8 Hour Layover IN SIN

Mon Jul 06, 2009 1:34 am

Hi all,

lucky me gets to fly SQ BNE-SIN-FRA return in business class this coming week. I am flying SQ 246/12 and SQ 326/13 to FRA and SQ 325/15 and SQ 235/16 on the return.

On my way to Germany I have just about 8 hours time to explore SIN. Will certainly take some time to rest in the SQ Business Class lounge in T3 but want to take time to explore the airport. Have been to SIN many time but never had more than 2 hours between flights.

Intend to go for a swim (is it T1 or T2 ?). Do you have other suggestions to spend my time ? Not in to Duty Free so no need to suggest shopping.

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

Hi Peter,

SIN is a great place to spend actually, there are some opputunities I found for plane spotting at Terminal 3, but with eight hours you can try and enter the country though I don't know the visa requirements of Singapore.

I think the swimming pool is in T1 and is at the transit hotel - I think, so pls dont quote me on that, and yes I feel that if you want to spend 8 hours at the airport it is very much possible without actually getting bored but you can go to the city as well for a change.

Go to www.changiairport.com.sg and you will learn alot more then what I am telling you, this is from past experience

Hi Age92,

thanks for your reply. May actually head in to Singapore to catch-up with a couple of friends depending how I feel after the night flight from BNE. Looking forward to flying their new A333.

Cheers from Brisbane,

Peter

With a minimum 5-hour connection you are eligible and can take the free Singapore tour offered by the airport.
