With a myriad of Instagram opportunities at every turn in this clean and green Garden City, it's probably a digital crime not to take a snap of it for the 'gram. Beyond your gorgeously plated dishes are some of the best interior décor – think neon signs, pink accessories and tropical wallpaper. And if you're planning to keep the night young with music and drinks (in this economy?), you might as well hit up the most attention-grabbing nightclubs fit for your Instagram grid.
Priding itself as the biggest club in Singapore, MARQUEE Singapore stretches over 2,300-square-metres across three floors with sky-high ceilings that tower up to 30 metres – big enough for party animals to run riot. It also features a three-storey slide and a giant indoor Ferris wheel that offers revellers an unparalleled view of the nightclub. Each pod is equipped with a photo booth to capture Instagrammable moments in gifs. And did we also mention the massive screen that projects stunning visuals along to the club bangers?
Of all the rooftop bars in all the towns in all the world, CÉ LA VI’s one of the top (geddit?) ones – its inclusion in DJMag’s Top 100 Clubs of 2016 list is a testament to that. Its architecture and interior design takes inspiration from ‘the wonders of Asian civilisation’ – so expect tributes to 16th-century Javanese poetry and prints, 18th-century Balinese woodwork, and the architecture of the lost 9th-century Khmer empire. Vertical gardens, stencil-etched timber and other rainforest-inspired elements turn the club/lounge into a lush, sky-high oasis amid a concrete jungle. And beyond the interiors, the view of the city skyline at night is as Instragrammable as well.

The iconic nightclub from The Bund in Shanghai has ventured over to Singapore shores, opening on the 71st floor of Swissôtel The Stamford.

This nightclub at Marina Bay’s Pan Pacific Hotel is a high energy buffet of crazy times complete with state-of-the-art L’Acoustics sound system and a 45-foot-long high-resolution LED wall to help elevate guest experience to the new heights. There are also life-sized cages if you'd like to shimmy and shake away from the sweaty crowd.
Named after a fictional owner, Lulu's is the darling of Singapore’s impeccably dressed it-crowd, seducing them night after night with her sexy yet quirky interiors on Raffles Boulevard – think 60s go-go bar resurrected with a modern makeover.
