On my way back to Cebu from Sydney Australia, I had to stop over Singapore and wait for my next flight. I was stuck in Singapore (Changi Airport) for 8 hours! It was excruciatingly long and the thought of being stuck in the airport for a long time was dreadful.  Good thing was that you can do a lot of stuff in Changi and it's so easy to get lost in time.  Bringing along your kids?  No worries... they also have a lot of kid-friendly activities and areas to pass through time.  Read my previous post here


So, what do you do when you have a lot of time to spare and nowhere else to go but inside the airport?


PAMPER YOURSELF WITH A FOOT AND CALF MASSAGE
Tired of endless walking?  Pamper your feet with that much needed rest with the airport's free foot and calf massage.

TAKE UNLIMITED PICTURES AT THE ENCHANTED GARDEN





ENDLESS WINDOW SHOPPING
This is pure heaven for those who breaths and lives to shop especially of money is not an issue for you.  You can also do your last-minute "pasalubong" shopping or simply browse through the stores. Well, for me, I simply ogled through most of the expensive-looking shops.

However, if you transit at Changi Airport, you'll get to receive as much as $40 voucher which you get to use to buy at participating stores at the airport.  I was not able to claim my $20 voucher on my way to Sydney since my connecting flight schedule was pretty tight.  Using the $20 voucher, I bought L'Oreal Paris Lucent Magique BB Cream for $19.  How cool was that?

TAKE IT EASY AT THE CACTUS GARDEN
Feast your eyes on a variety of cactus species on this amazing roof garden. This also serves as a smoking area.  This is also a perfect place to sit back and enjoy the view while drinking your cup of coffee.

The Cactus Garden can be found at Terminal 1 - Departure Transit Lounge, Level 3, Transit Area


HAVE FUN AT THE KOI POND
I'm not a huge fan of Koi fishes but when you have all the time in the world, you'll find it interesting.  After all, it's picture perfect :)

SIT BACK AND RECHARGE AT THEIR REST AREAS
You'll find them scattered all over Terminals 1,2, and 3. You'll find them here:

Terminal 1
Snooze Lounge, Transit East, Level 3, Transit Area

Terminal 2
  • Sanctuary Lounge, Transit North Pier, opp E5, Transit Area
  • Oasis Lounge, Transit North Pier, Opp E11, Transit Area
Terminal 3
Snooze Lounge, Transit North Mezzanine, near to Singapore Food Street, Transit Area

STAY CONNECTED AT THEIR INTERNET KIOSKS AND FREE WIFI
Update your social media status or simply send your loved ones a quick message through the airport's internet kiosks.  They have more than 550 internet stations all over Terminals 1,2,3. Simply check out the airport maps to find out where they are located and how to get there.

If you find them already in use, you don't need to worry since they have free Wi-fi everywhere.



Other things you can do include relaxing at the Butterfly Garden, have a pleasant time at the Sunflower Garden, explore the Social Tree, and visit the Aviation Gallery

  1. I certainly had no idea they offered free massages. At least if ever the flight is delayed there's lots to do to kill time.

  2. I love activities that can be enjoyable yet cost you nothing in the monetary sense. I've heard a lot of good reviews about the Changi Airport in SG, I just hope that our own airport in Manila improves as well.

  4. Great tips on how to burn time at the airport! This way, people in Singapore can come early and just relax here while waiting for their flight. It's also great for people with connecting flights! Can they access all these as well?

  16. I heard so much about Changi airport and reading this post makes me feel bad all the more about our airport in the Philippines where we can do nothing but sit while waiting for our flight. No wonder, it's always called the worst airport in the world. :(

  20. Wow I wish we had such facilities at our airport because usually flights get delayed for long hours due to bad weather conditions usually.

  21. It always make me happy to hear positive travellers' experience at Changi Airport. OUr government has spent a lot to develop the facility, so Changi would be a desirable hub for travellers. Thanks for the positive post!

    Best, Ling

  23. If you have a little more time, say, 6 hours., you can also take a city tout into the city centre. If you are on a sq flight, I think the transit tour Free, too!

  24. If you are there over 6 hours on a layover, check out the transit tours too! You get to visit the city centre, and it's free for sq passengers previously too.
