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

Great day out.Very easy to get to. We took a taxi from Chinatown to Changi Cove Ferry Terminal only cost $20. Then got a bumboat over to Ubin Island for $2.50.The trip over took between 10 and 15 minutes (depends on whoever is steering the boat). Once on the island there are plenty of places to hire bikes from ranging... More

Great day trip from Changi Point by bumboat (SGD 2.50 per person each way), rent some bicycles and wander around the cycle tracks. Nice food at the restaurants by the public wharf

It's pretty hard to get totally away from city life around Singapore, and even on Ubin you can see the planes coming into Changi. However when cycling on the various paths on the interior, be they sealed, gravel or forest, you do feel a million miles away. Peering onto the mud flats for pincer crabs and "crawling" fish that look... More

Everytime somebody asks me about the beautiful places to visit in Singapore, I never fail to mention Pulau Ubin! I did a solo trip and biked around the island, met travelers, was run after by a monkey, almost met an accident when a monitor lizard crossed the street and I freaked out. The way from SG mainland to PU doesn't... More

Every time we holiday in Singapore we have a day trip to Pulau Ubin and hire a bike (about $4) for a few hours and take a ride around the island and have a lovely meal in a restaurant overlooking the water. Between the two of us we had mango chicken, sweet and sour pork , fried noodles and two... More

Wife went shopping, saw this on the TV programme so thought it was a good idea. Get a taxi out there, about $18 (from Marina Bay) so don't know why you would bother with MRT/bus. When you get back walk a few paces away from the ferry terminal and hail a taxi. Wear old clothes because the bum boats are... More

Full sun. Nice Bum boat ride brings you to a dog infested island where you hire ATBs for dirt trail bicycle rides. You go up and down across paved roads, dirt trails, wooden planked bridges, build up a nice little sweat, endure some bloody mosquitoes and some other equatorial insects and generally do a lot of good for your legs...

Saw this beautiful island on a Singapore special and so glad we made the trip out. Caught the MRT and a bus to changi village. A cheap bum boat out to island and you feel like you have entered another time. Little fishing village with a stack of bikes to choose from. Didn't go for the cheapest bike paid $8... More

Take one of the small boats from Changi Ferry Terminal with your bike and escape the giant metropolis of Singapore for some serious cycling around Pulau Ubin. Or simply rent a bike once you arrive. Really feels like you're in a different country: well worth the effort.
