Matt Dajer and Thomas Brag, two members of the YouTube collective known as Yes Theory, gave fans an inside look at the world’s most luxurious airport when they hit the gym and took a splash in the pool at Singapore’s Changi Airport.
Yes Theory are a group of YouTubers who take on crazy adventures and challenges as part of their content, and frequently travel around the world showing off the amazing locations and incredible people they find along the way.
While flying back from Australia, Matt and Thomas decided to attempt a challenge based on the life of Mehran Nasseri, who lived in a French Airport for 18 years.
The Yes Theory boys had no intention of living in Changi Airport for that long, they hoped to last four days without being kicked out or arrested, and inside found an airport that was more like a luxury hotel than a departure lounge.
After a terrible night’s sleep on the benches for Matt and Thomas, the pair decided to take a look at the amenities this incredible airport had to offer, and found time in their 96 hour stay to get a pump on at the fully-equipped gym.
Of course, working out can be strenuous, so Yes Theory decided to recover in the spa, with both boys opting for a professional massage to alleviate the aches and pains that had come from sleeping on hard benches and a gym session, before heading to the cinema to catch a Pirates of the Carribean showing.
Named the world’s most luxurious airport for a reason, the lads were stunned to find a swimming pool built on to the side of the terminal, with the pair making use of it, and even ordering themselves lunch which they happily ate at the side of the pool.

Their stay in Changi Airport wasn’t all plain sailing though, with both Matt and Thomas concerned that airport security would catch wind of their plan, and eject them from the premises – or even worse, arrest them.
Those fears almost become reality at 3:30AM on the morning of day three, when a security guard asked the pair for their passports and boarding passes, only to let them carry on, despite airport rules claiming they could only remain inside for 48 hours.
Despite originally refusing to check in to the fancy hotel built into the airport terminal, the YesTheory crew eventually purchased access to two of the nap rooms, finally finding a bed to rest their weary bones.
While Changi Airport may have all the fancy amenities you could imagine to make your stay pleasant, Yes Theory were ecstatic to leave Singapore and return to California, but agreed that their run-ins with the airport security did make them feel that airports were safe, and that suspicious behaviour is picked up on and checked.
