Changi Airport has come a long way. Over the decades, it has grown to be more than just an airport — it’s also a lifestyle haunt. Boasting state-of-the-art technology, local and international art installations, special events, plenty of dining options and shopping options and pockets of lush greenery throughout the terminals, it’s no surprise that Changi Airport is now a favourite destination among locals and tourists alike.
Now, like a literal crowning gem, the gleaming Jewel Changi Airport is ready to receive her first visitors when it officially opens on April 17. Comprising both marketplace and urban park, visitors can experience a multi-faceted journey that seamlessly integrates dining, retail, service, accommodation and entertainment services.
Weaving through the 10 floors and 280 shops will be quite an experience in itself, with attractions such as the majestic Rain Vortex, lush Shiseido Forest Valley, and a sprawling Canopy Park housed under a striking glass and steel dome. But just as exciting, are the many brands making their inaugural appearances in the complex.
We highlight a few of the many “firsts”.
