Arrival at Singapore’s Changi International Airport

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!
