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.

If you need a day of quiet and peace, go down to Pulau Ubin and roam around in the greenery there. But if you haven't carried enough food supplies then you will to get stuff which you may not prefer. I had to run back to mainland to replenish my stomach. I had a great time otherwise on the island.... More

My friend and I enjoyed a casual boat ride just across to reach Pulau Ubin. From July the boat ride will cost S$3. Pulau Ubin has become a conserved island with greenery of plants, trees and shrubs with serenity all around. If you are going, have to bring mosquito repellant, sunblock and bottled water for your hike or ride. Chek... More

If you are looking for a unique outdoor experience while visiting Singapore, it is hard to beat Pulau Ubin. The island was recommended to us by a friend who lived in Singapore for several years. This was one of the highlights of our trip. The island has a history in the area (former granite quarry) and this has resulted in... More

I love this little island for short trip from Singapore island. I explore this island with my friends. We rented a bike when we get on this island, and we enjoyed around the beautiful island. BTW, The fare for the boat is $2.5 one way.

This island is just a short boat ride away. You can get to this island with the many boats that leave from Changi Point Terminal. On the island, you can walk, rent a bike or hop into one of the few taxis to get you around. Here you still can find residents who have lived on the island all the... More

This is a must see place in Singapore, especially for those who wish to see how Singapore looks like before the great transformation in modern period. The environment is excellent. It would be even better if there's a small showroom/ mini-museum that introduce the island's previous history to visitors.

The streets here totally resembles the rural areas in Malaysia, never realize I'm in Singapore until I saw the address on the signboards of the shops..it is indeed Singapore! It is not that hard to go to Pulau Ubin, just a bit far if you are not staying at East Singapore. From Tanah Merah MRT, follow the instruction to Changi... More

this was a highlight for me. Took a train then a bus to the port, got a bum boat (yes..really) to the island. Crossing a bit rough and smelly but great fun. The bike hire is manic with people trying to get your business everywhere. Roads are nice with a few hills, nothing too bad but I'm a cyclist so... More

Try to keep a full day for the visit. Its worth it. Reach early as there is a lot to see and explore here , especially if you are a nature lover. Getting to the island is easy, but takes about 2 hours, if you are travelling from the city center. Take the MTR to Tanah Merah station [East-West /... More
