The up and coming East Coast

Sun, sea, sand and shopping, what more could you want on your doorstep. I hear that a few years ago not much was happening on the East Coast of Singapore but now it's pretty up and coming!

The beach is perfect for a run or walking the dog. Walkers, cyclists and rollerbladers have their own designated paths to make things totally accident free...of course, it's Singapore!

You can hire a tandem bike for the bargain price of $8 for 2 hours, and explore all the way up to Changi Airport. You must stop off at one of the best hawker centers I’ve been to, East Coast Lagoon Food Village, for some chicken wings and lime juice. Also next to that is the wake boarding and water skiing lake - not my kind of thing but good for those sport enthusiasts.

The East Coast is famous for its Seafood Centre. But if you are bored with chilli crab and fish head curry you must go to Bruno’s. It has the most amazing pasta and pizza. The service is a bit on the slow side, but its worth the wait, and remember to book as they always get full!

The most recent addition to the area is the 112 Katong Shopping Mall. Everything you need from a wax at Strip, lunch at Din Tai Fung, and an afternoon sleeping in the chairs in Gold Class Cinema...bliss!

There are so many other weird and wonderful local restaurants, shops and places to visit on the East Coast. A trip to the city is a 10 minute taxi ride, and it's only 15 minutes to the airport (and your plane home)…I call that the place to be!
