The most Instagrammable Chinese New Year decorations in Singapore

We've mapped out Instagram-worthy spots for you to capture your best angle during this festive period

By Cam Khalid

The Chinese New Year festivities truly begin when the streets of Singapore are dressed to the nines with attention-grabbing lanterns and life-sized installations. Leading the zodiac pack this year is the metal ox. The zodiac star is marching its way around the city via striking horticultural and lantern displays at Gardens by the Bay, brightly lit installations at Chinatown, cool art pieces at Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre, and more. And unlike IRL oxen, these Instagram-worthy ones are selfie-ready for the 'gram.
