Join the adventure as we uncover five scenic locations for your next photo shoot.

Head to these five places if you love taking Instagram-worthy outfit of the day (OOTD) photos. Not only are they scenic, they also give your photos an out-of-Singapore vibe. Go on, uncover the secrets of our urban jungle.

1. Lalang fields at Punggol Waterway

BRING INSECT REPELLENT AND WEAR SHOES
Officially opened in October 2011, the Punggol Waterway has all the makings of the perfect place to wind down and escape from your worries. It features a bar, bicycle rentals and various eateries.

Visitors can escape to the lalang fields situated just a short walk from the hustle and bustle for a quick photo shoot. Be warned however, beautiful as it seems, to avoid the place on a rainy day and make sure to wear soil-proof footwear when entering the field.

2. Japanese Cemetery Park

ADORNED WITH VIOLET FLOWERS, THE CEMETRY MAKES FOR A FRESH OOTD

Creepy as it may sound, this place has all the right colours and architecture for that perfect shot. Set amongst bungalows in Hougang, the Japanese Cemetery Park ceased burials in 1973 and was made a memorial park in 1983.

It is the largest Japanese cemetery in Southeast Asia and features beautiful arching shelters lined with green leaves and purple flowers – making it totally suited for that flora themed OOTD.

It is quiet, well maintained and even has resting areas if you are tired. Just do not come here at night… unless you are a thrill-seeker.

3. Pasarbella at Grandstand

A SNEAK PEAK BEFORE YOU EXPLORE PASARBELLA

Good food, good ambience and very OOTD-worthy. The wood-themed indoor market is decked with numerous shops and has all-around architectural goodness, complete with warm ambient lights and beautiful decorations – perfect for that OOTD shot.

4. Bukit Timah Railway

THE RAILWAY TRACK MAKES IT SEEM LIKE YOU ARE IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!

Suspended just above the busy Bukit Timah Road on a wooden frame, the rustic railway is adorned with white pebbles and a rusty brown track. It is an all-time favourite for wedding couple shoots, so if the place is occupied, you will have to wait for your turn to snap your OOTDs.

That aside, it is a picturesque location and the wooden railway structure makes for an amazing shot. Do note that wearing heels to the shoot is ill-advised.

5. Japanese and Chinese Gardens

BEAUTIFUL BACKDROP ON TOP OF THE RED BRIDGE

Located at the western part of Singapore, it might be a chore for easties like me to get there. But pictures wise, it is totally worth the travel.

The entire garden is OOTD-worthy, but there is one spot that you cannot miss: the red bridge located along the Japanese side of the gardens. Not only does the red bridge stand out, the backdrop of forests is as breath-taking.

The place is also filled with majestic egrets so do not be alarmed if you bump into any of them there.
