The Singapore Changi Airport is not just a place for departures and arrivals. With so many dining, shopping, and entertainment options to choose from, the Singapore Changi Airport can also be an ideal place for a family outing. While your children are plane spotting at the viewing deck, your wife can also do some shopping! What’s more, she can save 7% GST on her purchases at participating retail stores and earn some points which can be used to redeem for travel miles and tickets to local attractions. And when your wife is done shopping, tell her to bring the kids to the wood block rubbing station or Singapore’s tallest slide to have some fun while you go check out the spectacularly new wines and spirits flagship duplex store by the DFS Group at Terminal 3.

The Singapore Expo is just one MRT station away from Singapore Changi Airport and though there isn’t much dining options to choose from, food is probably your secondary priority because what you should be seeking for are the great deals and bargains that are available.

Some pretty awesome sale events happening in the month of June include The PC Show 2015, Robinsons Expo Sale, MPH Book Sale, Yummy Food Expo 2015, BHG Expo Sale, Baby Expo 2015 and many more!

We’re pretty sure everyone enjoys watching movies and if you want to reward your children with an outing to the cinemas, consider going during the weekdays as the ticket prices will be cheaper. If you hold a HSBC Credit Card, the HSBC’s Movie Card [All Day] is a really great promotion by Golden Village should you prefer to visit the cinemas during the weekends. If you are a SAFRA Card Member, you can enjoy daily discounted tickets at Shaw Theatres.

Some movies that will be releasing in June include Jurassic World, Minions, Barely Lethal, and Terminator: Genysis
