Exploring Singapore At Night

Singapore is one of these places that quickens your pulse, keeps you busy and makes you speechless for a long time… Especially when you explore it at night with a camera in your hands.

The Marina Bay Sands all lit up at night. Do you think it looks like a spaceship?

Marina bay at night

Singapore is a beautiful place to explore and – despite being totally knackered – we managed to drag ourselves down to the Marina to shoot some shots of this magnificent city lit up at night and reflected across the water. We did not regret that at all. What’s more, what we have seen, woke us up immediately.

The cityscape of Singapore is beautiful at night, so if you find yourself in this part of the world head for the Marina Bay Sands Hotel (you really can’t miss it, it’s an icon of Singapore!) and chill out by the waters edge with the jazz band playing in the background, the humid air keeping you warm and take some time out to appreciate it’s skyline.

If you have never been to Singapore, make sure you’ll add it to your travel bucket list. It’s absolutely worth it!

How do you like the scenery?

Can you think of any places you have recently travelled to that left you speechless by its night scenery?

    I love the nightlife in Singapore (minus the 200 dollar bottles while out!) but other the spending loads of money, everything else was great! The lights are amazing.

    Did you go to the Garden By the Bay? Sometime they have a night light show there. But you need to check it first whether they have the show or not :-)

      We did, but we missed the show. Bad luck! Maybe next time!

    Great post and photos Agness. I too was left speechless by Singapore. On our first visit we decided to splurge a little. We had been travelling very cheaply through Cambodia and had some cash left over so we treated ourselves to a stay at the Swissotel the Stamford that overlooks the bay and Marina Bay Sands. We had a balcony room on NYE with a perfect view of the fireworks. It was honestly one of the best nights of my travelling life.

      Yes Charlie, it reminded us of Hong Kong scenery a lot. The horse photo was taken in Chinatown nearby Maxwell Hawker Center.

    Is the nightlife still crazy in Singapore? I haven’t been since I was 19 but I remember the Singaporeans known how to party, and because I’m not a big party animal this surprised me! An evening stroll around the bay and looking at all the city lights appeals to me more :D I trust you had lots of delicious food whilst you were in Singapore!

    Reply
    • Agness Walewinder March 25, 2014, 12:51 am

      To be honest, we don’t party much. We went there to sight-see. Based on what we have seen, people don’t really party hard in clubs. Nightlife in Singapore is more about dining our with friends and strolling down the streets while chatting, but I might be wrong…

    Also next time, I would like to try that wave pool on Sentosa — I think they have surfing there.

    Singapore is indeed an amazing city whether in day or night. Your photos are fantastic and really show how eye catching the place can be.

    When I first visited Singapore the Marina Sands was just an aspiration and not built. It is fascinating now each time I go back to see how this reclaimed area has been developed into such a modern marvel.

      When was your first time to visit the Marina Sands then?

        I first explored the city of Singapore in March 2006, before Marina Sands was built. I think my first experience of Marina Sands was around 2010 or 2011. Not sure exactly.

    Welcome to Lion City, my home city! Singapore is not a cheap price but you can certainly travel here on a budget with good planning. It has evolved quite a lot for the past 10 years.You can read my blog on My Singapore Story here: http://tantaikwee.blogspot.sg/2013/08/my-singapore-story.html .Have to correct you a bit on the nightlife. Singaporeans do party late into night. Just go to Clark Quay and Boat Quay to experience it :-)

    I used to think Singapore was only a place for shopping in the big malls and that it was boring. But in my next visits I found that it actually has a lot more to offer! I love how they take the city planning and design seriously, they have a lot of good museums, they even have several city forests and parks in their very little land, and they often hold interesting events .
    It’s a small country that thinks and acts big!

    • Agness Walewinder April 14, 2014, 2:11 am

      It’s not only for shopping and parties. That’s a big misconception. We didn’t go out even once neither went shopping, but we still had a lot of fun! The city has a lot to offer for budget travellers, trust me!

    Indeed, it left me speechless on my first walk out.
    I left the hotel late in the afternoon and I found myself “lost” admiring and eating around… It was awesome in the skyscraper area in the Downtown Core… then I ended up in Chinatown, the Outram Park area…
    Been twice.
    I would certainly visit Singapore again and again, it was so thrilling!
