Singapore may just be a dot on the map but there’s no shortage of insta-worthy spaces in this tiny country. There are always cute cafes, creative murals or colorful shophouses right around the corner. And every now and then, you’ll discover a new one pop into the neighborhood.

Living in Singapore for five years sure led us to a lot of photogenic spots. So I’m sharing with you 12 of the most instagrammable places I loved. Let me know if you’ve been to the same spot or if you have other places in Singapore you loved too.

#1 Singapore Botanic Gardens

Singapore Botanic Gardens is a huge area filled with different species of trees and flowers. And this lovely vine-adorned arches can be found in the Orchid Garden. Admission is free for Singapore residents.

#2 Marina Bay Sands Infinity Pool

The infinity pool of Marina Bay Sands hotel is one for the bucket list. The views of the gorgeous city skyline and Singapore bay from up here is really impressive, and selfie photos make it look like you’re living on the edge. The downside is only guests of the hotel have access to the pool.

Tip: If you want to stay at MBS Hotel, you can find great deals in Carousell for at least 20% off the advertised price.

#3 Marina Bay Sands Sky Deck

If you don’t fancy a stay in the hotel, the Sky Deck of Marina Bay Sands offers the same bird’s eye view of the city for S$20.

Address: 10 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018956

Being given the opportunity to move to Singapore and live a life I've never even dreamed about is a gift, and not one time in the past five years have I forgotten to be grateful for that. – It wasn't always smooth sailing. There were times when I’d feel less confident about myself, think small and doubt my dreams… time when I even question if it was worth it. But the answer I find within me is always a resounding YES. In my heart I knew, I wouldn't change a thing. – Our five years in Singapore is soon coming to a close. Full of experiences, memories, travels, hardships, smiles, tears and growth. I'm taking it all in. What a satisfying journey it has been. ♥️ #expatlife #honestcaptions #exploresingapore #sginstagram #visitsingapore #dametraveler
