Hi all,

Have another trip to Europe coming up in September and both ways have just about 4 hours transit in Singapore. Have been through Changi a few times so am looking for suggestions how to spend the hours. Went swimming and relaxed by the pool last time. Am flying business class so can always go lounge hopping but am looking for other thrills. Let me have your input.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

If I remember correctly, if you have 4 or more hours you can take advantage of the free tour of Singapore. Otherwise a good book, plane spotting or coffee by the piano.

Been in Singapore too many time. Am looking for something new and exciting to do in the airport. Does Changi actually have an observation deck ? I found the view from the pool area to be very average.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Have you checked out The Changi Aviation Gallery?

From the viewing gallery, one can also observe aircraft on the airport tarmac and find out more about Changi Airport.

Check out Harry's Bar on the roof of T-1. I don't remember if it's accessed before or after security, but it's a great spot to sit outside and have a coke and a smoke.


I'd rather be one of the worst and Dumbest than the best and brightest....life's so much more stress free that way

That place is after security. For landside, the best place to go is still the viewing mall. Airside wise, T1 offers lots of wonderful views!
