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.

With the boat ride $2,50 each way and renting bikes for $20 this was quite a cheap day out. Unfortunately, the food on the island is limited with a few restaurants and a shop, so it may be worth bringing snacks. Some parts of the cycle route are uphill and rocky so may not be suitable to all, many had... More

Just at a stone throw distance from Singapore you will this wonderful Island. Reach the Island by Ferry from Changi Village. Hire a Bicycle in local shops and just explore :)

Getting here is half the adventure. Great way to see Singapore - taxi is obviously easier but getting here by public transport is easy too just takes longer and you see more of the day to day Singapore. Old style boat taxi's to the island which run very frequently. Bring plenty of sunblock and an adventurous attitude. Hire an old... More

This was such a pleasant surprise. I could not decide if I wanted to go to the zoo or here... but on a whim decided for Pulau Ubin .... and i'm so thankful I did. Its not only an adventure getting to the north east of the island, but then you need to get a "bumboat" to the island. When... More

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
