Whether or not you are heading overseas or coming back from abroad, Changi Airport is offering a slew of activities designed to let you experience China for the school holidays in September.
I am sure many of us are aware of the Ma La craze that has taken over Singapore by storm. Even our chips and instant noodles have infused the numbing flavour of Ma La in them. That’s not all. Inspired by this popular cuisine, Changi Airport has a Ma La pot inspired indoor playground, Flavours Of China, for your entertainment.
Kids can slide down a “noodle “slide into a ball pit full of ma la hotpot soup ingredients such as mushroom and vegetables. There is even a kids obstacle course to try out, all fully padded for child safety. Visitors can redeem a pass for access to the Flavours Of China playground when you spend at least S$50 (S$80 for supermarket purchases) at Changi Airport.
Do take note that participants are required to wear socks for this.
