Nature lovers who also travel frequently, rejoice – you’ll now be able to get your greenery fix at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
The Jewel mixed-use complex will open in early 2019, Changi Airport Group announced on Wednesday (7 June). It will feature unique play attractions, a five-storey indoor garden, hotel chain YOTEL, and multiple shopping and dining options.
Canopy Park on level five of Jewel will feature three “play” attractions – Sky Nets, Canopy Mazes, and Discovery Slides. It will also have open “play” areas such as Foggy Bowls, where children can “wander through mists as though walking among clouds”.
These “play areas” will let visitors bounce, roam and slide through the Canopy Park, and are designed by world-renowned consultants from Britain, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Singapore and the United States.
“Not only will Jewel capture the hearts and minds of travellers and boost Singapore’s appeal as a transit hub, it will enhance the Changi Airport experience for our passengers and visitors,” said Jean Hung, the CEO of Jewel Changi Airport Development.
“More importantly, it will be a space where Singapore meets the world to allow for sharing of ideas at the doorstep of Changi Airport,” Hung said.
The attractions at Canopy Park are the third centrepiece of the Jewel mixed-use complex. Others include the Forest Valley, a five-storey garden with thousands of trees and plants, and the 40m high Rain Vortex, which is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall (for now, anyway).
A 50m-long Canopy Bridge suspended 22m above the ground (about three stories) will allow visitors to have an excellent vantage point to view the Rain Vortex.
