20 Most Instagrammable places in Singapore

1) Gardens by the Bay (Super Tree Grove)

If you are planning a trip to Singapore one of the top things on your itinerary should be to check out the Gardens by the Bay.

It is hands down the coolest park I’ve ever been too and it’s FREE! The super trees are covered in a beautiful array of tropical flowers and are such an amazing site to see!

Make sure you visit the park twice – once during the day time and once at night as the Super trees light up to music each night at 19h45 and 20h45.

TOP TIP – Come before 9am to enjoy the main super tree grove with less people (and get that instagrammable shot! If you come later in the day make sure you check out the less crowded Golden and Silver gardens.

Go to Singapore, TREEt yo self 🌳😎🤣 :::: Gardens by the Bay is my favourite place in Singapore, not only is it FREE but it is so beautiful and unique 😍 :::: Every night at 7:45pm and 8:45pm you can enjoy the FREE Garden Rhapsody show where the supertrees light up in time with music 🎶 :::: TRAVEL TIP – Having watched the show from the balcony and below I would recommend going to the grass for the best view of the light show 🌟 :::: 📷 by @charlies_wanderings then edited on @lightroom with my Golden Glow Pop Preset :::: Get 50% off my ENTIRE SHOP until midnight on May 8 with code BIRTHDAY50 #gingerpresets 🥳 :::: #gardensbythebay #singapore #visitsingapore #supertreegrove #supertrees #gardensbythebaysingapore #tlasia #asia_vacations

2) Marina Bay Sands

Easily the most iconic building in Singapore, the Marina Bay Sands is also a great subject for Instagram pictures.

TOP TIP – There are lots of different possible angles to capture the Marina Bay Sand, my favourite spots are by the Merlion, at the end of the Helix Bridge and within Gardens by the Bay.

3) Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

Another iconic Singapore photo for your Instagram is in the infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands. Please note that you will have to be a guest at the hotel in order to use the pool.

TOP TIP – If you can’t afford to splash out on a room at the Marina Bay Sands you can still enjoy the view by going up to the Cé La Vi bar.

4) OCBC Skyway

Enjoy views over Singapore and the super trees by going up the OCBC Skyway. Tickets are only $8 and they limit the amount of people allowed on the bridge at one time so it’s never too busy.

TOP TIP – Go for opening at 9am to enjoy it with only a few other people.

Gingapore 🇸🇬👩‍🦰🤣 :::: I came up with my username as I wanted it related to myself and travel. My ginger hair is definitely my most memorable asset and I wanted my username to celebrate what makes me unique! 👩‍🦰💁‍♀️ :::: How did you come up with your @Instagram name? :::: TRAVEL TIP – The OCBC Skyway is only $8 and offers a unique view over the Supertrees and @marinabaysands, it opens at 9am and I would recommend going then so you can be one of the first up 😊 :::: 📷 by @alexwandr and edited with my Golden Film Preset #gingerpresets :::: #singapore #gardensbythebay @gardensbythebay #supertrees #supertreegrove #singaporecity #ilovesingapore #prettylittletrips #gingerhair #ocbcskyway #singapore_insta

5) Cloud Forest

Located within Gardens By the Bay, the Cloud Forest offers impressive photo opportunities as well as a chance to cool off in the air conditioned interior.

Tickets to visit the two conservatories are 28$, you can buy this online or from the ticket office.

TOP TIP – Try to avoid visiting the cloud forest on the weekend. We also went for opening at 9am to ensure that we could get a photo in front of this waterfall (which is located right at the entrance).

I was going to share a joke about waterfalls but it’s pretty pour… 💦🤣 :::: I finally got to visit the Cloud Forest on my second visit to Singapore 🌳 ☁️ :::: Travelling around Asia for 7 months meant sticking to a strict budget and the $28 ticket was a bit out of our daily spendings. Coming from Australia our budget was higher so I was finally able to see it for myself! 😍 :::: Travelling on a budget can be challenging but it makes it easier to travel for longer! 🌍 :::: Do you tend to stick to a budget when travelling? 💰 :::: TRAVEL TIP – We went to the Cloud Forest for opening at 9am and had it mostly to ourselves ☺️🙌 :::: EDITING TIP – Edited on @lightroom with my Golden Glow Pop Preset, I then added the mist/clouds using the @lensdistortions app :::: 📷 by @alexwandr on my @samsungau galaxy s10+ :::: #withgalaxy #gingerpresets #cloudforest #cloudforestdome #cloudforestsingapore #singapore #gardensbythebaysingapore #gardensbythebay #iamtb #sheisnotlost

6) Floral Fantasy

Floral Fantasy is one of Singapore’s newest instagrammable attractions at Gardens by the Bay. Flowers, artistry and technology come together to create a dream-like, fantastical experience for visitors, and creating lots of beautiful photo opportunities.

TOP TIP – As this is a new attraction in 2019 I would book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment.

7) Singapore’s Art Science Museum

The Art Science Museum in Singapore has a number of amazing interactive exhibits that are not only super fun but super instagrammable too!

TOP TIP – The insta-famous light display is located right at the end of the Future World exhibit, if you go to the museum for opening at 10am and head straight there you should have it all to yourself (you can then back track to the start of the exhibit).

8) Helix Bridge

A beautiful piece of architecture that stretches over Marina Bay to Gardens by the Bay, offering perfect views of the Singapore city skyline and Marina Bay Sands.

View this post on Instagram

The Helix Bridge is an incredible piece of architecture in Singapore! I can’t believe this was my first time walking on it since I’ve been to Singapore a few times already😂 . I’ve posted a video on my IGTV about my Singapore trips and listed all my itineraries in there. Check it out! . .

9) Merlion Park

A great spot to photograph Marina Bay Sands as well as see the iconic Merlion fountain. As there’s water right behind you you can shoot at any time of day!

View this post on Instagram

At the cost of $8 billion, Marina Bay Sands is the most expensive stand alone integrated resort property ever built! 🏢 Don't miss going up to the bar at the top (Cé La Vi) for a beautiful view over marina bay (but expect to pay 💰 – 4 bottles of tiger beer were $75! 🍺) **budget tip** you could say you're heading to the bar then just have a look at the view before getting the lift back down. Head to my latest blog – 10 unmissable things to do in Singapore – for more tips!

10) Jewel at Singapore’s Changi Airport

Another new instagrammable spot in Singapore is the largest indoor waterfall in the world at the Jewel Changi Airport. The Rain Vortex is quite a site! This is a mall within the airport and not at one particular terminal.

TOP TIP  – I would recommend going to the Jewel in the evening so that you can see the FREE light show! It’s at 7.30 pm, 8.30 pm, 9.30 pm, 10.30 pm and 12.30 pm

The Jewel at Singapore's Changi airport has the tallest indoor waterfall, you can't mist it! 💦🤣 :::: The rain vortex gushes over 500,000 litres of water and mist! It was amazing to see it in real life although it was super busy, you'll need a bit of patience if you want a shot here 🕘 :::: I would recommend going to the Jewel in the evening so that you can see the FREE light show! It's at 7.30 pm, 8.30 pm, 9.30 pm, 10.30 pm and 12.30 pm ⚡ :::: 📷 by @alexwandr shot on my Samsung Galaxy S10+ #withgalaxy :::: Edited with my Golden Glow Pop Preset and added the mist in the @lensdistortions app #gingerpresets :::: @samsungau @samsungmobile #singaporecity #jewelsingapore #jewelchangiairport #jewelchangi #singapore #singaporegirl #singaporeinsiders #tlasia

11) Kampong Glam (Arab Street and Haji Lane)

Two of the most instagrammed streets in Singapore, Arab Street and Haji Lane are very popular amongst instagrammers thanks to the colourful graffitied walls, unique boutique stores and fun cafés with live music.

12) Masjid Sultan

If you are heading to Kampong Glam make sure you stop to check out the beautiful Masjid Sultan!

13) Little India

You will find the most colourful insta-worthy building in Little India. Just google Tan Teng Niah! We shot this mid-week during the afternoon and there weren’t too many people around.

TOP TIP – Bring a wide angle lens so that you can capture the whole building.

I know it looks like I’m in COLORado but this is actually Little India in Singapore 😍🎨🤣 :::: I very nearly added colour of my own to the ground when a lady inside the house opened the shutter behind my head whilst I was taking a photo 🤣🙈💩 :::: What’s the funniest thing that’s happened to you whilst taking photos? :::: TRAVEL TIP – This alleyway is quite narrow so if you want to get it all in you need a wide angle! My 16mm full frame camera couldn’t get it all in but my @samsungau Galaxy S10+ could! #withgalaxy 📱🙌 :::: This photo was taken and edited on mobile using my City Vibe Mobile Preset in the FREE @lightroom app! #gingerpresets :::: 📷 by @alexwandr :::: 📍Tan Teng Niah :::: #littleindia #tantengniah #singapore #visitsingapore #tlasia #asia_vacations #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #dametraveler

14) Chinese Garden

The Chinese Garden is a park in Jurong East, Singapore. The beautiful Chinese style architecture is overlooking a river, making it the perfect spot for a few photos!

Prancing through Singapore’s beautiful Chinese Gardens. 💃 •••••• Such a great place to visit to get a totally different perspective on the little red dot, but do plan at least half a day for it as it takes quite a bit of time to get here from city centre. •••••• How are you spending the weekend? I’m catching up with some olds friends and settling back in to KL life for a while. I have 3 to 4 weeks to plan my next destination. Any recommendations? 😘 •••••• #thisissingapore #visitsingapore #thetravelwomen #speechlessplaces #beautifulmatters #dametraveler #darlingescapes #sheisnotlost #sidewalkerdaily #wearetravelgirls #femmetravel #ladiesgoneglobal #travelbloggeres #lifewelltravelled #travellife #mytinyatlas #neverstopexploring #backpackerstory #Iamtb #finditliveit #singapore #backpackwithme #letsgoeverywhere #girlsthatwander #travelgirlsgo #girlsborntotravel #culturetrip

15) Alkaff Bridge

For some reason this bridge isn’t insta-famous yet but it should be! The super colourful Alkaff Bridge is located near Robertson Quay, and makes for a perfect instagram photo.

16) Ministry of Communication and Information

Even the Government buildings in Singapore are beautiful! Make sure to stop and photograph the Ministry of Communication and Information whilst exploring Singapore. This spot is also called Old Hill Street Police Station on Google Maps.

TOP TIP – You can photograph the Ministry of Communication and Information at any time of day from the other side of the road (Hill Street). You just need to be patient for the traffic to stop at the red lights.

There really are leprechauns at the end of a rainbow! 🌈👩🏼‍🦰🤣 :::: Can you believe that this is a government building? 😍 Make sure to add the Ministry of Communications and Information to your Singapore itinerary! :::: Does anyone else think of Harry Potter every time they hear the word ‘ministry’? 🤣⚡️ :::: TRAVEL TIP – You can shoot here at any time of day, you just need to wait a bit for the red lights to stop the traffic! :::: EDITING TIP – Edited on @lightroom For desktop with my Golden Glow Pop preset. I then went into lens corrections and decreased the vertical transformation to -13 so that the building would appear straighter. #gingerpresets :::: #ministryofcommunicationsandinformation #prettylittletrips #singapore #visitsingapore #tlasia #asia_vacations #sheisnotlost #darlingescapes #dametraveler

17) Peranakan Houses (Koon Seng Road)

You will find the instagrammable pastel coloured peranakan houses on Koon Seng Road.

TOP TIP – As this isn’t really at attraction and is a bit out of the centre you can go anytime to take photos (but I would try to avoid the weekend if possible).

18) Chijmes

If you’re looking for a lunch spot in Singapore then head to Chijmes! There are a number of different restaurants which circle around a beautiful white church. The white arches and beautiful patterned floor are super instagrammable, especially if you are wanting to do an #ootd shot.

View this post on Instagram

Chijmes was former convent & school that has been converted into a lovely dining place. It has a big selection of bars&restaurants with international food. ⭐️ It is not the cheapest place to eat in Singapore, but it is definetely good and vibrant. – – – – – – – 💇🏼‍♀️ @number_76sg thanks for the amazing hair styling! . . . . . . #singaporelife #singaporehairsalon #singaporehairdresser #singaporehairstylist #singaporeexpat #dametraveler #damestravel #wearetravelgirls #traveladdict #ladiesgoneglobal #womenwhowander #seasia #femmetravel #prettylittleinspo #citizenfemme #singaporeinsiders #sheisnotlost #travelinglady #wanderlusting #femmetravel #chijmes #singaporeinsta #beautifulasia #exploreasia #oneoceanaway

20) Singapore Botanic Gardens (National Orchid Garden)

The Singapore Botanic Gardens are huge, diverse and best of all FREE!

Stroll around the lake and peak at the many turtles, enjoy the “walk of the giants” where you can bounce on the rope trampoline surrounded by huge trees, or head to the Orchid garden for only 5$ per person!

TOP TIP – The Orchid Garden is where you will find the insta-famous flower arch.

Live your life as you want and not how others would like you to live it 💭 . What if you would do things that you like and love and wouldn’t care what others think? Would you choose differently? Would you do something that otherwise you wouldn’t? Would you live your life more fully? . People usually tend to think too much other people’s opinions and make decisions based on those. But will it make you happy… Why we want to make decisions based on others opinions is that we all want to be accepted and have a feeling that we are a part of a group. But when being truly yourself, you will find those people who are really on your side to support you no matter what happens or whatever you decide to do in your life. They are called friends and family. . 📸 @mirocs

21) Sentosa Island

Once you have done everything that Singapore has to offer, head on over to Sentosa Island to enjoy a relaxed night near the beach. Not only will you find lots of palm trees to photograph but there’s also this cute bridge to take you to the Southernmost point of Continental Asia on Palawan Island!

Where are the most Instagrammable places in Singapore?

Below you will see a map filled with pins for all of the above instagrammable spots.

Screen Shot 2019-07-24 at 08.45.39

As you can see a lot of these are clustered in the centre. In terms of location you can visit the following around the same time:

Gardens By the Bay, OCBC Walkway, Cloud Forest/Flower Dome, Floral Fantasy, Marina Bay Sands, Art Science Museum, Helix Bridge, Merlion. Personally I would split these sites up over two days so you can ensure early entrance to the Cloud Forest and the Art Science Museum.

China Town, Fort Canning Park, Alkaff Bridge, Ministry of Communication and Information and Chijmes. You could then go visit Little India and Kampong Glam.

The Peranakan Houses, Singapore Botanic Gardens, Sentosa Island and Chinese Garden are all further from the centre (and not near each other) so you’ll need to work out which of these works for your itinerary. If you are flying in or out of Changi Airport then you can visit the Jewel then.

I hope you enjoy your time in Singapore, the most instagrammable city in Asia! I would recommend spending at least 3 nights in this incredible metropolis.
