At first glance, Singapore is not a very big country and the go-to image of it is Marina Bay Sands or Gardens by the Bay. While these places are iconic and beautiful, there are many other Instagram worthy places in Singapore you can go to! Here are some of my favourites beautiful places in Singapore
We also got a glimpse of the Masjid Sultan, the Sultan Mosque, as we roamed the backstreets. Built by the Sultan Hussain at the early 19th century for the Muslim population, it’s a glorious sight and looks equally beautiful from the Muscat Street.
Nearest station: Bugis MRT
The Civic District with its British colonial architecture and high rises are another popular place to visit with the Singapore Sidecars. We breezed passed the downtown area too and it was super adorable!
Crazy Rich Asians
A new and popular tours with Singapore Sidecars is a visit to some of the Crazy Rich Asians’ film location. We drove passed the Young’s family house and went right up to Peik Lin’s house (which is on sale, by the way). There is actually a lot of gorgeous historic mansion around the Botanical Garden area, just like the movie and book said.
How to get there (otherwise): we ended up taking a Grab from Bugis, which costed 9 SGD but only takes 10 minutes. I was told you can take buses but even with that you’ll have to walk 10 minutes or so, and longer for MRT.
The People’s Republic’s Estate is a public housing complex with big green apartment blocks and Chinese Characters etched to its side. Many people also visit the courtyard to take photos, though I thought seeing it from the streets of China Town with the lanterns is a great way to combine the two into one photogenic spot!
