Changi Village

Changi Village, Singapore

Off the beaten track, Changi Village shows a more relaxed side of Singapore. The local beach has clean sand that attracts fishermen and bathers alike, especially on weekends.

In the village itself, there are plenty of bargains to be found - T-shirts, electronic equipment, carpets, Indian cotton clothing, shoes, batik dresses, kimonos and all types of table linen. When hunger strikes, head for the food centre or try one of the restaurants along the main street. Relax in the shade of an umbrella, order some fresh seafood and watch the world go by.

The Changi Chapel & Museum which is within the vicinity, is well worth a visit.

Getting There: Take the MRT to Tanah Merah Station (EW4) and board SBS bus 2.
