Jewel Playground’s Best Feature
For an airport playground, The Jewel Playground’s best feature would definitely be the Canopy Park itself. Its different facets each have their own speciality that evokes different reactions. There’s one catered to children, another for adults, and another one that spans across age groups. As the Changi Airport says, it’s truly a playground for everyone.
Why We Like It
There are so many places you can explore, activities to do, and food and beverages to try in this airport that the initial anxiety that it usually brings can be forgotten.
Kids, adults, and seniors can find spaces for themselves while accomplishing what they need to do at the airport. But there are also instances where people who don’t even have scheduled flights go here just for its amenities like the Jewel Playground!
Waiting can be dragging, frustrating, and tiring, especially in the context of an airport. Head to the Jewel Playground to unwind and enjoy! You might also like the IMM Playground too!
