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.

Wow....what a hidden gem this little Island is. We left (red line) Somerset MRT, got off at City Hall and took (green line) to Tenah Merah. Smooth trip and part of it above ground so the view of the suburbs was terrific. From Tenah Merah we caught the Number 2 bus to Changi Village and a very short walk to... More

Really did not expect to find a spot like this in Singapore but it was a welcome addition to the trip A nice half day that was capped off by a great lunch at the Changi sailing club... Bike riding, nice walks, mangroves, beachside boardwalks

If you are in a hurry , you can pay for the 12 seats and take the ferry immediately. After reaching the island there are bicycles for... More

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
