A Day Out: 7 Reasons Why Far-Flung Changi Is A Must-Visit Singapore Neighbourhood

A visit to this far corner of SG is worth it (and not just to go to the airport!). 

Located in the island’s easternmost area, Changi allegedly got its name from the tall Chengal Pasir or Chengal Mata Kuching tree that used to grow in this district. Changi was also known for its coconut plantations in the 1800s, and as a trendy resort area from 1845, with government- and private-owned bungalows available for recreational use.

It’s home to Changi Airport, which recently added the super-luxe Terminal 4. Bonus: This terminal is completely eco-friendly, with greenwall facades of 16,000 plants, lots of natural lighting and more.
