    Such an interesting and original attraction, definitely worth a visit. Recommend going in the morning to avoid the queues.

    Clean, safe, easy to navigate for a first-time visitor. Gets you to any place in the city you need to be at. Always on time. I felt comfortable letting my teenagers use the MRT to explore on their own. I wish the subways in the U.S. were like this.

    My husband wanted to visit this well hidden gem. I wasn’t keen…but having been persuaded I’d go again. Absolutely fascinating!

    Situated next to the Maxwell MRT and the Maxwell Food Centre is this oasis of peace. We walked into this temple without knowing its significance. But when we entered it, we suddenly felt a feeling of inner bliss which lasted even after we walked out. The many stories of the Buddha depicted on the walls in the form of statues were quite illuminating. Finally, we reached the main prayer hall, where despite us, we folded our hands and prostrated before the idol. What an elevating experience!

    The flora is thriving.
    Great relief from the warm, humid weather.

    I only visited the permanent exhibition and found it an interesting way to spend a few hours.

    The history of Singapore, from the colonial days through to independence was well told through a combination of artefacts and interactive media.

    In summary- waterfall/atrium is impressive and a must see. Rest of Jewel is an expensive mall that can be skipped. Plan your visit strategically if an airport passenger or you can get stuck on the wrong side of the glass or dealing with luggage hassle.

    The waterfall atrium is impressive, no question that you need to see it if you are in Singapore or passing through Changi Airport. HOW you visit it is the difference in experience. The Jewel is really the waterfall/atrium surrounded by a giant mall that attracts what feels like half of Singapore. So the bulk of the people there will be locals slowly wandering around a mall, not travelers lugging their suitcases.

    The suspended walkway, hedge maze, canopy climb and anything else they can think of is now a ticketed experience (quite expensive for the relative product). All the stores in the mall are high-end, not sure why any traveler would want to actually shop there, but the locals do.

    The Jewel is outside immigration, so A) if you are transiting Changi Airport, you actually have to leave to visit the atrium, otherwise the best you can do is the SkyTrain which passes through the atrium (T1-T2 or T1-T3). Make sure you have the necessary time and paperwork to do so. B) if you are staying in Singapore, visit the Jewel before you head into the Terminal and pass through immigration. This can be done by early bag drop at Changi L1 (only if traveling to an approved country, and USA isn't one of them) or by visiting the Jewel without dragging your luggage along (think of it as a tourist attraction and go hands free) or be prepared for a TON of hassle dragging your luggage around.

    We made the mistake of going hours before our flight, only to find we couldn't drop our luggage at the Jewel Early Check-in because USA isn't approved by Singapore Airlines for it. So luggage storage cost us S$40 for 3 pieces. The bridge from Jewel to T3 for example is VERY VERY long and crowded with locals connecting from the MRT. It was a huge pain and Changi signage actually was surprisingly lacking.

    Light show was nothing special. Go see Spectra at the Marina instead.

    Museums can be a bit overwhelming at times, so I chose to join one of their volunteer docent led guided tours. I am glad I did it. He brought the story of the artifacts to life, helping us gain a better understand of what they were, how they got there etc. etc. Very much appreciated.

    I found this place to be quite Humbling, the stories and conditions of the people that were locked up here will really put it all into perspective.
    As an avid military history buff this place was a must see on our trip to Singapore, and I am so glad we made time for a visit. The museum itself is small, but full of interesting displays and information. You could skim though in 30minutes or take your time read and study the information which took us 3 hours. A number of touch screens around full of information give it a modern feel, the museum itself is going with the times and moving to cashless, so bring a credit/debit card.
    Overall, we found the museum to be an extremely moving place, I didn't feel right to take photos of anything inside the museum I was that moved. It's very informative on the area and the events that happened there. Its location is tucked into a corner of the New Changi prison and close to Changi airport. A bus stops right out front running both ways so easy to go there and back from wherever you came from. Small restaurant next to the museum is a nice outdoor undercover area to relax. Johore Battery is a 1 km walk around the corner.

    We had never been to Vivo City before and only went there to cross over to Sentosa by train. As it was raining we spent a couple of hours at the mall and there is quite a good selection of shops. Only on the restaurant side the variety was so so, could have been better. In general lots of the international brands are there, lay out of the mall is quite good to wonder around, and it is easy to reach.

    Went around 7 PM on a Monday and a lot of things were closed already, which was super disappointing because according to Google maps, Maxwell doesn't close until 2 AM. I guess it really just depends on the stall and if they sell out. We ate a couple of skewers and some fresh fruit juices just to hold us over.

    We came back here the same night at around 11:30 for a midnight snack and almost everything was closed. We ended up getting food from this one stall with a massive line. We found out they had a massive line because it was one of the only ones left that was still selling food. It was a stall selling wantan mee, which wasn't bad.

    The one we wanted to check out - Tian Tian Chicken Rice, was already closed at that time. Luckily, our hotel was only about a 10 minute walk away so we came back early on another day and there was no line for it. That was around 9:30 in the morning, and on the flip side - I noticed a lot of stalls weren't open yet. That being said, they probably stagger their opening times based on their competition/clientele? But I don't know, that could be a Mel fact.

    Definitely worth checking out a few times (only if you're staying nearby. If not, you should probably only come once and it should be early for Tian Tian) because it seems if you come at different times, different stalls will be open.

    Massive mall for all the luxuries in the world. If you need to browse and buy top end luxuries everyday, then this is the mall for you.

    Plenty choices to eat too, from food court to obnoxious TV chefs, if that is your thing.

    One of the sights of Singapore and the world.

    It is definitely one of Singapore's architectural marvels! Constructed in the shape of durians, the structure is amazing. The view is beautiful.
