The iconic infinity pool at the Marina Bay Sands hotel is one of the top spots for instagram photos. However, only hotel guests of the pricey hotel can use the pool.  We stayed here a couple of nights and found that the Marina Bay Sands worth the high cost.

Koon Seng Road in the historic Joo Chiat neighborhood has the prettiest houses in Singapore. Originally built in the 1920s, these structures were once inhabited by Peranakan Chinese, which can be seen in the intricate detailing and tiles adorning each home.

Fort Canning Tree Tunnel

Park Tree Tunnel instagram spot

This instagram spot at Fort Canning Park is literally hidden because it is below ground.

In order to take photos with greenery views from the bottom of spiral steps, you need to walk down the stairs into the tunnel and shoot from below. If you have a tripod or have another person to take photos, you can sit or stand on the ledge. You can also take photos from above for a different vantage point.

Tip: There is usually a line of people waiting get on the ledge to take photos, so you need to be patient and wait your turn. (We did not care to wait to get in the photo so we took a quick photo during the brief moment the ledge was empty.)

Location: Fort Canning Park is bounded by Hill Street, Canning Rise, Clemenceau Avenue and River Valley Road. The Tree Tunnel is at 51 Canning Rise, Singapore 179872 and you can find the location on google maps here.

The Old Hill Street Police Station is a historic building and former police station of the Singapore Police Force which now houses the Ministry of Communications and Information (MCI). The building has 927 windows with shutters painted in the different colours of the rainbow making it a great background for instagram photos.

The best spot to take photos is from across the street or from the median in the middle of the street at less busy times when there are no cars waiting at the traffic light.

It actually starting raining after we got here so we snapped a couple of quick photos before running inside where they have a small exhibit about its history.
