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.

Wonderful ferry boat ride over to the island, $6 round trip. Renting a bike was $8-$12 for the day. Bike riding was such a great way to see the island and so safe as there are very few vehicles on the island. Wildlife included, lizard,...More
