JEWEL Changi Airport Craze: Is it over-rated?

Updated: Nov 12, 2019

JEWEL Changi Airport is the latest happening attraction in Singapore that has it's doors officially to the public on 17 April 2019. Prior to the launch, there has already been a great hype on the preview tickets as many Singaporeans want to be the first to see Jewel, to the extent that some complimentary preview tickets were being sold on Carousell! Long queues snake from all the restaurants and cafes, and the question that many would ask --- Is this place over-rated or is it really going to beat Esplanade, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay as the most iconic attraction in Singapore?

Well, that's debatable and only time will tell, but in my opinion, this is another great milestone attraction in Singapore's history to add some excitement for Singaporeans and tourists alike.

Now, let's lay out the Top things to SEE at Jewel!


#01 - Marvel at the World's Tallest Indoor Waterfall

Standing at 40 metres tall, this majestic centerpiece of Jewel, HSBC Rain Vortex, is overtaking the Cloud Forest waterfall in Gardens By the Bay which used to be the world's tallest indoor waterfall standing at 30 metres high. Singapore's architecture and tourism is indeed scaling to new heights, no pun intended.

In the day, you can capture the amazing lush greenery surrounding this giant vortex. But what's even more spectacular is the amazing light-and-sound show that is projected on the water, making the waterfall come alive!

This idyllic paradise is home to 900 trees and palms, and about 60,000 shrubs in the garden.
