Thread: Looking for some advice on photo spots in Singapore

    Default Looking for some advice on photo spots in Singapore

    I will be visiting Singapore later this month for 4 days. I will be staying in a hostel in Chinatown and will have a panasonic gf3 with 20 and 14 with me. I am looking for some interesting spots for photo opportunities. I am generally interested in architectures (e.g. helix bridge) and street photos (e.g. food stalls). Any suggestions?

    The entire Chinatown is a treasure trove for street shooting. You can also take the subway (we call MRT) NE line down to little India from Chinatown station, which is another awesome area for street shooting.

    BTW welcome to Singapore.

    You can also read up on the Singapore thread in the Travel section. We have tons of spots listed.

    the whole China town,
    don't forget the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple

    for Marina Park, Singapore River
    start from MBS (Bayfront Station), than go Helix bridge, Singapore Flyer,walk along the Marina Promenade, Esplanade, till Merlion Park, than go Fullerton One, Fullerton Hotel, along Singapore River, Boat Quay, Clark Quay, than take a train from Clark Quay station or bus back to China town


    for Little India
    take a Train to Little India Station, than shoot your way to Farrer Park Station.

    For CBD,
    take a train to Raffles Place, shoot around One Raffles Place, than shoot your way to
    Lau Pa Sat, than Go Marina Bay Finance district, end at MBS (Bayfront Station)


    Hope this help.

    Don't forget bugis street.

    Take a train to bugis, exit the building and cross the road. The entire area is great for shooting market stalls etc. there's also a famous temple nearby that you can go to as well.

    and if you want to see the dirty areas of Singapore, the RAWNESS of human nature...

    you can try the streets of Geylang.

    there are some prerequisites though:
    1) wear running shoes
    2) dress nondescript
    3) travel light
    4) don't bring a huge-ass camera
    5) be aware of your surroundings
    6) have a getaway car within 2 minutes of wherever you are
