What travellers are saying
- A nice outing and interesting cycling trip from Jetty to Chek java. Boardwalk provides many sights and animals for kids to converse on, the tower provides a good view of the island from the topWritten 18 December 2021This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- One of the highlights of my trip to Singapore is visiting Pulao Ubin. The bike ride to explore this place was such a relaxing time for me. Do take a boat ride which is only a few minutes. Then rent a bike from one of the locals. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars to view different birds. Give way to the monkeys and wild pigs. Don’t forget to bring enough water. Admire the different trees and plants along the trail. After the bike ride, order food from one of the small restaurants and just enjoy the view as you relax yourself!Written 13 August 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Even though the name suggests it is for serious cyclists, leisure cyclists can make use of the earth track located at the southern part of the bike park, to access the Ketam Quarry and other scenic spots along the coastline.
The feel of the bike park is rustic, simple and tranquil. The crowd at this part of the island is definitely smaller than the crowd at the main village and Chek Jawa.
Suggest to visit on a clear day as there are few or no shelters or resting places within the area. It takes about 15- 20 minutes to reach the bike park from the main village.Written 30 November 2019This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The Wei Tuo Fa Gong temple is in the vicinity of Bukit Puaka and approximately 2km from the Pulau Ubin jetty. It houses shrines dedicated to several Buddhas (it appears to be a Tibetan school of Buddhism) and also Hindu deities. A chief character here is the Kshitigarbha Boddhisatva, known for his vow to not achieve enlightenment until all living beings are rescued from hell. The temple is situated on a small hill and on the other side, is a small pond with terrapins and fish. This place has a tranquil and rustic appeal.Written 2 March 2020
- In my opinion, this is certainly a spot that deserves a visit. It is better to take a bike to visit this spot as it is not in the immediate vicinity of the Pulau Ubin jetty. The story goes that before WW1 broke out, a German family was living here and when the hostilities started, the British military rounded up the Germans at this plantation. The teenager daughter fled into the woods and a few days later, her body was discovered. Today there is a simple shrine dedicated to her, with some candles at the altar and some joss sticks. No entry fee is required. It is set in tranquil settings and one can spend some time here, pondering the past of this place and this island.Written 2 March 2020
- Having lived in Singapore for a while we have done most things there are to do around here and this still ranks my number one activity of all time in the country!
Really amazing experience kayaking in the mangroves with lovely and informative young guides. I was surprised at how “remote” we could go and feel like the only people for miles around, a welcome break from the city. Enjoyed swimming in the mangroves and cooling off, word of warning it gets very, very hot.
Disappointed we didn’t see a dugong although they’re exceptional rare so unsurprising. Will have to go again and try and see them!Written 18 February 2020
- We just had the most extraordinary bike tour with our guide 'Fizzy'. First of all a visit to Pulau Ubin is such a treat. We found it to be a very welcome change from the fast paced and concrete life on Singapore. Pulau Ubin seems like it is frozen in time. I visited the island 17 years ago- it was like nothing changed (which is a really good thing). We met Fizzy and we're immediately struck by his knowledge, warmth, and good sense of humor. The bikes were in excellent shape and the ride somewhat strenuous, but by no means challenging. We saw a wild boar, several monitor lizards and a VERY large spider. Fizzy caught an ant and threw it into the spider's web. Pretty cool to see the spider wrap its prey up! We will all (myself and my 2 teenagers- 15 and 13) will remember this trip forever.
Many many thanks to Asian Tours and especially Fizzy.
P.S. I forgot to mention that among Fizzy's many talents- he is a partially talented singer.Written 13 March 2017
