Newest Review: ... MRT tends to be quite crowded especially during the rush hour so you may find it difficult to squeeze into the MRT if you are carrying with you a big luggage. Taking the taxi is the probably the easiest way. You will not have difficulty to locate a taxi in the airport. One thing you have to note that is that there are sur-charges for travelling to and from the airport and there will be extra ... more

I titled this review as Singapore Changi Airport - Second Best in the World because Hong Kong International Airport is simply the best in the World. Singapore Airport, though I have to admit, a very good one, is only the second best in my mind. Travelling to the Airport Travelling to the airport is easy. You can either take the MRT (the subway), the bus or the taxi to the airport. I have not tried travelling to the airport by bus so can't really comment on that. It is easy to travel on the MRT as all the information are displayed in four official languages (English, Chinese, Malay and Hindi). It can take you to the city centre in about ...

thousands are stranded and some may not have ebnough money tosleep properly in hotels so I am going to offer free accomodation for stranded tourists, max 2 to stay at my house but they must not be smokers and should like cats. hp 90042895 offer just for this period only due to volcanic ash erruptions in Iceland.

Singapore airport is really strange - it is one of the few airports where it is actually a joy to be there even if you're just sitting round waiting for your flight! I visited the airport recently after flying back home from Australia and I wasn't looking forward to the few hours wait for my connecting flight. I can genuinely say that time flew by (no pun intended!) whne I was at the airport as there was as much, or as little as you wished to do available. Dotted around the airport were a number of free massage chairs. Unfortunately they were all taken up during my visit by other visitors but it made me think what a great way to relax and chill ...

Changi airport is Singapore's only airport and it is by far and away the best airport in the world. Period. I could leave it at that, enough said. However i shall justify my claim as it is quite a bold one. Changi airport is typical in its singaporean style, it is efficient, frighteningly so at times. Wether you are arriving or departing everything is done in a prompt and quiet fashion, all the information you need is given to you before you know you need it. In all my times passing through Changi i have never had to que for more than 10 minutes, wether it be for check-in or baggage reclaim. On numerous occasions it has taken less than 15 minutes from touching ... Read the complete review

I should specify immediately that this review has a specific focus; the benefits of SIN as a transfer airport. SIN is located conveniently in the heart of south east Asia, and is frequently used as a transfer point to travel to/from Australia and the Middle East. In my case, I had booked a plane ticket from Brisbane to London Heathrow, and had two transfer spots en route; Singapore and Abu Dhabi. I spent approx 2 hours in SIN and it made a significant impact on me. My experience is detailed below. Having entered the transfer lounge, my fellow passengers and I were immediately and clearly informed as to how long we had in the airport, where we could go, and ... Read the complete review
