20 Things to Make Your Transit in Singapore Changi Airport Exciting

12:44:00 AM

When I was still in college back to 4 years ago, I had a chance to have a student visit to study about architecture in Singapore. One of the buildings was Changi Airport Terminal 3. It was that time just opened for 1 year. I spent almost a day discovering the features of Changi Airport which helped me know a lot more as I had to write the report paper afterwards for student’s task.

“That’s how I first arrived in Changi Airport”

Now, every time I land in Singapore, I always get excited because it feels like a whole new modern era is saying hello to me when I arrive in Changi. Changi Airport really has many things to see and do which make you will never be bored during your transit. Singapore is one of those countries in Southeast Asia which has an airport that offers so many connecting flights to other destinations. Especially passengers who want to go to European countries or America usually will have layover in Singapore. But if you have a connecting flight and have to spend several hours transit in Changi Airport.
