Connect with me to rediscover Singapore’s multi-ethnic heritage, explore must-see places, taste local cuisines, and experience a close-up encounter with native wildlife and much more! As a 3rd generation local, I have lots of personal stories to share!

Main highlights of your itinerary:

  • A 10 mins bumboat ride which will transport one back to Singapore in the 1960s.
  • Pulau Ubin (meaning Granite Island in Malay) holds Singapore’s last remaining kampong (village in Malay)!
  • Come and meet a few of the local residents and learn about their simple way of life.
  • At the eastern part of the island, discover 6 different Eco-systems and expect surprising encounters with the wildlife! Climb up a 21-meter tower that offers an amazing panoramic view of the wetlands and neighboring islands too.
  • Of course there are many stories to be told; WWII, wild ‘immigrants’, German Girl Shrine, and much more!
  • After all the above and before heading back to the mainland Singapore, enjoy a refreshing coconut accompanied by kampong cuisine.

Available on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday, this tour will take approximately 4 hours (9am – 1pm).

To fully enjoy and appreciate the local guide experience, small group (max 6 pax) bookings are preferred.

*This experience will only take place if a minimum group of 4 pax is formed.
