Most of the time, people get bored at the mention of airport hotels. But not if it is Singapore’s airport hotel, or better known as Crowne Plaza Hotel. Located at Terminal 3 of the Changi International Airport, Crowne Plaza Hotel is anything but boring-looking.
Chasing planes is always a thrill that adds on to the entire travel experience, and this was what we used to enjoy, until we got spoilt by Changi Airport and decided we all need a travel ritual to kickstart a true blue holiday.
No two airports are identical, and for that, Changi Airport is outstanding and amongst the best in the world. A holiday actually begins at Changi Airport, because our award-winning international airport has an enthralling list of offerings that makes it all worthwhile to check-in early so as to enjoy the facilities and amenities to its best.
Need to fill your tummy? The F&B options cater to different taste buds and time allowances. Whether you are rushing for a flight and need a quick take-out, or looking for a cosy diner to enjoy a meal with family and friends who are sending you off, there are plenty of options in both the public and transit areas.
And if you need to pick up duty-free items, the shopping is so irresistible that we strongly advise putting aside more time for some retail therapy. From perfumes and cosmetics, to books and electronics, you can find everything you need at Changi Airport.
Here is a guide to Changi Airport, featuring some of our favourite dining options, places to go, and things to see at the World’s best airport.
My quest to find the best tonkatsu brought me to Saboten at Changi Airport Terminal 1.
I’ve always wanted to try Saboten after hearing so much about it. Many people have been telling me that it is their favourite tonkatsu restaurant in Singapore. I am embarrassed that it took me so long to go there, but I am happy to say that I finally had the chance to drop by to sample some of the signature items on the menu.
The question now is, does Saboten have the best tonkatsu in Singapore?
The giveaway is now closed. Thank you for participating. The winners are #401, #254, #15, #198, and #152. I will be contacting you via email shortly after.

I have been traveling a lot recently, and it gives me a new perspective about everything.
Each time I visit a new airport, I can’t help but to compare it with Singapore Changi Airport. The outcome is always the same — very few airports in the world can match Singapore Changi Airport in terms of efficiency and facilities. I think many of us always take things for granted; we complain about this, and grumble about that. But we are very fortunate to be living in one of the finest cities in the world.
