Not just planes, but sparks, too, can fly at Changi Airport – if you know where to go! Whether it’s to kick-start the romance before your next destination, to confess your love or to propose, Changi’s got you covered.

If you’ve caught Love at First Flight  web series, you might find some of these spots familiar; if you haven’t, watch episode 1 below (or the full series here) to get a glimpse of these romantic spots you can bring your other half to. Read on for more ideas. 

Love at First Flight - Episode 1

Snap some #couplegoals shots at the Sunflower Garden

Take a stroll and strike a pose at Changi’s Sunflower Garden

Walking on sunshine might be how you feel when you’re with the one you love, but doing that isn’t actually possible (not in this world, at least). Instead, you can head to the next best alternative – walking through sunflowers.

Thousands of these bright, yellow splashes line the paths of Changi’s Sunflower Garden, interlaced with a path for you and your other half to take that perfect #couplegoals shot – #nofilter required. With flowers grown from Changi’s very own nursery, this 300 square metre space is one of Changi’s most instagrammable spots, a perfect place to soak up or thaw under the Singapore sun. 

To add on to the romance, here’s a pro-tip:  this garden doubles up as an open-air viewing gallery that overlooks the runway, so you might be able to catch a plane in the background of your photos (try spotting one in the picture above)!

Location: Terminal 2 (Transit), Level 3 (located beside the entertainment deck)

Operating Hours: Open 24-hours daily

Stroll through the winding paths at the Sculptural Garden

Love at First Flight takes Yue Ling and Zhi Xing on a stroll through the sculptural garden – but whatever for?

Beanbags, trees and walkways at the T1 Sculptural Garden

Chill out in the open air with the Sculptural Garden’s beanbags and wooden walkways

The Sculptural Garden, with its wooden walkways and beanbags, provides a casual space for you and your other half to take a stroll up its winding paths or chill down below while soaking in some sun.

What’s unique about this garden is its aesthetically futuristic vibe intertwined with nature – three foliage collages on tree-like sculptures towering the open space. Together with some beautifully sculpted lines that weave the ‘trees’ together, you will be able to catch some of the most stunning lines and shadows cast across the wooden floor.

Much like the Sunflower Garden, you can watch planes fly here too, as you bask in the warmth of the sun or cuddle in the cool of the night with the one you love.

Location: Terminal 1 (Transit), Level 2

Operating Hours: Open 24-hours daily
