11 Sep (Sun): FREE evening walk at Ubin

Join the R.U.M. volunteers on a leisurely walk from Ubin Town to learn about nearby mangroves, and Ubin people and kampung culture.
MAD for musang at Pesta Ubin 2016

To celebrate Lantern Festival and the long weekend (12 Sep Mon is a public holiday), we are planning a special evening edition of this walk!

Bring your own lantern to light up during the walk, and a mooncake to share at the end of the walk!

It's a long weekend, so why not come earlier to Pulau Ubin for a slow day on this last unspoilt island! Have an Ubin home-style lunch, go cycling or just enjoy the kampung life before our evening walk.

Programme for the evening

5.30pm meet up at Uncle Lim's shop, 3min walk from the Ubin Jetty. Support him by getting your supplies at his shop (drinks, repellent, sunblock, etc). More details of Uncle Lim's shop and how to get there.

7pm sunset and arrival at Sungei Ubin beach. Learn more about the Lantern Festival from Phillip Lim. We light up our lanterns for a special walk back through kampung gardens at twilight.

7.30-8pm end at Ubin Town to share mooncakes and tea at the restaurant.

You can stay on for dinner at Ubin and go back much later.

Bumboats for your travel back to Changi will be arranged for 8.30pm and after dinner.

Cost: The walk is free! But you have to pay for your own bumboat to and from Pulau Ubin ($3 per person one way, may be a little more after 10pm).

All are welcomed! Children to be accompanied by parent/guardian.

Route includes earthen trails (not suitable for prams or wheelchairs). Route is about 3km.

In case of heavy rain, walk may be delayed but not cancelled. Walk continues in light rain if there is no lightning.
