What’s different from regular shopping malls is that shoppers will be treated to views of the Rain Vortex and the Shiseido Forest Valley.

Other than shopping, Jewel Changi also has a good number of attractions that visitors can explore.

Attractions

1. Rain Vortex

Nestled in the heart of Jewel, the 40m-high Rain Vortex is the world’s tallest indoor waterfall.

At night, visitors can also watch a light and sound show, projected on a sheet of water.

The show runs from 8:30pm to 12:30am daily at hourly intervals.

Due to the size of the attraction, visitors can enjoy the Rain Vortex from various vantage points in Jewel.

The Shiseido Forest Valley is a sanctuary in the core of Jewel, wrapping itself around the Rain Vortex.

A 30-minute walking trail weaving in and out of the valley offers sights of lush greenery and flora. And if you get tired, there are seats along the way for visitors to rest.

If you don’t have that much time, though, you can leave through various exit points along the way.

Although the attraction is suitable for all ages, high heels are not encouraged.

Luggage is also not allowed on the trail, and should be left in bag storage.

3) Canopy Park
