Both are reasonably accessible although the tower can be tiring - but the views well worth the effort.

Always wanted to visit this place and finally went on a week day morning. Should have checked the tides times because it was high tides when we were there so there was not much to see except the sea. Broad walks were nice and suit family visits. If not Cycling, the only other mode of transportation is to take the... More

This place is located on Pulau Ubin island. You will find all tiny/small wild creatures. A place where you can watch forest lizards, snakes, forest squirrels, mud crabs etc.. You can walk through the lanes which are laid specifically for public convenience and have a good study of the wild fauna and flora in a peaceful environment.

Walking on the raised platform allows one to see the magrove swamp without wetting your feet, nor destrying the ecosystem below. Exceleltn way of "having your cake and eating it", I guess... LOL

The wetlands area of Pulau Ubin are excellent with loads of wildlife, we were captivated with a lizard hunting mud crabs . The most important thing to check is the tide times. No point coming in the morning at 9am if the tide does not go out till 3pm for example. It swings twice a day so make sure otherwise... More
