Getting to Clementi Mall using MRT
Step 1: Walk to the nearest MRT station.
Regardless of where you are starting your trip in Singapore, you must access the closest station to get to Clementi Mall. If you do have the choice, try to stay at a hotel within walking distance of the nearest station.
You will avoid all taxi and parking fees by staying close to the metro.
When you consider Singapore’s intense afternoon heat, we suggest staying within two to three minutes of walking distance of your hotel or hostel.
Here are two examples of hotels that routinely receive positive review scores right near MRT stations:
Marina Bay Sands Hotel – 2 minutes from Bayfront Station
The Fullerton Hotel Singapore – 2 minutes to Raffles Place Station
Some of the most popular areas to stay include Sentosa, Chinatown, Little India, Marina Bay, Bugis and Geylang.
Step 2: Plan your MRT trip to Clementi Mall – Lines, Transfers and Closest Stations.
When you’re ready to visit Clementi Mall via MRT, find a metro map and plan your trip in advance.
There are maps in stations throughout the city.
The most convenient station for accessing Clementi Mall is easy to remember because it’s called Clementi Station (EW23).
It is located on the East-West Line, which is shown in Green colour on the metro map.
Step 3: Buy a Singapore Tourist Pass or a Stored Value Card for the MRT.
You have two main card choices for your trip to Clementi Mall in Singapore:
- Stored Value Cards
- Singapore Tourist Passes
We have used both stored-value cards and Singapore Tourist Passes to get around the city. But we used a stored value card while figuring out how to get to Clementi Mall by MRT.
Both cards function in a very similar manner.
Once you buy one, you must tap it to enter and exit the MRT. They are both suitable to use on buses as well.
Stored value cards have a running balance. Every time you use the MRT or go on a bus, your balance will be automatically deducted from your account.
Singapore Tourist Passes are designed for short-term guests visiting the city.
They are valid for 1-3 days and can save you a lot of money if you have a busy itinerary going to many different areas.
Step 4: Ride the MRT to Clementi Station (EW23).
Once you have your card and route planned, ride the MRT to Clementi Station (EW) on the East-West Line.
It’s wise to plan your transfers in advance if you are not starting your trip on the East-West Line.
For example, if you were staying in Marina Bay, you could transfer to the East-West line at Raffles Place or City Hall Station. Then, simply travel along the East-West Line to Clementi Station.
Step 5: Get off the train.

We suggest staying downtown in Marina Bay and heading west on the East-West Line if you want to visit Clementi Mall.
