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.

If you are looking for a good place to trek or to bike, then Pulau Ubin is the best place! There are well-marked roads and trails to explore in Ubin. Stop by the NParks Information Kiosk near Ubin jetty for a free map. How to get there: 1. From Lavender MRT station, alight at Tanah Merah. 2. From Tanah Merah,... More

Good getaway for Singaporeans living in mainland. It is free to enter this island. Plenty of green to walk around, fresh air. We were lucky, it rained so heavily last night. So this morning was soo cooling. All roads were very shady, plenty of trees and provides shades. We explored the eastern side, Chek Jawa Board Walk area. We took... More

In a city like Singapore where you only see only concrete structure everywhere, this is an escape from that. This is an island which is connected using ferry. We took a ferry from Changi beach and reached here on a Sunday Morning. You can hire a cycle and roam around the island as you wish. There are some petty shops... More

This is one place no tourist thinks about going to when planning to Singapore. Who would ever think that there would be "jungle-life" beyind the concrete-Jungle? What's more amazing is what's locally known as the "Barbie Temple" on the west side of the island. Rent a Bike for maximum convenience. Then hop on and off anywhere you wish to do... More

We decided to do Singapore a bit differently this time...can't be bothered shopping from dawn to dusk so we investigated a more healthy adventure visit. Like to keep fit. The short story is we purchased a 3 day public transport ticket for $30 ($10 on return of ticket) and used it to go everywhere - train and bus. Buy it... More

I've been here for four consecutive weekends, it has me hooked. I'll try to answer a few questions I've been asked by others. Tip: bring bread and insect repellent. $3 on the bum boat from Changi point, $2 surcharge if you bring your own bike. Bikes are available in abundance on the island, from $8 and up, depending on the... More

Took a trip to Pulau Ubin on Sunday, for a weekend it wasn't too busy. We had lunch at the nearby hawkers centre which had an array of food to suit all needs, so if you're starting at lunch time don't worry about bringing lunch. Got to the ferry terminal and waited with other passengers, arrangement were simple - as... More

Little awkward to get to, needs the MTR and then a bus but easier if you take a taxi. The actual boat taxi across to the island has no timetable (there are signs that tell you that !) they wait until they have enough people and then take you across. Max number is 12 plus 2 crew. If you want... More

Yet another hot day, but don't let that stop you. Decent restaurant just off the jetty. Some electric fans for a little breeze...had a good meal there. Rode some bikes built for two...fun afternoon..saw a lake and a view of the bay. Rode on the bum boats to a fro. It's an effort to get there...the marina on the main... More
