  • Cycling-Track-In-Sentosa-Singapore

    Forget the frou-frou and tourist attractions on Sentosa and bring your kids instead, on a cycling escapade on this little isle. Bring along your kids’ bikes or you can easily hire from Segway Tours Singapore. There are also SG Bikes for hire at your disposal. To unlock these bikes, you'll have to install the SG Bike app and follow the instructions accordingly. Do note that there are a limited number of bikes, so availability is not always guaranteed.

    For the thrill-seeker families and those yearning for a look back at Singapore in the 60s, Pulau Ubin is THE place for your next biking venture.

Pile on the mozzie repellent and you’re in for an enjoyable ride. Check out Little Steps' Pulau Ubin guide here!
