    Question Places for top-view view of the shipyard/port?

    I was wondering where are the places for shooting the cranes and ships at the shipyard/port in Singapore?
    I remembered coming across some photos of the cranes at the shipyard.

    I went to Kent Ridge Park but I find that the view is not really nice, to me.

    Anyone know of HDB flats' corridor or places which have the view of the cranes and ships at the shipyard/port?

    Thanks a lot.

    AFAIK, no residential buildings come close to shipyard or port. some commercial building may close enough, but you need to shoot thru glass window.

    you can write letter to the building management to get access to the roof top for shooting.

    I think some HDB flats in Sembawang have views of the shipyard. Not sure how close they are to the shipyard. But the residents there complained before because the black smoke from the shipyard dirtied their windows heh.

    For port, Mt Faber
    For shipyards, Jurong Hill (it is located further up the road from the bird park) but you need a long lens

    Those flats at Tanjong Pagar maybe can get a good view of Keppel Port. For the port along West Coast, can try the Telok Banglah flats. Even Haw Par Villa you can get a good view of the port.

    Jurong Hill is too far away from anything and Sembawang shipyard is definitely not close to any residential buildings.

    I google to locations of the suggested places.

    Telok Blangah is flats is easily accesible.
    Jurong Hill, I'll give it a miss.
    Sembawang port is too far from any HDB flats.

    So maybe I'll try Telok Blangah flats for a sunset..

    Thanks all!
