 Singapore airport introduces new indoor forest and rides

Passengers travelling through Singapore 's Changi Airport could soon be hoping their flights are delayed!

That's because the airport is opening 'Jewel', a brand new expansion that includes over 280 shops and restaurants, and an epic Canopy Park complete with slides, mazes, sky nets and indoor forests.

 

In fact, the airport's new offering will be spread across ten storeys and a total area of 137,000 sq m, all connected to the airport's Terminals 1, 2 and 3. The project has cost S$1.7billion (approx £951million).

 

 

There will be so much on offer, you're going to want to get to the airport early for your flight.

For a start, there's the pretty cool 'Majestic Rain Vortex', a light and sound show that looks like a giant rainbow waterfall, serving as the centrepiece to the complex.

 

But that's not all; the park will offer heaps of fun attractions for families to discover while they kill time before their flight.

 

For young kids, there are the 'Foggy Bowls' gardens where grassy areas emit light mists so children can pretend they're playing in the clouds.

 

 

For thrill-seekers, there are the incredible Sky Nets located 25m above the main level where passengers can walk or bounce along and take in the airport views below.

 

Other attractions include the Canopy Mazes make sure you leave extra time in case you get a bit lost - you don't want to miss your flight, and the Discovery Slides where an art sculpture doubles up as a four-slides-in-one concept.

 

Looking to stretch your legs before you board your long-haul flight?

The attraction's Topiary Walk will be filled with animal-themed surprises, while the Petal Garden will offer a burst of colour thanks to the heaps of exotic flowers arranged in seasonal displays.


Or you can go exploring the four-storey Forest Valley containing thousands of trees and plants, set to be one of the largest indoor collections of plants in Singapore.

 

 

For those who are really keen to make the most of it, Jewel will even boast its own 130-room hotel, YOTEL AIR  Singapore Changi Airport.

 

The best part is that you won't need to wait long if you do plan to travel through Changi and want to check out the expansion.
