Changi Village Things to Do
Singapore is one of the cleanest, safest countries in the world. As a city-state, the entire country basically is one big city. Due to this, the city is broken down into villages. Here are some activities to enjoy while visiting the village of Changi.
This area of Singapore is not nearly as built up as other areas of the country and more quaint than other villages. The Changi Boardwalk is 1.2km long and runs between the coastline and the Changi Beach Club. You’ll be able to enjoy the weather and the water while stopping by small shops. If you’re looking for the oversized and polished look of Singapore, you’ll need to head somewhere else. This more closely resembles a fishing village.
Changi Chapel and Museum
This museum is mostly dedicated to wartime artifacts both from Singapore and from Japan. Japan played a major role in Singapore’s history during the Second World War. There is a mixture of not only Japanese artifacts but also British, who had colonized the country previously. The small museum is clean and bright. If you’re interested in learning about the village and about what took place around Singapore during World War II, make sure to stop by.
Changi Sree Ramar Temple
Singapore is home to more religions than any other country in the region. While Malaysia to the north and Indonesia to the south are largely Islamic nations, Singapore served as a gateway for different religious ideas and beliefs due to its colonization and major trading ports. You can find most major religions here. If you are not use to seeing Hindu temples, the Changi Sree Ramar Temple is a mesmerizing example of the colorful artchitecture. Just be mindful that people worship here. If you do enter, remove your shoes and refrain from taking pictures of people.
Changi Boat Jetty
Taking a boat tour is a fun break from walking, which you’ll probably do a considerable amount of in Changi. Close to the village is the boat jetty. Here you can take a short boat ride, either with your own group or with a larger tour. Seeing the area from water gives you a completely different perspective, which can show you just how different the Changi village is from the rest of built-up Singapore.
Always try the local food. The food in Singapore is some of the best in the world, again because it served as a crossroad port for regions all around the world. While you won’t find street vendors, you can stop in at an outdoor food court to find this delicious food.
