Singapore’s Changi Airport has been awarded the ‘World’s Best Airport’ by Skytrax for seven years running and it’s not hard to see why! In addition to being a leader in efficiency and convenience, the airport experience is enhanced with stunning gardens, first-of-its kind attractions, a diverse range of F&B experiences and convenient transit hotels. Most of which are picture perfect!

Location #1: Rain Vortex (Jewel Changi Airport)

  • WHAT: The heart of the new Jewel Changi Airport complex and the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40 metres high. The #RainVortex has been hashtagged by almost 5,500 people on Instagram since it opened to the world in April 2019
  • WHERE: To capture the sunshine streaming through the waterfall, producing a rainbow effect, head to Level 4, outside YOTELAIR or for a panoramic shot with the lush Forest Valley in the background, head to Level 2, East Trail
