THE ULTIMATE SINGAPORE PHOTO SPOT GUIDE

The Ultimate Singapore Photo Spot Guide

Some stunning shots taken in with some cool easy fashions.

Grab your notebooks and get ready to make lists! I’m about to show you 25 spots I’ve visited around Singapore. Let’s go!

 

JEWEL

First up, we have none other than Jewel, Singapore’s icon. Located in Singapore Changi airport, Jewel has the world’s tallest indoor waterfall – the Rain Vortex. Travelers transiting through Singapore can step out of the airport, into this forest sanctuary and experience this City in a Garden.

If you happen to be transiting through Changi Airport in the evening/at night, you’re in luck as the Rain Vortex has light and sound shows for you to enjoy. The sheet of water becomes a screen where the light and sound show is projected on.

Light & Sound Showtimes: 7.30pm – 11.30pm daily, at hourly intervals

Next let’s travel to the beautiful . If you’ve seen Crazy Rich Asians, this is where the wedding party scene was filmed. You can easily spend half a day here and explore this garden wonderland. From the Supertree Grove, to the Cloud Forest, there are so many spots for you to discover. Find yourself immersed in a mysterious world, or you can stand amongst the super giant trees, either way you’ll find your perfect spot for photos. Wait till night falls and experience the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show.

SUPERTREE GROVE

FLOWER DOME

CLOUD FOREST

FLORAL FANTASY

DRAGONFLY LAKE

Keep walking along the boardwalk of the Dragonfly Lake and you’ll find a stunning view of Marina Bay Sands.

ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM

Just across from Gardens by the Bay, we have ArtScience Museum. The photos above are taken in the Future World: Where Art Meets Science exhibition. This is a permanent exhibition in collaboration with teamLab, so you don’t have to worry about missing it!

CHINATOWN

Nestled in the bustling yet colourful streets of Chinatown, you’ll find the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple & Museum. This 5-storey temple is known for its Buddhist culture, art and history. It also houses a tea-house and a theatre.



 

Just 4 MRT stops away from Chinatown, you’ll find yourself in Little India. Take Exit E from the station and you’ll find the colourful residence of Tan Teng Niah. You can’t actually access the building but you can take photos from outside of it. Take a 3 minutes walk from Little India to Petain Road and you’ll spot this beautiful row of shophouses below.

PETAIN ROAD

Choose between a 6 minute car ride or a 19 minutes walk from Petain to your next photo spot in the Kampong Gelam neighbourhood.

SULTAN MOSQUE

Just a little walk down from Arab street, you’ll find one of Singapore’s most impressive places of worship – the Sultan Mosque also known as Masjid Sultan. In this vibrant neighbourhood, there are many hip cafes, bars, and cool boutique shops to get quirky souvenirs. Not forgetting the street art – the murals make the perfect backdrop for your photos!

Photo tip: Snap your photo from the arches of the iconic Sultan Gate.

Boutique store and mural along Haji Lane.


 

FORT CANNING PARK

Ah, the famous stairwell of Fort Canning Park. With the lush greens and sunlight dripping in, this spot looks out of this world. A wide-angle lens is definitely recommended for this shot! This spiral staircase is located at an underpass connecting Fort Canning Road and Penang Road. Since it’s now 2020, there shouldn’t be a queue for this spot any longer!

SELEGIE ARTS CENTRE

The Selegie Arts Centre is not quite a popular spot, but it sure is colourful enough to make you want to stop for a photo! I used to walk past this building everyday for 3 years as my college was located just around the corner from it. If you do visit this spot, you’re just a 2 minutes walk away from the famous Rochor Original Beancurd store!

CENTRAL FIRE STATION

This national monument is still an active station today. The Central Fire Station also houses a gallery that showcases the firefighting history of Singapore. Right next to this station is another colonial landmark, the Old Hill Street Police Station.

OLD HILL STREET POLICE STATION

The Old Hill Street Police Station has a total of 927 windows in rainbow colours. The main courtyard has been converted into an air-conditioned atrium to hold art exhibitions and performing arts events.

The next spot would be Singapore Botanic Gardens. The gardens is the first UNESCO Heritage Site in Singapore. There are so many spots within the Gardens itself for you to explore. The gardens open from 5am to 12 midnight daily while the National Orchid Garden opens from 8:30am – 7pm. The entry fee is S$5.

NATIONAL ORCHID GARDEN

SWAN LAKE

BAND STAND

SUNDIAL GARDEN

The next spot is a little farther out from the city. Even though the Chinese and Japanese Gardens are currently closed for redevelopment, I still wanted to add it to this list! The expected completion date is currently end 2021. The new park is going to look amazing and I can’t wait to explore the grounds once it’s completed.

CHINESE GARDENS

TELOK BLANGAH HILL PARK

The Terrace Garden consists of a series of semi-circular terraces situated at the top of the park. From here, you will be able to enjoy a breath-taking 360-degree view of Singapore. At certain times of the year, this park will be blooming with bougainvilleas and it’s a beautiful time to visit.

THE HIVE

This beautiful eco-friendly structure, known as The Hive is actually part of a University campus! The Hive is an iconic building in Nanyang Technology University and I love how they continually strive to put in a significant effort towards a greener future.

No list would be complete without the Peranakan shophouses of Katong. You can find this of candy coloured houses along Koon Seng Road, and admire the ornate exteriors of pastel , yellows and blues. Choose your favourite shophouse to take photo with and always remember to be respectful of the homeowners.

KOON SENG ROAD




I saved this spot for the last because as beautiful as it is, this is actually a cemetery. The Japanese Cemetery Park is the largest Japanese cemetery in Southeast Asia and it became a memorial park in 1987. The park contains almost 1000 graves of Japanese civilians that were in Singapore and soldiers from the early 20th century. Find out more on Visit Singapore’s official site.

And we have finally come to the end of the post, I hope you found this article helpful! I’ll definitely have a part 2 for this, as there are so many more spots I’ve yet to show you. In the meantime, enjoy Singapore and have fun!

Love,

Amelyn
