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. « less

The mountain bike trails are fantastic and worth the visit alone. Riding around the island is a must and not too challenging (there are also loads of places to rent a bike). The boat takes about ten minutes to get there and so it's a great trip if you are visiting Singapore but want something a bit more nature-focused as... More

This island has amazing scenery. As soon as you get there i would recommend to hire mountain bikes from the many rental stores around the entrance to the island. this is something that most people will not know about the island. if you go through one of the many paths around the usual bike trails which say's 'no entry,' you...

The perfect getaway from the Singapore's busy city life. Very easy to get to from the Changi Ferry point. Ride costs 2.5 SGD one way, provided there is 12 passengers per boat. You can also pay the total fare, if you do not feel like waiting (this applied to us on the way back). Trails and paved roads are safe... More

Spent a happy Friday cycling here in a hired mountain bike taking in the views. There are some trails including an obstacle park which are fun. Stay hydrated and enjoy.

My husband and my 80 year old mother ventured over to PU for a day trip. What a treat it was! We rented bicycles and took a leisurely ride around much of the island. My mom is slowing down some but still kept up and had a grand time. Most of the way is flat with some slight hills and... More

This is a great day trip from Singapore. It is a short boat ride away from the east end of Singapore. The island is fun to explore, though there were no beaches or swimming when we were there. The food hawker center near the boat dock (on the "mainland") is a good one with several very popular food stalls.

Loved our visit to the Island. Great to get the "bum boat" out to the island and sit in a cafe overlooking the waters - very relaxing. Took a mini bus up to the board walk at the end of the island, which worked v well although would try the bikes next time. Really recommended if you're in Singapore for... More

Bikes are dirt cheap, for as low as $2. But don't go for the $2 bikes unless you plan to have an uncomfortable ride. Get decent mountain bikes at $8~$10 and it takes you places like the mountain bike trails etc. High end ones can go up to $16. (Fees are one off and bike is yours for the whole... More

Looking for some relief from the urban crush of Singapore? Well look no farther as the city-state does have some 'natural state' left. Pulau ubin is a tiny island between Malaysia and the island of Singapore proper and is reached by getting yourself to Changi Ferry Terminal and thence waiting until enough passengers have rocked up to warrant a ferry...
