SINGAPORE -- Singapore's Changi Airport has invested over $1 billion in a new 10-story shopping and entertainment complex that will open next Wednesday as the Asian hub faces rising competition from peers including Hong Kong, Incheon and Bangkok.

The Jewel Changi Airport will open on the site of what used to be an open-air car park and house a hotel, 280 shops and restaurants, a cinema, as well as a 14,000 sq.-meter indoor park. Stores such as Muji, Zara and Nike will open there, as will restaurant chains such as Din Tai Fung and Shake Shack.
