Crowne Plaza Changi Airport staycation

[ Sponsored ]

24 hours every day, 365 days every year, Changi Aiport never sleeps.
During our Crowne Plaza Changi Airport staycation (read Day 1 here), we could literally walk the Airport Terminals in our pyjamas but we are too conservative :p

As the world buzz around us, it feels serene for us to enjoy our slower weekend pace. Yup, as fun as relaxing (and delicious) as Boon Yee’s donuts πŸ™‚

We started the day with a marvelous breakfast at Crowne Plaza’s Azur.

Family time, bonding over fresh juices, omelette and muffins.

Kids help themselves to multiple servings of Azur’s delicious Tim Sum.

As we explore Changi Airport Terminals (1,2 and 3), this airport is always buzzing. Fantastic connections, both domestic and international, bring everyone to Changi Airport, inbound, outbound and transit. MRT, Skytrain and Taxis mean Changi Airport is always accessible.

We landed at Canopy, an indoor playground at Terminal 1. Entertainment and lifestyle options are listed at this link, and Canopy playground is Free πŸ™‚

After Canopy, we met up with our Disney friends back at T3. As it was the Christmas month, we had toy soldiers, Mickey and friends to raise the festive spirit. There was a giant bouncing castle to thrill the kids too!

Happiness is easy to achieve for our kids, just buy them a dozen Krispy Kreme donuts. Mummy and Daddy will be contented with just a cup of warm coffee πŸ™‚

Boon Kang is happy spotting the airplanes land and takeoff. He was telling us that the Jumbo planes make more splashes (and mist) when they land on the wet runway.

For those who like shopping (not necessary Mummy), iShopChangi offers you shopping experience from your keyboard. It certainly helps that Changi Airport absorbs 7% GST too!

One more thing about staycation at Crowne Plaza Changi Airport, everything is self-contained within the “lifestyle hub”! Entertainment, food, shopping, our itinerary was never affected by the weather πŸ™‚

Dinner at Paradise Inn. Simple cuisines to make our tummies happy.

Posing at Singapore’s Tourism office. Do take note this is not exactly a playground but the friendly staff allow us to pose with Ah Meng’s descendents and other famous Resorts World Sentosa attractions.

Kinetic Rain day or night, is always soothing. We end the evening with more slides at T3 πŸ™‚

Earlier in the day, we visited two HUGE pineapple house in Changi Airport Terminal 3 !

Spongebob Squarepants and his friends have anchored at T3.

Situated next to Departure gate, do catch the daily shows at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm and 9pm. More details here.
Pineapple house at Changi

If the kids have too much energy, ask them to replace the reindeers at the snow sleigh. As they pedal, Pineapple house’s roof will spin.

Look out for the ping pong balls, you can redeem them for Spongebob souvenirs πŸ™‚

In Santa Claus Village, kids can try to mail a letter to Santa. Sorry, Santa Claus does not have an email address yet :p

Inside the Pineapple house, kids love the periscopes, while adults find Spongebob’s loo amusing. For parents concerned about hygiene, no worries, this toilet’s sanitation standard is as good as Changi Airport’s.

Next, the bloggers were split into two groups. The transit area in Changi Terminal T1, 2 and 3 have different Christmas/Spongebob setup waiting for travellers to explore.

T3’s Italy, do not lean on the Tower !

T2 Transit’s Krabs did not appear please to be woken up be noisy kids πŸ™‚

In T1, we found poor Gary pulling Turkey’s Trojan house. Daddy was about to say “This horse is BIG” but he realised kids had run off in the direction of Spongebob ..

Someone has transplanted Russia’s Red Square to T2’s public area. Impressive !
There are some gigantic Russian dolls too.

Parents become porters ! While we bring the kids around the world via skytrains, kids started to get tired, and a little bit cranky.

We find the make shift strollers useful.

In one corner, someone show his appreciation for the king of fruit, Mr Durian.

Changi Airport’s annual Bouncing Castle is always popular, and we blogged about it in 2010.

But a bouncing castle at Bikini Bottom has got to be epic ! You can bounce at T3 Departure Row 11 with a $20 receipt (per child), and take note minimum height limit of 0.8m.

… more Spongebob activities to entertain the kids.

Looking at the first photo, spend $60 and you can buy a plush toy for $3.
** A new character is revealed every week.

Thank you Changi Airport for the invitation, we will definitely return for the bouncing castle. You can find more Spongebob photos on SengkangBabies Fanpage.
