Singapore’s Changi Airport Is Getting a Makeover and We Can’t Even

When you’ve been called the best airport in the world for seven years running, there’s a lot of pressure to back it up. That’s why Singapore’s Changi Airport is taking measures to cement its top status. Set to arrive in 2019, Changi Airport will build a new facility that not only connects all three terminals but also contains over 100 hotel rooms and 300 dining and shopping spots. But Changi isn’t stopping there. The mixed-use facility will also be aesthetically stunning with forest-like gardens, floating nets, and the world’s biggest indoor waterfall, all across three main areas: the Canopy Park, Forest Valley, and Rain Vortex.

Canopy Park will cover 14,000 square meters and feature playgrounds, gardens, sky nets (for both walking and bouncing), and mazes composed of hedges and mirrors. Forest Valley will be a five-story garden with flower displays and hiking trails. As the centerpiece of the new project, the Ran Vortex will be the most impressive addition: a 40-meter-high waterfall.

If you plan on traveling through Singapore after 2019, make sure your layover is a good couple of hours. And if you hadn’t planned a trip, you might want to change that. These new additions are intended to give the airport an amusement-park feel and are sure to make layovers a lot more enjoyable.
