Pulau Ubin is an island northeast of mainland Singapore.

Cycle trails and footpaths criss-cross the hills, going past disused granite quarries and traditional kampongs (villages).

Kingfishers and bulbul birds inhabit the tidal flats and mangroves of the Chek Jawa Wetlands.

The Jejawi observation tower and a looped boardwalk offer views of this area.

Fo Shan Ting Da Bo Gong Temple houses statues of local deities.

Get adventurous at Pulau Ubin, an island offering adventurous hiking and biking trails.

You can pay a visit to the Chek Jawa Wetlands and explore the beautiful forests, beaches and a mangrove swamp.

You’ll also find a fruit orchard on the way to the wetlands and is worth a visit.

Take a $6 trip on a bumboat to get to this island sanctuary from Changi Port Ferry Terminal. One of Singapore’s last kampongs, Pulau Ubin will give you a glimpse of how life was in the city in the garden back in the 1960s. The 10.2 square kilometer island is also home to House No. 1 a new visitor center where you can explore the building and enjoy the sea view.

Take a trek along the coastal boardwalk, and hike up to Jejawi Tower. It’s easiest to explore the island on bike, so luckily there are numerous bicycle vendors to bargain with for a cheap deal.
