Changi Beach Vibes

I've been saying forever that I want to explore Singapore's Changi area more.  And yet it's somewhere I've still not seemed to reach.  Until now.  A ten to fifteen minute cab ride from Changi Airport, you find a very different side of Singapore.  A welcome distraction from the glitz of Orchard Road or the overpriced drinks [...]
