Welcome to Singapore-Changi Airport


Above we see a long Koi pond which stretches the length of a concourse I would typically find in LAX. But this isn't LAX, it's Changi International Airport in Singapore. Which is a HUGE airport in comparison to most of the airports I've traveled through.
 Some of the many Koi hanging around in the pond. It must get kind of the same for the Koi after a while. Same black tile all around 24/7.

When you get tired of looking at the Koi or strolling the pond, or having a drink at the Tiger Beer pub (off screen) you can relax in comfortable chairs in the cozy atrium. All they need is tropical birds....and after the welcome wall below we see......

 Tropical Birds of Singapore and Malaysia courtesy of the Singapore Bird Park!
Well, they were made of wood, but they added some great color to the palm trees, tropical plants, and    waterfalls in the receiving hall.
                                     
More to come soon as we get through the immigration check point and out into Singapore to get something to eat. ;)
