Explore, Play, Dine and more at Jewel at Changi Airport

Destinations / Asia

Jewel started as a vision of being the gem of the destination as well as a much-needed expansion of Terminal 1 at Changi Airport; the airport hoped it would help boost the appeal as a stopover destination for travelers. The addition opened April 17, 2019, and has made news ever since. The glass and steel dome spans five levels filled with attractions, dining options and shops. The Rain Vortex, the focal point of Jewel, is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. Although stunning during the day, visit the waterfall at night to experience the spectacular light and sound show.


Shiseido Forest Valley makes you feel like you left the airport and are wandering around Singapore. Encounter plants from all over the world, with more than 900 trees and palms and about 60,000 shrubs. This indoor forest features two trails; the eastern trail takes you past rocky falls while the western trail provides a mist on your hike.


Both trails lead to Canopy Park, located at the top of Jewel, where you’ll find the perfect place to relax or play. Take a stroll through the Topiary Walk and Petal Garden or relax at one of the many charming diners. If you seek more of an adventure, head to the Mirror or Hedge mazes and see if you can find your way out. For a little more thrill, glide down the giant Discovery Slides and bounce among the trees on the Manulife Sky Nets. If bouncing isn’t your thing, walk across the Walking Sky Net or the glass Canopy Bridge and get a breathtaking view of Jewel.


All that exploring and playing is bound to work up an appetite. Luckily, Jewel boasts more than 100 dining spots, from sit-down to fast-food to snack options. Enjoy unique, local cuisine at Swatow Kitchen or classics like Shake Shack.


If you still have time to spare — and room in your suitcase — get ready to shop ’til you drop at one of the many shops; you’ll find everything from famous designers to locally homemade brands.


Need space to get work done or to stay overnight? Don’t worry, YOTELAIR has you covered. All cabins are affordable, spacious and come with the amenities you might need in order to work or relax until your flight.
