Changi Airport consisting of three terminals, is the main commercial airport serving international flights in Singapore. Located on the eastern edge of the island, it is one of the busiest international airports in the world. Since its opening in 1981, Changi Airport has received scores of accolades associated with international titles such as the International Federation of Airline Pilots Associations and the World Airport Awards. The Airport serves the tropical island of Singapore, which is home to a racially-diverse population. Communication and navigation are fairly easy as English is the dominant language used here.
From the commercial district, ChangiAirport can be accessed by Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), with its station lying at the East end of the green line. Traveling from some areas in the city to the Airport requires an MRT transfer, so be sure to check the MRT map at any station for your best option. Taxi services are always available for a more straightforward journey to the Airport.
Locally, there are several destinations worth a visit before leaving Singapore. Down the expressway leading from ChangiAirport is East Coast Park, one of Singapore’s key beaches. Don’t miss out on a feast of quintessential hawker food at the popular Changi Village Food Center.
Lying just off the southern coast of Singapore is the manicured Sentosa Island, which houses the world-class theme park Universal Studios Singapore. Ride the spills and thrills of 4D cinematics and winding rollercoasters, walk through the roads snaking past beachside bars and restaurants, and end the day with a cable car ride back to the main island.
There are also ferry services to Singapore’s other offshore islands, accessible from Marina South Pier. One popular destination is St. John’s Island, a small atoll with a secluded village resort. The ferry to St. John’s Island also goes to Kusu Island, where visitors can feed a pond of giant fish, tie their wishes to a tree at a fascinating Malay shrine built into a slope, and set up camp beneath the shade of the tree-lined coast.
One of the top destinations from Changi Airport is Jakarta, capital of Indonesia. Another developed city in Southeast Asia, Jakarta offers a glimpse into an entirely different culture. Visit the collections of traditional and colonial museums here, or take in the sights of the towering Jakarta Cathedral.
Another favourite foreign city is Hong Kong, just about four hours away by air. The city of endless eats and retail treats, visitors flock to this region for a change of pace: immerse in the exciting urban buzz coursing through Kowloon City and Hong Kong Island, or settle into the serenity of the giant Tian Tan Buddha on Lantau Island.
Closer to Singapore is Kuala Lumpur. Situated in the heart of Malaysia, the low-cost flights to this capital city make it a popular departure destination from Changi Airport. Here, visit the Petronas Towers – one of the tallest buildings in the world – and explore the mystic Batu temple caves just outside the city.
