IMHO from a high vantage point ... like top of Mt Faber, Kent Ridge or Henderson Wave Bridge for sunsets. Maybe, Changi Point for sunrise???

Sorry, but your question is rather vague. What do you want in your foreground? The sea? HDB flats? Hills? Kelong?

to be fair, google won't solve this query

flickr search and clubsnap search will..

it is not hard to find, there are only so many locations in singapore, stick around long enough in clubsnap, you will realise 80% of the common locations.

for a start, sunrise -

1) changi beach
2) punggol end beach
3) merlion park city hall

sunset -

1) punggol end beach
2) changi boardwalk
3) chinese gardens, jurong east
4) city hall area, merlion park also can, depending on time of year though

A good place to be to catch a good sunset would be at the Changi Boardwalk near the Changi Beach Club.

that have to depend on when is the period of the year, time of the day, position of the moon, so can know the tide level.......

anywhere dat faces east? :dunno:
If you're travelling at a velocity of 1,674.4 km/h towards the west at approximately 1900 to 1915 hours, you'll be to catch a sunset 24/7. But if the sun is at a fixed position in the sky forever, does it then constitutes a sunset? :think:

Try one of the overhead bridge over the AYE during dawn or evening. Can get some cityscape sunrise or sunset. If the condition is right, you may get some reddish looking sun.
