Eight Hours in Pulau Ubin, Singapore

I'm currently writing from the Singapore airport, waiting for my flight to Bangkok, Thailand. I had about a nine-hour layover, and decided to skip the hustle and bustle of the city ( I know, I do realize that's counter intutive in Singapore) and visit the little developed Pulau Ubin. The destination is known for being the last undeveloped area in the region, and a haven for bike tourists. I found a deal to hire a "mountain bike," for the day for a little under $6 USD. Here are some photos of what the Pulau has to offer:

The Celestial Resort runs deals for a full day of biking combined with either a fish spa or kayaking for about $8 USD
