Brand new blooms to delight Changi Airport passengers

Changi’s fifth themed garden offers a multi-sensory interactive experience at T2

Singapore Changi Airport unveiled today its latest themed garden that boasts a dramatic display of vibrant colours and interactive technology – a first for Changi Airport, which has pioneered the concept of airport gardens since its opening in 1981.
Located within Terminal 2?s Departure Transit Mall, the new ?Enchanted Garden? – Changi Airport?s fifth themed garden1 – takes pride in the spot where the Fern Garden once stood. It is open, free of charge, to passengers round-the-clock.

Evoking a Shangri-La-like atmosphere, the centrepiece of the garden comprises four giant glass bouquet sculptures, carefully decorated with a mosaic of reflective and shimmering stained-glass. Nestled within these glass bouquets are a dazzling variety of freshly-cut flowers and soft ferns.

An interactive and immersive experience, the Enchanted Garden “magically” comes to life with sight and sound, captivating visitors as they weave through the garden. Motion sensors trigger sounds of nature and blooming flowers while fibre-optic and LED lighting, embedded in the flooring, form a fascinating carpet of sparkling lights.

The Enchanted Garden also features undulating pathways and a fish pond, providing passengers with some respite from the hustle and bustle of air travel. Archerfish and koi reside in this pond and there is an opportunity for young and old alike to join in feeding the fish.

Mr Yeo Kia Thye, Senior Vice President, Airport Operations, Changi Airport Group (CAG), said, “The Enchanted Garden is the first interactive-immersive garden among Changi Airport?s stable of gardens, where passengers stroll through a tranquil and soothing sanctuary, complete with the sights and sounds of a magical forest.

“Like Terminal 3?s popular Butterfly Garden, this new garden represents Changi Airport?s commitment to give our passengers a wonderful experience and great memories with our attractions – in this case, our well-loved gardens,” Mr Yeo added.
An example of how Changi Airport constantly strives to improve its offerings, the Enchanted Garden – hot on the heels of The Social Tree, a recently-launched attraction at Terminal 1 – is another enhancement to the Changi Experience and a result of CAG?s ongoing programme to rejuvenate Changi?s award-winning amenities and facilities to provide a heightened airport experience for all passengers.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
