The word "airport" conjures up so many different things, most of them negative: delayed flights, screaming babies, the TSA. For most of us, airports are necessary evils we have to endure—hopefully for as short as possible—in order to get to our desired destinations.

Singapore's Changi Airport, however, is about to change the game forever. Earlier this month, Changi announced that construction for their new project, titled Jewel, had begun. Project Jewel will introduce a giant glass donut complex to the airport, complete with a 130-foot waterfall dubbed the Rain Vortex, a natural park with trails, and plenty of restaurants and luxury retail shops. At night, the Rain Vortex will be illuminated in a mesmerizing light and sound show.

The man behind the vision, renowned architect Moshe Safdie, hopes to "redefine and reinvent what airports are all about," boosting Changi Airport's status as an ultimate destination in itself.  

We don't know about you, but we actually wouldn't mind being delayed an hour or so in this slice of heaven.
