The island to the northeast of Singapore is the only place to see an example of the traditional kampong villages that once covered the city-state. It’s a go-to spot for cyclists and hikers with miles of nature trails that weave through old rubber plantations and seaside ecosystems no longer found on the main island. Get there from Changi Point Ferry Terminal via a traditional bumboat for $2.50 a seat – captains will leave only when all seats are sold or if you pay the difference.

Pulau Ubin offers visitors a different perspective of Singapore, it being a rustic and relatively undeveloped island from its mainland counterpart. If you're a nature lover, you'll be pleasantly surprised to note that Ubin is rich in wildlife. In my trips there, I have been fortunate to have been able to spot wild boars, oriental pied-hornbills, monitor lizards, mudskippers, stingrays,... More

We took the "bumboat' from Changi village which is also easy to each. The island has exceptionally good signposting and is easy to get around even on foot. We definitely intend to go back again and this time to hire bikes which are very reasonable to explore further. For those who do walk or cycle there are rain shelters just... More

The main activities on this last bastion of rustic Singapore are trekking and cycling which the latter is the more popular choice. The ride to and fro the island is $2.50 per head per trip with the boat driver insisted to move off only after the capacity of 12 passengers is filled up. The best time to be on the... More

It's quite an adventure to get there. You can just go by bus from Singapore city or to make it more interesting take the train to Tanah Merah and then catch a bus to the jetty. Take a bum boat across to the island and then sort out a bike. Don't just stop at the first bike rental as I... More

Good place to get away from the frenetic pace of the rest of Singapore. Pack a picnic lunch, take a boat over for a day trip, hire a mountain bike and go for a ride and explore. Had our first try of durian here - mixed feelings - not really sure what to make of it.

The last kampong in Singapore lies on this island. A quiet respite to the hustle and bustle of Singapore mainland. This place is great for nature lovers and people who just need a short time away from busyness. Take the bumboat from Changi Village and step back in time to enjoy the slower paced life. No rush. Just chill.

The ferry leaves once there are 12 people present, unless you want to pay the remainder going up to S$30. We did not have to wait one minute as the ferry was waiting for us. Great start! On arrival, it's a bit hectic with everyone trying to rent a bike, but take your time and you'll find something decent. We... More
