Passing the time at Changi Airport in Singapore

PartyBingo.comIt happens. You get to the airport and your flight is delayed or you are in Singapore for a connecting flight but you have couple of more hours to wait.

You’re stuck at Changi Airport in Singapore. Now, what are you going to do while you wait? Good thing you are in a place where there is no shortage of things to do.

If your cellphone battery is running low, don’t worry – there are free mobile charging stations throughout the airport. That’s not all though. The airport also offers free gaming. You can play Xbox, PS3, or LAN games for free.

Maybe you want to watch a film. Changi has movie theaters! One of these is the 3D Experience Zone! Awesome. But, if you are more interested in the arts, there is an art gallery too. This is less like an airport than a resort. Remember back when you were happy with plastic seats and a snack bar?

And, of course there is plenty of shopping. Don’t worry, there are many more options than just the duty free. In fact, Changi has more entertainment options than most cities do. A rooftop swimming pool, butterfly and sunflower gardens, orchid gardens, and a specialized viewing gallery for watching planes land and take off.

It just gets better and better. You can take a nap in specialized snooze chairs or even get a massage! The ladies can get hair and body treatments while the kids have fun in the play-zones or the woodblock rubbing stations and Dad can have a drink in the lounges with his own bottle and the cocktails made by a professional.

Of course, all that fun might make you hungry or thirsty. Don’t worry, more than a hundred and thirty food and drink venues await you. Live music rounds out the fun.

Never mind the flight. Singapore is my next vacation destination.
