3 min read

In our daily lives now, can you really say that you’ve gone somewhere with a good view if it’s not on your Instagram yet? For some of us Singaporeans, this is an even bigger struggle because of how small our tiny island is. Jewel? You might have been there five times already and it’s only just recently opened in April 2019. But have you heard of these hidden gems you can find right here in Singapore?

ABOUT THIS PLACE

Marina Square is one of the biggest shopping centres in Singapore, but did you know that shopping isn’t the only thing you can do there? Head to the rooftop to find your next photo shoot location. Built as an emergency fire escape route, this maze has a very stylish minimalistic design that is perfect for pictures. But be careful not to lose your way – it can be pretty confusing up there!

HOW TO GET THERE

Take the MRT to City Hall then walk to Marina Square. Go up to Level 2 and exit through the door next to Samsonite, then keep walking until you see a door labelled “Stair 30-D-1”.

2. TANJONG RIMAU

ABOUT THIS PLACE

This secret beach is located between Fort Siloso and Rasa Sentosa Resort. You’ll want to visit Tanjong Rimau when the tide is low to get the best experience. During low tide, much of the shore is exposed, allowing you to walk around. Some of the sights you will be able to include in your backdrop are Caribbean, Keppel Club, Corals, The Reflection, Labrador Nature Reserve and Keppel Marina. If you look closely, you might also find corals, red egg crabs, sea cucumbers and much more marine life here too.

HOW TO GET THERE

Take the MRT to Harbourfront then board the Sentosa Express to Siloso Point Station. From there, walk towards Rasa Sentosa Resort and you should see the start of Tanjong Rimau right next to the hotel.

ABOUT THIS PLACE

Formerly a British outpost, this group of art galleries and museums are filled with history and culture. At the same time, it’s also a great place to take some pictures. The white buildings provide an excellent backdrop for aesthetic pictures. While you’re there, also take some time to visit the various galleries and appreciate some art, or enjoy some ice cream at Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee.

HOW TO GET THERE

The closest MRT Station would be Labrador Park. Exit from Exit A then head towards Alexandra Retail Centre (ARC) Shopping Mall. From there, you will find a sheltered walkway across the road that will take you all the way to Gillman Barracks.

4. LAZARUS ISLAND

ABOUT THIS PLACE

If you’re looking for another beach to go to that isn’t in Sentosa, then Lazarus Island is the perfect place for you! In fact, this island contains some of the only natural sandy beaches in Singapore. It’s certainly not the most well-known beach in Singapore, which means you can take plenty of pictures without having to worry about others walking around in the background. Need a break from photography? You can even take a relaxing swim in the water.

HOW TO GET THERE

Take the ferry from Marina South Pier to St. John’s Island. Then, cross the bridge from there to Lazarus Island.

5. THE SUMMERHOUSE

ABOUT THIS PLACE

It’ll be hard to believe that you are still in Singapore when you get here. The Summerhouse is a restaurant located in the Seletar countryside housed in a colonial bungalow. You can even upgrade to one of these air-conditioned garden domes seen in the picture above for your dining experience. Otherwise, the aesthetic of the location makes it the perfect spot for your Instagram feed!

HOW TO GET THERE

The Summerhouse may be slightly more difficult to get to than the rest of the places on this list, but it’s definitely worth it. There are a few options to get there – you can get off at Serangoon and take bus 103 to Bef Seletar A’Space Rise, get off at Khatib and take bus 117 to Aft Seletar A’Space Rise or bus 858 to Bef Seletar Camp G (this option includes a 15-minute walk after you alight at the bus stop).
