Located in Morpheus's exquisite Atrium, the Pierre Hermé Lounge is the perfect spot for that divine Instagram post. Ruth loved "the angular open cage design as its reminiscent of the building’s striking exterior," creating a great backdrop whilst holding a delicious treat to make you the envy of all your Instagram followers.

Tip: Come early or late in the day if you're after a clean background, as due to its grandeur, the Atrium tends to be one busiest spots in Morpheus at any given time.

Chinese restaurant ‘Yí’ is located on the 21st-floor sky bridge, bringing together the two towers of Morpheus. Its dragon-like scales of spiky, golden structures divide the space into intimate and private dining areas. Eleanor simply loved how the structural design of "Morpheus has many windows to bring the outside in whilst offering incredible views of the city below."

Tip: Book your table during the golden hour (right before sunset) and watch as the metallic spikes catch and reflect the natural light and shadows which when wearing something floral or light will also help add a stark contrast to the backdrop.

Designed by the creative agency Malherbe Paris and located on the Boulevard at City of Dreams, this oversized classic Cadillac is filled to the brim with gold bars (if only they were real). This is just one of the many "quirky interactive installations for fun selfies," recommended by Ruth.

Tip: Don't be afraid to climb right in and get photographed from a higher angle to show off the scale of the car.

Head up to the 23rd floor of Morpheus to find a two storey tall sculpture by Kaws called "Good Intentions," which “is so relevant in today’s society”. Created to depict the relationship between parent and child, the looming black structure set against the building's exoskeleton creates a truly surreal backdrop. 

Tip: Angle your camera upwards suggests Charles, so that the sculpture looms even larger than in real life, and dress in monochrome for the ultimate black and white shot.
