Singapore Through Instagram

Singapore Through Instagram

Three months ago we published Hamilton Island Through Instagram and received plenty of great feedback. So we’re delighted to now be able to share our adventures from Singapore as taken on Instagram.

You’ve probably read a lot of our stories from Singapore already but taking photos on the iPhone gives a completely different perspective and we hope you enjoy them. And with the imminent release of the iPhone 5 (we’re still stuck using a 3GS!), there will be plenty more of these posts to come.

Here is the best of Singapore through Instagram…

We spent our first night in Singapore at the Wanderlust Hotel and as one would expect when in such a unique hotel, we took plenty of photos.

The image on the left is the room we stayed in and the one on the right is of a Pop Art room which is easily one of the coolest hotel rooms we’ve ever seen!

Close to the Wanderlust were the districts of Bugis and Kampong Glam, two areas we haven’t really explored previously in Singapore. Kampong Glam is the center of Muslim life in Singapore and within it is the landmark Sultan Mosque, pictured below.

Our favorite area of Singapore is Clarke Quay which features many colorful buildings and is a great place to have lunch or dinner.

Further down the Singapore River is Merlion Park, home to the famous Merlion structure and a popular tourist attraction.

Merlion Park is also located near the bustling Marina Bay where you’ll find Marina Bay Sands and a Louis Vuitton Island Maison among other things.

While we were in the area we checked out a $7000 Straits Suite at the Marina Bay Sands. There aren’t too many words we can use to describe the awesomeness of this room!

One thing Marina Bay Sands is famous for is its Infinity Pool… and it didn’t fail to disappoint! We will swim here one day – it’s a bucket list item!

With so much to explore in Singapore, it’s easy to get hungry. And there’s no better fix than the outstanding Hainanese Chicken Rice from the Maxwell Road Hawker Centre.

Of course you could skip the food and head to the Singapore Flyer which we discovered was the perfect place to enjoy a Singapore Sling.

And once the sun goes down, you have to head back to the Marina Bay area (either on foot or on a Bumboat River Cruise) to take some beautiful night photos of Singapore. What a beautiful city!

Looking at these photos already makes us want to go back to Singapore. How about you?
