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?

    Great photos, we want to go back to Singapore to! Its such a fab place. Did you get to visit the new gardens they have opened by Marina Bay Sands? They look great and they were building them when we were there. Also we are really jealous to see you got to try out the infinity pool!

      We had a great view of the gardens from the SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands but unfortunately didn’t make it over there – was too hot that afternoon to be walking around with all of our camera equipment! They did look great though for a sunset stroll. We didn’t get to try out the pool (it’s reserved for hotel guests only), we only got to walk past and take a couple of photos! Next time, we tell you, next time!

    I will never say no to going back to Singapore. Trying to combine a quick trip up with a trip to Australia in fact. Gorgeous tour of S’pore through Instagram. Can’t wait to see what you do with the iPhone 5! Maybe some more food pics? ;-)

      That sounds perfect – if you need any advice about Singapore or Australia, don’t hesitate to ask! And yes, plenty more food pics will be coming – especially since the new iPhone will work a lot better in low light situations! :D
