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.

Okay, it's a small island, but it's a national park. You might camp there, but there are no other sleeping accommodations. It's big enough that it would be challenging to hike entirely around in a day, but bicycle rentals are available. It's quite muddy when it rains, which is fairly often, but the roads are good. People do live there,... More

Going to Pulau Ubin from the jetty is a 10 min trip across the sea. The price is sin$ 3 per way. Getting to the island you are met by a lot of stalls from where you can rent bikes. Depending on you and your feet you can walk or bike the island. There are many beautiful places and everything... More

We took the bumboat across to Pulau Ubin for a very short walk around. Quite interesting walk through rainforest and wetlands. You can hire bikes but we chose not to. We saw two hornbills on our walk.

We had a great day out cycling around Pulau Ubin. Chek Jawa is definitely worth seeing. Saw troop of monkeys and plenty of birds including a hornbill. Very reasonable price to get there - only $6 return and $ 8 to hire a bike for the day Highly recommend

This little island is a short "bum boat" ride from the Kranji Village Marina. Cost is about five dollars each over and back. You can hire a bicycle from a number of very helpful providers in the little village near where the "bum boats" dock or if you like you can hire a taxi with one of the friendly drivers... More

Loved getting to Changi Village by bus and then taking the bum boat across to the island. A glimpse into how busy it must be in summer holiday time is indicated by the number of bikes waiting to be hired. Fortunately, in February, we visitors were a minority. We chose not to hire bikes and that was a good decision... More

Wish we had got there earlier and rented a bike. We didn't leave enough time to see the place properly. Ferry costs $3 each person each way and takes about 10 minutes. Some places to eat there.

We went over to Palau Ubin island from Changi Village in early Feb 2017 - a 15-minute $3 boat trip. You can hire bikes on the island; instead we took a van to the wetlands ($12 for two) - heaps of birds, excellent views, and birding tower. Well worth saving your energy for exploring the boardwalks. The wetlands should be... More

If you want to experience what Singapore was like 30 or more years ago, you have to visit Pulau Ubin. The ferry is S$3 per person one way from Changi Ferry Terminal just behind Changi Village and the bus terminal. There are plenty of parking plots too. We reached the island around 10:30 in the morning, jumped on the local... More
