Finding something to entertain the little ones at the airport is no easy task, particularly if you’re about to embark on a long-haul flight or trying to kill hours between connecting flights! It seems Singapore has factored parents’ sanity into their 1.7 billion dollar extension of Changi Airport by including water fountains, giant mazes, interactive parks, and even a Discovery Slide playground. Hello wow factor!

The impressive airport extension, now referred to as ‘Jewel Changi’, was introduced to the world on 17 April 2019 and has been incredibly well received the world over (particularly by us weary parents!). Changi Airport has always been an airport favourite, continually ranked either in the top 5 or the number 1 airport in the world, but this latest development will certainly cement Jewel Changi’s place as the best airport in the world for kids.

If you’re lucky enough to be flying in to “The City In A Garden” in the coming months, make the most of its fancy new digs, which includes 280 new shops and eateries to the likes of Shake Shack, Burger and Lobster, and Pink Fish. The 6-acre indoor forest with the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and one of Singapore’s largest collections of indoor plants are sure to impress. And we reckon the kids can blow off some 'steam' in the foggy bowls! Designed by The Exploratorium, in San Francisco, these gentle concave bowls allow the kids to jump in them while mist is released to create an illusion of playing among clouds. Lush!
