SINGAPORE: Five years in the making, Changi Airport’s latest extension is touted to be the Jewel in its crown – featuring a lush rainforest, 280 shops and a huge internal waterfall, all encased within a glistening glass dome.

Singapore’s airport has always been known as more than just a place to catch a flight, and visitors will be able to catch a movie in an 11-screen cineplex, buy Pokemon merchandise at the brand’s first official store outside of Japan and gawk at an indoor waterfall when Jewel opens its doors on Wednesday (Apr 17).

With its unique dome-shaped facade of glass and steel, the 10-storey complex will house more than 280 shops and eateries.
