Changi Airport Singapore is a great airport for the user – very spacious, green, fast to get through, and clean.

It has nearly a thousand (919 when built) energy saving skylights (ventilation flaps), a butterfly garden, koi pond and over 200 species of mostly tropical plants and trees.

It takes up space of over 50 soccer fields. It seems to have been built for the future expansion of air travel (assuming we don’t run out of fuel of course). The London Heathrow refurbishment and new terminal seems a bit too busy already.

Iz it a park or an airport? Can’t tell. Warm feeling after long haul. Building is high quality. Vegetation also. Koi and butterflies fine.

Hello there: many thanks for using the time of writing up this material. I at all times aim to further my knowledge of issues. Regardless of whether I consent or disagree, I love information and facts. I don’t forget the old times if the only source of facts was the library or even the newspaper. They both look so archaic. : )
