Sin­ga­pore Changi Air­port has been named as the World’s Best Air­port by air trav­el­ers for the sixth con­sec­u­tive year at the 2018 Sky­trax World Air­port Awards, held at Pas­sen­ger Ter­mi­nal EXPO in Stockholm, Swe­den. This is the ninth time the Sin­ga­pore air­port has won the top in­ter­na­tional ti­tle since 2000. The air­port was also named the best for leisure ameni­ties.

The air­port was also named the best for leisure ameni­ties. Changi Air­port is very fo­cused on mak­ing the air­port ex­pe­ri­ence com­fort­able and con­ve­nient and con­tin­ues to in­no­vate with new prod­uct and ser­vices fea­tures.

What makes it the best in the world? Per­haps it’s the rooftop pool with a jacuzzi or its mul­ti­tude of gar­dens: or­chid, but­ter­fly, sun­flower, cac­tus, water lily, and “en­chanted,” just to name a few. Or per­haps it’s the movie theater, XBox 360 sta­tion, or ki­netic art in­stal­la­tion of 1,216 alu­minum and cop­per rain­drops. Then there’s the food—so much food! Dozens of gourmet restau­rants, six ex­pan­sive din­ing halls in­clud­ing one that spe­cial­izes in Sin­ga­porean street food, and one

Hello Kitty Or­chid Gar­den Café. That is, if trav­el­ers even need to waste time eat­ing. Lux­ury and trendy stores are all around, like Vuit­ton, Saint Lau­rent, Her­mès, and not one, but three dif­fer­ent Adidas shops.

And it doesn’t look like Changi will re­lin­quish its crown any­time soon. Ac­cord­ing to Bloomberg, it’s work­ing on adding a fifth ter­mi­nal as well as a “shop­ping-and-din­ing fa­cil­ity called the Jewel as pas­sen­gers in­crease.”
