    Defintely Singapore Botanic Gardens! I've been there 5-6 times, and everytime I went, my shots are different, and improving. That is if you like nature.

    What do you intend to shoot first? You can try the parks or if you want street shoots, can go to Little India or Chinatown.

    I was thinking more to an 'ulu' place. Or somewhere that gives a 'back to the past' kinda feeling ^^"

    Depends on what you're looking for.

    Rustic? Then try looking for the older kampongs like Ubin, Buangkok, etc...

    Like the rest, I find Singapore Botanical Gardens a very nice place to spend the morning. Also, not forgetting the reserviors (lower/upper Pierce, MacRitchie). Changi Point's another good place.

    i believe thread starter doesn't have a tripod yet..so places like lower/upper Pierce, MacRitchie & Changi Point's, which are more popular for the sunrise or sunset type of shoot is not so ideal for newbies practise..

    for rustic feel..maybe u wanna try Punggol Matilda's house or here..
