What To Do In Singapore At Night That ISN’T Going Clubbing

Can't sleep? Here are some night activities to entertain your evening.

Now that nightlife is on the low, you might be wondering where to go and what to do in Singapore at night?

Just because the clubs are out, doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to do when the sun sets. There are plenty things to do in Singapore at night, whether that be chill hangout places or a peaceful night walk.

Here are the 16 of the best night activities to do in Singapore on to make the evening last.

1. Watch the spectacular lights show at Marina Bay

You probably already know about this free nightly light and water show at Marina Bay Sands. As the 15-minute outdoor show unfolds before your eyes in a four-part story, immerse yourself in the beautiful symphony of dancing fountain jets, colourful visual projections, advanced lasers, and lava and mist effects — all led by an orchestral soundtrack.

The light show starts at 8 p.m., and the water show at 9 p.m. There are additional shows at 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.

*Please not that the nightly light and water show has been suspended from 8 February until further notice.

2. Go fly a kite

This is a great outdoor activity to take advantage of the fresh evening air. Get a LED night kite from Kite Culture (from $15) and head to Marina Barrage where the night breeze makes it perfect for this activity. Also, no more squinting your eyes at your kite with the sun glaring at you!

4. Feast!

Hungry? Tons of hawker stalls and restaurants are open way into the wee hours of the night. Don’t fear judgment – it’s quite a common Singaporean pastime to head out scavenging for food when the moon’s high in the sky. Not sure where to start? Peruse our guide to local breakfast foods you can get at any hawker centre.

5. Midnight Shopping

Need to do some last-minute, late-night shopping? Mustafa Centre’s just the place. Pre-pandemic, this one-stop shopping mall used to operate 24/7 – along with nearby eateries that open till late, too. However, due to Covid-19 and the lack of tourists, it has shortened its opening hours recently. Offering six floors of bargains that also houses a travel agency, rooftop restaurant and supermarket – the place is a nest egg of discount shopping. You’re sure to be entertained shopping all night long!

Mustafa Centre

6. Late nights at the arcade

Reach into your inner child and play old-school arcade till the late hours of the night. You can win buckets, and literally buckets, of tickets to score an awesome prize. Perhaps a prize for a date? No matter the occasion, expect tons of fun through out the night.

10. Play football indoors

Love football (soccer, yes) but hate the humid, stifling heat that comes with all things outdoors in Singapore? Here’s a solution: Play football indoors, at midnight. Singapore’s first indoor football stadium, The Cage is open 24/7 for football fans. With 6 identical five-a-side pitches as well as ventilation fans, comfort areas and a music system for you to play the songs you like, you can spend all night here scoring goals.

There’s nothing new about drinking or shopping, but what about the two combined? You can do so at the popular Don Don Donki. A one-stop hyper-mart that is open till late at night and has everything you possibly need – from Japanese snacks to clothes to phone cases and more. Check this out: The outlet at Orchard Central is open 24/7, while other stores operate till 11 p.m. to 12 a.m. Located right inside Don Don Donki is Drink Drunk Donki, the bar section of the store serving authentic Japanese beers and sakes.

12. Work out, anytime

If you can’t sleep, the best way to work up a sweat and tire yourself out is with a trip to the gym. Overcrowded gyms where you have to wait to use equipment not your thing?

13. Night walks around Singapore

This city literally glows at night, and you can walk across the many bridges that light up during the evening. For a stroll through nature, check out Henderson Bridge which boasts sweeping views of canopy trees and glimmering buildings in the distance. Or explore around the Eastern Coastal Loop, which goes from Pasir Ris Town Park to East Coast and finally Changi Beach Park. The extension of the Eastern Coastal Loop goes through the beautiful city centre, from Gardens by the Bay, to Marina By Sands and the iconic Singapore Flyer.

14. Pamper yourself

When was the last time you hit the spa and had a really relaxing, pampering session? Take a break from the bustle of the city and recharge at these late-night spas. Purchase a spa pass at Spa Nes ($58 for a full day) and walk into a relaxation paradise. Or head over to g.spa, a nature spa oasis at Guillemard Road that is open 24 hours, with invigorating spa treatments and saunas that ensure you fully relax.

15. Catch a midnight movie

If overexcited chortles, annoying phone notifications and loud whispering annoy you often at the cinema, why not catch a midnight flick instead? With limited seating due to Covid-19 restrictions, the cinema will be less crowded than usual, meaning a more quiet and secluded place. Just be sure to not choose a horror movie if you get creeped out easily.

16. Watch planes go by

Although travel is thin, doesn’t mean you can’t still watch some planes fly by. And what better to do it in at the top airport in the world, our very own Changi Airport. Explore the fancy Jewel Changi Airport, or grab a latte at the 24-hour Starbucks.
