Changi Boardwalk - RT/WW


boardwalk built on kelong stilts

We have visitors in town during the Christmas and New Year holidays, so we were busy exploring Singapore. One early Sunday morning, we brought our guests to Changi Boardwalk.


Viewing decks provide panoramic views of the surroundings


I didn't know that such breathtaking views exist amidst the concrete jungles of Singapore. I should stop my window-shopping in the air-con malls. :P



The boardwalk is popular for its fishing spots

There were several groups of people fishing on Kelong Walk. A few young kids were with their parents. They had camped overnight. I peeked into some of their buckets, there were several big fishes. -o-


open views of the sea.

Some lucky people have the luxury of 'rocking themselves gently to DreamLand' in their own private sail boats. *envy*


Fancy a walk through lush greenery?

We spent two hours walking through lush greenery and took time to admire the views. We should come back for the sunset one day.... it would be beautiful.

Directions to Changi Boardwalk :
By Car
From town, take the East Coast Parkway Expressway (ECP), heading eastbound and turning into Pan Island Expressway (PIE). From the PIE turn out to Loyang Avenue to head directly to Changi Village, turning off at Netheravon Road.

By Bus
Bus number 29 from Tampines Interchange
Bus number 2 from Bras Basah Road (downtown)
Bus number 89 from Pasir Ris MRT station

  1. Great place to spend the day, ECL! This year I plan to walk more and lessen my unproductive time in front of the pc :)

  2. I've been here before, it is very peaceful esp when it's not so hot and the wind is blowing strong. Feels so nice and calming. Singapore may be highly developed with skyscrapers but they still keep the nature for the enjoyment of the people. They just need to know where to look for it..

  3. I would only think of Singapore as a concrete jungle if not for your posts ECL!
    You made me change my mind about that. Indeed, those are breathtaking view. Wish I was there.

  6. This is new to me ECL.Is it situated in the former Changi Hospital area.There were lovely Govt & Co bungalows there that my Dad sometimes rented during the school hols.After dinner we used to walk down the slopes to see the boats.I can still smell the salty air and feel the cool breeze blowing in my hair.*sigh*
    I love the Changi area.Its nice to see its kept its peaceful & faraway atmosphere.I have very happy childhood memories there.

  8. Wonderful shots ECL. I think it's easy to forget places that are in our own city until showing them to visitors. Maybe you'll go back on your own now that you're reminded of this beautiful spot.

  9. Thanks for sharing. I had been to Changi beach which is nearby Changi boardwalk, but somehow I had missed the Changi boardwalk. It looks like there's reason for me to visit the area again.

    Nature often inspires more than air-conditioned malls.

  13. Angel,
    It is truly relaxing and enjoyable to take a stroll on the boardwalk on a cool, breezy morning. I should do it more often.

    There are cool places we can visit in Singapore, I have discovered a few of them. :)

  14. Lina,
    That's the impression of my many foreign friends who usually just go to Orchard Road and the popular tourist areas in Singapore.

    There are many more places in Singapore that are worth visiting.

  15. Chris,
    Just sitting on the sandy beach or under a shady tree, enjoying the cool sea breeze and admire the beautiful views can be such a joy! sighhh...

  17. jean,
    You're right. This section of the boardwalk is just in front of the Government bungalows and Changi Sailing club.

    I was invited to a few BBQ parties in some of the holiday bungalows, enjoyed myself and hope for a house by the beach. :P

    You seem to have so much fun when you were young and living in Singapore.

  18. Gattina,
    i would love to visit your town and explore its history.

    I thought I had been to every corner in my country, in fact there are many more places waiting to be discovered.... with foreign guests. lol

  19. Carver,
    I would definitely go back to capture the sunrise and sunset of this beautiful place.

    Not many of my foreign visitors like to explore our little country. They prefer shopping. :)

    The boardwalk is more than 2 km long and it is one enjoyable walk with scenic views.

    When shall we go to Pulau Ubin? :)

  21. day-dreamer,
    Visit this lovely boardwalk, btw there are some famous eateries selling yummy food nearby.

    You can also take a short ferry to a little island nearby. It's called Pulau Ubin.

  22. Great capture! The place looks so peaceful, perfect for a good walk and a dip probably (if the water is not cold, haha). :)
