Calling all Potterheads! The magical world of Harry Potter has landed in Singapore’s Changi Airport. The world’s best airport is spreading some holiday cheer by bringing in magical wonders from Hogsmeade to Whomping Willow.

According to CNN Travel, Changi Airport is teaming up with Warner Bros. to install exhibits of the iconic locations mentioned in both the Harry Potter books and movies, allowing travellers to explore as they wait for their flights. The full-sized installation is called ‘A Wizarding World Holiday at Changi Airport’ and will be open to public everyday all through mid-February, from 10am-10pm.

The installation is spread all throughout the other terminals, visitors in Terminal 3 can explore Hogsmeade village and wander through Honeydukes, Zonko’s, Madam Puddifoot’s tea shop and many more. Just right beside, roam around Diagon Alley and purchase your brooms, books, robes and other items for your next semester in Hogwarts.

In Terminal 1, step inside the world of Newt Scamander’s Menagerie and marvel at the magical creatures. Be sure to take a picture with the tub of shiny coins with the Niffler and the other creatures and treasures.

The Whomping Willow has planted itself in Terminal 2 with Ron Weasley’s flying car stuck to its branches. Though unlike the tree planted in Hogwarts grounds, you can take a photo with the whomping willow without getting chased by its branches!

Apart from the installations, visitors are free to dress up as their favourite Harry Potter character or wear their respective house robes or uniforms. In addition to the many photo opportunities throughout the displays, visitors can also take part in activities such as Quidditch challenges and other wizarding-themed games.
