Singapore Changi Airport is named World's Best Airport in 2010 World Airport Awards. It also took the titles for Best Airport Leisure Amenities and Best Airport Asia. A 5-star airport, it has won more than 350 awards since it first opened in 1981.
Departure Hall, Terminal 3 , Singapore Changi Airport
Like most Singaporeans who pass through our Singapore Changi Airport in a hurry on our travels abroad, I was not aware that it houses a diverse range of facilities and services in its 3 terminals to cater to the sophisticated needs of its guests. Shame on me!
On a recent overseas trip,I finally get to enjoy the “Changi Experience”.
24-hour Movie Theatre
In the Departure/ Transit Mall of Terminals 2 and 3, travellers can catch the latest blockbusters on large projection screens for free, 24 hours daily at the Movie Theatres. Die-hard movie fans like me can enjoy movies of different genres at Terminal 3, Level 3 or the latest movie screenings on Star Movies at Terminal 2, Level 3.
Terminal 3's Powder Room
I was pleasantly surprised to find the world's first Powder Room in an airport when I walked into Terminal 3's ladies' toilet. Ladies who just got off a plane could spruce up here before an important meeting..... or try on the cosmetics she has just bought from the duty-free counters.

Not forgetting mothers with young children, there is a diaper changing corner and wash area for little kids.

To meet the connectivity needs of travellers, Changi Airport offers seamless Internet access for those carrying laptops and iPads via free Ethernet LAN points. For those without laptops or iPads, they can enjoy free surfing at more than 500 Internet terminals located throughout the airport’s terminals.
Tired from all the walking in the humongous airport? There are standalone foot massage machines at different spots in the terminals for travellers to soothe their tired feet for free.
Whether you are waiting for your flight in transit or to board your flight, you can visit, ‘The Ultimate Spa’ (Terminal 2) to get pampered with a soothing massage. I felt the aches and pain, cares and stresses of city life being kneaded away, as a trained practitioner pampered me with an oil massage. What a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of a busy airport in this tucked away relaxation corner located at Terminal 2.
