Ideas for Evenings in Singapore

Hello all

I am travelling to Singapore shortly with work and will be there from Monday evening through to Friday night (I leave around 11pm.

I am working while in Singapore but will have the evneings free to myself. I would be extremely grateful for some suggestions on tourist attractions I can visit in the evening.

I thought that the night safari would be good one evening and that the Singapore flyer would be an option for another evening.

On the Friday I have a few hours in the early afternoon and evening before I need to make my way to the airport so suggestions for things to do on Friday afternoon would be most welcome too.

Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Lau Pa Sat looks awesome. Will definitely check that out one evening I am there.

Had also looked at Marina Bay Sands and thought about going to Kudeta.

Thanks again.

I am in Singapore from the evening of Monday 26th May to late night Friday 31st May. If there are any specific events on around then please let me know.

In terms of interests I like doing the usualy touristy type things and open to any auggestions. Really like the sound of the hawker centres although I have no idea which ones to visit. Lau Pa Sat a hawker centre? Any recomendations of hawker centres?

I looked at the Singapore flyer. Probably won't do dinner on it but will pay it a visit.

Hi Andrew1979,

You'll miss Vesak Day (a Buddhist celebration) which is on Friday the 24th. Btw, Monday is the 27th not 26th.

You may want to add the following to Mankster's list

ArtScience Museum for Mummy -Secrets of the Tomb Exhibition

Garden Rhapsody at the Gardens By The Bay

Not sure where you are staying but you can have dinner at Lau Pa Sat or Gluttons Bay. On the Friday, you may want to go to the Maxwell Road FoodCentre and try local favourite, Chicken Rice. Try to be there early for lunch before the office crowd hit the Foodcentre.

Another suggestion - go to the rooftop bar 1-Altitude at Raffles Place Tower. It is the world's highest open to sky bar - amazing views of Singapore all around it's 360degree bar !
