Singapore’s Changi Airport has been ranked as the #1 airport amongst travellers and the aviation industry for years. Which airport in the world has its own swimming pool, 24/7 spas, a movie theatre and after all provides a smooth and easy process to your gate? Changi does.
The government of Singapore has been pushing for an extension of Changi Airport as part of its social-economic agenda to secure the top rank amongst the aviation industry. After all, Changi is one of the most popular hubs for international travellers, especially those travelling from the west to the east and vice versa. With an annual contingent of more than 65 million passengers, Changi airport is the world’s busiest airport in the world both in terms of civilian aviation as well as in terms of cargo flights.
Changi Jewel will expand the airport and connects several terminals
Changi Jewel is a mixed use-development, mainly serving as a interconnecting building at Changi Airport to connect terminals 1, 2 and 3 with an air-conditioned pedestrian bridge. An airport of its first kind, Changi transforms the “traditional” airport experience with new elements that aim to bring entertainment, nature, shopping and dining under a new flagship banner.
Which airport has an indoor waterfall?
The most attractive part is the Shiseido Forest Valley with the Rain Vortex, the world’s largest indoor waterfall. The complex offers beautiful walks and trails that allows travellers to recharge and to escape from the stressful flights. It’s opened 24/7 and is accessible to the public. Allow yourself at least 30mins to enjoy the atmosphere and wander around.
10-storey high, 300 facilities, indoor parks, and more
Changi Jewel offers visitors more than 300 facilities, including one of Southeast Asia’s largest Nike stores, Singapore’s second Apple Store as well as other brands such as Marks & Spencer and Zara. Indoor attractions such as Canopy Park or the Hedge Maze offer a truly unique new airport experience both to travellers as well as to visitors.
