Since claiming the title of “World’s Best Airport” for the seventh straight year, Changi Airport in Singapore has officially opened its doors to the stunning new Jewel complex. The 137,000-square-meter space is an extension of the hub’s already luxurious amenities, and stakes its claim as having the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.

Jewel Changi Airport was designed by architect Moshe Safdie and features a dome-shaped structure made of steel and glass. The 10-floor building encompasses over 280 retailers, including restaurants, gardens, galleries, shops and a hotel. While familiar labels such as Nike and adidas have outposts in the division, other brands entering Singapore’s market for the first time have also opened stores, including OYSHO and Pokémon Center.

The centerpiece of the opening is the monumental HSBC Rain Vortex, which measures a soaring 40-meters high. It’s accompanied by other wildlife activities, such as the Manulife SkyNets trampoline, the Hedge Maze (Singapore’s largest) and the giant Discovery Slides.

“The vision for Jewel Changi Airport is to be a destination where ‘The World meets Singapore, and Singapore meets the World,’” said Hung Jean, CEO of Jewel Changi Airport Devt.

Singapore has also been lauded for its dining scene this year. Last month, the country’s esteemed Odette restaurant was named the top choice in Asia.
