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.

For $3 each way on a bum boat from Changing Ferry Terminal (no 2 bus to here), you can get to Pulau Ubin Island. The journey takes about 10 mins and there are a small number of eateries and shop facilities when you arrive. There are also public toilets. You can hire bikes from numerous places and I wish we...

Singapore has been on my travel list for a long time but somehow I always chose the more alluring Europe or Australia over it. So when finally I got a chance to explore it I was happy but wasn’t going gaga over the impending experience. I had heard a lot, seen a lot and read a lot about Singapore and... More

Singapore is very modern, very new, and can be very busy. So it's great that Pulau Ubin is so close and so easy to get to. Not a ton of planning is required, just catch a bumboat from the Changi Point ferry and when you arrive you'll stumble into an entire array of bicycle vendors offering bikes for rent. A... More

We took a nice short boat ride out here and rented bikes, all of which had seen better days but could still get you around for a few hours. Very hot and humid but what else do you get in July? Make sure you bring a lot of water or at least change for the vending machines scattered about the... More

Very nice and peacefull place. A fews signs are shown to help with direction. Very easy to get there via MRT and bus but quite a long ride if you're located south of the Island (about 1.5 hours) Get the ferry(6$ round trip). Once on the Island, you can rent a bike fore about 10$ wich I reccomend if you... More

Need a break away from the bustling Singapore? Pulau Ubin is a great destination for day out with friends or even family with young like me. Elderly who wish to visit the island is fine as well as there were taxi available. Side note : Require to get up & down from the boat at the pier. Depart from Changi... More

Pulau Ubin is a small island that belongs to Singapore, which still preserve traces of the early Singapore before development. Take a boat ($3/passenger, $2 surcharge for bicycle/trip) from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. The boat will depart once they have 12 passengers. The ride takes about 10 - 15 minutes. Beside the Changi Point Ferry Terminal, there is Changi Village... More

It is great to walk among the trees and able to enjoy the coolness the only things will be the mosquito which is really furious in their attack.

A good place to experience to, you can do biking or jungle hiking with some of the friends or even alone. Remember climb up to the viewing tower and take a 360 degree panorama pic. :D
