Welcome to the April 2019 edition of Business Traveller Asia-Pacific. Technology has always played a major role in business travel, but we’ve come a long way since the days of carting around huge “portable” typewriters and brick-sized mobile phones. Nowadays, its hard to keep up with all the latest smartphone models that are being released, let alone the plethora of other tech products that are coming to market with the frequent business traveller as customer in mind. On page 52 of this tech-focused issue, Mat Gallagher introduces 10 innovative new travel gadgets from January’s Consumer Electronic’s Show in Las Vegas, including a suitcase that follows you around without your having to move a muscle, and a wallet outfitted with GPS tracking. On the hotel front, on page 38, I have been looking…

changi airport’s jewel opening is upon us

THE WAIT IS ALMOST OVER – Changi Airport’s much vaunted mixed-use development, Jewel, is due to open to the public this month, giving visitors more than 280 new retail and dining outlets to choose from when they fly to the Lion City. Encompassing some 134,000 sqm, the development has a number of key attractions, including Southeast Asia’s largest Nike store, an IMAX cinema, a Yotel short-stay hotel and a 40-metre-high Rain Vortex – the tallest indoor waterfall in the world. Much of the new facility will be open from April 17 onwards, though unfortunately travellers will still need to wait until mid-2019 for the opening of the development’s rainforest-style Canopy Park, which features elevated walkways suspended 25 metres above the ground. changiairport.com…
