2. Soar into the skies with the Singapore Flyer
If you need new things to do in Singapore at night or want to be a tourist for the day, why not hop aboard the Singapore Flyer! Enjoy the beautiful city skyline at night and mesmerising lights as you soak in Singapore’s view from above. This is also the perfect beginning to a night out in Singapore, as the flyer opens until 10.30pm daily. You’ll be able to explore everything else on this list after!

3. Chill in a Rooftop Bar
If you’re more of a drinks and music kind of person, visit a rooftop bar at night! Rooftop bars allow you to enjoy the city skyline while enjoying fine wine or exotic cocktails! It’ll cost less than a trip on the Singapore Flyer too (depending on your beverage of choice), but with the same view. Grooving to a live band while chilling with your friends, what could be better?
4. Work those calories at a 24 hour gym
Want something to do in Singapore at night to burn the calories from eating throughout the day? Perhaps you could opt for a midnight gym session at a 24 hour gym rather than going for supper! Since less people exercise during the wee hours of the night, you’re also less likely to be self conscious while exercising. No more having to wait your turn for the equipment!
As exercising is physically tiring, it’ll also help you sleep better through the night. Burning calories and being able to have a good night’s sleep, that’s the best of both worlds!
5. Have a night wildlife encounter at the Night Safari
Adding on to the things to do in Singapore at night, visit the world’s first nocturnal wildlife park, the Night Safari! You’ll be able to catch night creatures in their habitats, and they’ll actually be active since they’re nocturnal. There are various shows and attractions you can visit, and even a tram you can board if you aren’t a fan of walking.
Try to catch the animals during their feeding times for a once in a lifetime experience! How often do you get to see lions and Malayan Tigers being fed their meal? They also have special events on various occasions, such as Halloween, which is a must-go for spook lovers!

6. One of the annual things to do in Singapore at night – Halloween Horror Night (HHN)

8. Party the night away at the clubs!
Singapore’s clubs are known to be more tame than those overseas, so it’s worth a try if you want to drink and dance the night away! Ladies can also look forward to Ladies’ Night every Wednesday, where there’ll be free drinks and club entry!
For affordable alcohol, Get Juiced has $5 nett drinks and WAN even serves alcoholic bubble tea if you’re looking to try something new. You can also head to Altimate, where you can enjoy a brilliant view while partying! D’underground has free-flow alcohol, while Bang Bang Club opens till late. It can be the last place you visit before you end the night (or morning) too!
9. Watch the beautiful Spectra
Happen to be around the Marina Bay area? Why not hang around in time to catch Spectra? It’s a light and water show display over water at the Event Plaza along the Promenade. From music, lights to fountain jets, be prepared to be enthralled by the performance!
Before or after the performance, you can also stroll along the Helix Bridge and enjoy the night breeze and views of our bustling city. There are also benches where you can relax and chill with your friends while chatting the night away.

10. Have a picnic while being serenaded by the Garden Rhapsody
Want free things to do in Singapore at night? Be serenaded by the Supertrees as they’re lit up all around in accordance to the rhythm of the music! It truly is a sight to behold, especially when familiar tunes are played. The Garden Rhapsody theme differs from time to time, so not every performance is the same!
All you’ll need is a picnic mat, some finger food, a couple of friends and you’ll be ready for a chill night out under the magical, musical trees.
Location: Supertree Grove
Showtimes: Daily, 7.45pm & 8.45pm
11. Visit the glow-in-the-dark road
Want to try something new? Drop by the glow in the dark road near Bukit Panjang station! It’s one of the things to do in Singapore at night that can only be done… at night. Part of the government’s project to overhaul the railway track, the luminous track is being tested for possible use in the future. Although the lights are reported to be dim, it’s still worth the experience!
12. Bowl in style with cosmic bowling
Cosmic bowling is bowling, but with a twist! Rather than the usual brightly lit lanes, the entire bowling alley glows in neon colours! Apart from the cool factor of being able to toss a blazing neon ball down the lane (or into the gutter), it’s also a fun way to destress!
If you’re sick of regular bowling, this is one of the things to do in Singapore at night that is a definite must-try.
13. Go star gazing at the Singapore Science Centre
You might not be able to rewrite the stars but won’t it be great to simply admire them closer than before? The Singapore Science Centre offers free stargazing sessions every Friday night! Although it’s pretty rare to see a sky full of stars in Singapore, at least there’ll be less physical distance as you stargaze from the Observatory Tower.
Science Centre Observatory
Address: 21 Jurong Town Hall Rd, Singapore 609433 Jurong Town Hall Rd, S(609433)
Opening Hours: Friday: 7.45pm – 10pm
14. Catch some prawns with your buddies!
Ever tried prawning? Why not consider prawning as one of the things to do in Singapore at night? This is the best idea if you’re sick of sweating buckets under the hot afternoon sun. There are even 24 hour prawning spots, like Riviera Prawn Fishing where you can enjoy a quiet night chilling while catching prawns! They even have food and drinks available if you get hungry.
Riviera Prawn Fishing
Address: #01-11, Golf Club, S(828825), 60 Punggol E

15. Cycle deep into the night
Night cycling is one of the relatively more dangerous ‘things to do in Singapore at night’ activities, but it’s fun nonetheless! Besides avoiding the hot sun, you’ll be able to enjoy the night breeze and sights! We’d advice joining groups if you’re an inexperienced night cyclist, or going with a group of experienced friends. Always ensure that all safety precautions have been taken, especially if you’ll be cycling near other vehicles.
16. Fly an LED kite up high in the sky
LED kites have been increasingly popular recently and what better time to fly them than at night, where you can see the lights in their full glory! It might be harder to get a kite to lift off in the day too, due to the lack of wind. However, this shouldn’t be a problem with the night breeze! It’ll make a fun family activity, especially if you’re running out of new things to do in Singapore at night.
17. Embrace your fears with the GX-5 Extreme Swing
Thrill seekers will enjoy being catapulted at top speed into the night sky in the GX-5 Extreme Swing. It’s as extreme as it sounds and the thrill will definitely be amplified with the cold(er) wind. Be prepared to have your heart pumping with adrenaline and maybe you’ll even be able to enjoy the skyline! (If you’re brave enough to keep your eyes open during the ride that is). This is also probably one of the more extreme rides in Singapore. It’s also one of the must-do things to do in Singapore at night if you’re a thrill seeker, especially since you won’t have to be tossed up in the sweltering heat.
GX-5 Extreme Swing
Address: 3 River Valley Rd, S(179024)
Opening Hours: Daily, 2pm till late
18. Sing the night away at a karaoke
Karaoke places are also popular hang out spots at night. You’ll be able to sing to your heart’s content without feeling judged and party without having to go to a club. Teo Heng KTV is known for its affordable pricing, while Voicebooth will provide an authentic Korean Karaoke experience! You’ll be able to get hyped up, complete with a disco ball dangling from the ceiling that lights up and spins!
19. Take a trip down memory lane at the arcade
It’s probably been a long time since you last went to the arcade, although it might’ve been your childhood go-to place. Remember bugging your parents to bring you there to play? Now you’ll be able to go there yourself and play all you want!
Cow Play Cow Moo is one of the biggest arcades in Singapore and it’ll be a fun place to hang out at night! If you enjoy UFO catchers, it’ll also be your dream place and there are tons of prizes to be won, as long as you’re willing to give it a shot!
