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 am a local. This is the place I would recommend people to visit. The way to visit this island will be to rent a bicycle to cycle the island. It is just a really small island and cannot be compared to national parks on other countries but it is the only last real bit of nature left if Singapore.... More

A town that has time on a standstill. A rustic day trip adventure destination. Accommodation is rather sparse here. Perfect getaway from the hectic lifestyle of the mainland. Get geared up for a hike or cycling trip.. Have a feel of how Singapore was in 60-70s.

Even arriving here is fun, by the local boats. As soon as you arrive you can hire bikes and go off exploring the island. You get to see a fair bit of wildlife too.

I'm told that this represents rural Singapore from about 40 years ago. Just how the old people remember it. Lots of nature to see. A boa deals through mangroves, a hill covered in huge butterflies, amazing trees. I nearly didn't hire a bike but was glad I did. I saw virtually the whole island in 4 hours but wouldn't have...

We took a bumboat from Changi Point Ferry Terminal to the Island for about 10 minutes.. We've eat first then rent a bike. The rental price for bicycles range anywhere from S$2.00 to S$20.00 (for the entire day) depending on the condition of the bike, number of gears etc. I've got the couple-bike (2 seated, 2-pedals) because my wife don't...

A popular cycling, fishing, birdwatching, walking destination among locals. Relatively unspoilt, though the jetty area is abundant with bike rental shops and food outlets. Visit Chek Jawa while here - a conserved mangrove area brimming with life. Best done with a knowledgeable guide. Also visit the disused quarry turned tranquil lake. Settlers are warm and friendly, are eager to exchange... More

We head down to take a bumboat from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. You have to wait for the bumboat driver to make head count of 12 person before ushering you to his boat. The ferry trip about 10 minutes. You could rent a bicycles (bicycle with gears recommended) or walk to explore the island. First we cycle trough Sensory trial... More

If you are an adventurous traveler who wants to see Singapore in a different light, then Pulau Ubin is a great place for you to start. Rent a bike (ranges from SGD 6-40) to explore the whole island (can take you around 6 hours or more including breaks). Visit Chek Jawa where you can see House #1 which has the... More

It's just a 15 min bum boat ride away from the Changi Ferry Terminal but you feel you've travelled back in time a few decades! This is Singapore in the 60's. The ride is easy - No reservations needed. Just go there and wait. Once there is a group of 12, the bum boat will take off. Dress cool and... More
