Singapore After Dark

BODY IMAGE: Hotel Jen Tanglin Singapore : Singapore After Dark

There’s plenty to do in Singapore after hours, and, yes, I am referring to after dusk and before dawn. The city takes on a different tempo as the daytime buzz becomes more peaceful.

Here are five amazing hidden gems that I highly recommend:


  • Henderson Wave Bridge 
  • Standing at 36 metres high, this is Singapore’s lofty pedestrian bridge. Connecting Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park, the bridge comes aglow from 7pm-2am nightly, making it a great place for an after-dinner stroll!

  • Mustafa Centre 
  • This massive Singapore institution offers round-the-clock shopping for everything under the sun – from skincare and electronics to sportswear and pre-loved designer bags, as well as spices, exotic pickles and snacks from around the world.

  • Singapore Botanic Gardens 
  • Established in 1859, the historic Singapore Botanic Gardens is home to an impressive collection of tropical flora – over 10,000 types! – including heritage trees and primary rainforest plants. It is a lovely place to visit any time of the day for a stroll, walk or even a run.

  • East Coast Park Prawning 
  • Prawn fishing is a popular pastime among Singaporeans. Enjoy the thrill of catching lobsters, flower crabs and tiger prawns in a saltwater pond with family and friends. The activity is available 24 hours a day.

  • Cosmic Bowling 
  • Ever tried bowling in the dark? Go glow-in-the-dark bowling! Cosmic Blowing marries bowling and discotheque lights with thumping dance music that is sure to get you grooving.
