Singapore’s main airport is an experience not to be missed, if only to find out why it’s consistently ranked as one of the best in the world.

Thankfully, air travellers won’t need to go out of their way to experience the multitude of shopping, dining and entertainment experiences on offer at the airport’s three terminals.

You’ll get to satisfy your urge to shop even before you hit the city, with some of the best duty-free outlets in town selling everything from cosmetics and liquor to luxury watches and fashion accessories.

No layover will feel too long when there are video game consoles, large screen televisions and two movie theatres to keep you entertained. If you want to catch up on work, take advantage of the free internet access and hunker down in one of the many comfortable seats that can be found throughout the airport.

For something a little more relaxing, go for a stroll in the world's first Butterfly Garden in an airport, or pamper yourself with an oriental foot reflexology massage.

And when your stomach starts to growl, there’s a wide of range of local, regional and international cuisines to pick from.

With so many experiences on hand, the only thing you have to worry about is not missing your flight.
