What you can expect

Take a half day trip to an island off the eastern coast of Singapore, Pulau Ubin. On this private tour you will get to explore the island on foot or by bike, enjoy pleasant hiking through the forest and see how people used to live in the 60s surrounded by the abundance of tropical nature. If you are up to it we can explore all the way to stunning Chek Jawa marine mangrove swamp and enjoy walking along coastal boardwalk. The island is indeed great for nature lovers.

Your half day experience will start at convenient meeting point i.e. MRT station, from which we will continue the journey by public bus and take a scenic route via Changi Museum to Changi Village to board bumboat at Changi Point. For up to 4 guests pick-up is also possible from meeting point at no additional cost. The museum is optional and can be done after the Pulau Ubin trip. Entry to museum is free.

We can explore by foot, on bike or by hiring taxi van (additional charges applies for bike or van rental). Bike rental cost about $5 to $8 for the whole day. Van taxi cost $15 each way to/ from Check Jawa. We will see the local tropical nature, mangrove swamps, fruit orchards, some wildlife (monkeys, wildboars, water monitor), the village and how people used to live a few decades ago and of course you can try the local dishes or snacks such as nasi lemak or curry puffs at equally rustic Changi Village on the way back or before we embark on our journey to Pulau Ubin!

Useful things to bring along is a bottle of water, sun block and perhaps insect repellent.
