The Rain Vortex at the Jewel at Changi International Airport in Singapore is Mesmerizing

The Rain Vortex at the Jewel at Changi International Airport in Singapore is mesmerizing. It was the first “tourist attraction” I’ve seen in Singapore. A friend picked me up at the airport and despite carrying my 14-kg backpack, we took a short bus ride to The Jewel.

The Jewel is a nature-themed zone filled with shopping malls, restaurants, and entertainment emporiums.

And at the heart of it is the Rain Vortex that collects, what else, rain water.

The collected water then passes through the gigantic vessel that creates a waterfall illusion.

How about a romantic date at the airport – by the Rain Vortex?

This is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall!

It cascades down at 40 meters – all the way to Basement 2!

As you can see, the cascade is surrounded by a lush forest. Nope, they’re not fake or plastic flora! They’re real, dude, real! 😀

One of the things I like here is that I can sit in a restaurant or cafe nearby and enjoy the view.

But, I think, visiting the rain vortex at night is the best time to go.

The colours add magic to its structural beauty and the surrounding areas become a romantic place for a date.

Watching the light and sound show is a must – for a total and magical experience you’d never find anywhere in the world.

Where to Stay in Singapore

Singapore is an expensive country. Fortunately for me, I have a friend who offered one of the rooms in her apartment. Since staying in hotels are expensive, the best option for budget travelers is, of course, hostels. You can book them via BookingExpediaHostelWorld, and TripAdvisor.
