In addition to exploring Singapore, I also blocked off a whole day to explore Changi International Airport. Frequently regarded as one of the best airports in the world, I was interested in it enough that I decided to devote a whole 12 hours to fully exploring it.
I arrived at Changi at midnight, and instead of leaving the airport, I stayed there at one of the hotels within the secure “sterile” area. Quite a nice luxury! My room was basic, but clean and quiet, and included access to the gym and rooftop swimming pool and bar. Decent amenities for an airport hotel room inside the airport!
One of the many quiet lounges to relax in – all with free super-fast wifi interent.
The rooftop cactus garden, with bar.
One of the many luxurious waiting areas, with spectacular views of the airplane operations.
Candy, free, at all info desks. All of the info desk people spoke great english.
Another one of the outdoor gardens, which was nice to wander through..
Should the free wifi kill your phone’s battery, there’s free, secure charging stands everywhere – including for the new iPhone5 Lightening connector!
The butterfly garden, with a ton of beautiful butterflies.
Any electronics you want can be bought at the airport.
Free, 24/7 movie theater.
The oh so relaxing indoor Bamboo Garden.
Serene Koi Pond
Of course there’s a rooftop Sunflower Garden.
Another smaller movie theater.
LAN Gaming Room
A little bit of home.. they have my favourite travel store, Flight001!
The lobby of one of the airport hotels.
And finally, the grand finish, the multi-story slide. Awesome!
