This airport has been transformed into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Nov 21 2018, 6:26 am

We all know that sinking feeling you get when you realize you have a four-hour stopover at an airport without a single charging station or spare seat, wishing you were anywhere but there.

It’s the absolute worst. Almost as bad as being locked in a cupboard under the stairs by the Dursleys, you might say.

Maybe you do have a bit a of wizard in you after all, because your spell seems to have worked. Singapore’s Changi airport is transporting you straight into the world of JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts this winter, bringing scenes from our favourite wizarding hero’s adventures to life.

Even Muggles can have fun exploring the full-size replicas of Hogsmead Village and Diagon Alley, dodging the infamous Whomping Willow or meeting some of the franchise’s most intriguing creatures in Newt Scamander’s Menagerie, straight out of the brand new movie “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.”

Forgot to pack your robes? Madam Malkin’s Robes for all Occasions at Diagon Alley (T3) has got you covered, with plenty of school uniforms and dress robes to pick from, and you’ll get a GIF to share. If it’s not on Instagram, it didn’t happen, right?

Next, see if your broom-riding and Quaffle-throwing skills match Harry Potter’s at Quality Quidditch supplies before heading towards Hogsmead village (T3 Departures) to take in the wintery scene of snowy rooftops to the backdrop of Hogwarts in all its glory.

Grab some Every Flavour Beans from Honeydukes and make sure you don’t miss out on the light and snow shows. You might be having so much fun you lose track of time and we won’t be there to lend you our time turner, so here’s our number one tip: DON’T MISS YOUR FLIGHT! Even Harry can’t help you out of that one.
