Singapore after nightfall is nothing short of mesmerising. Skyscrapers start to twinkle, street lights have a story to tell, and a different energy can be felt floating in the air. Singapore was designed to keep visitors delighted after nightfall as well, offering unique experiences specifically created for nighttime entertainment.
1. Marina Bay Sands
The Marina Bay Sands building is as impressive during the night as it is during the day. From the Shoppes you can go out on multiple terraces for great night views over the gardens. For a breathtaking view of the city’s skyline, head up to the SkyPark, the observation deck of Marina Bay Sands.
2. Gardens by the Bay
The Gardens by the Bay are beautiful during the day, but it’s even more enchanting during the night when everything comes to life, especially the Supertree Grove. The trees become alive with a dazzling light and music show called the Garden Rhapsody.
3. Spectra Light and Water
Spectra Light and Water Show is a 15 minutes water fountain show with free entrance. The show is spectacular, I would even dare to say that it is one of the best water and light shows we have ever seen. You might want to check the schedule before planning your night.
4. Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade
The Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade is a well-designed pedestrian walkway that offers stunning views of the city skyline, iconic landmarks, and the Marina Bay itself. It is a popular destination to take a relaxing stroll and soak in the beauty of Singapore’s waterfront by night.
5. Bay East Garden
The Bay East Garden is one of the gardens that makes up the Gardens by the Bay, but it is on the other side of the Marina Bay. Because of its location, the garden offers breathtaking views of Singapore’s skyline, including landmarks like Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer.
Colorful and lively during the day, even more bright during the night. Explore the streets of Chinatown after nightfall to discover an area rich in culture, and heritage that offers a unique experience to visitors. Some bars and restaurants host traditional Chinese cultural performances, giving you the chance to witness captivating shows If you’re visiting Singapore during the Chinese New Year, then you’re in for an even more amazing spectacle.
7. Clarke Quay
This redesigned historical quay becomes very lively once the night falls. The area offers a plethora of bars, restaurants, and clubs in a vibrant atmosphere where you can savour delicious local or international food.
8. Singapore Flyer
If you wish to ride the Singapore Flyer, our recommendation would be to do it during nightfall. It offers breathtaking views, that are particularly magical during nightfall. As the sun sets and night falls, Singapore’s city lights start to twinkle, creating a stunning panorama of illuminated skyscrapers, buildings, and attractions.
9. Orchard Road
Orchard Road is one of Singapore’s most famous shopping an entertainment districts. Depending on the time of the year, Orchard Road may be decorated with festive lights during special occasions, such as Christmas or major festivals. The street transforms into a dazzling display of colors and festive spirit.
10. Night Safari
Experience the world’s first night zoo at Night Safari Singapore. Feel the thrill of walking in the jungle during the night, and observe the nocturnal animals in their natural habitat.
It’s hard to talk about spending your night out in a new city and not mention anything about safety.
Singapore has been consistently listed in the top safest countries in the world. It is generally considered a safe city, even after nightfall. The authorities take great responsibility in maintaining low crime rate, and city’s safety is one of the biggest draws for tourists.
There still are places that you should avoid during the night, especially nature trails that are not lit at all during the night. Some are, some aren’t like the Rail Corridor. The official recommendation is to get off the trail when the sun sets. You don’t need to worry much because places such as parks that are closed during the night will be marked accordingly.
Talking about the city streets, there are no big areas to avoid, but it is wise to practice some common sense safety: avoid poorly lit or deserted alleys, watch your belongings, use ride sharing services or licensed taxis, and always trust your instincts: if something doesn’t feel right keep your distance.
