This Photobooth Has A Travel Theme, Pretend It’s The Trip That Made It Out Of The Group Chat

Solace Studios – Transport-themed photobooths for $10


Travelling and posing at self-photo studios in Singapore are favourite pastimes amongst Gen Zs and millennials – but what if you could combine both? If you’re looking for a quick getaway with your boo, but your bank account says otherwise, get your couple travel pics at Solace Studios’ transport-themed photobooth.


Plane lavatory-themed photo booths at Haji Lane

At the Haji Lane outlet, the Korean photo studio has set up 3 self-serve booths designed to look like a plane lavatory. Each booth comes with a mirror, fake sink, and even the sliding locks they have on flights. There are also cute aeroplane windows and signages to zhuzh up the bathroom layout, and add to the illusion.

It’s not just the booths that are aeroplane-themed; the entryway and props are too. You can find sunglasses or plushy headbands, or opt for passport covers from a variety of countries. There’s even a metal suitcase for you to roll and sit on for pics.

Each booth fits up to 4 pax, so you can get squad photos for your group chat if that Bali trip didn’t take off.

There’s no need to extend your arm out to use the 0.5x setting on your iPhone camera. The photos are taken with a high-angle camera, which ensures that you get the most out of the booth in your photo, though you can always take your pictures at normal angles with your phone.

There are plenty of adorable frames to choose from, such as regular 4-picture frames with aeroplane stickers or a mock boarding pass with faux flight details on the side. You get 2 multi-picture frame strips or 1 single-frame strip for $10 and after that, it’s $2 for every additional strip.


Subway-themed photobooths at Orchardgateway

If the plane pics aren’t enough to fool your friends, being on a New York City subway probably would. Solace Studios at Orchard Gateway closely mimics the iconic underground transport system. You’ll spot similar details like subway maps, gantries, and steel sliding doors.

Psst, you don’t have to worry about unknowingly breaking any MRT rules here. Of course, don’t go all feral and break every law in the book, duh.

You can mimic all your K-Drama or Hollywood poses here without looking too delulu.

You’re spoilt for choice here with the number of photobooths here. Pick from Grey Classic Booth, High Angle Train Cabin, Train Door Cabin, Fisheye Lens Train Cabin, and White Cabin Booth.

The classic booth is the cheapest at $10 for 2 photo strips or 1 multi-frame printout. For those coming in groups, we recommend the cabins, which can accommodate more people within a frame. It’s slightly pricier at $12 for the same number of prints. You can also request for more prints at $2 each, and if you’re ready to hard launch bae on IG, digital files and gifs are free to download.


Other photobooths at Solace Studios’ main branch

If you haven’t had enough, head to Solace Studios’ main branch a few doors down from the aeroplane-themed outlet. This outlet has 2 levels of 9 different rooms – which means plenty of photo ops for the whole gang.

Level 1 has standard photo booths with pastel backgrounds and a normal angled camera, along with 3 vanity stations with hair dryers, mirrors, and props to get yourself dolled up. On level 2, you’ll find their experimental rooms – 2 with low-angle cameras and another 2 with fish-eye lenses. You can’t get any more Y2K than this, with digicam props and music-video-esque shots.
