Butterfly Garden, Singapore

4.3
#18 of 101 in Parks in Singapore
Slightly unusual for an airport (but definitely a soothing activity among Changi Airport’s hustle and bustle), Butterfly Garden offers the chance to survey numerous butterflies in a lush, controlled greenhouse setting. An ideal way to entertain the family while awaiting flight transfers, the Garden aims to take visitors away from the busy atmosphere of the airport. You'll be able to note the various stages of the butterfly’s life journey on display here, from chrysalis to adult.

  • Small area but spans 2 floors. Loaded with a lot of butterflies. Even has an incubator that has real live cocoons. If you’re lucky, you’ll be able to see some new butterflies emerging. Fun and educati...  more »
  • If you have a few minutes to kill while you're in the Changi airport, you'd be silly not to pop into the butterfly garden. It's filled with loads of butterflies fluttering around from flower to flower...  more »

  • Wow👌👌👌👌The world's first Butterfly Garden in an airport is designed as a tropical butterfly habitat with a profusion of flowering plants, lush greenery and a 6 metre grotto-waterfall. You will see about 1,000 tropical butterflies from as many as 40 species during the different seasons of the year.  Educational corners and individual enclosures let you witness the breeding and feeding of butterflies at close range.
  • Butterflies garden in airport? Really? More than impressed! Very nice place to have a relax between the flights. Also I can recommend cactus garden, it is located outside, you can breathe some Singapore air
  • I would highly recommend visiting the butterfly garden at terminal 3. Even outside the opening hours when it is dark it is still beautiful (despite no butterfly's) and nice to experience the Singapore heat, especially if you are just passing through. Note: it may look closed but many people go in anyway.
  • Singapore airports terminals are a sight to behold. They are fresh and green and a pleasure to be waiting in them. There is so many good food places, shopping and gardens to check out. Look for the butterfly gardens behind the traditional food area. Plenty of cool places to kill the time while waiting for the connecting flight.
  • Beautiful place at Terminal 3 this Butterfly Garden. The location is almost at the end of Terminal 3. Although the garden itself not all too big but it is set up with beautiful rare plants so that the butterflies can fly freely at the open air. There so many visitors will take the change to make photos there.
