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.

The place is not far from the city. Only 5 min boat ride. The place is not touched by modernization. Pure nature. However, SG national park authority started placing island maps in all crossing or division point (Its in progress). Do carry your water bottle, a cap and a sunglass will be a good addition to your gear. I think... More

Start your day early, bumboats crossing to Pulau Ubin departs from the eastern tip of Singapore. Pulau Ubin is big enough to make walking time consuming and if you don't intend to see much, rent a bike at the jetty. You will see more wildlife early in the morning. Plenty of birds and yes, hornbills if you are lucky (http://www.wildsingapore.com/wildfacts/vertebrates/birds/albirostris.htm)... More

For adventurous bunch you can really spend a day or two for simple camping and fishing gateway. Lots of daily bicycle rentals and for the fit, theres so many trails to choose from. Don't bother wearing flip flops or heels with branded garment. Bring a backpack with essentials like water bottle, insect repellent, snacks or lunchbox if you get hungry... More

Fabulous way to spend a day out of the City. You need to take the MRT to Tanah Merah, then the #2 bus to the ferry terminal. The bum boats cost $2.50 each way and won't leave unless 12 people are on board. They will jostle you around to get the right numbers, too! Once there, you can take your... More

We had such a fun day at Pulau Ubin and it was one of the highlights of our trip. Yes, it does take a while to get out there by the MRT to Tanah Merah, then bus #2 and the ferry (which was a highlight in itself) but it was all part of the fun, seeing a side of Singapore... More

Catch MRT then grab a taxi to the Changi terminal, make sure you go to the right one as I was sent in circles to find it. Catch a boat over to the island, cost $2.50. Boat will only leave once there are 12 people to go. On the island, hire a bike if your choice for $10 for as... More

Two friends and I visited Pulau Ubin on a day off during a work trip. We arrived at about half past ten, and hired cycles from the various vendors close to the jetty. These are very good value, and don't demand a deposit, so you can hire a bike for the day from upwards of $5. We cycled around, looking... More
