Four Instagrammable locations in Singapore
Today I want to share four instagrammable locations in Singapore. All these beautiful locations and buildings will sure add so much colour to your travels.
It’s been many years since I’ve been to Singapore, the last time was when I was transiting to New Zealand. My impression of it has certainly changed during this trip. For a start, I noticed a lot more interesting buildings around town. I don’t know if previously I just never noticed them, or whether these are due to preservation efforts in recent years.
Koon Seng Road 坤成路
These blocks of colourful houses are in Peranakan style, a fusion of Malay and Chinese dating back to many centuries ago. They are currently occupied as normal residents, but there is often a flow of tourists taking photos outside. I’m not surprised as they are so pretty, and are so Instagrmmable.
150D E Coast Rd
Here’s another group of pretty colourful houses that are also very Instagrammable. They are located down a little lane, and are famous for their unique preserved facade. Again, they are normal residents, I’d love to live in one!!
Haji Lane 哈芝巷
Haji Lane is a recommendation from a friend. She said this is a quirky lane with lots of interesting shops, cafes and bars. I arrived early afternoon when it was very hot. I think I must have been a bit tired from travelling, so just wasn’t in the mood to walk around. Having said that, the lane did look very interesting and I can imagine it has a great vibe in the evenings.
With 70% of Singapore’s population being Chinese, Chinatown is quite an important area in Singapore. I found that like many other Chinatowns around the world, the area is a little bit too touristy for my liking. The other thing about Chinatown, is that it seems to lag behind the rest of society by one or two decades. Depending on how you look at it, this may or may not be a bad thing. Personally, I think if it can preserve heritable and culture, it’s a good thing.
So here are my choice of four Instagrammable locations in Singapore, hope you like them.
