So we dropped by Ubin the other day and I haven’t been there for the longest time and I actually missed cycling there. Changi Point Ferry Terminal (which is the place you’d go to hop on a bumboat to Ubin) looked much nicer compared to how it was years ago. For those who didn’t know, it’s $2.50 per trip and the bumboat will only depart once there’s like 12 passengers.
The first thing we did when we set foot in Ubin was to get a map from the NParks kiosk just off the jetty. Unfortunately the stopped issuing the maps and so as a heads up, please print and bring along the map if you feel the need to have one. (:
As you walk away from the jetty, you’ll notice a long array of bicycle shops on the left side. Do take your time to choose one. We got a slight discount on the rental. We paid $8 per bike for whole day use.
For the first time, we cycled up to Cek Jawa. I’ve been wanting to go there for the longest time but never got to do it and we finally did! 🙂 It was a long and tiring ride up. The terrains wasn’t that easy and the BF ended up pushing my bike up the slope for me most of the time. Heh.
We parked our bike along with the other bikes as no bicycles are allowed in Cek Jawa. To play safe, I’d recommend you to request for a bicycle lock from the rental shop if you were to head here. We didn’t and were lucky enough to see our bicycles still there afterwards.
Singapore started raining (as seen in the first picture) and moments later Ubin started raining too! We were lucky to be able to find shelter. The rain didn’t last long and before we know it, we started walking again.
Cek Jawa was okay. No ‘WOW’ factor probably because it was high tide. I’m not sure.
We cycled to Nordin Beach where we laid our mat and lighted our solid fuel.
Cooked maggie and rested for a while before cycling back to the jetty and hopped on the bumboat back to homeland. 🙂
