The Art Science Museum is one of the most recognizable buildings in the Singapore skyline. Not only will you want to take some snaps of the outside of this unique flower-shaped building, but the inside is equally Instagram worthy! Here you will find exhibits, and workshops that blend art, science, culture, and technology. While most of the exhibits are temporary, Future World is a permanent one and is where you will find the Crystal Room which will add some sparkle to your pics. And when you are done you can enjoy the rest of the museum!
Not only is Changi Airport the world’s best airport for the 8th year running, but there are many great opportunities for photos too especially in The Jewel! Snap pictures of the breathtaking HSBC Rain Vortex and Shiseido Forest Valley, or the Canopy Park (where you go down slides, run through mirror mazes, and bounce through sky nets). Not only will you get some great pics for Instagram, but you will have a blast getting them too!

While the library isn’t typically a place you would think of to take some insta-worthy pics, you will want to take your camera to the Library @ Orchard. With over 100,000 books on hand and sleek wave-like bookshelves, this place is a photographer’s dream! Note the best place to take a picture here is to look down while climbing the stairs between levels 3 and 4. And while you’re there it’s a good excuse to get some family reading time in!
As the name suggests, Toa Payoh Dragon Playground, has a huge dragon in the middle of the playground and is one of the only dragon playgrounds left in Singapore.
The body of the dragon is made up of a series of brightly colored steel rings for the kids to climb up and leads to the dragon's head slide. It’s the perfect place to get some action shots of the kids playing, while those that grew up in Singapore can reminisce about the good old days.

There is no mistaking what this museum is about, as the entryway to the Vintage Camera Museum is in fact a giant camera. The kids will love taking selfies for Instagram here. And once you are done with the snaps outside, check out the inside of the museum where you will find that the usual museum rule of "look and don’t touch" doesn’t apply here. You are encouraged to pick up and use the cameras to take selfies inside this museum!

Haw Par Villa is an Asian cultural theme park that aims to teach children about Buddhist, Confucian, and Taoist mythology. The park spans over 8.5ha and has over 1000 colorful statues in the park. The most famous, gruesome and Instagram worthy part of the park is the 10 courts of hell, which depicts the punishments that are given to you once you die based on the sins that you have committed in your lifetime.

This is for all the Friends TV show fans out there! Right here in Singapore you can have a meal at Central Perk which is a recreation of the coffee shop where the beloved Friends characters hang out. From the Central Perk lounges to Monica’s kitchen and Chandler and Joey’s foosball table, fans of the show will have fun taking snaps with the different sets here. The food served is a mixture think: pizza, pasta, ribs, and turkey (to name a few). And what's more, they host comedy, trivia, and open mic nights here.

The White Rabbit is a family-friendly restaurant that is housed in a restored chapel. You will not only want to take some snaps of the carefully plated European food served here but of the beautifully restored stained glass windows in the Chapel. Outside you will find The Rabbit’s Hole which is a Gin and Wine Garden set on a lovely manicured lawn. There is literally a hole in the wall which is the perfect spot to take those pictures for Instagram.
Marina Bay Sands is one of the most photographed landmarks in Singapore, but did you know that there is a great location in the Gardens By The Bay called The Water Lily Pond that will give you one of the best shots? What’s great about taking pictures at The Water Lily Pond, is that along with Marina Bay Sands, you will also get some of the SuperTrees in your shot juxtaposed against the lush garden and lilies on the pond.
If you are looking for a place where you can get some family pics with a fabulous view of the Singapore skyline for a fraction of the price of visiting a fancy bar with the same view, then head up to the 50th floor of The Pinnacle @ Duxton.
