Where is the best spot to take a photo at Jewel?


It's a massive dome shape structure with many Instagram worthy locations. The most popular one will be the world's tallest indoor waterfall - the magnificent rain vortex . There are also other locations within Jewel for you to take that OOTD  photo. With over 10 floors and a whopping 135,700sqm of space, it may be mind blogging to decide where to take the photo.  

Do not fret , as this guide will cover all the essential locations for that perfect picture. Without further ado, here are 14 other alternatives to shoot your best photo in Jewel.

1 Immersion Garden  - Basement 2  

We will kick off the list from the basement and work our way up the floors.
