Singapore is a bustling city that boasts a unique nightlife that takes advantage of the warm weather and high-rise buildings. With award-winning restaurants, tons of spectacular views and a lively culture, it’s easy to keep busy after sundown. Here are 6 must-try evening activities in Singapore:
Grab a drink at the highest point in the city
Year-round balmy temps mean that Singapore is one of the best places to spend an evening outdoors and you can take in the best views of the island but heading skywards. Ride the elevator 63 floors up to the top of One Raffles Place to get incredible (and the highest) views at 1-Altitude, or make your way to the top of the Marina Bay Sands North Tower where you can settle into sofas and candle light while gazing upon Singapore’s glitziest sites.
Sing your heart out at karaoke
Karaoke is practically a national pastime, so we urge you to give this a go especially if you’ve never tried it before. Karaoke is done in private, rented rooms so bring ten of your best friends or new acquaintances. If you want upscale karaoke, head to Ziggy’s where you rent private rooms for around $S60 and each room has swanky couches, four wireless mics (making duets and group singing a must), props and a mini bar. If you want a cheaper option, try K Box or Cash Studio. There are plenty of karaoke spots in the city so grab a mic and get ready to sing your heart out.
Catch an evening light show
Spectra, the Marina Bay Sands light and water show is a free, nightly event that is great to catch on an evening stroll through the area. The 15-minute spectacle is combines music, water and light and is powered by lasers, fountain jets and visual projectors. Catch the show at 8pm and 9pm.
Indulge in a little fine dining
With world-class hotels and chefs in the city, there’s no shortage of award-winning food to try, so if you can, try to go all out for at least one meal. For spectacular decor as well, book a table at Forest for the five-course Chinese menu in an open plan designed to look like a white forest. We also recommend grabbing a steak at Wolfgang Puck’s CUT or trying Candlenut Kitchen for crab curry or the elaborate tasting menu.
Have a cocktail in a tree
You read that right. At the Gardens by the Bay, you can head up to SuperTree, an IndoChine bar and restaurant which is located in the top of a one of the giant man-made trees. The experience is like no other as you settle into the canopy with your drink and see the world the way birds do.
