SINGAPORE- #Joeyjios: Here’s how you can spend 24 hours at Jewel Changi Airport

Changi Airport’s sprawling new Jewel is home to over 280 retail and dining options spread out across a massive 10-storey building.

Not just another cookie-cutter mall, every brand there has upped their ante, promising an experience that cannot be mirrored anywhere else on the island.

Whether it’s offering localised, Jewel-exclusive items on the menu (Starbucks), making a grand comeback (A&W) or being the biggest store in Southeast Asia (Nike), it’s a mall unlike any other.

With so much to see, eat and do, we reckon that even 24 hours at Jewel won’t be enough, and it seems like the folks at Changi Airport agree.

We reckon you can spend 24 hours just at @ChangiAirport alone.

Still hungry? Grab a bowl of Poke or two at the first Pink Fish store outside Norway.

Using only Norwegian salmon in their menu, Pink Fish dropped a surprise side dish for us that’s not available even in their origin country of Norway — salted-egg fish skin.

Tummies satisfied? Good. At Jewel, size matters, and bigger is better.

While you’re digesting, check out the largest Nike store in Southeast Asia and India, as well as the first Zara in the East (as told to me by an Eastie).

AFTERNOON

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the most hyped-about stores Jewel has to offer.

NYC’s famed burger joint, Shake Shack, has landed in Singapore, and we understand why all our blessed friends who managed to taste it overseas went gaga when news broke that it was coming to town.

The one thing all your friends rave about on trips to London, Jewel’s Burger and Lobster is another first in Singapore, and one that you can finally taste for yourself without leaving the country.

Price TBC but estimated to be $35. Photo: AsiaOne/ Joey Lee

Before you get too excited and head down though, take note that renovations for the store are still underway and business will only officially open in May 2019.

Wanna catch em’ all? Word of caution: you might want to do so after the hype over the world’s first Pokemon Centre outside Japan has died down.

NIGHT & THE WEE HOURS

You’ve gotta give it to the folks at Jewel — they’ve brought an entire forest experience indoors AND air-conditioned it for visitors who would’ve otherwise wilt in our tropical heat.

Open daily round the clock, the highlight includes a 40-metre Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall that has a night show from 8.30pm to 12.30am at hourly intervals.

Fear not if you happen to drop by Jewel at an unearthly hour. There’s a bevy of things to check out in the wee hours of the night.

For those with a serious case of the late night munchies, Five Spice is a food court operated by Food Junction that’s open 24-hours daily.

Wanna-be Pokemon trainers weren’t the only ones in a long queue yesterday. After making an exit in 2003 and leaving us for 16 years, A&W is back with a 24-hour joint for us to relieve all our ’90s memories.

With a menu that includes bestsellers from outlets around the world, word is, waiting times went up to more than an hour on the first day of public previews.

Set prices listed include curly fries and root beer. Photo: AsiaOne/ Joey Lee

We’ll definitely be back to try their Cream Cheese Chicken burger inspired from Okinawa’s A&W.

Changi is not the world’s best airport for nothing. In addition to 24-hour movie theatres in Terminals two and three, they’ve opened up one more in Jewel.

Looking to kill a few hours before a red-eye flight? Watching a movie there means two hours of time gone — three if you decide to catch Avengers: End Game.

Simply need a space to freshen up or rejuvenate yourself? For $20++ an hour, guests can make use of the 24-hour shower package which also provides access to the gym.

Come June 2019, the 14,000 sqm canopy park (the size of 11 Olympic-size swimming pools) on the top floor of Jewel will be fully opened.

Highlights include the Sky Nets, Canopy Mazes and Discovery Slides, suitable for both children and overgrown kids.

We’re most excited about the Sky Nets (pictured)!

Because Jewel’s so huge, here’s a map in case you get lost.

With Terminal five in the works, we can’t wait to see how Changi Airport is going to outdo themselves again.
