Singapore Night Attractions

Singapore is a city known for its Skyscrapers and urban sprawl. Tourists throng to the city all through the year to enjoy at some of the iconic spots such as Marina Bay and Botanical Gardens. Tourists often take the city’s efficient transport system to get around. However, you will be surprised to know that Singapore is also a beautiful place for long drives as well!

There are a number of scenic spots in Singapore which can be truly enjoyed with a long, quiet drive. Singapore’s reputation as the city of lights can be best experienced in the night. Many of Singapore’s famed tourist attractions completely transform during the night as the spectacular display of lights and an open sky create a comfortable, tranquil ambiance. You can enjoy the nightlife with Singapore tour packages that will take you through the length and breadth of this urban marvel. If you are looking at fun things to do in Singapore, check out these scenic places you can drive at night in Singapore.

Night Safari, Singapore

Night Safari, Singapore

Night Safari is one of the most popular nightspots in Singapore. It attracts over a million tourists every year. The park is known for its nocturnal animals and is takes tourists through a guided tram ride through the park.

In addition to the tram ride, you can also explore the nocturnal park on your own through the walking trails. You can come up and close with various nocturnal animals and acquaint yourself with 6 different geographical time zones.

 The zoo opens at 7:30 PM local time and if your hotel is in Singapore, it will be a 20 minute drive to the Night Safari at 80 Mandai Lake Road. If you are renting a car, make sure to arrive early as the place does get crowded owing to its reputation for being the largest nocturnal zoo of the world.

Little Arabia

Another place that comes to life in the night and becomes a hotspot for tourists is Little Arabia. The mesmerizing thing about spending an evening at Little Arabia is that it gives you a feeling that you are not in Singapore anymore. It is a mini city within a city with a Middle East feeling.

If you are travelling to Little Arabia, don’t miss out on trying the karisik kebab in Alaturka. Located at 16 Bussorah Street, Little Arabia can be reached by car in 15 minutes and you can stay there until midnight.

Gardens by the Bay

While Gardens by the day is an attractive tourist destination any time of the year, it becomes a popular hangout place for tourists looking to take in the splendid views of this iconic place in Singapore. The attractive thing about the Gardens in the night is the different hues of colors that the trees are decorated with. As soon as the lights are turned on, Gardens by the Bay transforms into a mesmerizing place full of color and beauty. From light green, baby pink and blue, the trees in the garden become truly amazing.

Southern Ridges

Being in Singapore and not visiting the Southern Ridges is something that you will regret for a long time! A perfect combination of art and marvelous engineering, the Southern Ridges offer visitors foot trails as long as 9 km. While the place is also open during the day, it is during the night that it truly comes alive as the lighting and open sky create an eclectic feeling that can only be experienced. The 9 km long foot trail will take you through some of the iconic parks such as Mount Faber and Kent Ridge. You will find a lot of options for late-night snacks and may be you will have a few monkeys as companions.

The Merlion, Marina Bay


The Merlion, Marina Bay at Night

There is little doubt that the Merlion is the most recognizable icon of Singapore. In Singapore parlance, ‘to Merlion’ means throwing up after drinking too much! The icon is steeped in Singapore culture and is a hallmark of the creativity and skill of Lim Nang Sen, the famous sculptor. Visiting the Merlion during the day is quite an experience in itself, but the place does become more beautiful under the night sky. If you are looking for some great selfies that you will remember for a long time, consider having the Merlion in the background.

These are among the most beautiful and scenic night destinations in Singapore. Traveling to Singapore during the Christmas and New Year can be an experience in itself as the city has the reputation for adorning itself in festive lights and events that last well until the first weekend of the New Year. Planning a family trip to Singapore can be the perfect getaway to bid goodbye to 2016 and welcome 2017 with optimism and merriment!

    I haven’t been to Singapore yet, but from what I’ve seen it has a lot to offer visitors. The Little Arabia area looks so interesting. Does Singapore have a lot of Middle Eastern expats? The Gardens by the Bay also looks like a great place to take photos.

    Singapore Is very high on my to go to list. Bring from Toronto it tend to be drawn to big skyscrapers and urban sprawls. Some of the other places mentioned look very cool and interesting. Like the Night Safari, Little Arabia, Southern Ridges and The Merlion, Marina Bay. For some reason the animals don’t look real in the night safari…lol

    Even though the animals doesn’t seem to be real in the picture, you may witness original animals in the park. Last time, when we visited the night safari, it was unbelievable experience with Giraffe & Bears. I hope you will visit Singapore as soon as possible. Happy journey & happy Christmas dear 🙂
