Planning a trip to Singapore? As a place that perfectly strikes a delicate balance between an urban and tropical jungle, Singapore is one diverse island-state filled with spectacular sights and delights. No matter what kind of traveler you are, you won’t find it hard to find some seriously Instagram-worthy locations there. All it takes is some wanderlust and a keen sense of what looks good in a photograph.
1. Fort Siloso
One look at the place and you’ll instantly immerse yourself in Singapore’s rich military history. Fort Siloso was built by the British to protect Sentosa from invasion in the 1880s. Today, restored facilities and artillery are on display, so you can take as many dramatic or action-packed selfies as you want! Make sure you try the newly-opened Skywalk to reach Fort Siloso, so you can enjoy panoramic views of Sentosa!
2. Cable Car – Sentosa Line
If you don’t mind the height, here’s another one for you! The Cable Car – Sentosa Line has just been opened in July 2015, and it promises a spectacular view of the three spots it connects: Siloso Point, Imbiah Lookout, and Merlion. Marvel at the sights while you’re onboard a cable car, but don’t forget to snap some pretty selfies with your partner, your friends, or your family with this wonderful aerial view as your backdrop!
3. Madame Tussauds Singapore
Enter the famed wax museum, Madame Tussauds Singapore, and take a bunch of selfies with the biggest A-Listers in the globe! You don’t have to fly all the way to Hollywood or wait for your favorite Asian celebs to visit the country. They’re all here and waiting for you to pose with them at Madame Tussauds Singapore.
4. Marina Bay Sands
No Singapore trip would be complete without snapping a portrait (or dozens of them!) at the magnificent Marina Bay Sands. Stay at the country’s most spectacular hotel, or simply drop by to experience the Sands SkyPark® and be awed by the cityscape. You might also chance upon the theaters, carnivals, and other special events held in and around Marina Bay Sands from time to time, so there’ll be plenty of selfie opportunities. Make sure you have power banks and a lot of free space in your memory card!
5. Gardens by the Bay
Lastly, you can take portraits in the award-winning Gardens by the Bay, whether you want them during the day or at night. This spot is perfect for nature lovers who like communing with the elements in their snapshots. Do you want the tall, lush plants to creatively frame your shots? Do you want your photos to look dynamic and have the fountain streams shooting around you? Play like a child at Gardens by the Bay, but pose for pictures like a pro. You’ll be sure to take home some memorable selfies.
Getting lost in Singapore can feel like a dream fulfilled for the most adventurous spirits, what with so many beautiful images to indulge in. Make sure to keep your selfie stick handy and that phone fully charged. Happy trip!
