To help you find the best place to live in, we decided to create this Definitive Singapore Neighbourhood Guide series.

Where we lay out the facts of the neighbourhood and evaluate it as objectively as possible.

This guide will be particularly useful to you if you’re:

  • a prospective homeowner
  • a homeowner looking for a change of environment
  • an expatriate looking to settle down in Singapore

The first instalments took us to Punggol, Tanjong Pagar, Tiong Bahru, Tampines and Tengah.

This week, we’ll head to the end of the East-West line to Pasir Ris to see if east side is REALLY the best side.

Note: this will be particularly useful to prospective homeowners looking at the Pasir Ris latest May 2020 BTO launch (Update: May 2020 BTO launch has been deferred till further notice due to the COVID-19 outbreak).

Is Pasir Ris a Good Place to Live?

For this guide, we will be focusing on the Pasir Ris neighbourhood/planning area as demarcated by the boundaries in red.

Map of Pasir Ris
Source: Google Maps

The planning area spans over 15.02 square kilometres with 3.18 square kilometres set aside or residential purposes.

Up North of Pasir Ris, you will find the Johor Strait. Sengkang lies to the Southwest, Changi to the East and Punggol to the west.

It contains subzones:

  • Loyang West
  • Flora Drive
  • Pasir Ris West
  • Loyang East
  • Pasir Ris Drive
  • Pasir Ris Central
  • Pasir Ris Park
  • Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park

What Makes Pasir Ris Special?

The first mention of the village of Pasir Ris or the more atas (Malay for high brow) sounding Passier Rice went back as early as the 1800s.

Back then, Pasir Ris was a low lying area with many kampongs and plantation estates.

The development of Pasir Ris Town only really began in 1983, with seven neighbourhoods (N1 – N7) built thereafter.

Pasir Ris Etymology

The name Pasir Ris in Malay loosely translates to ‘white sand.’

Interestingly, the second part of the name Ris in Malay also means ‘bolt rope’ – the rope sewn at the edges of sails to reinforce them. Pretty apt for a seaside town.

Today, the neighbourhood is known as Pasir Ris Town, named for its sandy white beaches found on the northeast coastline of Singapore facing Pulau Ubin.

1) Personality and Charm of Pasir Ris Town (4/5)

Having grown up in Tampines, one of the fondest memories from my childhood were the weekly family picnics we had at Pasir Ris Park.

My family would pack Nasi Lemak, Otah and drinks in our basket before heading to the sandy white beaches to swim or just chill on the picnic mat and watch the waves splashing on the shore.

This is part of the town’s relaxing charm and its resort-like ambience.

What I like about its architecture and identity is that it is inspired by the surrounding beach and sea elements.

Although Pasir Ris may not be as lively or busy as the city, it is exactly that laidback charm which is loved by both visitors and residents.

The neighbourhood is great for those who are looking for a more suburban lifestyle as the area is known for its nature walks, the Sungei Api Api river, beaches and slightly slower pace of life.

Thus with its slower pace of life, relaxing charm, resort-like ambience no lack of modern amenities — Pasir Ris Town is deserving of a 4/5 score.

2) Affordability: Pasir Ris Median Resale Flats Price (3/5)

hdb logo

We’ll be using the median price of HDB resale flats during the first quarter of 2020 as a benchmark.

We have chosen this statistic as a measure of affordability as the median resale flat price provides a good indicator of the average price of housing in the area.

Although Pasir Ris is a mature housing estate with great recreational amenities, houses there are surprisingly still relatively affordable.

148,020 residents call Pasir Ris town, home while the biggest group of residents living there are aged between 50 – 59 years old.

Apartments found in Pasir Ris are rather large with the executive apartments typically are (2000 sq ft) in size.

Pasir Ris Resale Flats Median Price 2020 Q4

We have included data from the most expensive areas and most affordable neighbourhoods.

Town3-Room4-Room5-Room Executive
Woodlands$263,000$340,000$405,000$578,000
Bukit Merah$325,000$640,000$817,500
-
Tampines$320,000$422,500$535,000$680,000
Pasir Ris*$435,500$495,000$608,300

(-) indicates no resale transactions in the quarter

(” * “) refer to cases where there are less than 20 resale transactions in the quarter for the particular town and flat type.

If you look at the data, Pasir Ris flats lie in between more expensive neighbours like Bukit Merah and more affordable neighbourhoods like Woodlands.

Prices are also quite similar to the flats found in Tampines.

This downgrades their affordability rating to a middle of the road 3/5.

3) Accessibility: How Accessible is Pasir Ris by Public Transport and Private Transport (2/5)

In terms of transportation, Pasir Ris’ position at the end of the East West line (EWL) and distance from the Central Business District (CBD) makes it one of the less convenient places in Singapore (read: ulu).

A) Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Stations Near Pasir Ris

Currently, there is only the EWL that ends at Pasir Ris MRT station (EW1/CR5/CP1). The good thing about this is that you’ll always have seats on the MRT.

In terms of connectivity, Pasir Ris MRT is about 35 minutes away from Raffles Place MRT station (EW14/NS26) which grants easy access to the North-South Line.

You can also scoot over to Tampines MRT (EW2/DT32) to access areas like Bencoolen MRT Station (DT21) Marina Bay via Downtown MRT Station (DT17) via the Downtown Line.

However, this situation is set to change in the future.

In 2023, there will be a new railway turnback built. This will allow for quicker turnaround of trains at Pasir Ris MRT station which will cut down waiting time on the platform.

Six years later in 2029, this station is set to become an interchange within the Cross Island line with two other MRT stations — Pasir Ris East (CR4) and Loyang (CR3) next to it.

Two years down the road in 2031, this station is set to become the terminating station for the future extension to Punggol MRT station on the Cross Island line.

B) Pasir Ris Interchange

Pasir Ris’ large geographical area and its neighbourhoods are well served by the buses that gather at Pasir Ris Bus Interchange.

Pasir Ris Public Transport Commute to Work Areas

Here is an estimation of how long it will take to get to the main work areas in Singapore from Pasir Ris by public transport:

CBD:

45 – 50 minutes

Changi Business Park:

35 – 45 minutes

One North Buona Vista:

60 – 75 minutes

Jurong International Business Park:

80 – 85 minutes

Tuas:

140 minutes

Unfortunately, getting around Singapore from Pasir Ris will test your patience.

Even Changi Business Park which is relatively near is still about 35 minutes away.

They can head onto the:

  • Tampines Expressway (TPE) via Loyang Avenue to head North-East
  • Pan Island Expressway (PIE) via the TPE to head to town and further West.

Here is an estimation of how long it will take to get to the main work areas in Singapore from Pasir Ris by car accounting for traffic:

CBD:

30 – 55 minutes

Changi Business Park:

10 – 30 minutes

One North Buona Vista:

35 – 60 minutes

Jurong International Business Park:

40 – 60 minutes

Tuas:

55 – 80 minutes

D) Overall Accessibility in Pasir Ris

In terms of convenience by public transport or private transport, Pasir Ris connectivity is poor for Singapore. This is due to its far east location.

Comparatively, even though Tampines is nearby, it is better connected with the Downtown line.

This is one of the downsides relaxing charm and its resort-like ambience.

I would give the Pasir Ris’ neighbourhood an accessibility score of 2/5 because of this.

4) Schools in Pasir Ris (3/5)

There are 7 primary schools, 4 secondary schools, 1 international school, and 1 tertiary institution in Pasir Ris.

The neighbourhood is home to reputable schools like Hai Sing Catholic, Elias Park Primary School and Tampines Meridian Junior College.

There’s even an International school there.
