Well based on the maps shown that the Suntec Convention Center is easy to reach. Seen close to the green line where the path is the subway line from Changi International Airport. Then there is also the yellow line that even past the front of Suntec Conv Center. That yellow line is the bus line. The most comfortable way is indeed to ride a limousine taxi. 🙂
