A Pleasant Excursion At Changi Airport


I wonder if you have read my previous post on Changi Airport a month ago? I have blogged about the “9 Great Reasons To Shop & Dine At Changi Airport!

Well, and now I would like to continue covering a little bit more about my excursion within Transit areas at Changi Airport Terminal 1, 2 and 3 that can be of interest for you. Who knows!

In this short post, I’m going to blog about the amenities at Singapore Changi Airport.


Rejuvenate & Retreat

Refresh Fish Spa & Reflexology at Changi Airport Terminal 1 (near Transit Gate D41) offers a wide range of services that includes fish spa, foot reflexology, full body (traditional & modern) massages, manicures and pedicures.

This unique refreshing Fish Spa, a special exfoliation treatment, is a must-try for travellers at Changi Airport. There are many tiny “Doctor” fishes, originated from Turkey, will be nibbling away your dead skin whilst smoothing your new skin!

Fish Spa & Reflexology opens 24/7 and it’s definitely a great place to unwind and rejuvenate especially for long-haul travellers. You can even sleep on the massage chair over the night for a small fee.

Indulging myself on a complimentary relaxing foot massage. Shiok!


A Garden City

Do you know there are total of 5 gardens at Changi Airport? That includes Cactus Garden at Terminal 1 (image above), Sunflower Garden, Fern Garden and Orchid Garden at Terminal 2 and Butterfly Garden at Terminal 3.

This Butterfly Garden at Terminal 3 houses more than 1,000 butterflies.


A Private Viewing

Make a guess on where is the exact location of this runway view? I bet you wouldn’t know kekeke…..

Well, it’s in the toilet of Transit area at Changi Airport Terminal 1.


Hard Rock Cafe at Terminal 3 is the first international airport outlet in the world. You can access to free internet at any of these terminals outside the Hard Rock Cafe. In fact, there are more than 550 free internet terminals across the 4 terminals and airport-wide free Wi-Fi.

You can now make an urgent delivery to overseas or within Singapore at any of the Speedpost booths at transit areas. Just throw your items into the box and fill up the form.

I believe most of us are aware of this service. Make your purchase at transit areas before departing and collect them when returning.
