Changi Beach Park Things to Do

  • Catch the Sunrise here!

    If you can wake up early enought, you may want to come here to catch the beautiful sunrise. I took this photo at around 7am. It will be good to standby at around 6.40am at the beach. I think the morning sun is beautiful. Sacrificing a few hours of sleep is worth it after all.

  • Birdwatching in Singapore

    Birdwatching is a hobby among geeky Singaporeans. Yes, I'm a geek, why else would I spend so much time doing my webapage? Still, birdwatching is a rewarding hobby and there are pockets of areas where you can see indigenous and migratory birds. Changi coast area ( the unmarked trails near the ferry terminal) is just one of them. Another good point...

  • Oriental pied hornbill

    (Anthracoceros albirostris) (Malaysian Pied Hornbill)Today is a first for me. I actually spotted a pair of Oriental Pied Hornbills just opposite Changi Village Hotel while walking the carpark! At first when I heard the Incessant cackle, I thought it was a red-breasted parakeet. But my jaw dropped when I saw the black and white feathers and a flash...

  • Not an ordinary raven

    Brown-necked Raven ?Corvus ruficollis ?The ravens found off the coast of Changi have brown collars. At first, I thought that the dust from all the reclaimation got onto their glossy black feathers but when I saw more than 10 with the same colour, they had to be of a different species..

  • Beach Combing in Changi

    Do you know that the natural shore lines of Singapore have a diverse ecosystem? Of course, when I mention natural, I'm not talking about East Coast Park or Sentosa's Palawan. The only life you'll see there are half naked things in bikinis and too tight trunks. Back to where I was saying, try going to SIngapore's natural beach if you can. You'll see...

  • Red-breasted Parakeet

    I think you'd be as surprised as I am when I tell you that you can spot this exotic species of birds in Changi Village! Yes, the same place where you tuck into nasi lemak and oogle at sexy transvestites. I'm not joking, i spotted this colourful fella or the Red-breasted Parakeet (Psittacula alexandri) and nearly choked on my Teh Tarik (tea latte)....

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After I went back from Yogya, I craved for good fried spiced chicken. Somehow, the good Colonel did not satisfy me. I wanted to eat something that was more Asian. So, I did the next best thing . Troop off to Changi Village Hawker Centre and order a wooden platter of fried smashed chicken. Yes, that is what ayam penyet means literally. It's served over here with a smashing ( no pun intended ) chilli or sambal sauce and garnished with lettuce and cucumber. It was good and the vegetables? The crisp raw taste cut through the oily flesh. Ah...heaven. I washed it down with teh tarik.

Changi Beach Park Warnings and Dangers

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    To travel in such nice places as this is to find lovely secluded beaches. With so many beaches usually with few beach goers , Many visitors let their guard down and lay in the sun for too long. The most dangerous of all for sunburn is snorkelling as swimmers don't realise that they are being burnt as they are in the cool water. The sunshine around the tropics is extremely strong, hot, and unforgiving..Make sure that you have a strong sunscreen to use when out in the sun. I ALWAYS carry a strong sunscreen of at least 15 + Be sure to cover your nose and tops of your ears with sunscreen as these are the most prevelant areas for skin cancer..
    Wear a wide brimmed hat and a good pair of sunglasses is a must in the sun.
    Make sure to have sufficient drinking water with you also. Especially when you are in secluded areas.
