Pulau Ubin - scenery

My goodness this is the first time I step onto Pulau Ubin. Really surprised that I like it so much. So full of nature and good food too. :)

An abandoned granite quarry - it looked like a very beautiful lake now.

Granite quarrying was once a major industry on Ubin. The first quarry was started in the 1800's. Ubin's granite was used to build the Horsburgh Lighthouse and Raffles Lighthouse, the two extreme points of Singapore. And, by some accounts, the Causeway linking Singapore to Malaysia as well.

Walking around the village and we saw some nice houses.

An abandoned house

This is one of the most grand malay house on the island.

Besides wild boars, there are also many wild monkeys on the island. Please dont feed them.

I guess this is the one and only post box on Pulau Ubin near the jetty.
