We're travelers here. Tourists can be found on that other board.

Singapore airport

Post by harry_flashman » Mon Jul 30, 2018 4:05 pm

First time I have ever transitted for a night but it lives up to the hype. A bit like an air travellers Disneyland.

Agree. Only been once but I remember hanging around for about an hour just looking around, even though Singapore was my destination.

It's a longtime goal to eat at the staff canteen there:

Marvellous place. We were particularly taken by the rooftop heliotrope garden. That level of perfection must be a full time job for somebody. It’s inspired.

The LCC terminal would put most full-service terminals to shame too.

oh glimpie. we seem to have something in common :o :lol: :lol:


ah, SIN. i have visited god knows how many times. 'tis a nice flughafen and aerogare. lots to do and see. i have spent many a night there - just wandering around, eating (many eateries are open 24/7), or staying for a few hours in the transit hotel (whether i was in-transit or not). i have spent many a day there too - visiting as many airline lounges as i can. but, no, glimpie, i will admit to never having sucked a fag at changi. i have my standards, ya know.

my fave terminal is T3, where SQ/singapore airlines has most of its flights. T3 is bright, spacious and has a ton of things to keep your mind occupied. i always stop at PAUL - yes, the french bakery. i always hang out in the SQ silver kris lounge. there is good food to be had there. but, then there is good food to be had anywhere in changi. and, the food is so damn cheap ... so much so that i don't feel guilty buying dish after dish after dish.

so, yes, SIN is a great airport now. but come next year, the JEWEL will open. methinks this place will knock your socks off. of course you will want to check-in 5 hours early so that you can have time to hang out at the JEWEL.





but, then, there's more...............

changi is getting a TERMINAL 5. this is going to be a MEGA terminal. super MEGA! the completion date is 2030.

If you have time, leave the airport and go to Lau Pa Sat.

is harry one of the stew homos too??

Edit; Oh, I see cummy beat me to it..


anyhow, a nights sleep in the departures area terminal hotel brings sanity to an aus-uk trip.. fly daytime aus to sin, then daytime again sin-UK after a good nights sleep, beats jetlag.

same coming back, leave UK in the evening get to singapore next evening, sleep the sleep of the dead, leave singapore next morning, get home that night.

I didn't enjoy it at all. I had a blister and had to walk miles along a roundabout route guided through shops selling nothing I wanted to buy.
