Getting to Changi City Point via MRT
Step 1: Access the most convenient MRT Station.
Making your way to Changi City point is a very easy endeavour. But, it does get one more challenging if you are not staying close to an MRT station. Most Singaporeans and permanent residents will likely already know which station to access in relation to their house or condo in the city. So, you can skip down to step 2 if you wish!
If you are visiting Singapore, you should consider spending enough time selecting a property within walking distance of a station. Not only will this save you unnecessary taxi fees, but you will also avoid walking too far in Singapore’s intense afternoon heat.
Singapore has some excellent areas to stay in. Here are just a few hotels that are within 3 minutes (or less) from their neighbouring stations:
Marina Bay Sands (5-star, 9.0/10 review score, very close to Bayfront Station)
The Fullerton Hotel (5-star, 9.0/10 review score, 2 minutes from Raffles Place Station)
Swissotel The Stamford (5-star, 9.0/10 review score, directly across from City Hall Station)
As you can see, all of these properties receive positive guest review scores from visitors. There are hundreds of other hotels within walking distance of stations in Singapore, so be sure to take your time and select the right place for you. That will make your trip to Changi City Point via MRT much more efficient and cost-effective.
Step 2: Buy an MRT ticket/card for your trip to Changi City Point.
There are several different ticket options for getting to Changi City Point.
But, based on our experience, the main factors that you should consider are how long you plan to travel around Singapore (are you a visitor or local), and how frequently do you plan on using the bus and train services?
Stored Value Cards
Stored value cards are one option for getting to Changi City Point. These cards are popular with Singaporeans, permanent residents and tourists staying longer than three days in Singapore.
We used a stored value card while learning how to get to Changi City Point by MRT.
Once you buy and top up your stored value card with cash, all you need to do is simply tap it to enter and exit the MRT network. Long as you keep a running balance on the card, these are super easy to use and very highly recommended for long-term guests in the city.
Best Option for Busy Foreign Tourists?
Singapore Tourist Passes
You can buy a Singapore Tourist Pass and use it to get to Changi City Point.
Tourist Passes are ideal for foreign visitors spending 1, 2, or 3 days in Singapore.
But they aren’t for everyone!
Since you are entitled to unlimited bus and train rides through Singapore with one of these passes, you must make sure that you have a busy itinerary planned to get your money out of them. You pay upfront for unlimited rides, so make sure that your itinerary is busy enough to warrant the upfront costs.
If you are only using the Pass to reach Changi City Point, you won’t get your money out of the card!
We highly recommend buying an Attraction Pass to go along with a Tourist Pass. With over 200,000 already purchased, it’s a common way to save up to 52% on entrance fees to Singapore’s top attractions.
Step 3: Plan your trip on the Downtown or East-West Line to Expo Station.
Before travelling towards Changi City Point, make sure that you know which lines to take and which station is best.
First of all, the best station (by far) for directly accessing Changi City Point is Expo Station. To get to Expo without any unexpected headaches, refer to the line information below.
Line Information for Reaching Changi City Point
Expo Station is a stop on two different MRT lines in Singapore:
Downtown Line (also known as the Blue Line)
East-West Line (Green Line)
Knowing the neighbouring stations to Expo can help you prepare to get off the train at the right time.
Here they are for your convenience:
Changi Station – providing airport access on the East-West Line.
Tanah Merah – west on the East-West Line
Upper Changi – north on the Downtown Line
All of these stations are only a few minutes away from Expo Station and Changi City Point.
Step 4: Travel on the MRT network to Expo Station.
Take either the Circle or East-West Line to reach Expo Station. Both of these lines are popular with people staying in downtown Singapore, so check which one makes more sense from your initial starting point.
**Keep in mind that you will have to transfer at Tanah Merah to the Changi portion of the East-West Line to reach Changi City Point.
Remember to move closer to an exit when you reach one of the neighbouring stations.
Step 5: Alight at Expo MRT Station.
When the train arrives at Expo, alight with all of your personal belongings. You should begin to see signs as you step off the train.
Step 6: Exit and walk directly to Changi City Point from Expo Station.

Exits A, B, C, D, and E provide access to the neighbouring streets, whereas exits F and G are connected to the Basement level of adjacent buildings in the area.
Take Exit F to walk from Expo Station directly to Changi City Point.
Exit F will bring you directly to Changi City Point via Level B1 of the station. Follow the multiple signs to the mall. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about walking outside and dealing with street-level directions.
How long should it take you to walk from Expo Station to Changi City Point?

Should you stay in the area around Changi City Point or elsewhere in Singapore?
Selecting the area to stay in Singapore is an important decision from both practical and financial perspectives.
Changi City Point is located within Changi Business Park and also minutes from Changi Airport. Therefore, you can expect the natural flow of visitors to the mall from the airport area and the adjacent corporate buildings.

Review your itinerary and see whether it makes more sense to stay in this immediate area or to stay in a popular area such as Marina Bay in the city center.
