Explore the Changi Precinct

Mr Lim Ching Kiat, Changi Airport Group’s Managing Director of Air Hub Development, said, “Many of the travellers who fly to Changi Airport are interested to venture beyond the airport to explore the Changi Precinct, which is rich with local history and culture. Hence, Changi Airport Group has been working with various partners around Changi Airport over the last two years to promote appreciation of the many hidden gems of the eastern part of Singapore. We invite local residents and travellers to kickstart their journey of exploring the charms of Singapore’s East through the “Hello, Changi Precinct” gallery. We hope this allows them to understand the Changi Precinct deeper and encourage exploration of lesser-known spots in Singapore.”
