Singapore is called ‘Instagram City’ for a reason. In this blog post, I will be sharing Instagram Worthy Spots in Singapore. From cute cafes, traditional and colorful shophouses, their gorgeous skyscrapers and many more. Singapore is very beautiful and photogenic that you never run out of places to take beautiful photos. Every corner is just so picturesque. I love to take beautiful photos of each country I visit especially the less touristy places. Follow along as I show you around the Instagram Worthy Spots in Singapore.

1. Museums in Singapore
I love to visit museums whenever traveling to a new country. You can learn a lot about their history and culture. I was able to visit two museums in Singapore. The first museum that we visited is the National Museum of Singapore. It is the oldest museum in Singapore and here you can see the stories of how life in Singapore was in the past.
The second museum that we visited is the National Galleria Singapore. This museum is not only about Singapore but also other Southeast Asian Countries. This museum is so big and it also has the largest collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian arts.
This is one of the most photographed spots inside the National Galleria of Singapore.

We always booked our tickets with Klook whenever we travel. I love that I can always find great deals and their ticket prices are cheaper compared to when you buy on the day.
2. Chinese and Japanese Gardens
This garden is located outside the city center. It is also one of the less touristy spots in Singapore. The Chinese garden has beautiful architecture, especially the pagodas. It feels like you are no longer in Singapore. The best part about this attraction is that it is free. There is no entrance fee to enter this garden.
The highlight of the Chinese garden is definitely the Twin Pagodas. It is definitely an Instagram worthy spot in Singapore. This 3-story twin pagoda is called Cloud Wrapped Pavilion and Moon Receiving Tower.
You can also climb to the top of the tower. There are spiral stairs and it is also not difficult to climb to the top. This twin pagoda is the most photographed in this garden.
The Japanese garden is on the other side and you need to cross the bridge named Bridge of Double Beauty to get there. It is quite a long walk but it is also really enjoyable since it is relaxing to stroll around this garden.
Compared to the bright and colorful vibe of the Chinese Garden, the Japanese Garden has a calm and peaceful vibe. This garden has a traditional Japanese style where you can see a traditional arched bridge, lanterns, ponds, and gravel chipped pavings. You would feel like you are in Japan.
3. Marina Bay and Central Business District Area
Singapore is known as a green city but it also has one of the most beautiful skyscrapers. I love taking photos around the Marina Bay and CBD area because the architecture is amazing.
This is one of my favorite Instagram worthy spots in Singapore. You can enjoy the view of both Marina Bay Sands and the CBD Area.
4. Merlion Park
A trip to Singapore is never complete without visiting Merlion Park where you can see the iconic symbol of Singapore. It is also located near the CBD Area.
Since the Merlion is the most photographed in Singapore, expect a lot of crowds. We visited at around 9 A.M and it was already busy. It’s not impossible to take a photo with no photo bombers though. Just find the perfect timing or go to the other side since there will be fewer people.
The Esplanade Bridge and Helix Bridge are also nearby and both are also beautiful photo spots in Singapore. I love how beautiful the pink flowers combined with the buildings look in the photos.
5. Gardens by the Bay
My favorite place in Singapore is without a doubt the Gardens by the Bay. This place is unique and very futuristic looking. There are three attractions in this place namely the Supertree Groves and OCBC Skyway, Cloud Forest and Flower Dome.
Unlike the Cloud Forest and Flower Dome which requires an entrance fee, the Supertree Grove is free. I recommend coming early at around 8 A.M to avoid crowds and to have a photo bomber less photo. If you want to walk at the OCBC Skyway between the trees, you need to pay 8 SGD.
Another Insta worthy spot in this garden is located inside one of the two conservatories, the Cloud Forest. Right when you enter, you’ll see a beautiful waterfall.
The other conservatory, flower dome has different themes depending on when you visit. We visited during October and the theme was ‘Sunflower Surprise’. The sunflowers with the castle in the background are the highlight of the Sunflower Surprise.
Another beautiful photo spot is the entrance of Pollen, which is a restaurant inside the conservatory.

6. Singapore Botanical Garden & National Orchid Garden
This is another beautiful garden in Singapore where you can enjoy the beautiful orchids which is also Singapore’s national flower. It’s a very peaceful garden, perfect for strolling,
The National Orchid Garden is inside the Botanical Garden and you need to pay a small fee to enter. The entrance fee is 5 SGD. One of the most photographed inside the garden is the beautiful arch you’ll see right when you enter,
7. Haji Lane
Just a few blocks from Orchard road, there’s a small street where you can see a lot of colorful shops and cafes. Haji lane is usually crowded and full of tourists but we went really early when shops were not yet open and it was also raining that’s why we were the only ones there.
8. Universal Studios Singapore
I love theme parks and whenever I visit a new country, I make sure to visit one. Every corner of the park is picturesque and Instagram worthy. Make sure to take the photo of the globe before the entrance. It is the one of the two Universal Studios Park in Asia, the other one is in Osaka where they have an attraction you can’t find here in Singapore which is the Wizarding World of Harry Potter

There’s a new attraction in Singapore, Jewel located in Changi Airport. It has the world’s tallest indoor waterfall. It was not yet open when we visited last October 2018. I hope I will be able to visit Singapore again and get the chance to see Jewel.
