Changi Airport - and its neighbouring mega mall Jewel too - is, well, the jewel of this neighbourhood. Two additional terminals, an indoor garden and plenty of shopping options are planned for expansion, creating new work openings within the future. In any case, Changi has much more to offer than that. The seaside neighbourhood is a charming locale nestled in the Eastern corner of Singapore. Shopping options and amenities abound in Jewel Changi Airport, while Changi Point Ferry Terminal is the starting point of your next weekend getaway to Pulau Ubin and the other neighbouring islands. Changi Beach is also incredibly popular for recreational activities like barbecue parties, camping, and water sports. Housing options in the Changi Airport subzone are mostly private properties, but with a smattering of HDB flats in and around the area. 


Changi Airport serves more than 100 airlines flying to 400 cities in around 100 countries and territories worldwide. It is one of the largest transportation hubs in Asia, with flights arriving or departing almost every 80 seconds. The airport is one of the most iconic landmarks of eastern Singapore. The neighbourhood that houses the airport is full of housing options. Quieter than you expect and charmingly rustic, the Changi Airport neighbourhood is perfect for both families and young professionals looking to settle down somewhere removed from the chaos of the city.

Changi Airport - Eat & Drink

Outside, there are plenty of other eateries and cafes near Changi Airport. Bambooze Bistro at Block 5 Changi Village Road is a comfortable, friendly hangout spot for a pint of beer or a cocktail, while Jacob's Cafe on the same block serves up both local and western food.

On the other end of the spectrum is Changi Village Hawker Centre for affordable, delicious local delights in the humid heat. Albeit tucked away along the coast of Singapore, it's still worth the travel and especially satisfying after a long bike ride along Changi Beach. The International Muslim Nasi Lemak and Commando Dessert are the two dishes Changi Village is more than well-known for. But definitely be prepared for long, long queues though.

Another must-try is the Chicken Cutlet Hor Fun from Weng Kee Ipoh Hor Fun, and the chicken wings from Changi Village Best BBQ Chicken Wings. On a rainy day, a bowl of sliced fish soup from Guang Xing Original Taste Fish Head Bee Hoon would do just the trick.
