Serving 62 million travellers each year—with the aim of reaching 150 million by 2030 after the addition of the 1,000-acre Terminal 5—Singapore’s Changi Airport does not shy from the spotlight. Often making waves in the media due to an ever-changing list of improvements and new additions, these are five of the coolest things to tick off your list if you find yourself in Changi Airport.
Terminal 3 boasts some of the world’s most luxurious stores, but there is one that truly stands out amongst the high-end crowd. Set up like a stage set, the entrance boasts a rotating LED display of technicoloured lighting that stands at a grand six metres high and over 10 metres wide. Fashion enthusiasts won’t want to miss the archive on the second floor, which showcases museum-style images highlighting the brand’s history.
Located at Jewel Changi Airport, the recently opened Shaw Theatres houses Singapore’s first, next-generation IMAX hall which includes IMAX with Laser—the latest technology that captivates guests with a laser projection system and new and improved immersive sound technology.
You don’t even have to leave the airport to take a ride on Singapore’s tallest slide. And it just so happens that now, passengers can catch a joyride on the slide to get straight to their gate. Why build an escalator, when you can build a slide? Head to Terminal 3 to discover a 12-metre-tall slide that crosses four storeys. In order to access the slide, passengers must have spent a minimum of $10 within the airport that day, which unlocks a total of 10 joyrides.
What better way to pass the layover time than by soaking up some final holiday rays at a rooftop swimming pool? Whether you’re a guest of Singapore’s swanky transit hotel, Aerotel Singapore, or you’re willing to fork out the inexpensive entrance fee of US$12, this is sure to be one of the best layovers you’ve ever experienced. Top up your tan, cool off between flights and enjoy one of the most unique pool views in the world—a tarmac.
As if out of Avatar, the 1.3-billion-dollar Jewel mall is a multi-dimensional world of towering canopies and waterfalls. Standing tall in the centre is the captivating Rain Vortex, a spectacular 40-metre-tall wonder that has broken the record for the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. When night falls in the airport, the Rain Vortex even performs an eye-catching Light and Sound show.
