Sneeze,

Oh yes there are some good spotting locations inside the transit area at Changi.

If you are transiting in the morning, go to the Cactus Garden. It's at the left side of Terminal 1. You should have a good view of movements.
On the way there, the former McDonalds area offers a commanding view of the Central Apron.
The glass in the transit facing north into the central apron has a very dark tint, so for this part the public area is better.
Hope that your aircraft's assigned gate is on the western side of the airfield.....with that you will be able to take photos of the movements on Runway 20R/02L.

If you transit is in the afternoon, it is more interesting. Go either to the Sunflower roottop for a good view. You should be able to take some nice pictures of aircraft on climbout. The T2 apron transit, which has lots of little eateries, offer a great viewing area of aircraft movement and the glass is very lightly tinted. Lots of SQ and MAS traffic there and runway action too.

You can move between the terminals either by foot or the Skytrain. Hope that helps.

Thanks Kwek, I think this help me much, hope that I know the way to go to the places you have mentioned.

and I think I would only able to have time for spotting only when I am on my way back HKG.
Since the transit time from SQ001 to SQ108 is really short.

Sunday sunday....early bird catches the worm......
B77W chasing time.....couldn't catch the Paris one arriving at 7 am, but I got the one from Milan, which was a bit late at 8.05 that morning...



A switch of runway - off to the beach....in time to catch Gulf Air. Glad to get her as she will be out of the scene at SIN soon.



Sneaked a couple of over the fence shots and scoot off

Local bird, Silk Air A320


Another Triple for good measure.





Drums were beating to greet me at the Terminal 1 viewing mall, before I tucked in my brunch.
