Jun 19th 2015 | lifestyle

Singapore Changi is already ranked as the world’s number one airport boasting a rooftop swimming pool, cinema and even butterfly garden but wait until you see what they are planning next.

The airport is set to spend £726million on unique features including an indoor forest with hiking trails, a 40-meter rain vortex which will fall from the roof and indoor tropical gardens. The work is set to be completed in 2018, with the development set to stimulate economic growth on a huge scale, increasing airport capacity to 24 million passengers a year from 17.7 million.

Speaking to CNN, Poh Li San, vice president of the Terminal 4 Program Management Office at Changi Airport Group said: 'We think we are sitting in a sweet spot in Changi. We are looking at the growth of the whole region with China, India, and Indonesia growing rapidly.' Jewel will have five storeys above ground and five below ground, with a total footprint of more than 1.4 million square feet.
