    Default Where is the best place to get a shot of all the tankers around Sentosa?

    Hi,

    I'm not a native Singaporean, so I don't know that much about the locations around the island. But I remember when flying in that there was sooooo many tankers laying just off the coast of Sentosa, and I'd like to get a good shot of that before I have to leave again.

    So, do you guys have any idea of where I should go for the best shot? I'd like to get as many as possible in the picture, and preferably not just ones far out in the distance... And I don't want to take it through the window of a plane :P

    Also, if any of you have ever taken any shots of the tankers, I'd love to see them

    Kind regards

    Go to the south most point of Asia continent which is located at Sentosa. There is a steel bridge linking the place from Sentosa's Palawan beach. You can go up 4 stories to one of the two towers with you 600mm lens to have a shoot. Mind you, the tankers are parked pretty far away (that's why the 600mm lens).

    Hope you enjoy your stay in Singapore.

    Check the Marketplace, Commercial Services. There are rental offers.

    A 600mm may be difficult to get.

    An alternative is a Sigma superzoom up to 500mm, or something up to 400mm and a teleconverter. Probably have to focus manually.

    You can take something like this from one of the tall office tower in Raffles Place or Marina Bay.
    Most likely you will need a 300mm but maybe 200mm possible.



    Or can take from some cruise and it will go near those tankers like this..

    Thanks for all the comments guys

    Lifestyle, are there any of these that are accessable to the public? I stayed at the Sail for a while, but I didn't find anywhere from there where I could take such pictures as the ones you are posting

    Hi trifecta,

    The first pic was taken from ORQ (building at the back of Sail). You should be able to get a better shot from the Sail if facing the right side. You might want to ask your neighbours

    Good luck

    I saw these tankers up close when I was traveling to/for Batam. Maybe you could try that.
