Whether it be an indoor butterfly garden, a busy little koi pond filled with lucky coins, or an outdoor sunflower garden, Singapore’s Changi Airport never fails to have pockets of nature at each terminal. This brilliant orchid garden, located in Terminal 2, features over 30 species carefully arranged by colour and shape to represent the four elements of nature: earth, water, fire and air. The vibrant plants surround a pond full of fish, forming an organic-looking landscape within the bustling confines of the airport.

The orchid is the national flower of Singapore, specifically the hybrid orchid cultivar Vanda ‘Miss Joaquim’ (also known as the Singapore Orchid or the Princess Aloha Orchid), known for its outstanding violet-rose shades. By the way, Google tells me Australia’s national flower is the golden wattle. After living in Australia for 11 years, you’d think I’d know that by now. You learn something new every day!
