14 BEST INSTAGRAM SPOTS IN SINGAPORE: How to Take Beautiful Photos in Singapore


What’s up, everybody? Philcaela here 🙂 And we are in Singapore! We’ll be spending a few days here and we’ll
be taking you around with us to check out the most Instagrammable Spots in Singapore! Let’s go!!! We’re walking through the Gardens By The
Bay now, obviously one of the must-visit places in Singapore and we just passed through the
Supertree Grove, unfortunately there’s a bunch of like Toy Story stuff everywhere (why?!),
so we couldn’t get a good photo. Why?! It’s like 7:30AM and it’s already 82 degrees
and I’m already sweating. Singapore is hot, if you didn’t know. We’re gonna try and get photos from a different
vantage point now and we’re heading to the waterfront and, again, this place get super,
super packed, but we’re here actually pretty early, so there’s no one around so that’s
a great tip for you if you’re trying to get great photos with no one in it. So this one only has 3 of the trees, but there’s
also a Ferris wheel behind us so you can get a great photo. It’s now 8:30 and the tour buses are arriving,
so pro tip: if you wanna avoid the crowds and the tour buses, you gotta come early. All the buses just arrived pretty much. You can see this crowd behind us, that was
not there like 2 minutes ago, so come early if you want those empty photos. Like a 5 minute walk away from the Supertrees
over there, we’re now at Cloud Forest and yeah it’s getting more and more crowded
the later it is, so earlier is always better. It was $28 SGD per person for entry. Right as you walk, it is like 20 degrees cooler
in here. This feels so good! Soon as you walk in here, you’re greeted
here by so much AC and wind and mist and a beautiful waterfall, it’s amazing, it’s
really beautiful. Really easy to take pictures in front of,
and honestly it’s nice because there are crowds in here but the crowds come and go,
so if you’re patient you can definitely get some really empty shots. Obviously with this one, you wanna go at a
low angle and get as much of that beautiful waterfall in the back as possible. And if you can, have a wide-angle lens so
you can see more of everything. And just outside of the Cloud Forest right
across the walkway is the Flower Dome and actually this came included with our entry. It was actually too hot outside and my camera
fogged up when I was recording the Flower Dome entrance. A lot more Instagram opportunities and photography
opporunties in here and just a lot of flowers. I’m not sure why but the Flower Dome is
significantly more packed than the Cloud Forest. Here it’s pretty but the Cloud Forest was
amazing. Here it’s so packed, not sure why, maybe
all the asian mom love taking photos with the roses and flowers. And our last spot that we’re going to hit
for now around Gardens By The Bay is Dragonfly Bridge. Dragonfly Bridge actually connects the Marina
Bay Sands area to the Gardens By The Bay Area over the waterway. And you have a really, really beautiful view,
unobstructed of the Marina Bay Sands in the background. So 3 towers with the boat on top like that,
that iconic Singaporean building. And also on the bridge you have a nice view
of the Silver Garden, which is those 3 sprouting super trees and also the Ferris wheel in the
background, pretty good vantage point and there’s a lot of photo opportunities you
can have on this bridge. And the next spot is in little India. Behind me is the Masjid Sultan, the Sultan
mosque and it’s got a really, really beautiful golden dome roof up top. There’s a lot of different places you can
take pictures of this. There’s actually a walkway and a street
over there with all kinds of shops along it and you have beautiful leading lines leading
up to it. And right here you have also this gate, portal-looking
thing that’ll allow you to frame your subject really well. Got some beautiful photos with the mosque,
Masjid Sultan, now we’re heading not too far away to Haji Lane, another part of Little
India. So we’re at Haji Lane, this place is super
cute, there’s like really tiny, cute small front cafes, boutiques, and everything, but
also there’s really, really cute architecture here, if you’re down the street you can
get angle of all the houses and you can get a lot of great leading lines, which everybody
loves. Overall this is a really cute visit if you’re
around this area. Although we’re super jet lagged and exhausted
right now we’re going to power through this. So we’re in line for the skybridge for the
super trees right now. Yeah, it costs $8SGD per person to be able
to go up and you gotta wait in this line but you’re gonna get a really, really beautiful
view walking among the super trees and right now luckily it’s almost sunset, we’re
gonna get that golden hour, we’re gonna get some beautiful photos of the Marina Bay
Sands in the background. We just got up on the bridge it took around
like 10 minutes in the line but it’s really nice up here, it’s really cool. We’re by the water so it’s definitely
cooler here so it feels really, really, really good. And the sun’s about to go down in like 10-15
minutes. So we’re waiting for the optimal golden
hour lighting. It’s beautiful it’s like a 360 view here,
up here there literally a view of everything there’s like a dome over here, the Ferris
wheel. Marina Bay Sands behind me, I was like where
is it, it’s the huge thing behind me. And also at 7:45PM and 8:45PM all the super
trees light up and have a really beautiful light show so check that out, too! And the next place on our list is Helix Bridge,
it’s a bridge that’s just north of the Marina Bay Sands shoppes and what’s beautiful
about this spot is not only the bridge itself and the nice framing and composition that
it provides, but also the fact that you have the iconic Marina Bay Sands and the Art Science
museum behind you. There’re a bunch of different ways you can
take photos here whether you’re just taking photos of the bridge or you can walk a little
bit down like we did and you can get the bridge, the Marina Bay Sands building, and also the
Art Science museum in the background. It’s a really cool spot for photos and it’s
also really close to a lot of other things you might want to visit, so it’s really
easy to hit up. Chijmes is a former convent building that
is now a mix of a lot of things. It could be a wedding venue, you can host
a lot of events here. There are tons of areas to walk around here
with great leading lines and the columns inside. Also the front has a really cute background,
so great photo spot there and not only do they have a lot of restaurants, there are
a lot of cafes in the area. So definitely recommend coming here for cute
Instagram photos, also for coffee, tea, and food. And the next spot is this really cool building
behind me, this is the Old Hill St Police Station. You gotta rapid fire, because there’re,
oh shit! Bus behind me! There’re tons of cars going by both ways. You get kinda like a 10-15 second window,
so once you get that window, you just rapid fire, take a lot of photos. Normally we’d love to go in the middle of
the street and have a picture of Micaela or me walking in the street across, but jaywalking
is illegal in Singapore and this is a busy, busy street right here so we can get great
photos from this side. And the next Instagrammable spot in Singapore
is inside the Jewel, which is basically a big mall connected to the airport. This is the Rain Vortex behind me, as you
can see it’s a really, really beautiful waterfall cascading down. It’s huge, it’s giant, and it’s right
in the center of the mall. It’s a great place to take photos. You will not be alone here, there are hordes
of people trying to get their photos here, but whether you’re looking for a photo of
yourself in front of it, or you’re just looking for a photo of the Rain Vortex itself,
it’s really, really beautiful here. So our next spot is something you probably
saw on Instagram before, it’s the Peranakan Houses. This is just off Joo Chiat, which is a road
and this is actually called Koon Seng Rd, this is a row of iconic, really beautifully
painted Peranakan-style houses. You can stand on either side of the road because
there are beautifully painted houses on both sides. So here you’re got some pinks, some browns,
and some light greens. And you can see behind me there are some purples
and blues and just a lot of beautiful colors to really liven up any photograph or any Instagram
post. Basically, these houses are really beautiful
and there are tons of different ways to photograph them so definitely make sure to check them
out. And now we’re on top of the Marina Bay Sands,
this is the infinity pool and honestly we’re saving this for last because it’s maybe
the best view in Singapore, but it’s also probably one of the most known. We’re spending one night in the Marina Bay
Sands and with that you get access to this rooftop pool and bar area that spans across
three towers. Obviously this is not a terribly cost-effective
option if you’re just looking for a great photograph or Instagram, but if you are staying
at Marina Bay Sands, then you definitely need to come up here and check out this beautiful
view. And that’s gonna do it for the most Instagrammable
spots in Singapore! Hopefully this video is informative and now
