Things to do at Changi airport (Singapore)

 

Singapore Changi airport

Layover is usually the most boring aspect of travel. I recently had a trip to Thailand and had a layover at Changi airport in Singapore. I was dreading and almost cursing myself for booking a flight with 10 hours of layover. If you travel often, you would know 10 hours is a long time to kill at an airport.

And then we landed at Changi. Firstly the airport is huge with 3 terminals which is connected by a shuttle train. Yes, a train specially to travel between the terminals. Now most of the airports do have shopping options to kill your time. However, at Changi they sure do entertain in various ways. Each terminal is different with unique themed gardens, lounging areas, snooze areas, fun zone, pool to soak in, theater, game zone, and some more crazy tech experiences.

At the end of my trip I wanted to spend more time at the airport and experience it all.
