Sunflower Garden

Who doesn’t fancy sunflowers? On the rooftop of the Departure Transit Lounge at Level 3, the bright field of yellow flowers smiling back will cheer anyone up instantly.

This is my must-visit place whenever I’m at the airport, in addition to the view of planes taking off.

Fun fact for you: ALL the plants in Changi Airport are real!

Enchanted Garden

Be ready to be dazzled at Departure Transit Lounge, Level 2. The Enchanted Garden will bring delight with the interactive motion sensors that trigger sounds of nature and blooming flowers. Your breath will be taken away with the giant centrepiece! Put together with four giant glass bouquet sculptures, it is then meticulously enhanced with a mosaic of reflective and twinkling stained-glass.

I especially love the gargantuan arrangement of freshly cut flowers and soft ferns beautifully wrapped up in the middle! If only I can bring the magnificent bouquet home to further admire its beauty. *.*

Butterfly Garden

Singapore is a Garden City – that fact is evident even at our airports. First in the world to be featured in an airport, you will be in the company of over thousand butterflies at the Departure Transit Lounge, Level 2 & 3.
