We had some stuff to do in Singapore, so we decided to take a little extra time and make a trip of it. Chad convinced me to go out to a lovely little island just off the mainland, called Ubin.
Then you can park the bike, stroll around a nature preserve, and climb a tower to look out over the rain forest.
A boardwalk brings you along mangrove forests and then out to the beach.
It's really a lovely place, and a perfect antidote to the intense urban-ness of Jakarta. I've been a little lukewarm on Singapore in the past, because it's mainly marketed as a shopping destination, but Ubin is great - I'd go back anytime, and I hope we will soon.
