That's why it's voted second best airport in the world, due mainly to customer convenience.

Which is not a lot, going by past standards.

Highly unlikely.......especially after the millions they spend on upgrading T2......

i think terminal 2 will look pretty good after upgrading! quite different from other airports too! other airports go for the spacious, cool, airy, cavernous look. terminal 2 looks very cosy and homely. terminal three seems more akin to the standard look, but with plenty more greenery.

I agree about T2

after the makeover, it feels like a totally new airport..it has more airiness and light, yet is still very warm and lush.

in fact, after seeing the new Shanghai Pudong Airport, Guanzhou Baiyun airport and the arrival portion of Chep Lap Kok, I still feel that T2 beats them all in that warm lively feeling.

Yes....I agree......Shanghai Pudong is modern but a bit "cold"(seen it like half an hour ago).....a trend that most new airport shares....

cool!

yah it is nice and airy, but not as convenient or helpful for shopping. I wanted to buy batteries in the departure lounge and they dont sell! None of the staff also really helped to tell me where they sell it (I guess they just dont know)

on the plus side, you can just smoke in the Cafe there. In fact you can just light up at restaurants in China j/k

Changi is better
