Aussie larrikins and Nova radio duo, Fitzy and Wippa, share some of their best travel tips and tales.
Fitzy and Wippa recently travelled to Changi airport to experience first-hand why it holds the title of the best airport in the world.
Here they share some of their top travel tips:
What 3 things do you never travel without?
Fitzy – I never travel without my laptop, my calculator watch (so I can calculate currency differences on-the-spot) and my passport.
Wippa – My best mate Macca, a lot of clean underpants – they’re crucial, and a Safari Pith helmet, just so people know that you’re out and about and ready to get active whatever your destination is.
What are your top tips for a first-time traveller?
Fitzy – Definitely get travel insurance. If you’re visiting a destination in Asia and likely to be riding on a scooter, make sure you practice before you head off - I learnt that the hard way!
Wippa – Never, ever pose with anyone dressed in a novelty outfit for a photo, it’s guaranteed to cost you a fortune, and be smart. Don’t forget your vaccinations!
What are your top tips for passing time at Changi Airport?
Wippa – Pace yourself! Work out where you want to go and use the Skytrain to get between the three terminals. It’s quick, easy and best of all, free.
Fitzy – Visit the Entertainment Deck! The free Xbox Kinect room lets you play a range of virtual sports- I could literally spend hours in there.
Wippa – Actually the fish spa is a must-do. Add a massage and a walk through the butterfly garden and you’ll forget you’re on a stopover. That’s the best thing about Changi Airport, there’s never a dull moment.
What is your favourite overseas destination?
Wippa – Anywhere in Italy.
Fitzy – New York for me. With a stopover at Changi Airport of course!
Why is a stopover at Changi Airport like no other?
Wippa – The service is second-to-none and for an airport, it’s surprisingly relaxing. How many airports are there where you can lay poolside on the rooftop??
Fitzy – For me, it’s the fact there is just so much to do. Changi Airport is like a world within itself, you’ll need more than one visit just to experience everything. We spent three days living at the airport and we’re still Changi Airport Virgins!
