    I will be going to Singapore in mid April 2016 on a family holiday for 5 days. I plan to cover the usual touristy spots like Universal studios, Sea world aquarium, Jurong bird park, Night safari, Marina Bay etc... So besides these what are the best places for photography in Singapore.

    The kit that I am planning to take is P7-14 or O9-18 depending on if I need to use filters, P25, O45 and P100-300. I will take my GX-7 and EM-5 II. I have a CPL, ND filters from 3-10 stops and square grad filters. Is it better to take my Sirui travel tripod or is a gorillapod SLR zoom enough?

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    You can have a look at my somewhat uneven collection, see if any locations catch your eye.

    Some tourist shots from Singapore, while visiting NUS/IMS

    I'd say chinatown, and the botanical garden should probably be added to your list. I also had fun shooting at night from some (apparently famous) rooftop bar downdown
