Legend has it that the island was a giant turtle which
transformed itself into a large rock to save shipwrecked
sailors. Taoists also make annual pilgrimages to Tua
Pekong Temple on the island during 9th lunar month, while
Muslims visit Kramat Kusu, a Malay Shrine.
A bumboat from Changi Point takes you to Pulau Ubin, where
the lifestyle hasn't changed much in the last 30 years.
One can still see traditional fishing huts called "Kelongs",
duck and prawn farms, go mountain-biking and even camp
out. or check out Ubin's natural haven of flora and fauna
in its mangrove and forest areas. A seafood restaurant,
the magnificent Ma Chor temples by the seashore and
limestone quarries complete the island.
Perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving,
Sisters Island is also ideal for picnic.
