Routinely voted the world's best airport, Changi is symbolic of Singapore's progressive and pragmatic governing policies, transforming this country over 50 years into a booming metropolis with home ownership of more than 90%, low income housing for the poor, safe and clean streets and even a government sponsored network to help singles find a life partner. All this despite being the second most densely populated nation in the world! It's not surprising that the airport is focused on creating the best possible experience for its visitors and transit passengers, with transit hotels, a safe and efficient metro system, spas, free movie theaters, free city tours, an affordable Singapore street food experience, free massage chairs, free wifi, a snooze lounge, a butterfly garden and nature walk. With a flight landing, on average, every ninety seconds, there's no doubt that this busy airport continues to be a favorite of travelers flying in and out of SE Asia as well as transiting en-route to Europe, Australia and New Zealand or the Americas. The next time there's a long haul flight in your future, transit through Singapore for a superior airport experience. We've included some ideas for interesting tours and activities.
