Pulau Ubin

Pulau Ubin is a small island situated in the north east of Singapore,to the west of Pulau Tekong.Granite quarrying supported a few thousand settlers on Pulau Ubin in the 1960s,but only about a hundred villagers live there today.It is one of the last rural areas to be found in Singapore,with an abundance of natural flora and fauna.

Legend has it that Pulau Ubin was formed when three animals from Singapore (a frog,a pig and an elephant) challenged each other to a race to reach the shores of Johor.The animals that failed would turn to stone.All three came across many difficulties and were unable to reach the shores of Johor.Therefore,the elephant and pig together turned into Pulau Ubin whilst the frog became Pulau Sekudu or Frog Island.
