Singapore's Changi Airport touts the world's highest indoor waterfall

Singapore's Changi airport has long been asked as the "best airport in the world." That status is even more cemented on April 17, when it officially opens a dazzling presecurity attraction known as Jewel.

Inside is a lush four-step tiered garden, more than 280 shops and eateries, a hotel, a multi-screen IMAX theater and its centerpiece: one 130 feet tall rain vortex, the world's highest indoor waterfall.

The next phase of the project rolls out in June, when Jewel Changi Airport opens a package of extra features (many tickets) to the public, including a 1[ads1]64-foot glass bottom, net for jumping and walking, mazes, top sculptures and more. [19659004] Inside a tooth-shaped or down-shaped glass and steel construction designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, Jewel Changi Airport is next to Terminal 1 and sits on real estate that was previously a parking lot. "The striking new structure now covers more than 1.46 million square feet. It has 10 stories – across the earth and five under – and was built on a budget, at a cost of $ 1.7 billion in Singapore.

" Not just will Jewel strengthen Singapore Changi Airport offers, "said Jewel CEO Hung Jean during a preview of the space," it will also boost Singapore as an attractive tourist destination. "
