Experience Ubin's wonderful nature through your different senses along our Sensory Trail. The walk is easy-going and takes about one and a half hours to complete.
An excellent introduction to the rustic and natural character of the island, you will be able to touch, see or smell fruit trees, spices and herbs for cooking, plants used in traditional medicine and native plants of the mangrove forest.
The trail was developed in 1995 to allow the visually handicapped a chance to experience Ubin using their senses of touch and smell. The project was undertaken by the SAVE (Students Against Violating the Environment) club of Singapore American School (SAS) and the Nature Society (Singapore) (NSS).
In 2000, the trail was formally adopted by the SAS (Singapore American School) and SAVH (Singapore Association of the Visually Handicapped) under the National Parks Board's Adopt-a-Park Scheme.
There is also a small garden with fruit trees, spices and herbs for cooking, plants used in traditional medicine and native plants of the mangrove forest.
Guided tours are charged at $60 per group (for a maximum of 15 persons) up to a maximum of 5 groups.
Booking is open from now till 10 December 2014.
