We flew from Tokyo to Singapore for the first leg of our trip to Perth. Although we lived in Singapore for a year I never really spent much time in the airport. We’d arrive, check in, go to the lounge, and go to the gate. On this trip we had no lounge privileges and a long layover. First, we ate chicken rice. Yum. Then we claimed two seats near a window in an area with trees. After sitting for awhile we took turns guarding our bags and taking a walk around the terminal. There were many people sleeping.

There was a Koi pond nearby.

And then I found this…right in the airport. An amazing idea!

Changi Airport is a great place for a layover and I hear the duty free shopping is good, too.
