Marina BayTaking pictures allows you to treasure the moment and keep it for life, especially when visiting a foreign place. As a tourist, you may feel the urge to take a snapshot of everything you see. If you want good shots, then it’s best to have an idea which tourist spots give the best views possible. Here are some examples:

The Merlion

The Merlion is Singapore’s national icon, a mythical creature with the body of a fish and the head of a lion. There are five official Merlion statues you can take pictures of – two at Merlion Park and one each at Mount Faber, Sentosa Island and the Singapore Tourism Board headquarters.

If you want to take pictures with the Merlion that sprays water from its mouth, then go to Merlion Park in front of Fullerton Hotel. For those who want to see its larger-than-life version, the statue at Sentosa Island is where you should visit. Sentosa Merlion is where tourists could set foot inside the 60-metre Guardian of Prosperity, while enjoying the 360-degree view from the top.

Traditional Architecture

Singapore is home to a rich colonial heritage. If you want a stylish yet elegant backdrop, why not visit the National Museum? Its architectural design makes it ideal for different sorts of formal photo shoots, like weddings. You don’t need to pay a nominal fee if you’re simply taking pictures for personal use.

Urban Cityscapes

If you want a bird’s eye view of Singapore without riding an aircraft, you can visit about 120 skyscrapers in the Marina Bay area alone. Most of these have set up rooftop restaurants to give customers a remarkable view while dining. The most popular is 1-Altitude Bar at One Raffles Place, the highest al fresco bar in the world, which is 282 metres above sea level. Other popular rooftop views are at Marina Bay Sands, Pinnacle@Duxton and Swissotel The Stamford.

Get your camera and your best selfie pose ready, as you’ll definitely find something worth capturing in Singapore. From tourist spots to iconic sights, you won’t only enjoy the view but have souvenirs to take home and treasure.
