Don’t let a lack of travel ruin your feed. There are plenty of things in Singapore you can do for the Gram.

That passport is as good as a dusty paperweight for now. While we won’t be snapping Instagrammable photos in far-flung destinations anytime soon, Singapore is surprisingly super Insta-worthy itself. If you’re a travel-starved soul, here are seven IG-friendly activities that’ll help you slay that feed:

Take an Insta-walk around town

If pretty backdrops get you all excited, then this walking tour will be right up your alley. On this excursion, follow a local influencer around town, and snap photos of old school buildings, pre-war shophouses, street art, and hidden spots such as Parkview Square, an art deco-style office building that locals commonly refer to as Gotham.

Nothing is as Insta-worthy as a beautiful picnic. But nobody wants to go through all that fuss of setting up, and that’s where Picneeds come in. These guys will put together a pro spread, complete with IG-friendly items such as cushions, baskets, flowers, and fairy lights. For a romantic night with your partner, go for the Under the Stars option.

Singapore has a plethora of gorgeous art hidden in plain sight. All it takes is a bit of searching. Explore some of the city’s finest works of art for instance, the gigantic bronze floating baby at Gardens by the Bay, or the Singapore Soul statue at Raffles Place, made up of steel lettered scripts of the four official languages of Singapore.

Hole-in-the-wall provision shops, roadside tailors, religious buildings, flower stores, and larger-than-life street art and murals – these are just some of the many noteworthy elements of both Little India and Kampong Glam. Pro tip: for taking cool photos, check out Gelam Gallery, Singapore’s first outdoor art gallery.

It’s all about quirky optical illusions at the Trick Eye Museum, where you can play around with the museum’s augmented reality (AR) technology and pose in front of artwork that uses a technique called Trompe-l’oeil, which turns 2D paintings into 3D images. One cool thing: you can touch, climb, and interact with every single exhibit.

With its lens-shaped entrance and an exterior built just like a German Rollei camera, the Vintage Camera’s Museum is Instagrammable even before you step in. Once you make your way past the doors, you’ll be greeted by an extensive collection of old-school photo-taking devices, from the largest camera in the world to James Bond-style spy cams.
