A first in Southeast Asia to use upcycled buses as guest rooms, The Changi Bus Resort will use 20 decommissioned public buses to create a vibrant and homey stay for guests. 

Parked next to Changi Village Hawker Centre, The Changi Bus Resort sprawls over 8,600 square metres of land. It features upcycled public buses bought from public transport provider SBS. From what we know, each room will come with a barbecue pit, yoga, pilates, and other wellness programs, paving the way to making Singapore a more eco-friendly tourist destination. 

After all, it’s been promised that the project will have a limited effect on the ecosystem. Likewise, the development of The Changi Bus Resort is veering away from uprooting any mature trees surrounding the site. 

While we are still some way off from seeing the completed project, the groundbreaking ceremony was held on 28 Aug 2022. It was officiated by Maliki Osman, Second Minister for Education & Foreign Affairs.
