  • Good place for studying

    Ok Changi Airport is so comfortable that students actually camp there to study when exams are round the corner. Been there done that.

    The skytrain shuttles passengers from one terminal to another (T1, T2, T3, excluding budget terminal where you have to take shuttle buses) so it's really convenient. There's lots to see, not like the big but boring KLIA.

    If you're a backpacker or do not have large pieces of luggage, you can take the MRT/subway/metro/whateveryoucallit from the airport itself. It'll cost less than SGD2 to get to anywhere.

    Easiest Transit Ever

    by 43beckos Written Mar 14, 2008

    Once spent 8 hours in transit at Changi which just flew by. After we had an anti jet lag massage in one of the lounges ( which included a shower so we could freshen up ) we then went and spent some time at the rooftop pool which had a bar, restaurant and really comfortable sun loungers, and again you could have a shower in the changing facilities at the pool so you were refreshed for your onbound flight, just remember to pack your trunks in your hand luggage.

    I also believe that if you have a stopover longer than 3 hours there is a free city tour you can take advantage of.

    Rideshare from Airport to hotels

    by DarleneCMF Written Apr 5, 2007

    You can opt to share a ride with other passengers from Changi Airport to hotels in Singapore. The fee is SGD 7 per person, which is relatively cheap. Arrange for a ride at the counter just outside the luggage claim area. Maximum waiting time is 30 minutes. The van can accommodate 7 people comfortably.

    Changi airport I will give 5 stars in accomodating their guests at the airport. You can watch live football or CNN at the sky theatre. Surf internet or play games at PS 2 stations for FREE. Shoppings for gifts and electronic items at good price. Really great airport!

    I love this airport. I think its the best in the world and Anthony Bourdain loves it too. It has everything that other airports have, but I think the best part is the free movie theater. Every terminal has a theater and its a great way to kill time and don't worry about missing a flight there is a big red digital clock on the wall to remind you what time it is.

    Changi Airport lived up to its reputation as modern and efficient, especially its link to the MRT subway system. Definitely one of the best airports in the world.

    If you have an early morning flight like I did, you can sleep at the airport---the chairs are uncomfortable though, try the floor or a booth at one of the airport eateries.

    Budget Terminal

    Budget Terminal in Changi Airport is not as big as the main terminal. They use this terminal for cheap flights from other countries. Cebu Pacific from the Philippines is one of them. It's still very nice and clean. You can roam around their duty free shops and use the free internet provided by the airport. You can also have a quick bite while waiting for your flight.

    Singapores Changi airport is one of my favorite airports in this world. Lot´s of space there and few lines and free wifi as long as you sign up at the information counter. This is an extremely efficient airport to travel to and from and there is excellent public transportation to and from the airport too.

    Changi: From Terminal to terminal via sky train...

    by ullfri49 Updated Jul 19, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Terminal II to the new terminal III it is going easy with sky train.
    If you via transit it is a good moment to see a little of Singapore on the way-
    see the photo.

    By the way sometimes the time tables in the Terminals shows usually not all flights - I mean not chronologic. See here the photo at in May 2015 at late evening at terminal III:
    The flight SQ 26 goes to N.Y. via Frankfurt- if wait for a while this will be shown (inclusive the other Star alliance flights) at the table but not at same time. So simply wait a minute if the table changes. But it can be a little stress if to less time!

    New: In Mai 2015 are some information counters for to help the travelers .

    Dont hesitate to check the Changi internet side in before- it is easy to find at the SIA side the Changi Airport Guide for Arrival/Transit /Departing.

    If a little time, it is nice to take a reast at the Orchid garden and the Koi pond- see the photos.

    A msot efficient airport with good looking Malays

    Changi is an exceptional airport. While KLIA likes to beat its own chest saying it is the best, it has about half a century before it woudl catch up with Changi for its efficiency. I asked a chinese friend of mine why is that most of the immigration and service personnel at Changi or either Indian or malay, her answer was: they are better looking!

    Horrible Food at Changi Airport

    by cochinjew Written Apr 19, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One thing KLIA has got one over Changi is that the food at KLIA is miles better than the food at Changi which borders on the inedible. Few days ago I ordered a Nasi Lemak and Teh Tahrek and both were bordering on garbage.. unless it is absolutely necessary eat somewhere else.. or eat before you come
    i have always eaten better in Malaysia than in Singapore, a much more pleasant experience, on my various visits to this region

    Singapore Changi Airport (SIN)

    by ATXtraveler Written Mar 4, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Singapore's Changi Airport is a busy little port for such a small country! SIN is the major hub for Singapore Airlines, a member of the Star Alliance. It is also home to many flights for British Airways and Qantas, so there are plenty of OneWorld Alliance options as well.

    Singapore as a whole is regarded as a little east meets west, so I am positive you will have no trouble navigating this airport. I have been through it several times now for business and pleasure, and each time was relatively painless!

    Changi Airport is not the biggest but the most beautiful airport in the world. U can shop, eat, hang around, pass time. There are so many things to do that you won't feel boared during the waiting period. They also provide free internet service for the passengers.

    A huge, efficient airport with plenty to do.
    I had to go thru on 3 occasions, but didnt feel the drag.
    Changi has often been voted as the best airport in the world, by different travel magazines and other associations.
    Work started on this airport way back in 1975, and it commenced operations in 1981. Its been several phases of additions and upgradations to what constitutes the structure that stands now...
