How to Get to the Jewel Changi Airport
Singapore is a very innovative place; you can easily find the airport in Google Maps.
Anyway, one thing we really need to tell you is that you should consider a vehicle reservation. You see, it is not only about getting to the place, but also returning to your hotel. There are approximately 300,000 visitors in a day in the Changi Airport; most of them will be hailing taxis, so it might be difficult for you to get one.
Also, even if Jewel Changi is an attraction, it still is an airport. So, you will see restless faces and need to experience all the hassle while boarding a vehicle in an airport.
As mostly families visit the Jewel Changi, we recommend that you rent a 13-seater minibus. It is comfortable, and when you make a reservation, as the driver will be waiting for you. This also gives you more time to have fun as you won’t have to look for a taxi or such. You can contact us for more information.
