Considered part of the “Far East,” both Singapore and Bangkok offer unique photographic opportunities, especially to the “western” photographer. Both Singapore and Bangkok (Thailand) are situated in the Malay Peninsula, with Singapore creating the southern tip of the peninsula, while the central and northeast regions makes up the south part of Thailand. Bangkok, the capital of Thailand, and Singapore are less than 900 miles (1500 kilometres) apart, however flights to Thailand and flights to Singapore can vary in price as much as $1000, so it is wise to check ahead, as there are many travel options between the two cities. A Bangkok flight from New York, for instance, can cost upwards of $1500-$2000, round trip, so keep that in mind when making your travel plans. Hotel prices can be quiet reasonable, however, but it’s wise to plan the trip well in advance to get the best deals. But enough about getting there, let’s take a quick look at what you can photograph once you’re there.
