The East Coast of Singapore is largely residential and offers few sights as such most visitors just cross it on their way from and to Changi Airport. For the local people of Singapore, the main attractions are 20 kilometres of white sandy beach and the food. The East Coast's second area of historical interest is Katong and Joo Chiat, which still preserve a bit of traditional shophouses and shops specializing in Peranakan crafts and food. The area is a fairly lengthy hike from Eunos, the nearest MRT station, but can be reached by eg. Bus 12 from Bugis. There is also plenty of great food in the area. The East West Line of the Singapore MRT pass through the Tampines, alongside Bedok, Tanah Merah where it breaks into the Pasir Ris and Changi Airport links.
In the evenings, one can indulge in barbecues or enjoy various cuisines at the nearby food street or restaurants while relaxing in the cool sea breeze. East Coast Park is spread over 185 hectares, and has a scenic coastline that spans more than 15 kms.
