Pulau Ubin

Dear Members and Friends,

How about leaving the city (malls, noise, traffic and buildings) for discovering amazing landscapes (mangroves, jungleā€¦) and encountering animals as squirrels, monkeys and wild boars. Then letā€™s go for a bike tour with kids in Pulau Ubin, an island in the North-East of Singapore, preserved by the singaporian government.

Please take note that this will not be an officially guided tour !

Pulau Ubin 2

Pulau Ubin 3Pulau Ubin 4

Date : Saturday, 24th September 2016

Time : 10.30 am ā€“ approx. 17.00 pm

LunchĀ : food courts on the island (to be paid upon consumption).

Fees : $ 5 for members (adults only), $ 8 for non-members (adults only) (can be paid cash)

Cost of the bumboatĀ : $ 3 per person. If you take your own bicycle, it is going to be a little more expensive.

It takes 10-15 minutes bumboat to get from Changi Point Ferry Terminal to Pulau Ubin. The bumboat will leave once 12 people are on board. No fixed departure timing, but do not worry it rarely takes long the boat to be leaving the dock.

Bike rentingĀ : approx.$ 10 for all day. Once arrived on the island, there are many bike rental shops. The amount depends on the kind of bicycle you choose. There is the possibility to hire bicycles with a baby seat on the back. For kids who already ride bicycle, it is better to take their own bicycle.

Meeting point : Changi Point Ferry Terminal.

How to get there : MRT station Tanah MerahĀ (East-West Line, green line) then the bus nĀ°2 to go to Changi Village or MRT station Tampines (East-West Line) then bus nĀ° 29 to Changi Village (you can choose one of the two options mentioned but the bus nĀ° 2 comes more frequently).

Once arrived at Changi Village, walk to ā€œChangi Point Ferry Terminalā€.

The easiest way to get there is by taxi. If you are interested in it, let me know and I will arrange a meeting point in order to share taxis to make the trip less expensive.

What to bring :Ā Umbrella, sunscreen, mosquito spray, water, a hat and bicycle helmet for kids. I recommand to wear snickers.

Registration : Please register here.Ā 

Registration deadline :Ā Monday, 19th September 2016.

I look forward to seeing you soon.
