15 Fun and Free Things to Do at Jewel Changi Airport

A video went around social media about two guys who spent four days at the Jewel Changi Airport out of curiosity if they would get kicked out or not. While this is something we would not recommend for anyone to do (for security reasons, obviously), it left us wondering about the different fun things you can do in the world’s number one airport.

From watching free movies to enjoying some of Singapore’s airport accommodation, we have listed 15 fun (and mostly free) stuff to do at the Jewel Changi Airport:
