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.

Best way to explore P.U. is by renting a bike for around 10SDollar for one day. The island itself is not so big so you can visit almost every spot in under 4 hours. There is the Ketam Mountainbike park, but it is recommended to bring a better bike than thos you can hire on the island!

Good trail run today though it is on the mountain bike track! Pretty safe and listen to jungle when leaves / branches falling from tree top! 🌴 Most of the trail are well covered by tree canopy and make the temperature cool down but found it a bit scary! Luckily no wild boar or monkey behind me😬 Finishing and calm... More

Caught a bum boat out from Changi 15 minutes to the island. We walked around for a couple of hours, visited the beach and old quarry. Saw monkeys, birds and wild pigs. Bike hire is available to venture further.

Just a ten minute ride on a small boat and you arrive at the little island of Pulau Ubin. Such a quiet tranquil place, we hired bikes & headed off to explore. There are no cars on the island so it's safe to cycle without the worry of vehicles coming at you from any direction, There is a viewing platform... More

This was the highlight of our visit to Singapore. It was so worth the effort of getting here, and the journey by MRT, bus and bum boat was great fun. The island was peaceful and the people were so friendly. We had intended to hire bikes and cycle to the boardwalk... but it was just too hot for us, so... More

It was a pleasant surprise to see this place with lush green landscape so close to a modern city. The bumboat ride to this island is a highlight.( though only about 15minutes) One can get cycles on hire and move around the various locations on the island. There are some locations eat marked for overnight camping as well. Certainly a... More

Great place to visit if you are in Singapore for an extended stay. It's a step back in time with some old houses scattered about and a very undeveloped natural scenes. There are great bike trails that go all over. Bike rentals are plentiful on the island a short walk from the pier. There are some good local eateries near... More

You need to catch a bumboat from Changi Ferry Point next to Changi Village Market.. It will cost you SGD 3 each way.. I would encourage all to go early and rent bicycles to move around the island, It should cost roughly about SGD8 to SGD15 for a whole day rental(till 6pm). Plenty of beautiful pictures of nature to be... More

This place is not one of the well publicised tourist attractions but so far all the overseas friends we have brought there have voted it as one of the highlights of their visit to Singapore! It reminds you of Spore in the sixties. Laid back, lots of greenery and nature. Rent a bicycle and ride round the island. Enjoy the... More
