What is Pulau Ubin?

Pulau Ubin is an untouched island off eastern Singapore, home to the last ‘kampung‘ (village). A visit takes you back to the simpler pleasures of the 1960’s. And you don’t need your passport.

Escape to Ubin! Life in the slow lane starts as you join the queue for the bumboat that leaves Changi for the 15-minute ride to Pulau Ubin. Stroll or pedal through rustic trails under swaying coconut palms, past quaint kampung houses with their kitchen gardens. Explore flourishing mangroves, lotus-covered ponds. Peek into hidden temples, stop by secluded beaches. Spot hornbills, wild boar and more. Chat with laid-back villagers as you enjoy a cold fresh coconut. On Ubin, the food tastes better, air is fresher, sights and sounds soothing to the soul.

What is Pesta Ubin?

Pesta Ubin is a kampung-style Open House at Singapore’s last rustic island, Pulau Ubin! Pesta Ubin is the highlight of each year of ‘Celebrating Ubin’, which is made possible by the Friends of Ubin Network (FUN). FUN brings together those who are committed to working together for Ubin.

Pesta, pronounced ‘Pays-ta’, is Malay for festival or party. Pesta often describes festivities that bring a community together, such as a wedding; or a cultural celebration. (It is NOT an Italian dish: which is ‘pasta’.)

What’s Special about Pesta Ubin?

Once a year, people who love Ubin step up to share with the public their special slice of Pulau Ubin. Pesta Ubin activities are heartfelt, organic and led by the community.

Ubin’s unique charms are passionately highlighted in Pesta Ubin activities. Its culture, kampung life, nature and wildlife, Ubin land and sea. From Ubin Town to the quarries, and the waters around Pulau Ubin. Morning, noon and night!

Soak in the kinder, gentler way of life on Ubin during Pesta Ubin. Leave the city attitude behind, and get with The Ubin Way. On Ubin, we greet one another with a smile, a “Hello”, “How was your day?”. Respect the culture, get to know the quirky people of Ubin. Be gentle with wildlife that shares the island. Keep our footprint light so Ubin remains unspoiled for those who follow behind us.
