You can now take free tours of Singapore Changi Airport’s Jewel precinct

As if Singapore Changi Airport couldn’t get any better, the frequent award-winner has built upon its reputation with the addition of the experiential Jewel lifestyle precinct. Opening up earlier this year in April, Jewel has already racked up over 300,000 visitors per day, and to acknowledge this the precinct has now kicked off free public tours.

A great way to kill time during transit, the tour will take guests through the many different layers of Jewel, providing deeper insight into the fascinating architecture, which includes the world’s largest indoor waterfall, and multitude of entertainment, dining and retail experiences.

With only two tours each day, one in the morning (10:30am to 1pm) and another in evening (6pm to 8:30pm), anyone heading out on this deep-dive into the world’s best airport will be able to sample local food from hawker-style Five Spice Food Court, get up close to the Forest Valley and Rain Vortex (said waterfall), and be given free entry to Jewel’s ticketed Canopy Park.

The evening tours will add even more, with a viewing of the light and sound performance, which uses the Rain Vortex extensively. Although exclusive to the morning tours is a visit to d’Good Café for a taste of local coffee and information about the city’s coffee heritage via an attached museum.

Guests of the tours will also be able to purchase Changi Experience Studio (CES) tickets at S$19, which is a discount of S$6 from the usual standard rate for foreigners. The CES is an immersive state-of-the-art digital experience attraction, that tells stories of Changi Airport in an interactive way.

Anyone interested in joining the tours is advised to register early for their spot. More information and bookings can be found HERE.
