The city-state of Singapore offers some of the most eclectic and intriguing cuisine found anywhere in Asia, but if you can bring yourself to leave, cheap flights from Singapore booked through Orbitz.com depart from the Changi Airport, located approximately 10 miles from the city-state's main commercial district. The airport offers flights to destinations throughout Asia, Australia, North America and Europe. Airlines available include Singapore Airlines, Air Canada and Air France.
Changi Airport boasts bargain long-term parking garages with fees beginning at $0.04 per minute. These garages have a maximum daily fee of $20. Parking garages located closer to the terminal charge $2.40 per hour with a daily maximum of $58. Visitors picking up or dropping off passengers may have these fees waived by the airport if they are in the garage for less than 10 minutes.
Public buses provide the least expensive option for travel to the Changi Airport in Singapore. Bus services take about an hour and cost less than $2. The city also offers a free shuttle service from the Changi Business Park and Bedok light rail stations. These shuttles take about 30 minutes from each location to the airport. Private car rentals are also available at locations throughout the city with rates based on driver experience, insurance levels and car options. Orbitz.com can assist you with booking hotels nearby that offer free shuttle services to and from the airport.
The convenience stores found throughout the airport provide traditional Asian fare, unlike those in most western countries that offer only packaged snacks and gifts. International restaurants including Lacoste, Desigual and Coffee Kaki provide travelers with seated dining options or bistro-style coffees. When booking your tickets for cheap flights from Singapore, check the airport details on Orbitz.com to find even more dining options at Changi Airport, as new restaurants are constantly opening.
Orbitz.com can help you find cheap flights to Langkawi, an island the Andaman Sea, located approximately 18 miles from the mainland coast of northwestern Malaysia. Langkawi is officially known as "Langkawi, the Jewel of Kedah," or Langkawi Permata Kedah, and is popular with tourists wanting to visit its World Geoparks, including Machincang Cambrian Geoforest Park, Kilim Karst Geoforest Park and Dayang Bunting Marble Geoforest Park.

Langkawi enjoys consistently hot, sunny weather and little rainfall. The average daily temperature ranges between 86Â°F and 91Â°F. At night, temperatures average 84Â°F. The island gets the most rainfall from September to October, but the sea remains calm when it rains, so the rain has little impact on visitors' enjoyment of the island.
Langkawi has been awarded World Geopark status by UNESCO, so tourists often come to the island to experience its natural habitat. Popular attractions include the Telaga Tujuh Waterfalls, also called the Seven Wells, Gunung Raya, the tallest mountain on the island, Underwater World and Crocodile Adventureland.
