An airport doesn’t sound like much of an attraction – more a series of interminable queues filled with tetchy flyers and shrieking babies. But Singapore’s Changi Airport has been voted the world’s best airport for the fifth consecutive year – and there’s much to marvel at here. Butterfly habitats, Balinese-style rooftop pools, 24-hour cinemas, spa centres, and the highly-raved Jewel Changi Airport – trust us, this ain’t your average airport. There are far worse stopovers during a long-haul flight. Once home to an orchard of fruit trees, this area of Singapore is now widely known as the shopping district.

The name is derived from Greek acris (locust) and opsis (resembling). They are common in low- land forests and on roadside trees throughout Southeast Asia. Ants often build gardens around its pseudobulbs, because lipids on the seed coats of the orchid attract ants that assist in their dispersal. A decoction of the leaves and roots was used as an antipyretic in Malaya (Ridley 1907; – Head of Singapore Botanical Garden and Burkill 1935). In Indonesia, juice from the pseudobulbs was dropped into the ear to cure earache or tinnitus, and pulverised pseudobulb was plastered on the head or abdomen to treat fever and hypertension. Roots are used for treating rheumatism in the Western Ghats in India.
