Today, Pulau Ubin is a laid-back island where life seems to move at a slower pace. On Ubin one can still experience how life in a kampong (Malay for village) must have been in the sixties.Get enchanted by the rustic charm of the island and capture the tranquility of village life as we walk through shady coconut groves, along prawn ponds lined with mangrove trees and past old kampong houses surrounded by untamed vegetable gardens. Listen to the warblings of the straw-headed bulbul, a globally endangered bird, admire the iconic hornbills or try to spot a whip snake in the foliage beside the trail.Although most of the trail follows paved roads and well-maintained footpaths, a reasonable amount of fitness is needed for this 2.5-hour hike. The tour will end at Ubin village.

This leisurely hike takes us on a journey back in time, a time when people used to live in kampongs instead of housing estates.

The label "Ulu" is generously applied to any out of the way place where nature is still somewhat untamed and wild. Really ulu places have plenty of wilderness and rustic charm to offer. Contrary to popular belief, there are still places left in Singapore that match the above description. Ulu Singapore is founded by an experienced nature guide - Robert, specialising in taking the curious and adventurous on guided nature walks to the remote and rustic corners of the city.

Robert guided us through Sungei Buloh today for 2.5 hours. He is very knowledgeable about the flora and fauna including the migrating birds. If you like a hike and are interested to hear the insights from an expert, I would definitely recommend this trip

Robert is an absolute gem! His knowledge and passion shine through and made our walk around Bukit Timah Forest Reserve really interesting. Makes you look at nature and foliage with new eyes and gets you to appreciate so much more. Can’t wait to do more trips with him and discover new facets of this island we call home! Really great! Everyone should go!

I'm happy to hear you and your husband enjoyed the walk through the rainforest and that I've been able to show you a few new facets of Singapore's rich natural heritage.
