“Welcome to Singapore, ladies, and gentlemen, and to all Singaporeans and residents of Singapore, a very warm welcome home.”

Sounds familiar? We truly miss flying, the in-flight announcements, the airplane food, the waiting area at the boarding gate, watching aircraft departs the runway, just every little thing about travel.

Of course, there is no place like Changi Airport. Offering the best amenities, retail, and dining options for travellers and locals alike, Singapore Changi Airport has been awarded the “World’s Best Airport” for the eighth year in a row at the annual Skytrax World Airport Awards.

Where are some of your favourite places in Singapore? We bet Changi Airport is one of them. It is more than just a place of transit; it is a place of reunion, long-awaited endings, and new beginnings. This July, Changi Airport is celebrating its 40th anniversary since the opening of Terminal 1 in 1981. Even though Covid-19 has disrupted leisure travel, it also gives rise to new ways to work and play. Remote working doesn’t always have to be at home. How about a change of scenery with a 2D1N getaway at Jewel Changi Airport?
