Changi International Airport - The Unofficial Airports Guide

Shopping and Eating at Changi International Airport in Singapore

One of the things that keeps Changi at the top of the list of people's favorite airports is the amazing array of shopping and dining opportunities that the airport affords. The airport at times appears to be more of a shopping mall than an airport, but that's what it takes to stay at the top of the list.

Shops in both the public and transit areas include bookstores, a florist, pharmacy and sportswear shops. Food options include fast food from Burger King, Delifrance and McDonald's; restaurants serving a whole world of cuisines; and coffee from Starbucks, Cofee Bean and Pacific Coffee. There is also a 24-hour food court in every terminal.

The duty free shopping at Changi Airport is among the best in the world, and significantly outclasses just about every other airport in Southeast Asia. There is not only an ample selection of the standard duty free items of booze, cigarettes and perfume, but also a wide variety of other items. There are many small designer boutiques, electronics shops and even some traditional medicine stores.
