The Airport Series - T2 Changi - Orchid Garden

I was pleasantly surprise to see an Orchid Garden with full bloom right in the middle of the airport. Yes, it's full bloom with multi coloured orchids with a Koi Pond to go along with it.

Oh yes, you have almost everyone who was inside taking photographs, people posing etc.

Here's a snippet of information about Orchids.

p/s Changi Airport, Singapore has 4 terminals. Terminal 1 and 2 are the usual terminal with full service facility like all the pictures you seen so far. There's a Budget Terminal as well, which is for the low cost carriers. Terminal 3 is currenly being built and I think it's almost ready.

Superbe jardin, tres zen, il ferait bien dans le Jardin du Silence d'Evry.
Ta photo est tres belle. On a envie de s'y poser et meme de s'y reposer

What a pretty picture - I always aprpeciate it when airports make an effort to be pleasant. Detroit, where I grew up, has a lovely fountain, but Hartford, near where I live now, is kind of dreary.

Olivier, Merci. When you visit Singapore, you can pose at the zen garden too.

Jenny, yeah, airports in Asia are all very new and pleasant, because they are all quite new.

Jazzy, yes, you should visit soon. I will buy you a bouquet of orchids ;-)

John, thanks. But it's not as clear as I wanted. Dim lighting and I had no tripods and I did not want to use the flash.

Zsolt72, It's Flower Day! :-)

wow, that is much nicer than our airport. I'm envious. I would love to see a nice oasis like this here in San Antonio. Like the car too!
