8 hr layover singapore airport

We have an 8 hr layover in singapore from 1:00 to 9:00. Any suggestions? Can't go sightseeing in the middle of the nite. Is there someplace we could rest and wash up?

Singapore's Changi Airport is a 24 hr operation. There's a movie theatre, very large games room, restaurants an snacks bars and shopping, plenty to keep you busy, also quiet areas to relax. The airport is quiet between about 3 and 5 a.m but there will be lots of other people around all in transit.
There are transit rooms which can be booked in adavnce ( these get full but you can book in advance if you want to sleeep, rooms are basic but a/c TV shower )or you just pay to use the shower facilities so you can wash and change, there is also a GYM but not sure if open all night.

We stayed at the transit hotel in the airport in March. It was really basic, but clean and fairly cheap, even offered tea/coffee in the room. The airport is very quiet at that time of night, so not sure you can do anything else, but I would recommend the transit rooms for a hot shower and quick sleep! Be sure to book ahead, they have a website and I think the official name is the Ambassador Transit Hotel.

Transit Hotel is absolutely the way to go. I've stayed there 7 times. It's great. Terminal 2 Transit Hotel is the one you want (International Terminal.)
Book thru their website.
