See them flap their wings for the very first time and capture this wonder-filled moment in the Mini-Eden discreetly placed in Changi Airport. A man-made paradise was created here in Changi Airport and for the record; this is the first Butterfly Garden in the world that was ever made in an airport.

There are over a thousand butterflies thriving in this garden. Different species of these lovely winged-creatures soar around in this haven which is full of flowers and plants especially planted for them to get the right nutrition that they need. The climate is also taken cared of so as to recreate a natural environment for the butterflies. Visitors are also reminded to be mindful of their actions in order to maintain the serenity surrounding the said garden.

Only a maximum of 30 visitors are accepted at a time to get an up-close and personal experience with the butterflies. It is rather sweet that the airport thought of showing to the world how nature and man can co-exist together without harming each other. The butterfly garden is just an icing on the cake because there are more gardens that you can check out in this airport than you can ever imagine.
