Singapore Shopping Airport Jewel

23 May 2023

Phase 3 of 3 - Jewel shower

Jewel Changi airport

The rare third update. Probably the final update! Although because 2 trips ago the bus broke down after arriving back in Melbourne, sometimes I post a bus pic. And years ago there was the Sydney apocalyptic dust storm that extended my trip in Sydney overnight, so you never know.

So, I had never been to Jewel before. It is in the middle of the airport, but accessible to the public. It is a giant shopping centre surrounding a forest with a fountain in the middle as you shall see. I think one other time I actually exited Singapore airport while it was in operation it was a work trip and I had a hire car with driver who dropped me off at the terminal door, so I missed it. It is worth going to, and if you live in Singapore, it is still worth going to, as the food is good, plentiful and cheap, and the airport train is priced the same as any subway ride.

After eating some Singaporean food and gawking at the fountain, it was time to go for my shower. Only a 20 minute wait, so that worked out also. Now it is just under 3 hours to my flight. Hmm, probably should have spent more time in Jewel.

Despite there being a Food Republic, I actually went to a real restaurant in Jewel, advertising that they have been doing something authentically impressive since 1941. I got the Dry Hor Fun (I think?). It is filled with various sea creatures. It was very good actually, but too much, however I thought I better eat some real food rather than have a salad or something similarly light and sensible before a 7.5 hours plane flight.

This may be a big flash mall in the middle of the airport, but locals still come here to do their shopping as I explained above. It even has a fairly regular sort of supermarket.

I had dropped my bag off in Jewel, they have an early check in counter there, however you still proceed via an elevated walkway back into the normal check in area, for me that was terminal 3, the check in area looks to have been re done and is large and impressive.


Singapore-Shopping-Airport-Jewel - And now possibly the last photo? Possibly not? My long awaited shower in the Singapore Airlines lounge. I was thrilled to be able to take a shower!
