1. Evening Walk Through the Supertree Grove at Gardens By The Bay

An evening stroll through the Supertree Grove that houses 18 iconic Supertrees is just the right thing to unwind after a long day in Singapore’s tropical humidity. You get a combination of art and nature in the form of giant trees that are beautifully illuminated upon nightfall, making it perfect for romantic evening walks or fun family nights out.

The Gardens By The Bay also hosts a nightly light and sound show with captivating music between 7:45pm and 8:45pm called the Garden Rhapsody Show that is free for all to enjoy. And if you’d like to take your experience to the next level, you can always opt to purchase tickets and enjoy an elevated stroll on the OCBC Skyway or admire the view from the Supertree Observatory!

Bonus Tip: If you’re looking to capture stunning photographs, be sure to arrive here just after sunset for the most spectacular views of the illuminated Supertrees followed by stunning shots of the Light and Sound Show.

Ever wanted to explore the habitats of wild animals after dark for a thrilling adventure? You can do so with the Singapore Zoo’s Night Safari! Start your night adventure with a guided tram ride that takes you through the naturalistic habitats of nocturnal animals, then enjoy a relaxing stroll through the walking trails to get up and close to the animals.

The Night Safari is a fun and educational experience for children and an exciting one for wildlife enthusiasts since the opportunity to see animals active at night is certainly a rare one! I’d recommend booking your tickets up to a week in advance to secure your slot for the nocturnal zoo as it gets busy during peak holiday periods. (Psst…you’ll also want to bring insect repellent just in case!)

Not only do you get to enjoy panoramic views of the city skyline’s stunning neon lights after dark, you can also opt for a romantic fine dining or drink experience in one of the Flyer’s capsules for a truly memorable date!

I’d recommend visiting at dusk along with your camera or fully charged phone plus a power bank because you’re definitely going to want to capture the magnificent scenery.

The Jewel Rain Vortex is one indoor waterfall that simply never gets old. It stands tall as the world’s tallest indoor waterfall and even though most would recommend visiting it during the day to enjoy a rainforest-like ambiance, the best views are at night when the waterfall show starts.

You can explore its lush indoor garden through its walking trails as you take in the breathtaking sights of the waterfall show. It can get a little maze-like during nightfall, which adds an element of excitement for couples seeking a fun yet romantic date, and individuals who appreciate greenery and innovative architecture.

12. Eat & Shop Your Way Through a Night Market

Singapore may be popular for its malls because of the country’s natural humidity, but the local night markets are exciting places to visit for a fun dose of food and retail therapy. 

Some of the best night markets to visit include the Chinatown Street Market, Bugis Street Market, and the Little India Arcade if you’re after something different from the usual Chinese Singaporean scene. Not forgetting the ever popular Geylang Bazaar during the Ramadan period as well.

Think browsing through trendy clothing, cute accessories imported from overseas, delicious eats inspired by the night markets of Southeast Asia, souvenirs, and even live performances. It’s a real treasure trove of things waiting to be discovered!

Bonus Tip: Arrive early in the evening to get first dibs on the freshest food while avoiding the late-night crowds if you’re not too fond of packed spaces!

Have you ever wondered how it’d feel like to comfortably experience a quiet time outdoors at night when the atmosphere is cooler and…peaceful? Well you can do so, and from a great height too on the Henderson Waves at the Southern Ridges.

This stunning architectural marvel is the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, and not to mention the perfect spot to escape the hustle and bustle of the city (which is still lively after hours). Just after the sun sets, the Henderson Waves is beautifully illuminated by LED lighting, giving it a truly romantic ambiance. Coupled with the hidden recesses that serve as benches, the Henderson Waves is definitely one of the best places to be as night falls in Singapore.

16. Unwind with a Nighttime Seaside Stroll @ Changi Point Coastal Walk

The Changi Point Coastal Walk is one of Singapore’s most peaceful seaside sanctuaries for leisurely strolls amidst the sound of crashing waves at any time. While most think that East Coast Park and the beaches of Sentosa Island are the only ones that permit seaside strolls at night, the Changi Point Coastal Walk is a hidden gem with well-lit pathways that make it a safe yet tranquil walking zone.

But having said that, you’ll still want to pack a flashlight for little pockets in the zone where the lights aren’t as bright as you’d want it to be.

They have a wide array of electronics, apparels, groceries, snacks, imported chocolates, make-up, fruits, certain branded goods, and even gold! What’s more, the prices are often found at a bargain compared to your usual NTUC supermarkets, making it the ideal haunt for night owls who love shopping and discovering great deals.

You don’t have to stick to conventional day-time activities at the Marina Barrage!

Think night picnics, flying a kite with heaps of little LED lights on it for a stunning display, and night-time photography of the city's skyline.

The best time to visit this spot is to head over just before sunset and enjoy a slow, leisurely period there as the sun sets and the city's lights take over. Just take the lift for a quick trip to the elevated Marina Barrage rooftop park, or if you’re looking to get some steps in, you can always opt to get there by walking on the long ramp.
