Great ways to enjoy Singapore's tallest buildings

From old and narrow streets



Over the roof of a pre-WW2 shophouse


Peeking out shly at you behind another one

Can sneaking up scrapers count as a way in which to enjoy the city's scrapers?

Sometimes you got to look carefully, this scraper tried to camouflage and merge into its surroundings


Trying to be invisible but spotted above the glass canopy

Wow! After seeing this it's hard to believe the inspiration came from somewhere else than the hindu temples.

It wasnt a problem for me as I could just walk in and look like I know where I was going. Anyway If I was stopped I would just give the innocent reply that I wanted to get a view out. Its the best answer I can think of and it sometimes works.
