From Changi Apt with Bus to Harbour Front

Sorry If I am reposting similar questions.....I am coming to Singapore on Feb 8th next month with 3 friends, wonder if we can take a bus from Changi Airport , how? to go to Harbour Front or around Marina Bay etc. We are arriving around 12 Singapore time and we would like to take a bus instead of MRT for sight seeing purpose, we actually have booked an accomodation at Little India so from Harbour Front we can then take MRT to Little India..also because we have only 3 days there, what else the best recommended things to do beside Sentosa Island/ Universal Studio 1 day visit?, to maximize the other 2 days? Thanks in advance for your kind advise and information...BR Jeri

Hello Jeri,

You can take bus no. 36 from the airport and alight along Raffles Avenue, either outside of the Floating Platform or Esplanade to get to Marina Bay. And then walk to Bayfront Avenue (opposite of MBS MICE) and catch bus no 97 to Harbourfront.

This will help plan your route.

For what to do, it all depends on where your interests lie. Have a look at the right hand side of this page under Top questions about Singapore and decide. Then post a draft itinerary here and contributors here will help you slot them it the proper order to maximise your available time.

Hope this helps.

Buses plying the airport is a bit more spacious but other city buses may not. So if you have large luggage it is not convenient to you and other passengers. There are no luggage space in buses. You will look like cheapskate with luggage in buses. Take buses without luggage.

Cheapest way is to walk to Sentosa from Vivocity. Otherwise take the Sentosa Express.

Seah Im Food Centre

Harbourfront MET Station Exit A. This is very busy during office lunchtime. Go slightly before the crowd arrives. No aircon but food is quite cheap.

The bustling hawker centre, located across the road from HarbourFront Centre, is popular among the office workers in the area and offers local favourites as well as a wide range of Muslim and Indian food.

Vivocity has a foodcourt and numerous eateries on the same level as the linkway to Harbourfront MRT station. Airconditioned but more expensive. Also very crowded during lunchtime.

Hi Jerry. Looking at Changi Airport website, there are free shuttle bus services from Terminal 3 to Bedok MRT on weekends and public holidays until 07 April 2014.
