Things-To-Do When You're Stuck In Changi Airport

This is a continuation of The 19-hour Travel Nightmare post. 
To better understand my story, click here first! :)

On our second lay-over in Singapore, Ed and I spent the night at Ambassador Transit Hotel just as planned. When I woke up the next day, I hoped the travel nightmare was merely just a nightmare. Then, reality came rushing and slapped me on the face! We're stuck in Changi Airport!! Ouch!  So, you think Ed and I would sulk at the corner, weeping and drying each other's tears? Nope, we're better than that! We came up with a Plan B! :) We grabbed some guide books and created an epic impromptu itinerary INSIDE Changi Airport!

Being stuck in an airport may sound horrible, well not if you're in Changi! I departed Singapore and arrived in Dubai with a relaxed mind and a smile on my face! Oh and a happy pocket too as all attractions are free and the food are very affordable! :) I do love Changi Airport, but once is enough. Never again shall I spend 19 long hours inside an airport terminal. I've learned a lesson from the travel nightmare that I have created myself. I hope you did as well. 


  1. Sayang, we did not roam around Changi Airport the last time we went to Singapore. What is also admirable are the employed senior citizens who are given the opportunity to still work and earn some cash for themselves.

  2. That was a very good alternative after you failed from plan A. I didn't realized that there are so much to do in Changi Airport. That airport is simply amazing. World class! :)

  3. wow... parang staycation lang but only so much better. kudos to you and your husband for not wallowing inside your hotel room. haha! sulit nga naman because you were able to explore the attractions the airport had to offer.

  4. wow! parang hindi naman boring ma stranded sa changi airport maraming dapat gawin.. the place is worth exploring...

  5. Wow! Now, that's a great airport. Truly made to make travellers at ease even if they get stuck there. Lots of activities, even my kids won't get bored.

  6. With all the attractions they have right inside the airport, it looked like you had a free tour also. :-) Not really that bad being stuck for hours seeing that there are so many things to keep you entertained.

  7. Is it all for free? I like Plan Bs, most of the time, it outdo the Plan A.

    1. Yes, there are no fees for the attractions. :)

  8. Ayun naman pala, lots of free activities to explore while stuck in Changi. Siguro kung kami yun, natulog lang kami. hehe. thanks for sharing this (mis)adventure with us!

  9. wow naman! okey lang din pala ma stuck sa Changi Airport! Marami pa ring happenings! :)

  10. Ay ang sarap all your food! You had fun after all - yay! Hmm, I wonder what would have happened if you were stuck in the NAIA? :P

  11. Not bad na din sis. Changi Airport is full of sites to see and for free pa. I will keep this all in my mind. As if we will travel to Singapore no. Hehe

  12. i was waiting for this post hihi! so, eto pala nangyari sa inyo when you were stuck in Changi Airport. Not bad after all. and all free! so nice! looks like you really enjoyed your stay inside the airport. I remember when we went to Singapore, i was in awe at how beautiful their airport was. although we were not able to roam around, i knew it was nice. and your pictures and this post proved my assumption. thanks for sharing! :-)

  13. Wow! i dont know that SG has a nice aiport, hindi pa kasi ako nkakapunta. hehehe
