Harry Potter fans, you are in luck!!
This year-end, Changi Airport presents life-sized setups inspired by some of the most iconic and well-known locations seen in the Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts films including, Hogsmeade Village, Diagon Alley, the Whomping Willow and Newt’s Menagerie.
Hogsmeade Village, or simply called Hogsmeade, is the only all-wizarding village in Britain. It was founded by Hengist of Woodcroft who was in Hufflepuff. Since before 1714 (when the 1714 Edict was passed), Hogwarts third years and above have been permitted weekend trips into the village.
See it come to live in a magical snow and light show. To add on to the excitement, you can get your very own moving photos inspired by the Daily Prophet at the photo activity, available during the weekends.

Diagon Alley is a cobble stoned wizarding alley and shopping area located in London, England behind a pub called the Leaky Cauldron. Inside the alley is an assortment of restaurants, shops, and other sights. All items on the Hogwarts supply list can be bought at Diagon Alley. The alley is completely hidden from the Muggle world which is right outside of its boundaries. It is very large in area and essentially the centre of wizarding London.

The Whomping Willow is a very valuable, very violent species of magical plant. Whomping Willows will attack anyone and anything that comes within range of its branches. A deciduous plant, its limbs function as arms and any damage to them must be treated in much the same way.
This is the only time this tree will not attack if you get too close to it!!!
Terminal 2, Public Area
Outside the shop, there are cages of pets on display. It is very cramped and noisy with every inch of wall covered by cages. It sells all kinds of animals — poisonous orange snails, a giant jewel-encrusted tortoise, sleek black rats that are very intelligent, owls, ravens, cats of every colour, Puffskeins, a Transforming rabbit and much more.
Take a picture with the adorable Niffler with his treasure here at Newt’s Menagerie!
