TAMPINES

Tampines is one of those neighbourhoods that East-side lovers will defend to their death. (Seriously, just ask any resident there and they’ll wax lyrical about their love for it). Besides that, the area features three malls in a cluster (a feat that’s only matched by Jurong East), and massive stores by big brands like IKEA, Courts and Giant for all your shopping needs. If you need a break from all the urban noise, Tampines Eco Green is your go-to for nature and bird-watching activities.
