The modern and clean city is shown through its airport, the Changi Airport which is an example for the rest of the world. The airport can be found 20 km to the north east of the centre of Singapore, to the far east of the island.
You can sleep in!
Swimming pool, showers, computers with free internet and a cinema, make this a truly unique airport. And as well as all this, you can use the reclining chairs - which are more comfortable than many a hotel bed!
