Inspired by the heartwarming love story of Bob and Tracy - the starry-eyed ‘Trolley couple’ in Changi Airport’s latest animated web video, we sought out the best places across all four terminals for you to capture that perfect couple photo. Here at Changi Airport, the abundance of lush gardens and nature attractions present beautiful backdrops for romantic and memorable moments with your loved one.
Before you read on, catch the Changi Trolley story below. Be sure to visit the following places where Bob and Tracy ‘trolleyed’ in pursuit of dreamy love, and create hotspots with butterfly kisses of your own!
If you’re traveling from Terminals 1 - 3
Capture picturesque moments at the Butterfly Garden
With natural light streaming in amid a glistening 6-metre waterfall and flowers of bright hues, all you have to do is to let a beautiful butterfly land on your hand to capture that picturesque moment with your loved one. Fret not, if no butterfly drops by. Simply rub some pineapple sweetness on your hand and at least one of the 40 species of nectar-loving butterflies will be attracted to you.
● Terminal 3, Departure Transit Hall, Levels 2 & 3
Experience magical feelings at the Enchanted Garden
Surround yourself with a magical sensory experience of lights and sounds as you walk through the Enchanted Garden with your partner. The centrepiece of the garden - a sculpture comprising four giant glass bouquets decorated with glittering stained glass - forms a captivating backdrop for a special moment to be remembered.
● Terminal 2, Departure Transit Hall, Level 2
Catch the action of aircrafts at the hidden garden behind Terminal 1’s swimming pool
If you are an aviation enthusiast or simply want a quiet spot to admire the planes in the airport, the hidden garden behind Terminal 1’s swimming pool is the ideal spot. Capture the moment when a plane takes off in the background without having too many people around to photobomb.
● Terminal 1, Departure Transit Hall, Level 3, near D Gates
This refreshingly cheerful garden is not to be missed by any lovebirds looking to take a photo together. The garden features several varieties of sunflowers grown in Changi Airport's very own nursery. Capture the energy and brilliance of this garden with your camera as you pose among the sunflowers. Oh, and, did we mention that you will also get a majestic view of the runway and aircraft parking bays from this rooftop haven?
● Terminal 2, Departure Transit Hall, Level 3
If you're travelling from Terminal 4
Blend in with nature at the Boulevard of Trees
Waiting for your flight at the boarding gate? Don’t waste this opportunity to snap a shot of your pre-flight moment among the 160 fig trees along the Boulevard of Trees. Get comfortable on the intricately-designed seats of T4, or pose along the aisles surrounded by the exotic trees. If you’re lucky, you might even capture the mist that waters these trees to make for a cool photo effect!
● Terminal 4, Departure Hall, along Boarding Gates
Be mesmerised by the splendid colours of Steel in Bloom
Fancy a backdrop of purple foliage, or a cool blue tone to your couple photo? The good news is that you don’t have to edit your photos to achieve these effects! The 6-metre high centrepiece steel structure is lit by multi-coloured lighting that changes often, making it a dynamic display. Surrounded by shrubs of flora, the Steel in Bloom presents many photo angles, and trust us, no two photos will look the same.
● Terminal 4, Departure Transit Hall, Level 2
Enjoy the Peranakan Love Story at the Heritage Zone
Only found in certain parts of Singapore such as Chinatown and Joo Chiat, the row of colourful Peranakan shophouses provide for a unique cultural backdrop for your couple photo. While you are there, catch the “Peranakan Love Story”, a 6-minute immersive 3D show. You would be intrigued to see that the two of the shophouses are actually LED screens for the show!
● Terminal 4, Departure Transit Hall, Level 2
If you’re not traveling out of Changi Airport, visit the Arrival Garden at Terminal 1
If you’re only visiting, be sure to drop by the airport’s first thematic garden in the public area at Terminal 1. You will also be able to catch a glimpse of Jewel - Singapore’s first multi-dimensional lifestyle destination connected by Terminals 1, 2 and 3 - from the Arrival Garden, before its official opening later in the year. Frame the glistening Jewel in the skyline and position yourselves in the foreground for a precious gem of a picture!
