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 was a great tour that made us work hard in the Singapore heat. It was well paced and my quite fit 70 year old mother kept up with the cycling just fine. We saw wild pigs and some monkeys. Pack plenty of water, it's always hot and humid!

We wanted to see what it must have been like before Singapore was developed-- and this bike tour was a great way to see it. J.C. was our guide and he was polite, friendly, informative and enthusiastic. He showed us native plants, birds and we even caught a glimpse of a wild boar. We would recommend this tour heartily.

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.

Chinese lunch with a great view - it was fun sitting in this outdoor place with dozens of other riders - all the bikes lined up down the street. (lunch not included in tour price)

That's me, kitted out.

So much fun for a stressed out corporate type ... recommend to everyone. You feel totally relaxed when you get back to crazy Singapore city centre.
