Try pulau ubin, technically still in Singapore but it's a small rural island.

Relatively undeveloped. You can get catch a bus to Changi Village and then take a boat across. Cycling around the island is fun.

Another alternative is Johor Bahru for cheaper food/shopping or the exploring the surrounding area.

May want to consider flying to East Malaysia - Kota Kinabalu, Kuching. Flights quite reasonable and you can get good hotel deals.
You should try the white water rafting in KK. It's awesome!

Usually I go Batam for Spa, seafood, shopping...
Usually went on Sat, and back on Sun...

More or less like a 'short gateway' =D

Pulau Hantu, aka Ghost Island? You mean Singapore's solitary dive site, with pea-soup visibility and scenic vistas of container ships? :o
