An Urban Escape from Singapore with a Walk Around Pulau Ubin


The Map

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started and finished at the Changi Point Ferry Terminal (Google Map Directions). From the Changi Point Ferry Terminal, it is a short bumboat ride across to the Pulau Ubin Ferry Terminal (Google Map Directions). The bumboats operate from 6 am to 7 pm, but there are no scheduled departure times, so you just need to wait around until enough people turn up to fill a boat (I waited about 10 minutes).
  • Length: 8.9km (5.5mi) in about 3hr
  • Grade: Easy to Medium. The terrain is flat, and the paths are very well maintained. It isn't a long walk, so I would generally classify something like this as easy. However, the heat and humidity do make it tougher than it appears.
  • Date Walked: 6th of September 2019

The Story

It's a walk with plenty of greenery, silence, water views and a brilliant boardwalk over the Chek Jawa Wetlands.
