I featured some glitzy stores at the Singapore airport recently, and I’m sure others around the world have them. However, how many airports have a butterfly garden? Yup, Singapore’s Changi Airport has one, and I had to take a look.
I actually found out about this butterfly garden through the movie Crazy Rich Asians, in a throwaway line, about how nice the airport was. I didn’t search hard but saw the sign for it as I headed towards the gate — unquestionably, a quick detour was in order along with a few snaps.
Ironically, after spending three days in Singapore, this was the most “tropical” place I visited. With more time, and with a macro lens, I would’ve attempted closeups of butterflies. On the other hand, I also never shoot macros, so maybe not. You know I prefer architecture and street photography a lot more.
