Top 5 Things to do When Singapore Gets Dark – Live it Up after Sundown

Touched down in Singapore and wondering what fun you can have after the sun sets? Here are five awesome things you can experience after dark in this vibrant island nation.


Head out on a Night Safari

Singapore is renowned for having created the world's first-night safari venue. Gather up a group of animal-loving travel companions and book yourselves in for a tour of the Night Safari park. Ride on trams as they wind their way across the nocturnal park and keep an eye out for creatures of the dark. Animals you are likely to spot here include fishing cats, pangolins, otters, leopards and more! The park's doors stay open until the clock strikes 12 o'clock.


Catch Yourself Some Shrimp

Bet you've never been out prawning at night before! Singapore offers you the unique opportunity to do just this. Make a trip to the Hai Bin Prawning centre located on the bank of Punggol Lake. From accommodation options such as Destination Singapore Beach Road, which is a well placed Beach Road hotel in Singapore, the centre is within easy reach.

Pay a fee of SDG 20 per person to borrow a rod, and get started on your hunt for delicious freshwater shrimp. Hai Bin Prawning prides itself on being open at all hours of the day, every day. This includes public holidays as well. So if you happen to be in the country during the holidays and you find other attractions closed, prawning is an activity you can still engage in! If you want to try shrimp fishing in a different locale, check out their other branch which is situated in Sembawang, near the Singapore-Malaysia border.


Do a Bit of Last Minute Shopping

Scour the aisles of the Mustafa shopping complex to secure some thrifty deals. This shopping complex is open 24 hours a day and is known to sell all and sundry at bargain prices. Things you can find here include household items, electronics, apparel, watches and more. You can also conveniently convert your native currency into Singapore Dollars at Mustafa.


Tour Chinatown by Trishaw

Sign up for a trishaw tour after sunset. Just sit back and relax as the trishaw driver peddles you along the streets. Take in the many sights, smells and sounds of Chinatown as hawkers try and sell you their wares. Stop by for some tasty dim sum and pick up a few souvenirs to take back home. Three for two deals at Chinatown are a great way to get your hands on some truly interesting trinkets for friends, family and colleagues, without breaking the bank.


Behold the Glittering Skyline

Singapore's one of the busiest cities in the world, and this really shows at night time. Spend a few moments gazing out at its dazzling skyline after sundown. The city comes alive with countless numbers of soaring skyscrapers, each illuminated by clusters of twinkling lights. One the best places to enjoy the view from is Marina Bay. Alternatively, just head to one of Singapore's many rooftop bars and enjoy an uninterrupted view of the city from there.
