It was way back in 2013 when we first learned that an enormous new lifestyle hub known as Jewel Changi Airport will be constructed in front of Changi Airport Terminal 1. Ever since then, we have been eagerly following the news of its development into a world-class retail and dining space. Now, we’re so excited to learn that Jewel will finally open in just about a month, on 17 April 2019!
Singapore residents are invited to take a exclusive first look at Jewel before it officially opens to the world, during the special preview period from 11 to 16 April. The previews will be divided into four three-hour time blocks from 10am to 10pm on each of the six days, starting from 1pm on 11 April.
You can be one of the lucky first few to check out the space, and even start shopping and dining at the new outlets – simply sign up for your ticket now! Tickets are free of charge but limited to about 500,000, so do hurry and book your spot now, because tickets are going fast. At the time of writing, three dates are already fully snapped up, leaving three more dates: 12, 15, and 16 April.
You can register for up to four tickets including yourself, so gather your family and friends to share the experience together!
For anyone thinking, “What’s so special about Jewel Changi Airport that I should want to get an early sneak peek?”, maybe an overview of what to expect in the lifestyle destination can give you the push you need.
More than 280 shopping and dining outlets will be housed in Jewel, and guests at the preview will be able to shop and dine at over 90% of them! The retail brands are some of our international favourites; they include the largest Nike store in Southeast Asia, Marks & Spencer, Muji, Zara, Uniqlo (their second biggest store in Singapore), Coach, Foot Locker, and an Apple store. Movie lovers will also be pleased to know that Jewel will also have a huge Shaw Theatres IMAX cinema. And Pokémon fans, this one’s for you: Jewel will also be home to the first Pokémon Centre outside of Japan!
Foodies have also much to be excited about. A big number of famous international eateries will be coming to Jewel Changi Airport, some for the first time in our country. Iconic American burger chain Shake Shack, London’s Burger & Lobster, and Norway’s salmon-centric restaurant Pink Fish are just a few of the restaurant chains making their Singapore debut at Jewel. The new space will also see the much-anticipated return of fast-food chain A&W to our shores!
In addition to giving us local residents a shiny new place to shop and eat to our heart’s content, Jewel Changi Airport will also serve as a major tourist destination, attracting travelers to stop by in Singapore. And what a statement the design of the space will make for foreigners about our unique identity as a cosmopolitan and green city.
Jewel will feature a range of eye-catching attractions under its lattice dome-shaped “jewel” roof. Guests at the preview will get to enjoy many of them before the crowds arrive!
At the heart of the space is a magnificent Rain Vortex, an indoor waterfall said to be the tallest in the world, pouring down from 40 metres high. Surrounding this waterfall is the Forest Valley, a lush indoor garden spanning four storeys with two walking trails flanked by a huge variety of plants from all over the world.
Need a different kind of therapy besides shopping and eating? The Canopy Park, located on Jewel’s top floor, is a wonderful place to unwind. It’s like a giant playground for all ages, with lots of fun recreational features such as a bouncing net, a walking net, and a hedge maze. Perfect for when you want to keep your children entertained, let loose your own inner child, or just take a break and get lost in the beauty of nature.
We hope we have convinced you by now to share our excitement over Jewel Changi Airport. Here’s an artist’s impression-based preview video to amp up the hype even more:
