They say that vacation does not just start when you get to the destination itself but the whole journey, right from when you step inside the airport and even on the plane. Indeed, oftentimes what makes our trips more memorable is how we were able to enjoy our time in the actual journey. And few countries in the world can boast to have an airport that can rightfully claim to be a destination in its own right as Singapore Changi Airport. Changi has been constantly awarded as the best airport in the world and has endeared itself to travelers. Whether you’re on a business trip, traveling with family, or simply on a leisure trip, no matter your preference or needs as a traveler, Changi has it all for you.

Here are just 8 of the many things to do and enjoy in Changi Airport:


With over 400 retail and service stores, you can enjoy a whole lot of shopping in Changi. Spread out across its four sprawling terminals, you will never run out of things to enjoy splurging on. And the best thing about it is that it is all Duty-Free! What’s more, Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passengers can get additional privileges simply by presenting their boarding pass at participating establishments. If you are transiting in Singapore, add to your spending power with the SGD20 Changi Dollar Voucher, which you can use on anything – from shopping, dining, or even airport lounge access.


See More of Singapore

Whether you are visiting Singapore or just stopping over on your way to your destination, you can enjoy the sights and sounds of this vibrant multicultural country with some incredible offers exclusive to Singapore Airlines and SilkAir passengers.

With a minimum of 5.5 hours transit time, you can book the Free Singapore Tour, which would take you around different Singapore attractions within2.5 hour, before your flight.  If you have a longer transit time, you can also  book the Singapore Stopover Holiday inclusive of a hotel stay, unlimited SIA hop-on bus, and admissions to more than 15 attractions. Or if Singapore is your final destination, you can enjoy access to over 19 attractions with the Singapore Explorer Pass.


Stay at an Airport Hotel

Some connecting flights will require you to stay overnight at your layover terminal. Changi offers  hotels  within the airport without having to go through immigration so that you can rest peacefully and without fuss. Choose between the Aerotel (T1) or the Ambassador transit hotels (T2, T3), since all three terminals are easily connected via skytrains.


Go on a Nature Trail

Giving a fresh and innovative approach in ways that people experience airports, Changi offers visitors different nature attractions. You can visit the Sunflower Garden at Terminal 2, gaze at butterflies in the Butterfly Garden at Terminal 3, or go outdoors and visit the Sculptural Garden and Water Lily Garden at Terminal 1.
