Gardens on the Fly : Singapore Changi Airport

I never thought I would say this: I want to arrive a few hours early to an airport. The Singapore Changi Airport  has taken travel to the next level: Free screenings of movies, free internet access, free foot massage chairs, incredible shopping, fine dining. . . . and last but not least several stand-out gardens scattered through the terminals. The Gardens include the Sunflower Garden, the Butterfly Garden, the Orchid Garden, and the Enchanted Garden. Trees also grow in groves throughout the airport while koi fish swim in small ponds by charging stations. The green spaces go a long way to make you feel as though you're just passing an relaxing afternoon in a park rather than enduring the normal hustle before a long flight.

Just in case you forget this is at an airport. See you later Singapore!
Singapore's dedication to green spaces and its belief in the value of gardens both as a place of social importance and health benefits has helped turn the country into a place of extreme beauty. Any admirer of horticulture should mark Singapore as a place to visit in the future.

Wishing you many green adventures,

  3. The most extreme value rate is $210 US dollars. In the event that you going on a business excursion to Miami, you can hold up in at different Miami airplane terminal lodgings. In this way, these lodgings will clearly encounter great administration while doing your business arranging and errands.

  4. It is not always a bad thing to let someone guide you through a country you have never been to and such was the case with Vietnam. I hired the services of Green visa there and really, they made my trip so much worthwhile!

  5. In love with these beautiful gardens of Singapore, thank you for sharing them with us.
