Best Things to do in Singapore at night

things to do at night in Singapore

While New York may be the city that never sleeps, we think Singapore is a close second. For those who can’t sleep at night, our city is a terrific place to be. First off, it’s safe to go on late-night walks since we have among the lowest rates of crime in the whole globe. The fact that many malls remain open until 10 p.m. is something we may take for granted at times, but it’s still amazing—we can all think of at least one 24-hour restaurant or place to dine in our neighborhood. While most people in Singapore are sleeping, there are also many entertaining activities to do at night. Save this handy list for a fantastic evening stroll in our Lion City!

The best things to do at night in Singapore

1. Shop for your groceries

Our hosts, if you listened to the Honeycombers Podcast’s after-hours edition, like going grocery shopping after dusk. This implies that there won’t be long lines to check out all of your items and that you won’t have to mingle with a large crowd. Our preferred supermarket is the Giant Hypermarket located in Tampines. It is open around-the-clock and has about everything you could possibly need. You may also go to Sheng Siong on New Upper Changi Road or Fairprice Finest in Bukit Timah Plaza.

2. Experience the arcade like a child once again

At vintage arcades, get in the competitive mood and win big—we’re talking buckets of tickets. At Suntec City, Cow Play Cow Moo has games and claw machines with cutesy plush toys that resemble carnival attractions. It is open till one in the morning. You can definitely anticipate having a ton of fun right here.

3. Have fun on wheels!

Visit HiRoller, the biggest indoor skating rink in the city, and start having a good time. A variety of themes are available, such as disco, vintage, and K-pop, so dress to impress. Best of all, on weekends the rink is open until 10 p.m.!

4. View Singapore in a different light

Many beautiful bridges and park connections that sparkle at night are a gift to us. So why not plan a nighttime riding adventure with your friends to make the most of it? We plan to start the Eastern Coastal Loop, which connects Changi Beach Park, the East Coast, and Pasir Ris Town Park.

Desire more? Enjoy stunning nighttime views of Marina Bay , the Singapore Flyer, and the Supertrees at Gardens by the Bay as you ride the Eastern Coastal Loop extension from the East Coast. Not able to ride a bike or don’t have one? If you’re more of a nature person, take a leisurely stroll over the Helix Bridge for famous views of the riverbank or Henderson Waves at Southern Ridges.

5. Shop till you drop or nod off

Mustafa Centre, the well-known late-night retail megastructure in Little India, is a shopping haven for avid shoppers and bargain seekers alike, housing almost everything. Everything you could possibly want is available here, including food, gadgets, and odd brands you’ve probably never heard of. Use your credit card at your own discretion since it may become rather overwhelming.

Require a scene change? The Orchard Central location of Japanese retailer Don Don Donki is open around-the-clock, while on certain days, Decathlon Kallang is open till midnight.

Feel free to indulge yourself excessively!
