Where can you go and what can you do after checking out of your hotel at 12 noon in Singapore and you can only check in at the airport in the evening? You are done with your shopping & sightseeing and nothing else to do. Are you going to sit in the hotel lobby or airport for 5 hours and wait for your time to pass? Fret Not! Head for Belly View Cafe at 11, Changi Coast Walk.
Belly View Café is owned by Constant Wind Pte Ltd, a sailing school/sailing equipment pro-shop. Ardent sailors from all over the world come here to buy windsurfing equipment. The place is sited just next to the beach about 7 minutes from Changi airport. You don’t have to worry about missing your flight as taxi is readily available and it only take 7 minutes from Changi airport.
The Café offers alfresco dining right next to the beach – there are wooden decks for dining or sunbathing on the breakwaters. They serve Chinese local fare at hawker prices. The folks in Singapore work very hard Monday to Friday and so the place is very quiet on weekdays. Many expatriates go there to chill out in the evening after a hard day’s work. Also, as the place is inaccessible without a car, you are assured of quiet place to wild away your time or have a last suntan.
After checking out of your hotel, take a taxi to Belly View Café. You can have your lunch there. The F&B Manager, Doris is a very friendly and jovial lady and speak good English. After lunch, you can go for a dip (if no one is sailing) or just suntan at the wooden deck. Have a cold fresh coconut or lime juice or a cold beer. You can put your luggage near Doris’s service area and ask Doris to look after your luggage for you. The best thing is you can have a proper bath before you broad your plane. The bath facilities are free for patrons. You can ask Doris to help you book a cab to the airport. The Tanah Merah Ferry terminal is just next door and so there are many cabs plying the area. So, getting a taxi is no problem. You will be at the airport in 7 mins.
How is that for a last stop before flying off from Singapore? Your most memorable last stop. The last unspoilt corner in Singapore.
