I visited Singapore for the first time in three and a half years. Actually, I used to live in Singapore for one and a half year to attend a business school. A reunion was held in Singapore, so that’s why I came back there. This times, I spent about a week going around Singapore to take as many photos as possible. In this article, I will write about flying back home with Singapore Airlines from Changi Airport as part of Day 8.

Finally, it was the 8th day of my Singapore trip. I will return to Japan today.
Singapore Changi Airport
My flight time was around 2 p.m., but I moved to Changi Airport earlier to go around the airport.
Singapore Changi Airport, which was opened in 1981, is the international airport in Singapore and one of the largest hub airports in Asia. Changi Airport has received a lot of awards since its opening, including the latest ”Skytrax World Airport Awards”.
There are three terminals in Changi Airport and flights between Singapore and Tokyo with Singapore Airlines were allocated to Terminal 3 (FYI: Japan Airlines uses Terminal 1 and All Nippon Airways uses Terminal 2). In addition, Terminal 4 will be opened in 2017. Now I will walk around Changi Airport.
To begin with, departure lobby.
I bought some souvenirs at Bee Cheng Hiang.
Bee Cheng Hiang, which sells mainly beef jerky and pork jerly, operates in Singapore and its surround countries. It has recently opened its store in Ginza, Tokyo since this September.
I checked in at Singapore Airlines counter.
As I mentioned in the first article of this Singapore series, I will use Business Class.
After passing the Immigration Control, I strolled around duty free shop area.
This is Singapore Food Street, which is open for 24 hours.
The following photos were taken at the transit area.
I stopped by Singapore Airlines’s SilverKris Lounge.
SQ Flight 634 Business Class
Now I moved to the departure gate.
My return flight was SQ flight 634.
I looked around to find lots of Japanese, so I realized I was going back to Japan.
Anyway, I was going on board.
The aircraft of my flight from Tokyo to Singapore (SQ flight 631) was Boeing 777-300 ER while that of my return flight (SQ 634) was Boeing 777-300, an older model. The seating configuration was 2-2-2, and I chose one of the middle seats as I traveled alone. In the return flight, I used the “Book the Cook” to order my meal in advance.
Singapore Sling and nuts.
For the main dish, I ordered “Nonya Nasi Padang” from the Book the Cook.
It was a Peranakan version of Indonesian Nasi Padang.
I was already full, but there was an ice cream for dessert.
Cheese and fruits.
Now I arrived at Haneda Airport.
When I saw this board, I realized I came back to in Japan.
That’s it for the article about flying back home with Singapore Airlines from Changi Airport as part of Day 8. To sum up my Singapore trip, I recognized again what an interesting country Singapore is. I found several new shopping malls and restaurants while I found Singapore Airlines and Changi Airport were fantastic as ever. I hope as many people as possible will have interests in Singapore through my blog 🙂
Regarding my next travel, I will be traveling soon. My next destination is Ehime prefecture where my favorite “Mican” serves as its local mascot character (“Yuru-chara”) and where Yuru-chara Grand Prix 2016 will be held. So, if you are interested in “Yuru-chara”, please stay tuned.
