Singapore Changi International has opened the world’s first butterfly-garden-in-an-airport. Here, visitors can view 1,000 tropical butterflies from as many as 50 species, including Singapore’s national butterfly.

The world's first airport Butterfly Garden is designed as a tropical butterfly habitat with lots of flowering plants, lush greenery and a 6 metre grotto-waterfall. Visitors are able to see about 1,000 tropical butterflies from as many as 40 species. In the educational corners and individual enclosures in the garden, you can witness the breeding and feeding of butterflies at close range.

One of the main attractions of the garden is the Common Rose Butterfly, otherwise known by its scientific name of ‘Pachliopta Aristolochiae Asteris’. This butterfly, with red dots and white streaks on its wings, was crowned Singapore’s national butterfly by the Nature Society of Singapore in 2015.

You will find the garden in Terminal 3, Departure Transit Hall, Level 2 & 3.
