First look inside Jewel Changi Airport, Singapore's newest big-ticket attraction

The facility, which is now open for previews to the public, will open its doors on April 17.

Covering a floor space of 135,700 square meters at the gateway to the airport, the complex was jointly developed by Changi Airport Group and CapitaLand Group from a previous carpark area.

Other facilities include 280 shops, an 11-screen cinema, a giant slide, and two mazes (one made of hedges, the other mirrors).

The everyday airport is a frenetic, stress-filled place, so Jewel Changi aims to be a haven of calm while passengers wait for their flights.

The Jewel Changi Airport is located near Singapore's Terminal 1 and it is connected to Terminals 2 and 3. There are also early check-in counters and kiosks, and a VIP lounge for travelers.

He had been banned from Mall of America in the past, and was convicted of misdemeanors in two separate incidents there in 2015. Aranda also was accused of walking into a mall store and sweeping his hand across a display table, breaking glasses.

As well as an attraction for visitors to Singapore, it is also billed as a destination in its own right for local residents.

The 40-metre high Rain Vortex, which is the world's tallest indoor waterfall, is seen from inside Jewel Changi Airport.

Jewel also provides handsome scenery for visitors. It is surrounded by manicured grounds of the Shiseido Forest Valley. The belief is that the quality of an airport can sway travel decisions. Play attractions such as the Manulife Sky-Nets, Hedge Maze, Mirror Maze and Discovery Slides were created to blend into the indoor garden environment and will open 10 June. It will be open from 1 10 p.m. only and throughout the preview days, it is expected that around 500,000 people will visit since they already signed up for free preview tickets.

Changi Airport, recently voted in a Skytrax survey as the best in the world for the seventh consecutive year, reported a record 65.6 million passenger movements in 2018.
