If you ever have a flight layover, make sure it’s at Singapore’s Changi Airport. Growing up in Singapore, I’ve been to this airport numerous times but I had no idea it had a Balinese-themed swimming pool, a movie theater, and a butterfly garden!
But it doesn’t stop there. Recently, the airport unveiled a “super slide” named Slide@T3, the tallest slide in Singapore. It’s also also the tallest slide in any airport around the world (although I’m sure not many airports have gigantic slides).
For every $22 bucks you spend at the airport, you get two tokens to experience an adrenaline rush down this 40-foot-tall slide. Each ride down will cost you one token. Or, if you’re late for a flight, just take a free ride down the shorter, one-and-a-half-story tall slide located at Terminal 3 Basement 2.
Not only is the airport equipped with these delightful time-killers, but the food selection is amazing, too. I always order a dozen Xiao Long Bao or steamed soup dumplings at the Imperial Treasure restaurant before I board a long flight.
I just might have to purposely miss my flight next time.
