Jewel Changi Airport
We know just how much ho chiak places our terminals have, but it seems like they decided to make Jewel into a blackhole for foodies. A real hole you can find is the Rain Vortex, a masterful water feature encompassed within lush greens, the #instaworthy icon to take that date photo at. Not to mention the incomprehensible number of restaurants, café, shops, eateries to choose from. If your date can’t decide on one, roll a 20-sided die. There’s no fear of running out of entertainment here, plenty of lounging spaces, and there’s even a cinema! Isn’t it better than hopping around town, when you can just hop around the same place indefinitely without getting bored?
