The Ubin Way============Pesta Ubin is a great opportunity for visitors to experience and practice the kinder, gentler way of life on Ubin. Hopefully, visitors will practice the Ubin Way beyond Pesta Ubin. With this in mind, please consider incorporating these elements of the Ubin Way in your activity:
* On Ubin, we greet others we meet. With a smile, a "Hello", "How was your day on Pulau Ubin?" Leave the city attitude behind! Respect the culture and get to know the people of Ubin.* On Ubin, we do not litter. We pick up litter that we see. And bring litter back to the mainland.* On Ubin, we are gentle with wildlife that we share the island with. So no balloons please, they kill marine life and wild life. Avoid noisy activities near wild places. Practice gentle nature photography. Don't pluck plants or harm animals. At night, use torchlight gently to avoid disturbing animals.* On Ubin, we try to minimise our footprint. Avoid/minimise bottled water, styrofoam, plastic bags, useless freebies, pamphlets and other one-time use articles.* Ubin has a wide variety of fun things to see and do. Tell your participants about these.* Encourage participants to patronise local businesses.
How long will Pesta Ubin last?========================Pesta Ubin will last four weeks. It will kick off 26 May (Sat) and end 24 Jun (Sun) with Ubin Day. It coincides with the June school holidays.
Which dates can I have my activity?=============================You may choose to have your activity on any day from 26 May (Sat) to 24 Jun (Sun). On weekdays and weekends. We are glad if you would like to repeat your activity on several dates.
But do note that Ubin is expected to be very crowded (leading to longer wait times for bumboats and other amenities) during the following* 29 May (Tue) Vesak Day. Plus many pilgrims will be going to Pulau Ubin for the Tua Pek Kong festival on 29 May - 3 Jun. * 15-17 Jun (Fri-Sun): Hari Raya long weekend.
