Singapore Bike Adventure around Pulau Ubin

Biking Around Pulau Ubin

Escape Singapore and embark on an enjoyable bike tour around the beautiful rural island of Pulau Ubin on this guided bike adventure. From Singapore, make your own way to Pulau Ubin on a short and inexpensive (approx. USD $2) bumboat ride. Enjoy the sights of Singapore and of Pulau Ubin from the water on this 10-minute ride. Meet your guide at the National Parks Information Kiosk, located directly across the ferry terminal. Follow your guide into the bike rental shop, where you’ll choose your bike, strap on your safety gear, and receive a detailed orientation. Then, embark on your 4-hour biking adventure!

Pulau Ubin, meaning ‘Granite Island,’ is a small rural island that will give you a tranquil escape from Singapore’s busy city streets. Travel back to the 1960s as you visit the island’s kampungs, Singapore’s last remaining villages. Enjoy the refreshingly cool breeze as you bike on a combination of tarmac roads and dirt tracks.Your certified guide will lead you on any one of the many cycling routes available. These routes tend to change daily, though each will surely give you a glimpse of the island’s natural wildlife and local village life.

One route may take you to the western part of the island, where you will ride to the Pekan Quarry. Visit the German Girl Shrine and learn about the ‘Mystery Girl of Ubin’ while enjoying magnificent views of the Western Straits of Johor. Another riding route may take you to the eastern part, where you will make stops at places like the fruit plantations of Jalan Ubin and Chek Jawa with its virtually unspoiled sandy beaches and coastal forests, all brimming with native wildlife.

Pulau Ubin has plenty of easy and moderate riding routes for both beginners and experts to enjoy. Whichever route your guide chooses for the day, there will be planned stops to give you an opportunity to take photos and have your guide share some local history.

This tour was amazing!

This was an excellent experience we had. Our guide, Fadil was fantastic, very knowledgable as well as entertaining. A trip around the island was so worthwhile as it gave an insight into the original way of life in Singapore (in Kampong villages). This is definitely a must do.

Despite very hot and humid conditions, the tracks were mostly in shade so it was quite pleasant. Our tour guide was a local so had estensive knowledge of the island history, flora and fauna and he was easy to communicate with. He made sure we travelled on paths and at speeds that suited our age and fitness levels so we felt safe at all times. The island is quite beautiful and the actual riding time was about two hours, quite enough in thta heat. We would defintiely recommend it to others.

Had a great time. The guide was very considerate of our ages (72 and 71)' but we managed the ride with some walking.

Very nice experience! The guide was knowledgeable and well prepared. He is a native from the island and has an interesting story about everything you will pass by. The island is worth seeing especially when you have a certain ideas of a "modern" Singapore. What you will see here will surprise you.

This was a very worthwhile outing. Palau Ubin is a jungle park, a short ferry ride from Urban Singapore. The guide was local and knew where to find wildllife and had the backstory on what was happening on the island. I think both the bike outings and paddle outings would be a veyr good way to spend a day in Singapore.

I did this tour 3 Mar 13 (AUD46.93). I loved it! This was my 4th trip to Sgp and I was determined NOT to go anywhere near Orchard Rd. I wanted to see the real Sgp with some peace, quiet and tranquility-away from crazy crowds. I took a taxi from V Hotel (MRT Lavender) to Changi Ferry terminal. 20 mins, approx SGD20. (Bus #2 from Victoria Rd). I boarded the bumboat for SGD2.50 each way. The little wooden boats don't go to timetable, they just go when they have 12 passengers (full boat). It was a lovely 15 min ride over to Pulau Ubin (Ubin Island). I met my tour guide, Zhiguang right on time at 9.15am. I was amazed I was the only rider, so I had a personal tour guide for my money. Bonus! We went and got our mountain bikes and took off. What a beautiful National Park. Very few residents - those there are still living in traditional style houses.

I absolutely loved peddling around the sealed roads with Zhiguang. He is studying Sports Science at College and we had some great chats about fitness and Singapore in general. He has been coming to Ubin since 2007 so he knows the island really well. I loved peddling on the "blue trail" the easy off road circuit - a bit of gravel, mud and grass, a few lumps and bumps but nothing crazy for a beginner like me. There is also "black diamond" and "double black diamond" trail for the serious riders - but you wont be doing them on this tour (ha ha). I loved riding around and seeing the "Butterfly Hill" (counted 7 varieties of butterfly in just a few minutes), the "Secret Spice Garden", the waterlilly pond, the Shrine to German Girl, the old granite quarry (now a reservoir filled with water forming a beautiful lake) and the amazing views over to Malaysia - I didn't realise it was so close you could swim across. I had a blast! I was so sorry it was over at 1.30pm. I invited Zhiguang to some lunch at one of the local restaurants. I wanted to thank him for the best tour - I enjoyed it HEAPS more than shopping on Orchard Rd!
