What you'll do

Hope on a bumboat and head to Pulau Ubin, an island off the northeast of Singapore. Considered the last kampong (village) in Singapore, one is transported back in time to life in the '60s, where water is still drawn from wells, stoves fired by wood and lights powered by generator. Explore the natural habitat at Chek Jawa Wetlands and appreciate one of Singapore's richest ecosystems. Tour a fruit orchard and get to know the different fruits like durian, rambutan and jackfruit among others, grown by the villagers as crop. Visit a kampong house to see how life was like and the everyday activities that go on in the household. A great way to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

Keith

Hello I am Keith, born and bred in Singapore. I am a part time traveller, full time engineer. As a traveller, I take pleasure in exploring places where locals go to and watching people in their everyday activities. I relish the conversation with the locals, where I get to know of their culture, customs and way of life. I believe travel should be about people, not just places. Looking for a local who can show you around Singapore like a friend would? look no further. I enjoy meeting people and introducing Singapore to foreign friends, especially the non-touristy local places. i am sincere, flexible when it comes to the itinerary, and enjoys the exchange of culture with my guests. Join me to explore some of the best non-touristy local experiences in Singapore. I will show you the tips and recommendations that only locals know.
