Harry Potter casts a spell at the Singapore airport

adminNovember 21, 2018




(CNN) – I would not think that an airport regularly named as the best in the world would need extra magic to help attract passengers, but Singapore Changi is turning to the young wizard Harry Potter for help.

Southeast Asia center has installed full-size replicas of locations included in Potter Books and movies, offering devotees of J.K. The creation of Rowling is another reason to fly.

Travelers not overcome by jet lag or Potter's fatigue can head to Terminal 3, which houses a Hogsmeade Village with the Honeydukes candy store, the Madam Puddifoot's tea shop, Zonko's joke shop, Owl Post and even the Hogwarts Express train.

Elsewhere in Terminal 3, visitors will find Diagon Alley, with stores such as Quality Quidditch Supplies and Weasleys & Wizard of Wheezes.

Terminal 2, meanwhile, houses the famous Whomping Willow tree, while Newt Scamander's Menagerie, part of the new film "Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald"," wait in terminal 1.

Changi airport brings festive joy to fans and visitors at its annual end of the year event.

There are Quidditch challenges, costume Hogwarts uniforms and other themed activities designed to make a long stop pass faster than you can say "wingardium leviosa", and probably encourage you to spend some money as well.

The "Wizarding World Holiday at Changi & # 39; s" event was inaugurated on November 16 and will last until mid-February 2019.

For those who are not interested in Potter, the airport also has several lounges, a butterfly garden and a wide selection of restaurants and shops.

In addition, there are free city tours available for passengers on longer stopovers.

Singapore Changi, which handled 62.2 million passengers in 2017, has been chosen as the best airport in the world for six consecutive years by the prestigious Skytrax awards, with the category dominated by Asian airports.

According to Changi CEO, Lee Seow Hiang, the award "encourages us to continue to offer the best passenger experience for all who travel through Changi Airport".

The 10-story donut-shaped structure will center around a huge interior waterfall and tropical forest.
