Singapore has been named the most Instagrammable place in the world for 2022, according to Travel site Big 7 Travel

The site listed 50 countries in its article, which saw Singapore beat out locales like Santorini, Tokyo and New York City. 

Each travel destination was scored off of Instagram hashtags, social audience and input from the site’s editorial team. 

Some of the Instagrammable landmarks in Singapore listed in the article are Gardens By The Bay’s Supertree Grove, Haji Lane’s wall art and the colourful houses on Koon Seng Road. 

However, Instagram-worthy spots in Singapore are not just limited to those. In fact, Youthopia has a series documenting picturesque neighbourhoods in Singapore called Heartland Hypegram. 

For example, one location Big Seven Travel didn’t mention is Yishun. A lot of Yishun’s Instagram-worthy spots – like Lower Seletar Reservoir and the murals at Block 674B – harken back to bygone eras of Singapore. Photos taken there will have a sense of nostalgia to it. 

Another location with the same vintage vibe is Jurong, which offers photo opportunities like Jurong Hill Lookout Tower and multiple spots in Jurong Lake Gardens. The expansive nature of the neighbourhood will make for some lovely shots of nature and older estates.

For a more modern photoshoot, check out Chinatown. The neighbourhood mixes Singapore’s history with modern architecture and backdrops. From the multiple aesthetic opportunities on People’s Park Centre’s roof to the open-air Chinatown Street Market, the neighbourhood is full of photo opportunities. 

Tampines has a flamboyant aesthetic, despite it being an older estate. The watermelon playground at Tampines Central Park is covered in colourful tiles and blocks like the ones on Tampines Street 45 are painted in vibrant colours that will brighten up your feed. As a bonus, a lot of the architecture plays with angles and shapes, to further add dimension to your photos. 

So if you’ve been feeling bored of your usual photoshoot locations, there are plenty of new spots to venture out to. After all, we weren’t named the most Instagrammable country in the world for nothing!
