Orchids of Singapore

It is the rustling orchids that welcome you as you land in Changi airport, Singapore. The various hues and hybrids of orchids there intoxicated my eyes; it seemed to me as if there was a party of orchids at the airport. And this was only the beginning, as I explored more of Singapore I found orchids everywhere.


It is the national flower of Singapore, the climate of this country is most favorable for growing orchids. This enables it, one of the smallest countries of the world to be the world’s largest commercial orchid grower. The National Botanical Garden Singapore is a must see if you love flowers.

  • These orchids are beautiful. It must be a real pleasure to see them all around the city.

  • Give me Orchids every time, I love them.

  • Beautiful photographs. I have only one orchid and have no luck in getting it to bloom. They are beautiful!

  • Wow, what a way to welcome people with such an explosion of color!
    I saw some orchids at the grocery store last week but I left them there fearing I wouldn't be able to help them survive. 🙂
    Lovely shots!

  • I love orchids and it's amazing seeing such a large splash of them.

  • Very pretty!

    It would be a delight to have you come and visit my flower post for today. Thanks!

  • It's been a few years since I was in Singapore, but I remember the orchids. The Bangkok airport has a sunning display of orchids, too. What a gorgeous flower.

  • WOW! I love orchids!

  • Lovely Orchids! And pictures! 🙂 Such a beautiful sky and temple in your previous post! Impressing! 🙂

  • The national flower of Singapore is the Vanda Miss Joacim orchid, you can find them in the Botanical Gardens but not at the airport. We have a dedicated team of gardeners in charge of the plants at the airport. I love seeing beautiful flowers in our airport and park/gardens.

  • Hi Indrani

    Useful information

    Beautiful pictures

    thanks

  • After many years of stop-overs in Singapore and always visiting the Bot. Gardens, I have watched the wonderful Orchid gardens grow to maturity. At Changi Airport the orchids around the pool have been a feature for some time now and are always a welcoming feature.

    Lovely photos.

  • These orchids are very special! At Changi Airport you said? When we were there in June 1996 we didn't see any, more is the pity! But we visited an orchid garden somewhere in Singapore.

  • These are fabulous! I love painting flowers.

    I really enjoyed visiting your country.

    I am your new follower.

  • Este colorido alegra quem chega!

  • Hey! nice article! I like how it’s short but still emphasizes the importance of orchids in singapore!

  • Beautiful orchids lurking at the airport! My mom has a lot of orchids at home and I think that’s her first love. Her plants would always have that glow that would instantly refresh you after a long day.

  • No wonder Changi Airport is one of the most beautiful airports in the world. I love how they infused beautiful side of nature in the airport. The colors of the flowers look amazing too!

  • I have never visited it when I was in Changi Airport. When I went there last 2015, what mesmerized me was the Enchanted Garden. They said that Changi Airport is the most beautiful airport in the world. Do you agree with it? I just have seen 3 airports and maybe I can tell it once I explored already the airports in other countries.

      I have seen several airports, Singapore’s indeed is the most beautiful one.

  • Singapore’s Changi Airport must be one of the most efficient, clean and stunning in the world. I noticed the orchids there as well as across various attractions in Singapore. Singaporeans are such an industrious hard-working and entrepreneurial people that I am not surprised that they are one of the world’s largest orchid producers. It is a lovely flower indeed.
