Consistently ranked among the world’s top airports, there are good reasons why Changi Airport is known to be “a destination in itself”. While the transit areas offer a wide array of leisure activities for travellers, Changi’s public areas are no less attractive. It’s okay if you’re not flying because there’s an experience for every visitor in the airport’s public areas.

The Slide @ T3:

For the older and more adventurous kids, it’s thrills without spills at one of the tallest indoor slides in an airport– The Slide @ T3, Level 1. Measuring 12-metres-tall (that’s four-storeys-high!), this enclosed slide allows riders to whizz down at a speed of six metres per second. For the younger children, a smaller version of The Slide is available at Basement 1.
