Playtime at Singapore’s Changi AirportChangi Airport, Singapore
Embark on an adrenaline rush that’s guaranteed to remove the cobwebs from your eyes as you tear down Changi Airport’s four-storey (12-metre) high indoor slide. Next, enjoy being among wings of an altogether different kind as you step into the enchanting butterfly garden. The lush greenery of this tropical oasis – complete with 6-metre waterfall and 47 species of native butterflies – will reinvigorate the senses.
If you don’t like fluttering critters on your face, head to the open-air rooftop cactus and sunflower gardens, or explore one of two landscaped ponds. Leave yourself just enough time to frolic in the Balinese-themed swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Pool access costs about US$8, but the energising effect of water on your dehydrated skin is priceless.
Whatever price you pay for the airport’s activities, your exhausted body will thank you.
