If you have been toying with the idea of visiting Mongolia, you will be thrilled to know that MIAT Mongolian Airlines will operate a twice-weekly service between Ulaanbaatar and Singapore via Beijing. The route will utilise a 174-seat Boeing 737-800 aircraft in a two-class configuration. MIAT Mongolian Airlines is the fourth new carrier for Changi Airport this year, following Uzbekistan Airways and Spring Airways that launched flights in April and VietJet in May, while Ulaanbaatar becomes the third new city link this year, following Tashkent and Lanzhou.

Holiday-makers in Singapore will now be able to add another exotic destination to their “to-travel” list. Travellers will be drawn by Mongolia’s vast scenery and unspoilt wilderness, accented by snow-capped mountains and complemented by the renowned hospitable, nomadic culture of its people. Mongolia is also home to three UNESCO heritage sites and history-enthusiasts can relive the story of the legendary Genghis Khan, experiencing how the Mongols built the biggest medieval empire in the world.
MIAT Mongolian Airlines will operate at Changi Airport’s Terminal 3 on Wednesdays and Saturdays. If you are in need of a layover hotel in Changi Airport, be sure to check out my review of the Pool Suite at the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport.
The Qantas Singapore Lounge was one of the first airport lounges that I have ever stepped foot into - I used to have access to it on all my Australian flights as I was once a Gold Frequent Flyer on the Qantas Frequent Flyer program. While I did a small review of this beautiful space back in 2014 when it first opened, I felt the need to revisit this lounge since I actually do prefer it over the famous SilverKris Lounge which more Singaporeans have seen and grown to love.
Following the successful opening of The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck in Terminal 3 of Changi Airport, Emirates Leisure Retail is bringing in two more largely popular dining concepts (Pret A Manger and Hudsons Coffee) to international travellers at one of the world's best airport.
The SilverKris Lounge in Changi Airport is reserved for Star Alliance passengers travelling on Business and First Class (there are separate lounges within the lounge itself) as well as esteemed Solitaire PPS Club members. If you are a KrisFlyer Gold Elite (or Star Alliance Gold) member traveling in Economy or Premium Economy class, you will have to make your way down to the KrisFlyer Gold Lounge (which does not stock Champagne) instead. Check out my review of the SilverKris Lounge in Terminal 3 of the Singapore Changi Airport.
The Crowne Plaza Changi Airport has once again been voted as the World's Best Airport Hotel by international travellers in the World Airport Awards announced by Skytrax on 14 March 2017 at the Passenger Terminal Expo in Amsterdam, Netherlands.
Having leftover currency from a trip is a pertinent problem amongst travellers since it generally ends up in an envelope or a drawer somewhere.

Celebrity Chef Wolfgang Puck has just opened his third restaurant in Singapore - The Kitchen by Wolfgang Puck is now open in Terminal 3 of the Singapore Changi Airport. This is the first outlet by Emirates Leisure Retail (ELR) to open and the beautiful space offers travellers the option of dining from the all-day menu or a drink at the bar.
The Private Room is arguably the most exclusive airport lounge in the whole of Changi Airport. While the airport is home to many brilliant airport lounges (even paid ones like the Plaza Premium Lounge!), The Private Room is by far the most privileged one that I have visited. Having Star Alliance Gold will not even get you close to this lounge if you are not traveling on First Class. The Private Room is tucked away quietly inside the First Class Lounge of the SilverKris Lounge so yes, it is indeed a lounge within a lounge. Check out my first experience here!
Everyone knows the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport is the world's best airport hotel and so imagine the look on everyone's faces when I told them that the best transit hotel in Changi Airport is the Aerotel Singapore. It is important to note that the Aerotel Singapore is a transit hotel - this means to say that the hotel is well, within the transit area of the Changi Airport.
Awarded the World's Best Airport Hotel by the Skytrax World Airport Awards in 2015 and 2016, the Crowne Plaza Changi Airport in Singapore has announced the opening of a new 10-storey extension which adds 243 new Business Rooms to the property.
