Add a Point to the Map

The Changi and Pasir Ris area are located at the easternmost end of Singapore and are usually considered to have a more laidback atmosphere as compared to the hustle and bustle of the city. What these areas lack in sophistication, they make up for with rustic charm and alternative activities.

This charm can be seen best in the Changi area and specifically, Changi Village where the pace of life is relatively slower. Next to it is Changi Beach which can get very crowded on weekends as people flock here to escape the hustle and bustle of the city by enjoying a stroll along the beach or a picnic. Other than rustic charm, there are also hidden gems in Changi. The Changi Prison Museum and Chapel is one such gem. Its existence as a grim reminder of the horrors of war masks the uplifting stories of heroism that can be found in stories on the walls of the Museum. Another such gem is the Loyang Tua Pek Kong Temple found at Loyang Way. One of the rare temples where deities of different religions are housed together, the presence of Chinese, Hindu and Muslim deities reflect Singapore’s multicultural society.

While Pasir Ris may not have the rustic charm of Changi, it is a haven alternative activities. For fishing enthusiasts, there is the Pasir Ris Fishing Pond where fishing and prawning are available 24 hours a day. The nearby Pasir Ris Park also offers inline skating and cycling for those looking for sporting activities while there is also a mangrove forest for those wish to get in touch with nature.

Changi is also home to Changi Point Ferry Terminal where bumboats to the nearby Pulau Ubin operate out of.
