Head to the rim of the waters at the end of Sembawang Park and take your photo with the metal cranes in the background. Alternatively, walk along the beach for the classic sun-over-the-horizon shot.
Walk to the end of Heritage Bridge and, if the moon’s in alignment, you might even capture it beside the sun – no that spot isn’t dust on your lens. Or take your photos from the jetties near PA Water-Venture – there, you’ll be able to add elements to the image such as a boat and jetty.
It’s easy to tell whether a picture is of the sunrise or sunset at East Coast Park: facing the sea, the sun rises on your left and sets on your right. For the best views, either go down the Bedok jetty or park yourself on the breakwater near carpark F2.
At Merlion Park, frame the mythical beast in the foreground with the sun rising between the Singapore Flyer and the ArtScience Museum. Otherwise, walk towards One Fullerton to capture backlit silhouettes of the Flyer and Marina Bay Sands as they frame the rising ball of fire.
There's an aptly named Sunrise Bridge at Punggol Waterway to take your pictures at. But walk further 'til you reach the Lorong Halus Bridge. The red metal structure was made to look like an old, steel railway bridge and makes for a great frame for the sunrise. It’s beside the Insta-worthy lalang fields, too.
Alight at Kadaloor LRT.
Ride the escalators to the top of the overhead bridge to Marina Bay Sands and point your camera at Gardens by the Bay for an image of the sun climbing over the Supertrees. Or head to Dragonfly Lake in the Gardens (the park opens at 5am) to snap an image of the sunrise, framed by the Supertrees, domes and their reflections on the water.
