10 Incredible things to do in the Changi Airport – Layovers will never be the same

Changi Airport in Singapore has been crowned the 'World's Best Airport' for five consecutive years, which is no small feat! This is mostly owing to the great variety of attractions and activities in Changi airport's four interconnected terminals.


Check out the Butterfly Garden

Among the nicest things to do at Changi Airport is to see the beautiful Butterfly Garden. It is located on the roof of Terminal 2 and is accessible to all travellers at no cost. Over 1000 butterflies and up to 40 species (at various times of the year) reside in the tropical enclosure, where visitors may learn about their lifecycle at Education Corners and observe the nesting and feeding of butterflies in separate enclosures.


Unwind within the Orchid Gardens

The Orchid Garden and Koi Pond are located in Terminal 2's exact centre. There are about 700 orchids from over 30 different kinds on display, arranged according to their colours and shapes. The exhibit portrays the four natural elements of Earth, Water, Fire, and Air.
The White orchids presented with floating glass bubbles signify 'Air,' while the rare brown and green orchids shown next to tree root sculptures indicate 'Earth,' the floral columns resembling huge candles represent 'Fire,' and the clustered blue and violet orchids represent 'Water.'


Grab a free massage

The fact that you can simply sit down, place your feet in the booties, and receive a 15-minute foot and calf massage – making it one of the greatest things to do in Singapore airport – is what makes this one of the most popular attractions in the airport.
Wellness Oasis in Terminal 1 accepts walk-in clients for massages, reflexology, or simply a hot shower and is one of the best spas to get a massage at Changi Airport if this choice doesn't appeal to you or if you're looking for a more personalized experience.


Explore the Enchanted Garden

The interactive Enchanted Garden comes to life with sight and sound as you make your way through the wooden walkway that spirals through the garden. Motion detectors activate sounds of nature and blooming flowers, while fibre-optic and LED illumination to create a mesmerizing carpet of shimmering lights. It is magical for both children and adults.
