Jewel Changi Airport (Jewel), which is a multi-dimensional tourist destination, will be opening its doors to the world on April 17, 2 019.

Five Spice, the food court operated by Food Junction, will also feature over 10 local brands. They include Faai Di by Ka-Soh and Fu Lin Yong Tofu, which have more than 20 years of culinary heritage.
