Our last hours on our Singapore Trip were spent at the Singapore Changi Airport. We didn’t have to fly until the afternoon but since the airport is a destination within itself we thought we would spend our remaining time here. This airport is consistently ranked as one of the best airports in the world. So whether your passing through or have a spare few hours before your flight you will have plenty to do here.
The Changi Airport has four Terminals, which can easily be travelled between using the monorail. Each terminal has its own dining area, entertainment, displays and shopping. If you prefer stay put in you terminal or want to explore another, it is easy to see what is available in the terminals by using the maps or online directories: Facilities & Services directory; Dining directory. You definitely can’t go hungry with the amount of food vendors in each terminal. You also won’t be bored with the amazing gardens, displays cinemas, playgrounds and other entertainments on offer.
We spent most of our time this visit in Terminal 1 & 2, so this is just a snap shot of what is available at the Changi Airport. If you know your going to be here for a least 2 hours or more its worth checking out what interests you on the website, otherwise just wonder around and enjoy the sites. If you have at least 5.5 hours, do check out the Free Singapore Tour.
