I have been to Singapore many times but usually go through Terminal 2 and the Budget Terminal. It came as a pleasant surprise that our Singapore Airlines staff announced we were arriving at Terminal 3 instead of at 2. I quickly realized the airline could do this as SIA flew out of both Terminals 2 and 3, with 2 used for flights to Asian destinations and 3 for flights to the US and Europe. Our aircraft would probably be flying to a US or European destination after we deplane. I have heard a lot of good stuff about Terminal 3, which is the newest and largest of the 3 main terminals at Changi. Mostly, I’ve heard and seen (in photos) about it from my wife, whom I trust to know what a good terminal is based on her frequent flights abroad. She has been to more international airports than me including those in Europe and the US. My first impression of Terminal 3 is that it is perhaps the best terminal I’ve seen so far and definitely puts Changi in the Top 2 or 3 airports in the world.
Indoor pocket forest at Changi’s huge Terminal 3 – these were actual trees laid out inside the terminal that visitors could see as they descended the escalators from the concourse to proceed towards the immigration counters.
Statues of a couple on what looks like real grass with bird flying around them. There was a description near the artwork but opted not to approach and be too touristy considering this area was just before the immigration counters.
