Singapore airport opens street hawker-style food court
Singapore’s Changi Airport has introduced a Singapore Food Street offering food from some popular hawker stalls.
Singapore’s Changi Airport has rounded up some of the most popular local street hawkers for a new food court that will feature the nation’s favorite foods, giving flyers another reason to arrive early for their flight.
While most airports are seen as merely hubs and transit centers for flyers, Changi Airport has succeeded in becoming a destination in and of itself, with a slew of innovative services and amenities that have helped it win the title of World’s Best Airport for two years running.
After watching a movie, strolling in the butterfly and orchid gardens, taking a heart-pumping ride down the 12-meter airport slide or waking from a quick siesta, flyers can now wander down to Singapore Food Street in Terminal 3.
