Scenic routes for photo shoots

As you know, in Singapore, us automotive journalists are expected to know more or less everything. Or in Hokkien, "bao ka liao". Aside from driving the test cars around our little island to get the best feel of each car's characteristics, we also have to source for nice places to take photos, all for the reader's viewing pleasure.

However, being the small tiny island that we are, it's really not that easy to keep finding places that we, or even others, have not been to. After all, we don't want to end up having our works looking like it has been done before.

Now, I live in the North of Singapore, and being in such an 'ulu' place (believe me, if I get a dollar for every time someone complains to me how 'far' Woodlands is, I'll be a millionaire), I personally know of a few hidden spots where there might be a good photo taking opportunity. Places like Kranji, Lim Chu Kang and Sembawang have quite a good collection of scenic spots for photography enthusiasts.

That said, my knowledge only extends so far. So, using the power of the Internet, I was thinking maybe some of you may have any ideas as to where these little nooks and crannies of Singapore are.

Because, as some say, good things must share!

depending on how u define scenic, otherwise, an interesting place is the tuas west area by raffles marina.

take AYE all the way, turn left to raffles marina. and with it on your right, (on tuas west drive), this road is so wide and long (you cannot see the end of the road), it is unbelievable for singapore. go to the end, and u have an "interesting" place for yourself.
