    Default "Classic" Photo Locations for Newbie

    Greetings-

    I will be visiting Singapore for the first time in May '02.

    With just a few days to do the tourist thing and photograph the city I am looking for help on some of the better locations and hints for photographing:

    The city skyline (day and night)
    MTR system
    Harbor and Container Port
    From the cable cars to Sentosa Island
    Night Safari (?)
    and other highlights

    I will be traveling with a Olympus 3030 and Sony VX1000.

    Thanks for your help.

    Try Mount Faber at night when you are taking the Cable Car to Sentosa. No point taking photos on the cable car, too shaky. As for skyline try the vicinity of Marina Square, Suntec City, and near the mouth of the Singapore River. Try places of interest including Botanic Gardens, Zoo and Jurong Bird Park.

    If you are not too afraid of mosquitoes, try Chek Jawa at Pulau Ubin. It's supposed to be a coral reserve but control for visitors are rather tight, and the better areas for photography may already be out of bounds. Can someone else correct me if I'm wrong?
