Top 4 Selfie Spots in Singapore to Visit for a Photo

Anywhere at Marina Bay

This one is a little vague, but it’s true. Walk along the harbour at Marina Bay in Singapore, turn your back to the water, snap a selfie and it’s guaranteed to be pure gold. There are so many amazing buildings and structures circling the marina, from the swirling Helix Bridge to the iconic Merlion, that regardless of which way you’re facing you’re always going to get loads of good stuff in the background. Evening when the sun is setting and at night when the sky is black are the best times for photos, when the lights of the buildings are twinkling.

On the OCBC Skyway at Gardens by the Bay

If you’ve got a head for heights; the OCBC Skyway at Gardens by the Bay is a fantastic place to snap a selfie. This bridge stands 22m above ground, putting you in the perfect position to get serene and simple gardens into the background; alongside the futuristic and technological Supertrees for a quirky traditional-meets-modern feel. Although you need to buy an entry ticket to get into Gardens by the Bay and then pay a little extra to go on the Skywalk; the money is more than worth it. Just like at Marina Bay, you’ll get a totally different look depending on whether you visit during the day or at night; so choose carefully or go twice!

At the top of the Singapore Flyer

Get even better panoramic selfies by riding the Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest giant observation wheel. When your pod reaches the top of the wheel; you’ll be standing 165m off the ground. Thanks to the pods being made of glass, and the painfully slow rate at which they move; you will have plenty of opportunities and time to snap the perfect selfie with the whole of Downtown Singapore and beyond behind you; although it can be tricky getting a great shot if your pod is full. People get bored of taking photos after the first 15 minutes and sit down, so just give it a bit of time if your pod is too crowded at the start.

In front of the Peranakan-Style Houses at Joo Chiat

Look at a few images for Singapore and it appears to be a state-of-the-art concrete jungle; with avant-garde hotels, sky scraper office buildings and shopping malls the size of small towns. But there are some more traditional, laid-back parts of the island city-state, too. To prove that, head along to Joo Chiat and take a photo in front of the gorgeous Peranakan-style houses. These pastel-coloured two-storey terraced houses and shops boast detailed facades and delicate motifs that you just don’t expect to see in Singapore.
