“A good hangout in the East of Singapore.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Located in the neighborhood of Pasir Ris. MRT- green line, last stop.

Nearby there is a shopping mall-Whitesands and sports complex hub.

Dining experience will not be a disappointment. From Asian to western food, all can be found at 1 stop. Budget alternative will be small eatery, fast food and food court in the resort.

This place is split to 2 section, downtown east and E-hub.

There's a indoor playground for kids at E-hub, known as Explorer Kids. Cinema, Gym and KTV are within reach in minutes.

If you prefer to bond with the beach and nature, there's Pasir ris park near to Downtown east. Renting a bike from the kiosk is easy and you can slowly cycle your way ard to see how the locals spend their weekend. Visit Mangrove Swamp if you are keen.

You can also rent a chalet for 2D1N if you want to spend more time there to enjoy the water rides at Wild wild wet. Family with kids will like the thrilling and refreshing rides this water theme park offers.

With mega bounce obstacle outside D'Marque, kids will be thrilled and enjoy double fun in the same day.

“Neighbourhood hangout.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Another regional food-beverage-entertainment complex. Beach resorts, local interest (could one say "import-substitution"?) theme parks, food-beverage-cinema outlets and their customers have called this place home over the years. Currently morphing a bit upscale. New condos springing up.

Is this a "destination" for the international visitor? Probably not. But if you're looking for a visit to "the Singapore heartlands", Pasir Ris is a nice example of suburban planning. If you come to Pasir Ris, this might be a good stop on that tour.

“Suburban entertainment near pasir ris beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2014 via mobile

If you want a different track, something not so touristy, then this is the place. It's located one bus stop away from pasir ride mrt. A one stop entertainment hub, the nearby chalets could be an option for a short one or two nights stay.

“Nice mix of restaurants and entertainment options”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 December 2013

Mostly for the locals, this has a nice mix of restaurants and entertainment options, ranging from cinemas, a bowling alley, a small racing track, a water world, an NTUC supermarket and even a huge indoor ferris wheel. Foodwise, you can choose from almost any cuisine, from pasta to vegetarian to bread. Our favourites include Lemongrass for Thai food, Sakura for steamboat and the Asli village for excellent Muslim food like satay, mee goreng and Indian rojak. Try to snag the two tables with swings as seats.

Parking has also been enhanced with the multi-storey carpark. You can also use the MRT, alighting at the nearby Pasir Ris station which is located to White Sands Mall.

“A good suburban entertainment outlet.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2013

There's a 6 screen cinema, a bowling alley, an outdoor water theme park, an internet/LAN gaming cafe, arcade and billards/snooker outlet. On top of that, there are tons of eateries available including fast food. KFC, McDonalds, Burger King, a couple of food courts and several restaurants. If you are looking to shop though, this probably won't satisfy you as there is not much really.
