There are lots happening over at Changi Airport this festive season. 

As part of the airport’s holiday campaign, the Changi Festive Village will be held from Nov 20 to Jan 3 next year. 

This includes plenty of dinosaur-themed activities, in conjunction with the recent launch of Jurassic Mile. Here are five things to look forward to:

1. Dino Fest

Dino Fest is a festive carnival market which will take over the Terminal 4 departure hall from Dec 3 to 27, on Thursdays to Sundays.

You can expect to find close to 50 stores offering street food, festive-themed merchandise, as well as interactive dinosaur-themed activities.

Entry to the Dino Fest costs $7 on weekdays and $9 on weekends for adults, and $5 and S$6 respectively for kids. Entry is free for kids, up to six years old, with every accompanying adult.

The entry fee includes a $5 voucher for F&B and access to activities such as dino petting, the roving raptors meet and greet, and more.

Get your cameras ready as you’ll never know when dinosaurs may appear around the area!

2. Dino Kart

Perfect for thrill-seekers, Dino Kart is a go-karting track operating from Nov 26 to Dec 31.

Taking over the Terminal 4 taxi waiting area, these electric go-karts can go up to 24km per hour. 


There will also be a night-karting experience, featuring colourful neon lights and a lighted tunnel. PHOTO CREDIT: FACEBOOK/@CHANGIAIRPORT


You can redeem a discounted pass for every $30 spent in a single receipt ($80 for supermarkets) at Terminals 1, 3 or 4.

A maximum of four discounted activity passes can be redeemed in a single receipt.
