Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

We hired bikes $29 for adult and childs bike plus helmet. It would be good if maps were available in the village, maybe there are, but... More

Tip #1: Start early in the day when it is not so hot (like around 7 – 8am from Changi) and the birds are still out looking for their breakfast. Tip #2: Since the place is only accessible by bus, take bus no. 2 from Tanah Merah MRT station or else take a cab all the way. Estimate cab fare... More

Bumboats go from ferry terminal every time there are approx 12 passengers waiting, 10 mins gets you to a delightful island where you can hire a... More

There are multiple road and trail options for hiking and biking, lots of bike rental options, and some excellent wildlife and plant life sights to see. There are multiple eating options, with seafood a speciality. Many fishing spots are there, as... More

Just had a great short getaway from the hustle and bustle of Singapore. Pulau Ubin is just 10 mins away by ferry; bumboats leave the Changi Point Ferry Terminal next to the Changi Village Market & Hawker Centre. Real old school ... you get on first and your boat captain collects S$2.50 for a one-way fare; the boats whenever there... More

The Island was a nice get away from the modern city. We rented bikes, which was really easy, and it was easy to get around the island. It was a bit like travel back in time to get to the village, where you rent bikes and eat. We eat at a smaker place called Sin Lam Huat. Cheap, but fresh,... More
