The Bottle Tree Village located rather away from the main road at the end of Jalan Mempurong, is another ulu ulu place where you get to see  Bottle Trees which had been imported from Australia by the owners.   Apart from the unique trees, other Australian flora can be spotted in the surroundings.  Andrew Avenue leading to this place, is a secluded road and surrounded by trees.   On the way, we will come across the Preserved Heritage Melayu Penempatan Mosque which was built in the1970s.  At the end of the road,  we will emerge into the Bottle Tree Village, a well established rustic village-like place.  There, we could look across the wide and vast sea of the Straits of Johore and enjoy the sea breeze.
Walk continues through the Simpang Kiri Park Connector which runs along Sungei Simpang Kiri, rich in natural vegetations on both sides of the riverbanks.  Enjoy a tranquil experience and try spotting the vast varieties of birds, ranging from water birds like the Kingfisher, Egrets and Water Hens to seasonal migratory birds such as sandpipers.  We will end the walk at Canberra Link to take Bus No 882 back to Sembawang Bus Interchange / MRT station.  Those who drive will take Bus No 882 from across the road  to Car Park 2 to collect their cars.  For those who wish to, can adjourn for dinner at the many eateries in Sun Plaza.

This time round, it is not just the Boardwalk that you gonna walk!  We have planned some extras so you will be stretched……….but it is easy for your feet, the route is beautiful and very scenic; lots of greenery and water…..

A favourite family and recreational destination since colonial times, Changi Point today continues to draw people with its idyllic setting and laid-back charm. With its lure of lush greenery, breezy corners, gentle seas and colonial charm, Changi Point provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.

A walk along the rustic Changi Point coastline is not to be missed!  A charming boardwalk takes you through lush greenery and undulating terrain along the rugged western coastline, while a meandering waterfront walkway along the eastern beachfront creates an interesting tropical experience of sea and sand.  Viewing decks and pavilions along the way enable you to pause, soak in the sea breeze and enjoy the excellent views out at sea.

The Changi Point Coastal Walk is divided into six segments, each with its unique experience :
–  Sunset Walk, has beautiful view of the sunset, hence its name
–   Kelong Walk, reminisce the good old kelong days as you tramp on wooden stilts
–   Cliff Walk takes you through the rugged western coastline
–   Sailing Point Walk, enjoy views of the sailboats and the expanse of the sea
–   Beach Walk, a relaxing coastal walk along sandy beaches,  along the way pause, soak in the sea breeze and enjoy the views out to sea  
–   Creek Walk, appreciate the views, sights and sounds of the bumboat activities ferrying the public to and from the offshore islands.

 

At the end of the walk there is —
1)  Changi Village hawker centre where there are various food stalls,  including the International      Muslim Food Stall at #01-57 for its famous Nasi Lemak and perpectually long queue.

2)  An International Buffet dinner with BBQ items, at the Saltwater Cafe in Changi Village Hotel.  
     Per head $37.70 after 20% discount (DBS credit card). 
If you wish to join in the buffet dinner, please indicate so that we can make reservations.
