Jewel Changi Airport based in Singapore has welcomed its first visitors on Thursday (April 11) as it opened its doors to some selected guests for a preview of its newly extended indoor water fall which is now the world’s “Tallest Indoor Waterfall”.

The newly extended water fall was part of the airport’s £951 million Jewel development.

The Rain Vortex is seven storeys tall, and pumps 500,000 litres of rainwater through the roof of the Jewel building – that’s a fifth of the volume of an Olympic-sized swimming pool.

The Jewel Changi Airport will on next week April 14, officially open to the public the vast extensions of the airport, featuring an indoor “forest valley” with 3,000 trees, a 40-metre high “rain vortex” and more than 280 shops and restaurants.
