One of the main attractions of Singapore’s Changi Airport, is that even though you are passing through the tiny island, you will be able to explore the sights and sounds of Singapore with one of the free tours. If your stop over is over 5.5 hours and less than 24 hours, you will be able to embark upon either the Heritage Tour or the City Sights Tour.
The Heritage Tour will take you through Singapore’s past and present, as you visit Chinatown, Little India, Kampong Glam and with a short stopover in Merlion Park, where you can take a photograph with the symbol of Singapore. The City Sights Tour showcases modern Singapore. You’ll see the magnificent cityscape and world-class attractions such as the Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands and the Esplanade, all light up in their night lights.
