Changi Airport is one of the best airports in the world and they have gardens, malls, hotels, bars and even an aviation museum within the airport complex. They are plants with complex flowers that are bizarrely shaped, having a large specialized lip and frequently a spur. Orchids occur worldwide, esp. as epiphytes in tropical forests, and are valuable hothouse plants. Here are some pictures of the Orchid Garden in Terminal 2.

From the Changi Airport website:
...Exploding fireworks of colours greet visitors to the Orchid Garden from the massed display of tropical and temperate orchids; colours also reflected in the bright orange, red and yellow koi in the pond. The garden features Spider Orchids, Singapore’s famous and enduring hybrid Butterfly Orchids and the fabulous Moth Orchids from the Orchid Island of Taiwan, displayed in a natural setting of rocks or cascading from aged driftwood in a lush tropical landscape of towering Foxtail Palms and unique foliage plants. The garden also features a changing exhibit of rare orchids and seasonal display of Singapore's National Flower - the Vanda Miss Joaquim and Changi Airport's very own - the Dendrobium Changi Airport.
