SINGAPORE — Visitors to Jewel Changi Airport can enjoy a new light and sound show at its indoor waterfall, set to a tune featuring Singaporean Mandopop singer JJ Lin.
This – and a new walking tour within the attraction – were unveiled on Friday (18 October) at the attraction’s opening officiated by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, six months after it opened its doors to the public.
The new show will be set to “As I Believe” composed by JJ Lin, with lyrics penned by Dick Lee and arrangement by music director Goh Kheng Long. The first two shows – Magic Wedding and Arrival to Earth – were launched in April.
During the show, the 40-metre HSBC Rain Vortex will “highlight the movement of the water and plays with the audience’s perception of reality”, said Jewel.
It will play three times nightly from Saturday to 14 November at 7.30pm, 9.30pm and 11.30pm, and subsequently two times per night at 8.30pm and 10.30pm from 15 November to 5 January.
Tourists with a minimum 5.5-hour layover and relevant visa approvals can also enjoy a 2.5-hour walking tour within Jewel, organised in partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board and Singapore Airlines, to get a taste of what Singapore has to offer.
The free tour will be led by an experienced guide and will let travellers have a closer look at the attraction’s architecture, sample local food dishes, and gain free entry to Jewel’s Canopy Park.
Close to 100 per cent of its 53,600sqm nett lettable area has been leased, said Jewel. 14 new stores have opened since April, including Burger & Lobster and Apple’s second Singapore store.
Jewel welcomes as many as 300,000 visitors a day, the attraction added.
“Since Jewel opened its doors to the public in April, operations have gone into full swing with Jewel recording a footfall of about 50 million from both local and foreign visitors in the first six months,” said Jewel Changi Airport Development CEO Hung Jean.
Jewel also said that 35 airlines, serving close to 80 per cent of all departing passengers at Changi Airport, now offer early check-in kiosks at Jewel. They include Cathay Pacific, the Jetstar Group and Malaysia Airlines.
On average, 1,500 passengers use these facilities daily, checking in close to 1,100 pieces of baggage, Jewel added. Two new-check-in kiosks have been added this month.
