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

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.

It's a totally diferrent place, like deep rural area. After around 15' on the pump boat, you will arrive at the island. Near the jetty in Pulau Ubin, it's quite busy, there are many bike rental offers, from ~$8 per day with different quality and types. There is also taxi service, but it's not a good option there. Renting a... More

A place for biking experience in singapore. Rent a bike for as low as S$8.00 until 6pm. To go there: Ride a pump boat from Changi Ferry Terminal for S$2.50.

My 12yo son and i decided to check out the island for a change from the hustle of the city so we took a taxi (only $sgd15 from novena) to the changi jetty then paid $2.50 each for the trip across to the island on one of the bumboats. Once on the island you can either walk or ride around... More
