Singapore’s Changi Airport may have won a string of accolades as the best in Asia and even the world, but it isn’t one to rest on its laurels. Five years in the making, Terminal 4 (T4) recently made its debut with the latest cutting-edge technology—think fully automated check-in and computerized bag-drop counters—and plenty of reasons for travelers to linger before their flights. In T4’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-state’s favorite hawker fare. Then there’s a rotating roster of exhibits at the 24-hour Peranakan Gallery, an offshoot of the Peranakan Museum near Fort Canning Park.
