Park, Shop, Shrine
Sometimes referred to as ‘bike island’ due to its nearly nonexistent vehicle traffic, Pulau Ubin is a spectacular place to go cycling and a refreshing escape from the city. Grab the ferry from Changi Point Ferry Terminal and head left into the ‘town’ to rent a bike. From there, start exploring the island. For avid mountain bikers, continue past the town and follow the directions to the German Girl Shrine to get into the mountain bike park. For nature lovers, after you’ve picked up your rental, turn back towards the pier and follow the signs to the Chek Jawa Wetlands. Note that there are only a handful of shops on the island so it’s best to stock up on water while you’re renting your bike.
