Make Most of Your Transit Time at

CHANGI Airport

Where More Adventure Awaits

· Asia

Traveling is always fun but that also comes with a lot of other things which are not so much fun and that includes flight journeys. Whether it be a long flight or a short flight I always want it to get me to my destination at the earliest (Of course if I travel Business Class my opinions might change).

Some travelers prefer direct flights whereas some prefer via flights which gives them time to get some break from the cabin air. However; your transit duration and transit airport add a lot to your boredom or fun part of the journey.

I have traveled via multiple different airports to my destinations, and the best one I thought was the Changi International Airport. It is an airport which actually has got its own sightseeing, gardens and other activities and you do not even need to step out of the airport. All of these things are available in the transit area itself. The airport has also been awarded World's Best Airport.

Changi International Airport comprises four Terminals; the fourth terminal is newly added. And every terminal has got something to amaze you. You can use sky trains to travel between the terminals.
