There is a reason why Changi has been awarded the title of ‘Best Airport in the World'. The facilities and services mirror those of a luxury resort and the game of waiting is turned into a pleasurable experience.

The Basics; The Sky trains will get you around the three terminal airport and there is usually an under 5 minute wait to make the short journey between terminals. The trains operate between 5:00am and 2:30am and a shuttle bus substitutes when the trains are not in operation.

There is free Wi-Fi for all the internet enthusiasts and business travellers looking to continue their work between flights. You can use your own equipment or use one of the many internet stations dotted throughout the lounges.

With over 300 retail stores, last minute gifts, holiday essentials, tax free indulgences and designer labels are all under one roof waiting to be explored (and purchased).

The powder rooms come with a seating area and ‘dressing' tables where you can freshen up and get ready for the next phase of your vacation. If you would like to take freshening up a step further, there are hair and beauty services where you can try out a new look or enjoy any of your favourite beauty treatments.

There are also baby care rooms where mothers can tend to the needs of their young children in peace and privacy. Equipped with the usual baby changing facilities and hot water dispensers.

There is also a smoking area for those who require it.

The Experiences; If you are lucky enough to have a 5 hour overlay between flights then you have the option of enjoying a complimentary two hour tour around Singapore. Depending on the time of your transit you can take a Heritage tour (between 9am - 6pm) or a City Lights Tour (between 6:30pm - 8:30pm). What a perfect way to stop and say hello to the city as you're passing through.

The airport gardens provide the means to stretch your legs before or after a flight. There are 5 differently themed gardens to be explored; Cactus, Sunflower, Orchid, Fern and Butterfly and a couple of Koi ponds for your browsing.

The fitness enthusiast will be relieved to discover the health and gym suite and swimming pool available to use. After a gruelling workout, a spa visit or massage might just be the cherry on top before a relaxing flight out of Singapore.

Because the terminals are available to both arrivals and departures Changi is the ideal start or end to your vacation and is the perfect gateway to Singapore.
