What people say

"When you enter Singapore's airport, there will be signposts everywhere that lead you to the so called "Jewel", a really special area at Terminal 1 that cannot be compared to any other airport in the world. Whatever you can imagine, the "Jewel" has it all: besides shops and restaurants of every kind, the highlight of the Jewel clearly is the indoor waterfall in the middle of the building, with it's impressing height of 40 meters. And for all the action-fans out there, the Jewel also includes a bridge above the highest foor and also a skytrain between the terminals which leads you really near past the waterfall. You even have access to a climbing crag, where you can let go of your energy after or before your flight. But be aware, that you have to pay for the bridge, as well as for the climbing crag, while the skytrain access is free. "
"Visiting an airport may not be your typical tourist spot, but Jewel Changi is not your average airport. It has been voted as one of the best airports in our Readers' Choice Awards for a reason! Designed by architect Moshe Safdie, this transportation hub is a unique blend of shopping, dining, and entertainment all with a nature theme. You can marvel at the stunning Rain Vortex, a seven-story indoor waterfall, explore an indoor forest with suspended walkways, and shop at almost 300 stores. It's a must-visit for travelers with layovers, and many airlines even allow you to check in a full 24 hours in advance just to spend more time enjoying all that Jewel Changi has to offer. Trust me, it's definitely worth a visit!"
"Once you've arrive at Terminal 3, Use the SkyTrain to go to Jewel (Terminal 2) You get to see the water vortex in close up! If you plan on staying till late night, the light and sound show is available daily between 7.30pm and 11.30pm, at hourly intervals. (ofc you can also watch the light and sound show before your departure from Singapore..that is if your flight is late at night.) Don't forget to keep up with the promotions and discounts from their website. "
