The Best Ways to Survive an Overnight Layover in Singapore

Layovers are not the best options for many people. However, the flight itinerary may include one that cannot be escaped no matter what. Changi airport in Singapore is known to have layovers due to the logistics of the flights of people traveling to other Asian locations with Singapore airplanes. If you are lucky enough to be traveling to Singapore after securing your visa with reputable agents like Visa Express, then you will not have a layover. Some layovers are known to run for many hours including the whole night or day. So, how does one kill all these hours? Below is what to do in case you have an overnight layover in Singapore.

Napping and Sleeping

After a long flight from different regions of the globe, most travelers may want some sleep before they head for the next flight. Changi airport does have easily accessible napping stations for travelers. The stations are offered subject to availability, and therefore, you need to check if you are lucky enough to find an open one.

For a more peaceful and restful sleep, getting a room in one of the many transit hotels or guest homes around the airport is also another option. This, however, will depend on the budget one is running under.

Free Tour

Courtesy of Changi airport, travelers on transit can have one of the two available free tours. They include either city lights tours or the famous heritage free tours. They use air-conditioned buses and a well-trained tour guide who will offer great information about the country. For selfie photographers and vloggers, you can get a few minutes stop-over at various tourist centers like Esplanade and Marina Bay to do some shooting.

The city lights tours are the best for the overnight layover because the tours run in the evening. People will have the opportunity to glimpse the Singapore nightlife, which will help you breathe some fresh air outside the airport.
