Are you wondering where the best places to take beautiful photos in Singapore are?
Singapore has so many beautiful and unique locations that it would be almost impossible to rank them. It seems to be created with photography in mind. And what is a better way to share the beauty of this country with your friends back home by immortalising them on your social media feed?
First on the list is, of course, the Merlion Park. Merlion Park is one of the must-see places for all tourists coming to take beautiful photos in Singapore. Although there are several of these Merlion statues all around Singapore, this particular statue is the first Merlion built in Singapore and the only one with water spouting out from its mouth.
The most popular pose by far? Create the illusion of the Merlion spurting water right into your mouth!
When you are at the Merlion Park, be sure to also walk across the Jubilee Bridge to another iconic landmark in Singapore, the Esplanade. It is also affectionately referred to as “the durian” because of it’s triangular shades on its dome that looks like a Durian.
The second place is the Gardens by the Bay, a 101-hectare nature park.
The most iconic feature of the Garden is the 50-metre tall Supertrees, massive canopies that burst into a display of lights and sounds at night. You can find most of the Supertrees at the Supertree Grove, and for those who have watched the movie “Crazy Rich Asians”, the Supertree Grove is where the wedding in the film took place.
Take a beautiful photo from the ground to showcase the majesty of these imposing structures, or head up to the OCBC Skyway to capture a breathtaking shot of you floating above the ground.
While you’re there, don’t forget to visit the two conservatories. Flower Dome is the largest glass greenhouse in the world, while the Cloud Forest has a 35-metre tall indoor mountain.
Entry to the Supertree Grove is Free. However, if you want to go up the OCBC Skyway, it will cost you S$8. Admission to the two conservatories (Flower Dome and Cloud Forest) will cost you S$28.
After admiring the modern architecture of Singapore, it’s about time you slow down and explore Singapore’s historic districts.
The streets in Chinatown, besides having a lot of souvenir shops, also offers plenty of photo opportunities. Not only can you take beautiful photos on the road, but also have fun searching the area for the different impressive murals painted by local artist Yip Yew Chong.
You can find the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple within Chinatown, and visitors are allowed to take photos within the public area in the temple. Make sure you don’t miss photographing its majestic 5-storey facade, featuring Tang-style architecture.
Another area with plenty of historic landmarks is Kampong Glam. In the 1800s, this district used to be home to the Sultan and his followers. That is the reason why the majestic looking Mosque you find here is named Sultan Mosque. Bussorah Street is located just in front of the Sultan Mosque, and this is where you can take gorgeous photos in Singapore with the Mosque in the background.
Since you are already there at Kampong Glam. Head down to Singapore’s original “hipster” street, Haji Lane, to explore the local shops, cafes and snap a picture against the many colourful graffiti walls. Haji Lane is just a 5 minutes walk from the Mosque.
The newest attraction to this list is located right at Changi Airport!
If you’re arriving in, or leaving Singapore, be sure to make a stop at Jewel Changi Airport to take photos against this magnificent structure, along with the many other installations like the Rain Vortex, the Forest Valley, Canopy Bridge and Canopy Park.
The star of the Jewel is the Rain Vortex, the world’s tallest indoor waterfall at 40 metres tall.
Besides taking beautiful photos in Singapore with the Rain Vortex, Jewel Changi Airport also offers you a unique retail concept where nature combines with modernity, and it houses more than 280 retail shops and restaurants. If you are visiting Jewel in at night, it treats you to a captivating light-and-sound show that erupts as night falls.
