Suggestion for 12hour Layover at SG

The issue is I have a 12-hour layover at Singapore. I arrive 12mn and fly-off 12nn.


a. Marina Bay Sands (using SSH) it would be costing around $345 SGD but at least I can enjoy the amenities of MBS (i.e., Casino, Bars, etc) - which this is the only thing I could possibly do at this time of the night..

b. Crowne Plaza Hotel Changi Airport - they have discounts now if I book early. Would cost me around $300 SGD. Maybe a good relaxation and I don't have to worry about rushing through my 12nn flight..

Though my friend suggested I should just sleep at Airport Lounge since its not too costly but i have to kill 12 hours inside the airport? maybe that would be a horrible experience..

you may book a room at one of the transit hotels located in T1, T2 and T3 airside: harilelahospitality.com/transit_hotel_roomra…

Try to get a room at the transit hotel at T3, it is the most recent one. Make a reservation to be sure to get a room.

Changi airport is a great airport and killing time is very easy, they have for exemple free internet stations and movie theaters.

If you have already your boarding pass for your next flight you might consider leaving the airport to visit the city and then come back at the airport to rest in the transit hotel. BUT as the transit hotel is airside you NEED your boarding pass to access it.

In the city you may visit Marina Bay Sand and the Merlion park, Clarke Quay, Mustafa a shopping centre opened 24h in Little India.

I will also have a 12 hour gap between flight next year. I will book the transit hotel this time. In the past when have had at least 18-24 hours I stayed at the crown plaza- which I just love. it is so good to wake up and roll your suitcase to the departure area. No taxi, no rush. But for less hours I do not see the need to waste my money. The airport is amazing- you will have plenty to do and as mentioned before you can leave and explore. Check out the airports web page and discover the amenities available.
