Just whatever you do DON’T get stuck in the landside area of the terminals. I had a flight arriving at the budget terminal at 3am so decided to head over to one of the other terminals to wait until daybreak. It was horrible. There wasn’t even so much as a comfortable chair or power point to charge my laptop. Hardly anything was open. It was a great letdown after hearing of the wonders of changi airport.
