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.

I found that from Toa Payoh MRT you can catch the bus all the way to Changhi village. It takes longer than a taxi or MRT but you get to see a lot more of the suburbs. We had lunch in the Changhi village hawker centre and then caught a bumboat over to the island. We hired acceptable mountain bikes... More

Grab a bike to ride around for $8-15 depending on the quality of the bike from one of the many hire stores as you enter the island. There isn't a heap to see but you will come across some wildlife like Monkeys, Wild Pigs, Birds and Lizards. It's a good experience. Make sure you grab some food to carry with... More

I would say lovely little island (which is what I thought I was entering) however it is actually quite big. We caught a bumboat over and once arrived we had a wide selection of bike rental shops to choose from, we went for number 31 as that's what was recommended by a guide book. The trails were well signposted and... More

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 Point Ferry Terminal as stated in MRT station to go to the corresponding bus station and take bus no.2 until the very last station. Alight from bus and walk... More

Pulau Ubin is a rustic island which is 15 minutes by bum boat from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. The boats cost $2.50 each way and $2.00 if a bicycle is brought on board the boat. There are lots of bicycle rental shops at the Pulau Ubin jetty and getting to rent one shouldn't be a problem. Each bicycle cost an... More

Bukit Puaka, at 75m, overlooks the Ubin Granite Quarry. A short hike (about 15 min) to the top on an easy course. It's a tranquil surroundings and not as packed with visitors. Some artists were spotted drawing at the top.

Pulau Ubin offers visitors a different perspective of Singapore, it being a rustic and relatively undeveloped island from its mainland counterpart. If you're a nature lover, you'll be pleasantly surprised to note that Ubin is rich in wildlife. In my trips there, I have been fortunate to have been able to spot wild boars, oriental pied-hornbills, monitor lizards, mudskippers, stingrays,... More

We took the "bumboat' from Changi village which is also easy to each. The island has exceptionally good signposting and is easy to get around even on foot. We definitely intend to go back again and this time to hire bikes which are very reasonable to explore further. For those who do walk or cycle there are rain shelters just... More
