They say that vacation does not just start when you get to the destination itself but the whole journey, right from when you step inside the airport and even on the plane. Indeed, oftentimes what makes our trips more memorable is how we were able to enjoy our time in the actual journey. And few countries in the world can boast to have an airport that can rightfully claim to be a destination in its own right as Singapore Changi Airport. Changi has been constantly awarded as the best airport in the world and has endeared itself to travelers. Whether you’re on a business trip, traveling with family, or simply on a leisure trip, no matter your preference or needs as a traveler, Changi has it all for you.
Here are just 8 of the many things to do and enjoy in Changi Airport:
With over 400 retail and service stores, you can enjoy a whole lot of shopping in Changi. Spread out across its four sprawling terminals, you will never run out of things to enjoy splurging on. And the best thing about it is that it is all Duty-Free! What’s more, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passengers can get additional privileges simply by presenting their boarding pass at participating establishments. If you are transiting in Singapore, add to your spending power with the SGD20 Changi Dollar Voucher, which you can use on anything – from shopping, dining, or even airport lounge access.

Stay at an Airport Hotel
Some connecting flights will require you to stay overnight at your layover terminal. Changi offers hotels within the airport without having to go through immigration so that you can rest peacefully and without fuss. Choose between the Aerotel (T1) or the Ambassador transit hotels (T2, T3), since all three terminals are easily connected via skytrains.
Go on a Nature Trail
Giving a fresh and innovative approach in ways that people experience airports, Changi offers visitors different nature attractions. You can visit the Sunflower Garden at Terminal 2, gaze at butterflies in the Butterfly Garden at Terminal 3, or go outdoors and visit the Sculptural Garden and Water Lily Garden at Terminal 1.
Watch a Movie
With all these amenities, you wonder what else Changi can offer to make for an even better experience. How about free movies? Or maybe free video game plays? Or if you want to relax with entertainment by your lonesome self, try the lounge seats, each with their own built-in speakers. You can find all these and more at Changi’s Entertainment Decks.
Catch Some Snooze
Catch up on some zzz’s with Changi’s numerous snooze lounges spread out across all four terminals. You can also check out some massage chairs nearby to relax your tired feet.
Make Your Tummy Happy
Changi offers incredible variety of cuisine via 140 different restaurants and food kiosks. Whether you’re craving fastfood or an indulgent fare, you will never run out of choices to make your tummy very happy.
Take a Dip in a Pool
Not just a pool—a pool with a jacuzzi. Not enough for you? How about a bar? And shower facilities. Just be careful not to enjoy yourself too much that you forget you are at an airport and miss your flight. Of course if you did, it won’t be a problem getting stuck here! Clearly, whoever quipped ‘it’s better to travel than to arrive’ has never been to Changi.
