Singapore Changi Airport ranked first in the World’s Best Airports for this year according to the The World Airports Award and without a doubt it is the best airport a traveller would like to get stranded to or pass a layover.
I, for one, would not mind having my flight delayed if I am at this airport as there are many things to see, to do, to eat and to buy at Changi Airport. It is also very convenient for parents like me who has been traveling with a kid, and now, with a baby in tow.
I am listing here the 7 Things I Love with Changi Airport:
There are diaper changing stations in every terminal with amenities that every mommy would surely appreciate like hot water, paper towels, and a vendo machine for disposable diapers. There are also comfortable nursing rooms for breastfeeding moms like me.
Every terminal has a playground. The play areas are free, clean and safe for children’s enjoyment. But the real treat for kids? The Slide at Terminal 3! The Slide stands at four storeys tall and declared the world’s tallest slide inside an airport.
3. ATTRACTIVELY GREEN
This airport is an environment ally. There are recycling bins placed in strategic locations inside the airport and it is the only airport that abounds with indoor nature trails and attractions like the Sunflower Garden, Butterfly Garden and the Koi Pond, among others.
