The 1,35,000 square metre building (formerly a auto park), was designed by renowned Israeli architect Moshe Safdie.

The distinctive structure, designed by Moshe Safdie, includes 40m-tall indoor waterfall and 2,500 trees in addition to the hundreds of shops and eateries - all of it linked to three Changi Airport terminals.

Jewel started welcoming a limited number of visitors this week, and will open fully to the public next Wednesday.

Build on 135,700 sq.m at a cost of 1.7 billion SGD (1.25 billion USD), the four-storey Jewel complex has gardens, 280 retail and food outlets, a hotel and cinema.

The everyday airport is a frenetic, stress-filled place, so Jewel Changi aims to be a haven of calm while passengers wait for their flights.

As well as an attraction for visitors to Singapore, it is also billed as a destination in its own right for local residents. It is surrounded by manicured grounds of the Shiseido Forest Valley.

In any case, it was stated that the preview of the Jewel Changi Airport will only run for six days from April 11 to Aprill 16. Play attractions such as the Manulife Sky Nets, Hedge Maze, Mirror Maze and Discovery Slides were created to blend into the unique indoor garden environment and will open to the public in June this year. This brought the airport's total capacity to 85 million, ensuring that it remains well placed to support the growth of air travel in the region. Visitors seeking more action can take a leap on the bouncing net and discover the 8-metre high lookout point that features an aerial view of the entire Canopy Park.

The Changi Airport was bestowed Skytrax World's Best Airport in March 2019 for the seventh consecutive year.
