How exactly do I get to Pulau Ubin?

I am thinking of visiting there at some stage this week, but I am at a loss as to how to get there.

Do I have to go as a group tour? Can I charter my own boat there and back with a sailor?

How long is advised for spending on Pulau Ubin, seeing as I only want to get some photos and videos, and a little walking. I don't want to be there all day.

And what is the state of mosquitoes, snakes etc?

How to get there: (Right hand side of the Page)


===> All the way down under "Related Event" This is for Chek Jawa Guided Tour which U can book, according to availability........




There are Bicycle for Rent, which U can try...... There are sure Mosquitoes in a Kampong Village Like this But if U have Sunblock with some deet Or Oil to prevent Mozzie, it will be fine. Snake? Did Not see any along the main biking path.

Go early, U can get there by 9.30am, & back to Mainland by 12 or 1pm for Lunch at the Nearby Changi Village for Lunch :D

You can get a ride on a bum boat from Changi Poin Ferry Terminal for $2 or have the boat to yourself for $20 each way. There are plenty of boats at at both points, they go when there are 10 passengers waiting or straight away if you cough up the additional $ to hire one for your exclusive use. I don't think there are any tour groups.

Around 3-4 hours if your cycling ( lots of cycle hire places) and having a meal.

The mosquitos and snakes are pretty healthy, as are the spiders.
