A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

Sometimes you get invited to enjoy high tea with a great view… all the way from the 70th floor.

Checking some of the little perks from Singapore offer off my list.

I got the chance to have a sneak peek into the soon to open Jewel at Changi Airport.

The one-of-a-kind lifestyle destination, 135,700 sqm complex, built on the site of the former Terminal 1 open-air carpark, is designed by world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie [who also designed Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands Ed.] and features a distinctive dome-shaped façade. It will offer both local residents and international visitors a multi-faceted experience that includes attractions, unique shopping, and dining concepts, as well as airport and accommodation facilities. “The vision for Jewel Changi Airport is to be a destination where ‘The World meets Singapore, and Singapore meets the World”.

The majestic 40-metre HSBC Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall is the piece de resistance of the Jewel. But there’s a lot more to see…the Forest Valley, an indoor garden spanning five storeys; and Canopy Park at the topmost level, featuring gardens and leisure facilities. The complex is spanning 10 storeys – five storeys above-ground and five basement storeys.

Contrary to the Pre-Visit of the terminal 4 last year this was a little bit chaotic and there were a LOT of people. I will go back in a few weeks (and in the middle of the week) to appreciate it more.

12-Apr-2022: D-68 before departure

I had forgotten that I got the chance to go to the pre opening of the Jewel. Barely a year later I was even allowed to go greet people at the airport. I’m going to miss Changi airport, we usually could make it home 45mn after landing, and we are a 30-mn ride away.

~~~Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot. PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!!~~~
