Changi Village information
On the far northeast coast of Singapore, Changi Village is an escape from the city mayhem. The low-slung buildings are modern, but there’s still a village atmosphere; the lively hawker centre next to the bus terminus is the focal point. Changi Beach (where thousands of Singaporean civilians were executed during WWII), lapped by the polluted waters of the Straits of Johor, is lousy for swimming, but there’s a good stretch of sand. The ferry terminal for catching a bumboat to Pulau Ubin is located opposite the hawker centre. Bus 2 from Tanah Merah MRT runs here.
