Travelling from Changi Airport to Town (Dhoby Ghaut, Somerset, Orchard)

Upon arrival at Singapore Changi Airport and after collecting your luggages, you may proceed to the train station at Changi Airport. Follow the signs “Train” which would probably assist you in getting there. For those who arrives at Terminal 1, here is the tricky part. Changi Airport MRT Station is accessible by walking from both Terminal 2 and 3 only. For Terminal 1 arrival, you have to take the Skytrain from Terminal 1 to either Terminal 2 or 3, and then walk over to the Changi Airport MRT Station.

Once you arrive at Changi Aiport MRT Station, purchase your ticket (either standard ticket or ez-link card) to the choice of your destination. Standard Ticket to be purchased at the Automated Ticket Machine. Ez-link card to be purchased at the Passenger Service counter.

Board any train that arrives at the station that states “Tanah Merah”. Do take note that taking the train involves multiple changes in the train lines. It is 2 stops away from Changi Aiport to Tanah Merah MRT station taking about less than 10minutes. Once you reach Tanah Merah MRT station, you will chance upon two (2) different platforms. Go on to the platform that states “Towards Joo Koon”/”To City”.

Once on board, take the train to “City Hall” and stop to change to another line towards town. At City Hall MRT Station, just cross over the platform to the opposite side to take the train towards town. The train station should state “Towards Jurong East”. Board the train and you will reach your destination in the next few stops.

From Orchard MRT station to Lucky Plaza Apartment Building.

Once you have arrived at Orchard MRT and tapped out, head towards Exit A. Look at the map at the train station for guide. As you walk towards Exit A, you will chance upon the first escalator up, take that escalator towards Tangs Plaza. Do take note that there are a few steps up and down there so you might have to carry your luggages. Once at the top of the escalator, turn left towards Tangs Plaza. Walk towards Tangs Plaza. Turn right towards Lucky Plaza Shopping Mall. Walk over and cross the zebra/carpark road. You will see a long ramp at the side of Lucky Plaza Shopping Mall beside Royal Sporting House. Take the ramp up to Lucky Plaza Shopping Mall Level 1. Turn right and walk pass the shopping mall lift lobby. (Take note that Lucky Plaza Shopping Mall and Lucky Plaza Apartment Block has different lift lobby). Once you walk pass the lift lobby, go up the escalator towards Level 2. Turn right at the end of the escalator and walk pass the shops. Ahead of you is the Lucky Plaza Apartment Building Lift Lobby with 4 lifts.

From here, you have reached your destination. Give us a call when you reached!
