Enjoy the relaxing ambience of the Balinese-themed swimming pool and poolside area operated by Harilela Hospitality Pte Ltd. Passengers staying at the Ambassador Transit Hotel may use the pool and Jacuzzi for free. Otherwise, a small fee of S$13.65 is charged to non-residents for the use of the swimming pool and Jacuzzi, including the use of the shower facilities, a towel and a complimentary non-alcoholic drink from the bar. The swimming pool is located at

This is not a public facility. It's part of the hotel, and admission is charged for outsiders. In Hong Kong, the swimming pool is also located at the airport hotel.
Changi also offers a free tour of Singapore for like two hours. HK doesn't have such program.

Yes, I've been on one of those transit tours during one of my visits earlier this year. They don't recommend people with less than 5 hours transit time to go, but the tour itself is very short. 2 hours includes the immigration transfer. The actual sightseeing is only about an hour.

Hong Kong is not a transit-oriented airport. We depend on end point traffic, which has a much larger economic impact as people will be out in the city spending.

Shanghai Pudong is good in terms of design. But in terms of service and facilities, the airport lacks that!

The design was innovative, but the execution was horrible. The building has aged terribly. It doesn't look like something from the 90s at all. Look at the corridor connecting it to the maglev. It's crumbling already. A closer inspection of the details inside the main terminal signals rather shoddy and careless finishings.

Hope that won't be the case with T3 of Beijing's Capiltal airport.

I didn't pay attention to the corridor you mentioned. I didn't took the maglev when I was there.

In general, Pudong's facilities are rather primitive, especially when it comes to restaurants. There are a whole lot of them at the end of that corridor next to the maglev. The terminal was supposed to look very nice, but I think the architect would not be too happy with the outcome.
