Changi (Singapore): An airport reaching new heights
Your initiation to Singapore is likely to be touching down in the airport for the first time, and Changi Airport is a town within a town, like a tropical bubble offering a tranquil pause between two planes. Currently boasting the prestigious second world ranking based on service, cleanliness and environmental concerns, Singapore Airport was streaks ahead in 2010, with its historic rivals, Hong Kong and Seoul, left floundering in its wake.
And the secret to its success? A calm and understated atmosphere, with soundproofed, multi-coloured carpets. As soon as you step into the terminal, a butterfly garden lifts passengers’ spirits, before the option of a refreshing drink from a waterfall, bathing on the rooftops, watching a film in one of the many cinemas or simply admiring fishes. Gardens abound, planted with sunflowers, orchids and carnivorous plants. Foot massage stations, computers a-go-go, or there is also a quick bus ride around town before your next flight. And rest assured that passing through customs is a short-lived affair and luggage tends to arrive more often than not…and even before its precious human cargo! Keys to success indeed…
