Five years in the making, Terminal 4 (T4) recently made its debut with the latest cutting-edge technology.
Singaporeâ€™s Changi Airport may have won a string of accolades as the best in Asia and even the world, but it isnâ€™t one to rest on its laurels. Five years in the making, Terminal 4 (T4) recently made its debut with the latest cutting-edge technologyâ€”think fully automated check-in and computerized bag-drop countersâ€”and plenty of reasons for travelers to linger before their flights. In T4â€™s departure transit area, the Heritage Zone recreates the facades of Singapore shophouses and a series of old-school dining outlets that dish up some of the city-stateâ€™s favorite hawker fare. Then thereâ€™s a rotating roster of exhibits at the 24-hour Peranakan Gallery, an offshoot of the Peranakan Museum near Fort Canning Park.
