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.

Catch the boat at Changi Point jetty (nearest MRT is Tampines ir Tanah Merah-take bus #2). If in a taxi from the MRT it's $10. The boat takes 19 mins and runs 11 am till 7 pm regularly when there's enough passengers. The island is apparently like Singapore used to be, kampongs (villages) small beaches and walking or biking trails.... More

Yes, that's what I want to say, when are you actually going. I went there with friends on a sunny day, tired and most of the beaches were closed due to shore erosion. It was a bit tiring day, buy yeah people were there camping, cooking having fun with family relaxing in the tents. Later on we went to Changi... More

Worth to spend a whole day here. You can come form Singapore with bamboats, this is already the first adventure. Low cost, and really exciting. Takes about 10-12 minutes to go there. Go in time to avoid long queue. When you arrive to the island you can rent a bike (there are sooo many places to rent, but you should... More

Pulau ubin is great, after a few days in Singapore it was nice to get off the mainland and into a bit of dirt!! It costs 5SD for a return trip on one of many random boats with captains of varying degrees of madness. Once on the island hire a bike and get there early, it gets really hot in... More

Ok, there are good things and bad things about this little island retreat. First the good. The boat ride and any activities on the island are very inexpensive, with $2.50 crossing and $10 bike rental. The island is criss crossed with plenty of roads and nature trails that gives you a little taste of a tropical island without the travel.... More

Such a nice island to take a break from the busy city life. It will take you some time to get there if you prefer traveling by public transport, so you might consider taking a cab to the ferry terminal. From there one small boats which can only hold 12 people will take you to the island. This island gives... More

I was there this weekend. Just took the 2.5 SGD ferry, and in 20 minutes, already there. When you arrive, you can already see all the places renting bikes for different prices, according to the bike's quality. Got myself a bike for 15 SGDs and just started cycling. It is just so pleasant to just go around and enjoy the... More

My parents live in Singapore and we're always looking for different things to do when I visit. Would definitely recommend a trip to Pulau Ubin if you want to escape the city for a day. We got the ferry at about 10.30am with no problem at all, waited less than 5 mins to get on a boat. Once on the... More

Spent a full day on the island, exploring on bicycle. Bikes available for rent from a few shops near jetty and restaurants. Flat rate rental for full day hire with bikes available for primary school kids as well as younger kids who need training wheels.
