Singapore is home to countless Instagram-worthy spots, ranging from picturesque skyscrapers to bay views that are bound to take your breath away. However, if you’re looking for a good photoshoot spot that is off the beaten track, here is a list of hidden gems and secluded photo destinations that you won’t find in other typical guides.

Connecting Fort Canning Road and Penang Road is the renowned Instagrammable spiral staircase that everyone raves about. Although it’s not too much of an under-the-radar location, you may still have a hard time reaching here without navigation tips. Located in the Fort Canning Tree Tunnel near Dhoby Ghaut MRT, it is one of the most iconic photo spots for nature lovers. You can even find couples taking their wedding photographs at this spot. Be prepared to queue though, unless you manage to catch the spot during one of its non-peak hours.

This vivid and eye-catching two-storey bungalow is believed to be the last surviving Chinese villa in Little India, once owned by a local businessman who made and sold sweets. Thanks to its beautiful blend of Southern Chinese and European architecture, this building won the Singapore Institute of Architects Honourable Mention Award in 1991. Today, it is a heritage site that also makes a good backdrop for a mini photoshoot. Strike a pose in front of the kaleidoscopic features of this eight-room villa — it will be perfect for the ‘gram.

Lone Tree in Jurong Lake Gardens

Believe it or not, the Lone Tree in the Grasslands section of Jurong Lake Gardens is not an actual living tree – but fully man-made. Built from recycled iron reinforcement bars that were salvaged from old park pathways, the Lone Tree pays homage to the industrial origins of the Jurong industrial state area. It is a popular, ideal photo spot for quick photoshoots, but be warned there is minimal shade in the Grasslands. It’s recommended you visit in the late afternoon, when the sun is not too harsh.

Located in the industrial area of Bukit Merah is The Mill, a neo-Gothic twin-tower that is described as an “amalgamation of post-industrial American architectural influences”. Tall, dark, and mysterious, the building is bound to catch your eye, and reminds us of the residence of a certain well-loved Dark Knight hero in DC Comics. The Mill is also home to The Alchemist, a cafe with a pretty, minimalist backdrop perfect for photoshoots.

Berlayer Beacon

On the outskirts at the southernmost end of Labrador Park, you will find a scenic beacon that stands seven metres tall. In the mid 20th century, the Berlayer Beacon served as a navigational beacon for ships and boats that entered Keppel Harbour, shedding light on Singapore’s maritime history. We think it’s a pastel-perfect backdrop for your #OOTD shots.

With so many Instagrammable spots in this iconic Japanese restaurant, your toughest decision will be where to shoot first.
