Enjoying the outdoors with family and friends is a popular weekend activity for Singaporeans, so we're super excited that there's a brand-new cycling route in the east! The Changi Airport Connector covers popular attractions like Gardens By The BayEast Coast ParkJewel Changi Airport, and Changi Airport so you can enjoy the sights of the east (and even the city) in a whole new way. 🤩 The Connector runs from the south end of Changi Airport Terminal 2 to Gardens By The Bay for a total of 19km, linking the east coast of the country to the popular Marina Bay area via East Coast Park. If 19km is too daunting for you don't worry because there are various routes you can take! The connector between Changi Airport to East Coast Park is about 5km total which is more manageable. 😊

You can even return the bikes at any GoCycling kiosk across the country so check out their kiosk map here to start planning your day out!  GoCycling @ Changi Airport  Rates: from $8/hr (Adult), from $6 (Child), $16 (night rental package), $40 (24-hour rental package for adults) Opening hours: 10AM-8PM (Mon-Fri), 9AM-9PM (Sat-Sun)

Get creative with your poses - and listen out for the occasional roar from the exhibits!
Credit: Changi Airport Jurassic Mile is open 24-hours daily and has free entry for all visitors. 😁 If you plan to visit between 9AM-12AM on Fri-Sun, a booking is required in advance as it can get crowded!

HUB & SPOKE is a one-stop facility where you can rent bicycles, enjoy 24-hour bicycle parking, and even freshen up with pay-per-use showers and lockers! 😄 So you can head to Jewel Changi Airport for a yummy post-bike ride meal without feeling sticky and sweaty. HUB & SPOKE Bicycle lockers: Available 24-hours daily ($5 per use in 1 day - complimentary bicycle parking is also available at Changi Airport Terminal 2 and Terminal 4) Showers: Open daily; 7AM - 10PM ($3 per entry, $5 per two-time entry)

Do note that the cafe is not currently halal-certified and serves alcoholic beverages although it does not use pork or lard in any of its dishes. If your stomach is rumbling after a long day out, we recommend checking out the halal food at Changi Airport or enjoying a halal meal at Jewel Changi Airport instead. 😋 However the Cafe is still a great place to snap your #OOTD as it has lots of green spots and natural lighting around! Tell your friends and family it's time to plan an exciting day out at the Changi Airport Connector! 😁
