Best Hidden Photo Spots in Singapore that Only Experts will Know

Are you constantly on the lookout for a good photo spot to capture some Instagram-worthy shots?

Although places like Sentosa beaches, Marina Bay Sands, and Joo Chiat shop houses are great for photos, many other people probably have their photos taken there too…

It’s time to steer away from the usual spots and check out these hidden places to take your photos.

Marina Square Maze Staircase 


If you’ve seen mazes in movies and read about them in books, it is time to visit one in real life too!

The Marina Square Maze located in Marina Square is not only a good spot for you to play hide and seek, but also snap some candid photos as well!

Fort Canning Park Spiral Staircase

Fort Canning Park is beyond a historical site. There is an iconic spiral staircase that is great for photos too. If you are daring enough, you can sit on the letch of the staircase to achieve the best angle.

Anything for Instagram, right? 

The Alkaff Mansion 

If you want a photo with a minimalistic feel, with a little touch of mystery, this is the place for you. Apart from just taking photos there, The Alkaff Mansion has cafes, bars, and restaurants in case you are famished. 

On top of that, The Alkaff Mansion is also pet-friendly so you can bring your furry friends along for a photo too! 

Belayer Beacon

With just a 15-minute walk away from Labrador Park MRT, you can catch this iconic 7-metre-tall lighthouse structure.

Lighthouses are pretty uncommon in Singapore so people may even think that your photograph is taken overseas. 

Chinatown Complex 

Rooftops make a great photo spot too, but most of the time, many of us miss this out. Rooftops are great for street-style photos so dress up in your best streetwear and snap some photos! 

Tiong Bahru Neighbourhood

Tiong Bahru is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Singapore, and there are quite a lot of good photo spots too!

As you explore the neighbourhood, you will chance upon some street mural and shop that feels like you are being teleported back to the 90s. 

What if Your Phone Runs Out of Juice?

If you frequently take photos for Instagram or even do vlogs, it drains your phone battery quickly. Always carry a power bank with you so that you can continue to capture the moments you want!

If you are looking for a power bank, you can try out the AUKEY PB-WL02i 10000MAH Magnetic Wireless Charging Power Bank.


It has built-in safeguards that protect your devices against excessive current, overheating and overcharging. On top of that, it uses high-speed wireless charging and you can charge your device up to four times faster than conventional charging. 

For those who prefer to travel light, we recommend the AUKEY PB-N83 Mini USB C Portable Charger Black 10000mAh.

Aukey PB-N83S 10000MAH 22.5W Powerbank

This 10,000mAh portable charger is compact and can fit into your palm. Despite its small size, it has a high-speed charging function and supports up to 20W PD. You can charge an iPhone 14 to over 50% in less than 45 minutes. There is also a dual charging function that offers USB-C at one end and USB-A at the other. This means that you can kill two birds with one stone and charge two devices if you have to!
