There are so many fun things to do in Singapore. For the most part, exploring is done during the day. But what most people forget is that Singapore comes to life at night. With many great places to eat and so much entertainment to view. So here are 20 fun things to do in Singapore at night.
Watch the light show at Supertrees Grove.
Gardens by the Bay are beautiful with their flora and fauna; however, at night, the trees light up, and a garden Rhapsody comes to life. This free entertainment has two-time slots; the first show starts at 7.45 pm, 8.45 pm (Daily).
Enjoy Turkish ice cream in Clarke Quay.
Okay, so there is much more to do in Clarke Quay than enjoying Turkish ice cream, but it is a great place to start. Although the ice cream is excellent (a little sticky to ensure the tricks can be performed), the performance in itself makes the ice cream a little more enjoyable. Nevertheless, Clarke Quay is a great place to visit Singapore at night.
Ride the luge at night
There are many things to do in Sentosa, including riding the luge at night. The luge track is set up with colourful lights so you will never lose your way. However, it does make it that exciting. The luge is open until 730pm, Thursday to Monday.
Spend the evening at Singapore Night Safari
We have all been to the zoo, but how many night zoos have you been able to visit? I know that Singapore is my one and only, so it must get a mention. The best part about the night safari is the animals come to life at night, whether the nocturnal animals that you don’t see during the day or the lion who seems to only roar during the night. This place is something special.
Take in the view at Mr Stork.
There is a reason Mr Stork has been nominated numerous times as the best bar in Singapore. From the view to the service to the drink menu, it is all a five-star experience. Go early and watch the sunset (oh, and you can’t book, so getting in early gets you an excellent table). I highly recommend 665°F restaurant; this also has a fantastic view! Although this steakhouse has a reputation as a superb place to order a steak, the lobster, in my opinion, was even better.
Head down the river and see Singapore at night on the Laser Show Cruise
Most people will opt for a ride down the river during the day, but you can now jump on a bumboat and enjoy The Marina Bay Laser show. It is a must-see in Singapore at night. Check the weather before you go because tickets can not be reimbursed, so you will have to commit even if it rains.
Take a ride on a Singapore party bus.
Yes, you heard right, enjoy getting from one venue to the next in a party bus. The party bus might not be the most cost-effective way to get from one place to another, but it is fun! Choose your music, sing along (sometimes you may find a mask or wig to dress up in) and be entertained.
Try your luck at one of the Casinos.
Singapore has two significant Casinos, one at Marina Bay Sands and the other on Sentosa Island. Either way, remember to bring your passport and ensure that you are over 18 and dressed appropriately in smart casual attire. There is plenty to do and see at Casino, so that you won’t be disappointed.
Order a cocktail at Bar Stories
Haji Lane is fun during the day, but at night it becomes a hot spot with bars and music. So head over to the bar stories for a different kind of cocktail. Then, instead of ordering your cocktail, answer the required questions and allow them to choose a cocktail that fits their preferences.
Do a spot of night shopping on Orchard Rd.
Orchard Rd is open until late every night of the week, but around Christmas, you will find loads of decorative lights on display (so be prepared for big crowds). All Singapore shopping centres are open until late, not just Orchard Rd.
Enjoy your favourite rides after hours at Universal Studios.
Universal Studios is open until 7 pm each night except for Saturday, when you can stay until 9 pm and watch the fireworks. Better still, go around special times of the year, such as Halloween and explore the park at night with its unique (extra scary) rides and entertainment.
Dine at one of the great restaurants at Robertson Quay
Although Clarke Quay comes to life at night (and can also be quite touristy), down the river a little, you will find Robertson Quay, which is a little more low-key in comparison. What it lacks in loud music and busy streets, it makes up for a quiet, chill vibe and great restaurants.
Sip on a cocktail in Singapore at night with an amazing view
Where rooftop bars are concerned, The Lantern Bar is one of my favourites. It has a great view, a chilled atmosphere, and a fantastic photo opportunity. Everything I love about Singapore: there is a restaurant downstairs that is also worth a mention, as well as a hotel that is highly rated in Singapore (I can vouch for it, as I spent a fantastic weekend here).
Enjoy a Singapore chilli crab at Dempsey Hill.
Although you will find many places to eat Singapore chilli crab, and in fact, you will find a few Jumbo Seafood outlets, I highly recommend Dempsy Hill. This restaurant location is one of our favourites any time of the week (it is always busy, so make sure you book in advance). Oh, and if you love seafood as I do, the pepper crab and the cereal prawn are also top of my list on the menu. If you want something a little more special, then you should try their signature restaurant at Marina Bay Sands.
Sit with the locals and enjoy some hawker food.
Singapore has many hawker centres to choose from, but you must remember a few things. Always bring a packet of tissues (anything really, but this seems to be the article of choice here in Singapore). This marker is to place down on the table where you will sit. The hawker centres can be bustling, so finding a seat is a priority as soon as you arrive. Wander around, choose a vendor, order your food, and enjoy the experience.
Take a Walk along Henderson Waves Bridge
The Henderson Waves Bridge is 274 meters long and is designed with shell-like seating areas where you can take in the night sky view. The bridge is excellent during the day; however, it lights up at night with lights that make it even more special to see Singapore at night.
View The Jewel’s Rain Vortex Light show
The Jewel Rain Vortex Light Show starts at 730pm each night and takes place hourly until 11.30 pm. The Vortex is spectacular during the day, but the waterfall comes to life in beautiful colours at night. Shops are also open until late, so you could spend an entire evening dining, shopping, and viewing the waterfall.
Indulge yourself in one of Asia’s best restaurants
Burnt Ends has been named many times in Asia’s top 50 restaurants (usually in the top 10, to be precise), so why not splurge and see what the fuss is all about? Burnt Ends is a fantastic restaurant with an even more excellent reputation. You will understand the hype when you indulge yourself with the chef’s choice.
Step inside and order from the most extensive gin collection in the world
Yes, you heard me. The Altas bar has the world’s most extensive gin collection in the world. Step back in time and enjoy a drink at this art-deco great gatsby style bar. The wait is long if you haven’t booked in advance, but it is worth it.
Dance the night away at one of Singapore’s popular nightclubs
Marquee Nightclub is situated at the Marina Bay Sands, one of Singapore’s popular nightspots. Remember to dress appropriately, be patient (the line can be extensive) and bring your dancing shoes.

Singapore will always be a highlight of my past travels. What a great city with so much to see and do. And the food! The thought of Chilli Mud Crab makes me loose sleep with cravings.
Yes! Me too! Singapore is always a fun place to explore – any time of the year!
Great blog – I really like you can use the list at the top to skip to the experience – very helpful when you are trying to complete the list on a 3 days weekend in Singapore.
