Me and my gf decided to go out for some night photography just now and our 1st stop was the Raffles hotel. I began to set up my tripod and a few mins later a staff came up and told me that no tripod is allowed. I asked him why and he just told me that it's the hotel policy. He said that I can take a photo without my tripod.
We were standing outside the hotel facing the lobby. The area where the taxis come in and go.
Anyone had this experience at the hotel before? Anyone knows why no tripod is allowed?
