    Hi there,
    I am heading to Singapore in three weeks for a 5 night stay.

    Would it be possible for anyone to give me a quick idea of some good photography spots? I have been told of a few already but interested to capture as much of the city as I can.

    I will try and capture Raffles, Merina Bay resort, some local markets such as Chinatown and Little India

    Cheers
    Carl

    I stayed in Singapore for a few days last March. To be honest, there is just so much to cover, you'll never be short of subjects. All the places you have mentioned are worth a visit (be warned, though, if you want to get to the top of the Marina Bay Hotel it'll cost you - S$20 when I was there). Both Chinatown and Little India are seething masses of humanity, with the latter in particular being perhaps a tad more 'ethnic', and the choice for photographers looking for candids especially is endless. If you want markets, depending on what days you will be in Singapore, the Thieves Market (a giant car boot sale, full of 'dodgy' stuff and 'dodgy' people!) in Little India is a must, but it's on a Sunday. The Tekka Market, also in Little India (665 Buffalo Road,) is daily, I believe.

    Clarke Quay offer a fabulous view of the Singapore skyline (the one you're most likely to see in tourist leaflets) and probably the best time to visit is just before dusk, when the skyscrapers are lit up but there's still light in the sky - around 7pm, from memory.

    I could go on, but there ain't enough space here. I will simply leave you with the offer that if you need any further advice or practical tips about how best to survive in Singapore, please do not hesitate to PM me.

    Regards.

    Bob

    The Singapore Flyer is a good viewing point for the skyline and the F1 track. The Casino/hotel/viewpoint will be a good viewing point as well. The harbour area is excellent, as are all the temples. Take a brolly! WinkWink
