Singapore Changi Airport is arguably one of the world's impressive airports, and comes complete with a swimming pool on the roof that passengers can use between flights, along with a large cactus garden and open-air bar. The facility has won almost 300 awards and has recently been voted the 'World's Best Airport' by the UK-based travel company Skytrax.

Buses and trains are operated by the Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (SMRT), while also available are Airport Shuttle maxi-cabs for up to six passengers and 24-hour taxis, allowing you to reach the nearby suburbs of Bukit Timah, Johor Baharu, Jurong, Pasir Gudang and Queenstown.
About Singapore Tourism
The glamorous city of Singapore was just a small Malay fishing village some 200 years ago and has grown to become a modern capital. Singapore's Colonial Core is flooded with historical sights and tourist appeal, with cathedral, museums and many interesting memorials, which are dotted around Esplanade Park. Other highlights include the Jurong Bird Park, the National Museum, Peranakan Place Museum, Singapore Botanic Gardens and the neighbouring Sentosa Island, known for its enormous sheltered sandy beachfront.
The Financial district is where the majority of the city's skyscrapers reside, such as the towering Republic Plaza building, UOB Plaza One and OUB Centre, all of which dominate the Singapore skyline. Singapore Airport (SIN) is the main gateway to the country and located in the Changi area, on the eastern side of the island. Those looking for the best selection of shops head to Orchard Road, where many modern shopping malls await, while for the best restaurants, pay a visit to either Little India or the Chinatown district.
