You won’t loath a layover when you land at this airport. In fact some visitors make a purposeful stop, just to see the star attraction – The Rain Vortex. This water tunnel literally rains from the atrium into the airport to help control the temperature of the unique greenhouse. But if that’s not up to your snuff, they also have sky walks, slides, and some very friendly robots.

Koon Seng Road

Known as the country’s most colorful street, these pastel properties are a quintessential aspect of Singapore’s streetscape. Known as Peranakan Shophouses, they traditionally belonged to wealthy traders who flaunted their success in the ornate designs on their facades.

Jinrikisha Station

There was once a day where the streets of Singapore were filled with carriages drawn not by horses, but by men. Known as rickshaws, these carriages were cheaper than keeping horses and rose quickly in popularity. Needing a place to serve as a registration depot, this station was created. As trishaws – or carriages pulled by bike – rose in popularity, the station was converted and later purchased by Hong Kong movie star Jackie Chan.
