Flights to Singapore
Singapore is home to one of Asia's major hub airports, Changi Airport.
If you're flying to Singapore, you'll be coming through Changi.
Singapore Changi Airport
Singapore Changi Airport is one of the busiest airports in the world. You can get flights here from pretty much anywhere.
It's also one of the best airports in the world, winning awards left, right and centre.
When you land, expect some serious shopping and eating options.
But what exactly makes it an award-winning airport? Perhaps it's the nature trail around all three terminals? The butterfly garden?
Maybe it's Singapore's biggest slide - four storeys high and with no age restrictions!
You'll also find a movie theatre, art installations, and a wood-block-rubbing station. Changi is a destination in its own right.
Changi Airport transfers
Once you land at Singapore Changi Airport, you have loads of transfer options to get into Singapore city centre.
The Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) subway system is the quickest, easiest and cheapest way to travel. It's likely you'll be using the MRT lots during your stay - it's the easiest way to zip around the island.
Other options for getting from Changi to downtown Singapore include a 24-hour airport shuttle bus and taxis.
Changi Airport is approximately 20km from the central business district.
