If you’re flying long-haul from Australia with kids, it’s worth any extra money you pay to stopover in Singapore. If you fly with carry on only, then store your luggage (terminal 1, level 3) for a few hours and go and have some fun.
Singapore’s Tallest Slide
Thrill-seekers, head to the Terminal 3 arrival hall. The slide is 4 storeys tall. For every $10 spent at the airport, you can redeem one ride. Rides are redeemable at the information counter, level 1.
Go for a swim:
Use the Ambassador Transit Hotel’s swimming pool for SGD $13.91, which includes using the pool, the shower, toiletries and a non-alcoholic drink.
The entertainment deck:
Catch a free flick at the cinema, play some x-box or Playstation, visit the MTV booth… located on Departure Transit Lounge, Level 3 of Terminal 2 (next to the Sunflower Garden), this is a one-stop integrated, multi-media entertainment centre.
Visit the Family Zone:
There are a couple of playgrounds in the airport, but the one in the Family Zone in Terminal 2 is particularly good. The family Zone also has an entertainment room showing kid-friendly movies and TV when you just need to chill.
Need some nature?
The Nature Tail is designed to be a nature retreat for stressed travellers. Terminal 2 has a fern garden, orchid garden and Koi ponds. Terminal 3 has a (level 2) Butterfly Garden that is home to more than 1000 butterflies, from 50 different species from Singapore and Malaysia.
Kids can learn woodblock rubbing the Asian Icon Interactive Art station at Terminal 2, level 2.
