Spice up your Instagram feed with a picture at one of the many photo spots around the airport! These beauties are cardboard art pieces that feature local places of interest, such as Esplanade, Sultan Mosque, and Singapore Flyer. It’s a collaboration between Band of Doodlers and Paper Carpenters. There are 32 items of 17 designs across 5 places, and this specific display can be found in Terminal 3 near the luggage belts. Just dare to tell me that this won’t capture your interest, because I think this is a bangin’ job!

Look closer and you can see the teeny little doodles around the art piece. It’s a small detail, but one that makes it just that much cooler.
