Changi Village, as the name suggests, used to be a quaint little village. In the past, it served as the docking place for fishing boats returning from fishing ground in the South China Sea. It was also the place where British Airforce personnel from the nearby Changi airbase restock their provisions. Then, the last crucial role that Changi Village was also a jetty for boats setting off for nearby islands like Pulau Ubin and places in mainland Malaysia like Penggarang.
Come to think of it, the Changi Village of today has not changed its many of its roles. In the 21st Century, Changi Village continues to play the above 3 roles. In fact, 2 more have been added to it. The first of the 2 is that it is now a famous food paradise for Singaporeans. Among the well-known food items are the Carrot Cake, the Nasi Lemak (particularly the stall named International), the Bittergourd Hor Fun, the Satay Bee Hoon and the Sliced-Chicken Noodles. The next new role that Changi Village plays in the 21st Century is that the village has become an important pokestop for Pokemon fans (Please refer to video).
