A white Christmas that involves Anna, Elsa, and Olaf – and one that doesn’t involve travelling to Erinsborough or beyond to enjoy? It’s possible at Singapore’s Jewel Changi Airport.
You’re just a hop, skip and an eight-hour flight away from experiencing a truly magical, white Christmas as Changi Airport becomes a Frozen Wonderland. If you’re planning to visit relatives in Europe or beyond, and you’re flying through Changi – this incredible installation will allow the kids to stretch their legs and their imagination.
That’s right mums – you can get the white Christmas experience without freezing your baubles off. It’s a win-win!
The world’s best airport just got better
Singapore’s Jewel Changi Airport has already been crowned the World’s Best Airport. Inside you will find a butterfly garden, a giant slide, a pool, a sunflower garden and a movie theatre. But the crown jewel of Singapore Changi is Jewel. This 10-storey indoor garden, which opened in June this year, features a 40-metre-high “Rain Vortex” the world’s largest indoor waterfall, a forest of 2000 trees and top-notch dining and retail outlets.
And for a limited time, it’s all going Frozen. Yes, this Christmas, all of Changi Airport’s terminals will be transformed into Elsa and Anna’s Frozen Christmas wonderland. This festive addition is sure to jingle your bells and delight little travellers. It’s inspired by the magic of Frozen 2 (in cinemas 28 November) which means you can guarantee your Anna-and Elsa-loving kids are going to be ALL for it.
Different terminals will have different experiences. You can visit one if you are in a rush, or take your time and visit them all. Jewel Changi airport has incredibly easy and fast connections between each of the terminals.
