Think neighbourhood malls are boring? The quartet of bustling shopping malls located just walking distance from Tampines MRT would kindly beg to differ. Whether you’re looking for a lived-in resale property listing or a spanking new BTO flat in the East, there’s no denying that those who love to shop will find themselves spoiled for choice in Tampines.
But hey, if you’re still on the fence about settling down in this ever-buzzing town, don’t fret. Here is a breakdown on why Tampines is the ultimate heartland destination when shopping in Singapore.
Tampines Mall for Millennials
Located a mere 180m walk from Tampines MRT, this longstanding heartland mall has recently caught the attention of caffeine junkies since the unveiling of Singapore’s very first Starbucks boutique concept. The boutique’s fresh, artisanal take on the popular Seattle coffee chain also offers unique features not found in a regular Starbucks. Tampines Mall’s shopping, dining, and entertainment scene do not come in short supply either with family favourites such as Bath & Body Works, H&M, Din Tai Fung, Golden Village, Toys”R”Us and more.
Century Square for Weekenders
A short 190m stroll from Tampines Mall will get you to Century Square. Fresh off the mall’s exciting revamp, you’ll see that not only does it look different from the outside but venture in and you’ll find that there are plenty more stores to explore (50 percent more in fact). Following these latest developments, Century Square can very well be the next go-to weekend hangout for you and your family with shops like Foot Locker and Puma that offer trendy athleisure. Buzzy eateries such as Hai Di Lao, FatPapas Burgers & Shakes and Saveur are also a must-try.
Our Tampines Hub for Families with Kids
Have you scheduled for an HDB completion appointment at the HDB Tampines Branch recently? If yes, you’ll realise that it is housed under Our Tampines Hub, a huge complex that encompasses a stadium, a sports hall, a swimming complex, a library, a mall, and several government agencies all in one. With these many activities available in such close proximity, there really is no better place to keep the whole family and the kids entertained. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, indulge at the mall with tasty treats from Hong Kong Sheng Kee Dessert, Commons, Qiji Express, Toasties – the list goes on. Get there by alighting from the Downtown line exit at Tampines MRT, take a right onto Tampines Central 2 (OCBC should be on your right) and you’ll be able to see Our Tampines Hub straight ahead.
Tampines 1 for Foodies
Barely a one-minute walk from Tampines MRT, Tampines 1 is a worthy shopping destination in its own right just like its hip counterparts. The mall boasts a diverse mix of retailers such as AW Lab and Sephora. Picky eaters can also rejoice at the wide range of popular dining options available such as 4Fingers, Blackball, Kuriya Japanese Market Yokocho, Streats Hong Kong Cafe, Sushi Tei – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
With so much to offer in terms of food, shopping, lifestyle, fitness, and recreational activities, it is no wonder that these shopping malls attract more than just the residents living on the East side. The effortless accessibility of these malls are also a major part of their appeal – they are all located within a 3-minute walk from Tampines MRT.
