Chilling in Changi: Rule 32, enjoy the little things

Singapore’s Changi airport totally rocks!

Since I was here last year it has got even better. I”ve got a few hours here before heading onwards and upwards to Auckland. So when I arrived I headed through the new shiny terminal 3 to terminal 1 where the transit hotel is located.

I must have been here a dozen times, but this is the first time I’ve used the transit hotel’s swimming pool. For S$14 (just under GBP7) non-guests get to use the outdoor pool, a complementary non-alcoholic drink, a towel, a locker, and access to hot showers with free shampoo. Who needs a poxy business class lounge?

So I feel refreshed, and I’m now enjoying free internet access.

The Singapore A380 was a  good experience. Brilliant video-on-demand system with a big, crystal clear screen. In the main cabin, I was the only person to have a spare seat next to me. The food was excellent, too.

Watched clash of the titans and zombieland. Former good, latter just brilliant. Wine? Fortant de France Cabernet. Fruity, correct, OK.

    Have fun in NZ and if you have time, head to Cable Bay on Waiheke Island. Amazing food and wine :) Erin Robson

  • That great swimming pool was there when I flew out of Singapore 2 years ago after participating in Food and Hotel Asia. I noticed at the time, that it was full of Aussies and Kiwis who relished the break on their long haul flights to down under. I enjoyed the swim just to get ready for my Singapore-Europe 12 hour flight.

    European airports are so primitive compared to Asian ones! Suppose the gap will get even bigger still!
