Who would have thought there is such place like this in Singapore? Last August, I wanted to visit this place but I couldn’t get anybody to go with me. The people I know have been here already so I wanted to go with someone who hasn’t seen the place. Finally, I found one. I met this filipina girl from the hostel here in SG. She looked for a job and got one so she’s now a pass holder!
We met at Tanah Merah MRT station at 8AM. We took exit B to bus stop and took bus number 2. The Changi Point Ferry Terminal is the last stop so you won’t get lost.
We immediately went to the Changi Village Hawker Center for breakfast. We then paid SGD 2.50 for the jetty to Pulau Ubin.
It took about 10 minutes and we’re there!
We checked out bicycles to rent. We tried those between SGD 5 and SGD 8 but they weren’t running smoothly until we tried one of their new ones for SGD 10 which was great. We negotiated it to SGD 8 but only for 4 hours use. We agreed to it since we weren’t planning to stay all day anyway.
As we cycle our way to Chek Jawa Wetlands, we saw monkeys, dogs, and nice little houses.
There was a lot of uphill which was hard and downhill which was fun.
We passed by a seven-story viewing tower called Jejawi Tower and the view was breathtaking.
We then walked our way to the boardwalk which was nice as well.
Then another challenging ride to find our way back. It was indeed a fun adventure.
Below are my Pulau Ubin expenses excluding MRT and bus fares all in Singapore Dollars.
$5 jetty (roundtrip)
$8 bicycle rental
$3.5 laksa (noodles)
$1.80 ice kachang and ice water
Pulau Ubin is indeed a must see in Singapore.
I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for "being yourself". I love new situations and to meet new people.
