Singapore Changi Airport has been voted as the world's best airport on multiple occasions. In fact, from 2012 to 2017, international air travelers have named it as being the best one. What exactly makes it the best? Here are a few reasons.
The airport has a bus that arrives every single 15 minutes, and this bus brings you on a tour of the major attractions in the city. You can hop off the bus and on the bus as you please, and best of all the city tours are completely free. You will enjoy seeing attractions and sights in Singapore such as Chinatown, the Colonial District and Marina Bay Sands. You can catch a bus right from Terminal 3, so if you have a connecting flight to make or you have to wait a few hours for your next plan to arrive, then hop on the bus and take a free city tour.
The Butterfly Garden
Imagine if there was an airport that had a massive garden with butterflies in it because you don't have to imagine it, as the Changi Airport has one. In 2008, the airport opened it up in Terminal 3, which is where you'll find over 200 species of butterflies, as well as foliage and natural skylight. If you have a long layover at the airport, then head over to Terminal 3 and check out the butterfly garden. You can easily spend an hour or two there before catching your flight. Singapore is after all known as the Garden City!
