PHOTOWALK: Changi Village

2h over 1 session

Course Description

In a part of Singapore perhaps best known for its world-class airport also lies idyllic Changi Village. Situated at the northern tip of Changi, this seafront area’s laidback feel today belies its pivotal role in the country’s history as a site of both leisure and loss in the pre-independence days. Despite the ups and downs it has borne witness to, and multiple rounds of redevelopment since, Changi Village retains a unique, charming flavour compared to the thick of the city. 

Join artist Amrita Chandradas for a leisurely guided photowalk through Changi Village on a balmy Saturday afternoon. Explore the famous Changi Village Hawker Centre and its bustling stalls, cozy waterfront establishments from cafes to breweries, places of worship like Sree Ramar Temple and Maranatha Bible Presbyterian Church and storied establishments such as the Civil Service Club, Changi Sailing Club, and Changi Beach Club. 

Best of all, enjoy the coastal walking trails that offer close-up views of local flora and fauna, bustling bumboats and elegant yachts, and look out to Singapore’s offshore islands. Take in the distinct scent of the seabreeze and the sounds of gently lapping waves while photographing a splendid sunset together.

Participants are to bring their own cameras they are comfortable with; smartphones are suitable too.
