If you’re looking for places to chill in Singapore this weekend, look no further than our very own Changi Airport. Once just a location for duty-free shopping and your gateway to the world, the airport is now blooming with activities and attractions, including architectural masterpieces and exhibits that will spice up your #OOTDs. Here are some of the most picture perfect spots:

One of the best things to do in Changi Airport – other than flying off – would be to take a photo with the Horticulture exhibits. These creative and vibrant exhibits are refreshed every few months based on a variety of festivals and seasons so rest assured, there’s always something new to see with every visit like these beautiful sky lanterns they had during the Mid-Autumn Festival.

If you love to look at architectural images on Instagram, then you’ll appreciate the aesthetic detail that has been put into every corner of the airport. Even their coach stand is decorated with modern-esque shapes and patterns! It’s a satisfying blend of minimalism along with the angular accents of modern architectural designs. If you’re looking for a symmetrical backdrop, we highly recommend this place.

You don’t have to travel overseas to find a nice field of sunflowers. Just check out the sunflower garden at the transit hall in Terminal 2. It’s a pretty good place to chill in Singapore if you like being in a calming environment. We recommend taking photos here if you’re looking for a floral  frame with warm colour tones.

From the flipping text to the blinking lights, there’s just something about the mechanics of the solari board that screams heritage in the midst of the airport. Grabbing a shot with the iconic boards has become one of our favourite things to do at the airport and we know you want to as well.

Need a breathtaking view before a long flight? Then check out the Sculptural Tree Garden at Terminal 1! The garden is filled with all shades of natural greens mixed with a good dose of sunlight. The general architecture of the garden is also something to marvel at. From the wooden bridges to the curved bars along the ceiling, this garden is a must for any avid photographer who is stuck on a layover.

One of the most popular things to do in Terminal 2 is to grab a few photos under the massive banana leaf-inspired ceilings. Despite being the busiest terminal in Changi Airport, the Departure Hall, which is filled with natural light, has a very calming ambience about it. We recommend posing for a symmetrical shot with the ceiling - the curvature and patterns along the ceiling make for an aesthetically pleasing shot.

Although you will not find real dragonflies here, you can still immerse yourself among a curated collection of tropical flora and magnificent palm trees in the new Dragonfly Garden situated along the linkway between T1 and the upcoming Jewel Changi Airport. The garden also includes a feature pool which creates ripples as though the dragonflies are dancing on them.

This exhibit looks like it came straight out of a sci-fi movie. The coolest feature about the Kinetic Rain exhibit is that it isn’t static and changes form at regular intervals. It’s definitely on our checklist of things to do in Terminal 1 whenever we’re there for a visit.

Like the coach stand, these travellators are also ideal for more symmetrical shots. If you’re an aspiring photographer who’s in love with angular forms, you will want to grab a number of shots with the travelator corridors.

Another must-visit spot in Terminal 1 transit area is the rooftop Cactus Garden., where you will find a variety of desert flora along with an amazing skyview. If you have time to spare, grab a drink at the garden bar and take a shot of yourself living it up and soaking up the sun between flights.

Steel In Bloom @ T4

Steel in Bloom is a unique exhibit located in Terminal 4 that features an intricate set of natural shapes and patterns modelled in steel. The sculpture is inspired by the intermingling between human and nature. What’s more important though, is the fact that the 6 metre high sculpture with its air plants and multi-coloured lighting provides a photogenic backdrop for your #OOTD.
