From Terminal 2 to the new terminal 3 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 mostly the time tables in the Terminals shows usually not all flights (i saw it april 2012) - not chronologic all flights from Changi - it seems it is shown casue of not enought place only the flights from the terminal where you just are. For all must for instance in Terminal III to the central tableau for to find out all.
Same at way back- when I arrived at the terminal III is was not shure and asked...
It is a little difficult, cause at my flight ticket from Leipzig (Star alliance connection) via Frankfurt (with Singapore Airlines via Singapore to Jakarta) was when starting from Leipzig only printed the time-but not the gate and Terminal.
But at least all was quite fine and even time to take a rest before the next start!
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.
If you have a lot of time to wait around at Chang Airport, have a look on Changi Airport's website. They have designated napping areas per the link below and load of suggestions for other things to do to fill in your time:
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.
I only spent a hour here each way on my flight to and from Bali. What little time I did have here was relaxing and a welcome break in the flight. The airport design is stunning and the place is so clean and spacious. I don't normally enjoy my time in airports, but I wouldn't have minded a bit longer here to explore it.
This Ultra Modern Hub of Singapore was the former Largest Airport in Asia but is now Overtaken by the Modern Beijing Airport and the Dubai International Airport in Sheer Size that it is the third largest Airport in the World. The Airport is located about 20km (13 miles) northeast of the Downtown Singapore. Besides being the Main Hub of Flag carrier Singapore Airlines, it is also the maind hubs of Singapore Airlines Cargo, SilkAir, Tiger Airways, Jetstar Asia Airways, Valuair, and Jett8 Airlines Cargo. It is a hub for Garuda Indonesia and a secondary hub for Qantas, which uses Singapore as the main stopover point for flights on the Kangaroo Route between Australia and Europe. Changi Airport currently has five terminals. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 are directly connected with a common transit area and has it's own budget air carrier Terminal for Budget Carriers. Inside the terminal are expansive areas for dining, duty free shopping, shops, spas and other modern conveniences.
From the airport, u could take the MRT train to town. the station is located in Terminal 2.
alternatively u could also take bus number 36 at the basement of either terminal 1 or 2 to go to town.
the fare is 1.5 - 2 sing dollars.
Wish to travel from a MRT station to the Changi Budget Terminal?
1. Take the MRT to Changi Airport using the green line. E.g. from Lavendar MRT it costs SGD3.00 approx (Dec 2010)
2. When on the green line - you may not necessarily be on the train heading directly to Changi as there is a "fork" in Tanah Merah splitting between Pasir Mas and Changi. Tip: get off at Tanah Merah and board the "middle platform" (there are 3 platforms at Tanah Merah).
3. When you arrive at Changi - this is not yet the budget terminal. Align from the MRT that terminates at Changi and look out for the signs that read "Bus/Shuttle to Budget Terminal". Tip: Get your SGD1.00 refund if you are using the MRT temporary ticket/card. You can do this at the ticket machines.
4. Keep your eyes peeled for the signs that say "Bus/Shuttle to Budget Terminal". You will go through several corridors and arrive at an underground bus terminal. There will be many buses ready to take you to different parts of Singapore including the budget terminal. This can be confusing. Either ask around or look up at the roof or top of the supporting pillars with yellow signs. Look for the sign that says "Budget Terminal". The buses should appear every 10-15 minutes. It also takes you 10-15 minutes to get you to the budget terminal. There is no charge when taking the shuttle bus and it is FREE.
Good luck :)
P/S Last Tip: Once you have cleared immigration at the budget terminal - there are still many Food & Beverage outlets including plenty of retail outlets before you reach your Flight Gates. You can hang out here in comfort while waiting to board your flight

Bus Shuttle Service from Singapore's Changi Ariport to the downtown costs only 8-10 SGD. Its a cheaper option to get to your hotel. You get bus tickets at the airport itself. These bus operators knows all the hotels in Singapore. All you need to do is tell them your hotel name and they will drop you at the doorsteps of the hotel. The only hind side is that you may have to wait till the bus comes. Maximum for half an hour....If you are lucky you also get it within 5mins. They have a periodic departures. You can enquire at the counter for the next schedulled departure
PS: Enquire at the airport and they will help you where the bus shuttle service counter is. It is towards the exit of the airport....Better ask someone......
