Notes on Changi Airport

Jump to last reply

Changi Airport is my favorite airport in the world. On my recent trip to Asia, I transited through Changi, as well as spening a night near the airport.

In the airport, there are now kiosks that offer FREE internet access for 15 minutes at a time. Some are on the concourse near the gate areas, some are upstairs near the airline lounges and the food outlets.

I had a several hour layover in Changi at oner point on this trip, and found a place called My Foot (near gate E6). They offer foot reflexology, pedicures, and full body massages. The prices are quite reasonable. It was a great way to kill an hour between flights.

If you are flying First Class on Singapore Air, the First Class section of their Silver Kris lounge in Changi is the best airport lounge I've ever been in (and I've seen plenty!). However, the Singapore Air first class lounges in other airports are rudimentary at best (for instance, KL).

I needed a place to stay overnight (arriving at midnight, departing at noon) near Changi. As you may know, there is a transit hotel in Changi. I've stayed there before and the rooms are clean but very basic. If my flight had been out at say, 8 am, I would have stayed in the Transit Hotel (always book ahead on the internet, at the Changi Airport website, as they consistenly are full). The Le Meridien at Changi Village has re-opened after several years of remodeling, so I booked a room there for US$98 including tax, service, full buffet breakfast, and a shuttle back to the airport (www.asiahotels.com). The hotel is nice, everyhting is new and clean. The rooms themselves are rather small, but they have very nice bathrooms. The buffet breakfast was very good, with all the usual buffet dishes (including Japanese and Chinese options as well) and an omelet station where the chef makes omelets to order with lots of options for fillings. The one downside to this hotel is that it takes almost as much time to get to this hotel (perhaps 20 minutes) as it would to get to a downtown hotel (about 30 minutes). If you have more than, say, 12 hours in Singapore, I'd go downtown.
