From Changi airport to Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal

Hi, all, need some advice for a coming trip to S'pore/Bintan island.

I will arr at Changi airport at midnight and thinking take the first ferry to Bintan island second day morning (booked hotel there already).

1. Could anyone please advise what's the quickest way to get from airport to the ferry terminal? any subway or by taxi?

2. I want to have a look the new Marina Sands Casino on the way back to Melbourne, so like take the first ferry back from Bintan and then go to have a quick wander there before take night flight (like 8pm) back to Australia, is this workable--will it be too rush, it's like 6 hours (assume first ferry back to S'pore like 11am) ?

Many thanks,

Yanathome

Hello Yanathome

1) The ferry terminal is very close to the airport so a taxi wil be the best. There is a peak hour surcharge (35% of metered fare) if you take the taxi between 7am-930am (http://www.taxisingapore.com/taxi-fare/) and 5pm-8pm.

2) 6 hours is probably enough to cover the trip if it is only the Casino you are visiting. I heard the museum there is worth a trip too. Remember it'll be peak hour on your way to the airport so make sure you carve out at least 30 mins for the trip back to the airport.

Best wishes
