Arriving at the Singapore Airport

Upon arrival at the Changi Airport, we tried to figure out if we were to proceed with our plans our revised it.

There was internet access at the airport, information counters and a number of airport staff ready to address your concerns, or at least answer your queries.

We were fortunate to have availed of a promotional ticket sale, at about 25 to 30 % discount. However, our flight schedule was changed. It was okay since it was a better schedule, earlier than the original one.

It was a couple of days before the great event. It was the racing season in Singapore. People would be coming in for the Formula One Car Race. To add to that, Mariah Carey was having a concert of her own as well.

At the airport, we booked a hotel for one night, pretty cool, for we were assisted by the staff there. "No problemo", it was another promo offer, so it was affordable.

Since we made a 360-degree change in our plans, we decided to go to Sentosa. Again, we started asking a young airport staff regarding directions, transportation and possible activities. We got partial information. It was from the lady at the "customer service" counter where we got very good tips.

So off we went to "Resorts World" via taxi.

Too bad, I missed the swimming pool at Terminal 1, the indoor garden and rooftop garden at Terminal 2, the five-meter high "Green Wall" with hanging creepers plus a waterfall and the butterfly garden at Terminal 3 of the Changi airport.

About the Airport:

Singapore Changi Airport, Changi International Airport, or simply Changi Airport, is the main airport in Singapore. It is located at Paya Lebar.

Changi Airport also continued to improve the security systems such as access controls and surveillance systems to make the airport safer for travelers.

The 78 m (256 ft) high control tower is built on reclaimed land, with its design becoming an icon for the airport.Changi Airport currently has five terminals, T1, T2, T3, JetQuay CIP Terminal and Budget Terminal, with a total handling capacity of 73 million. Terminals 1, 2 and 3 are directly connected with a common transit area, with air side passengers being able to freely move between the terminals without going through immigration. Transport within and between these three terminals is provided by people movers and the sky train system, although it is also possible to walk between the terminals on foot for land side visitors. Situated beside Terminal 2 is JetQuay, which has its own check-in facilities for premium passengers and where transportation to aircraft in any of the other terminals is by personal buggy. The Budget Terminal, purpose-built for low-cost carriers, is physically separated from the main terminals towards the south, where connections are possible via a zero-fare shuttle bus service to Terminal 2.
