Overview
More
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.

In Palau Ubin, you will discover Singapore in a very different “time zone”... The good old “ kampung days” of yesteryear. The rustic charms of the good old days...where everything seems to move at a much slower pace. Walk slowly and enjoy the flora and...More

After many trips to Singapore, I finally made it Pulau Ubin. We did not rent bikes, opting to "hike" or rather walk on the roadways to Chek Jawa and Butterfly Hill and paths of the Sensory Trail, etc. We were able to see much wildlife...More

The paths were gravel and unmade, not smooth tarmac, so I'm not sure how easy it would be to skate on

No. You can get the jump boat on first-cum-first serve basis. The one way trip costs only SGD 3.
