It’s time for us to leave Singapore and head onwards to New Zealand.
There is a time delay on my blog because I’m busy on the hop, thngs to do, places to see, long flights to make etc …so these photos were taken just before Christmas in December 2011.
Today I’m taking you though just a tiny section of Singapore’s Changi Airport. The airport consists of three terminals, comected by a skytrain.
Each of the terminals are massive and I could never manage any part of them in my current state of immobility so we have arranged wheelchair assistance which starts at the check-in desk and will deliver us right to the door of the plane.
So far so good. We arrive early at the check-in desk and luckily it’s quiet so our check in baggage is sorted in no time at all.
Not only is the airport massive but Changi’s Christmas decorations are too… a Merlion, a zepplin and Tour Eiffel are amongst the many different things scooted past on our way to a special waiting area that is a little tucked out of sight from the rest of the airport .
From what I can make out this waiting area is only for wheel chair passengers (or people who need assistance for one reason or another) and unaccompanied minors.
For all it’s vastness I actually like Changi Aiport, it’s easy to negotiate and there are lots of spaces where they hold exhibits, displays etc. Some of the displays are interactive and others are not (but clearly the kids would have liked them to have been,judging by the amount of interest in the Angry Birds exhibit ). Here’s a quick tour…
