On April 17, 2019, Jewel Changi Airport, a beautiful extension of Terminal 1, was opened to public. Initially the intention was to expand only the capacity of Terminal 1 and the car park, eventually Jewel is one of the most fascinating places at airports worldwide. It is really worth it to lake a look around for an hour or more, there are many attractions, shops and places to eat and drink. The most famous attraction in Jewel is the tallest indoor waterfall in the world. Please note that Jewel is located on the landside area of Singapore Changi Airport.
