Spend a week exploring offshore sanctuaries, finding inner balance and unwinding in the heart of the city.
1 Pulau Ubin
Located on the eastern end of Singapore, the charming suburb of Changi is home to quaint cafes, laidback vibes and local fare. For breakfast, we recommend visiting Changi Village Hawker Centre and hunting for a dish of nasi lemak, before grabbing a cup of joe at Chock Full of Beans.
When you’re done exploring, make a beeline for Changi Point Ferry Terminal, where you’ll be able to hitch a bumboat ride to Pulau Ubin. With its rustic shrines, swamplands and scenic summits, this sanctuary is the perfect place for explorers looking to unwind and deepen their love for nature.
2 Jewel Changi Airport
In the evening, pay a visit to Jewel Changi Airport. You probably caught a glimpse of this glimmering ten-story nexus when landing in Singapore, but this gem of a building certainly warrants further exploration.
There’s a staggering array of retail and food options here. To get you started, we suggest taking a stroll through the lush Hedge Maze, shopping for souvenirs at Supermama and knocking back a cold brew at Tiger Street Lab. Round off your day with a visit to NING, where you’ll experience relaxing massages that fuse traditional Chinese treatments with contemporary techniques.
