Take a tour of the best airport in the world

Singapore’s Changi Airport, voted world’s best airport in 2015, is the amusement park of travel hubs.

The airport’s attractions include innovative art installations, a swimming pool, cactus and orchid gardens, a movie theatre, and an entertainment complex with free video games. It’s a layover paradise.

In December, Tech Insider named Changi Airport in its top 10 list of the most innovative airports around the world. Take a look inside to see why.

If you've travelled through an airport at some point in your life, you know these travel hubs are stress-inducing, inconvenient, and downright annoying.

There's at least one airport that's gotten it right: Changi Airport, located in Singapore.

Most airports serve Starbucks and bitter coffee served in paper cups.

Changi Airport puts a little more love into their lattés.

Your reservation comes with a complimentary meal.

The package also comes with access to a luxury bathroom. It contains a rain shower, restroom facilities, a wash basin, and a built-in hairdryer.

The nap room and other sweet perks lie inside The Haven, a pay-per-use lounge located in the airport's public area. It costs about $25 for two hours, $37 for five hours.
