Hi im a 26y/o guy who is heading to Singapore in November and would like some advice.
Sure ive heard the night zoo and the MRT is great for getting around...but.... what are the good clubs in singapore and where would you recommend i go if i wanna see some of the city landscape ;D
any good restaurants?
and final question - what are the spots i should not miss out on! =)
thanks very much
Hey andreas, what kind of music are you into? I personally like The Butter Factory at One Fullerton but if you're a club hopper then you should head to Clarke Quay where places like Zirca and Attica are good as well.
A great way to have a drink and enjoy the city landscape is to head up to New Asia Bar in Swissotel that's on the 71st floor. There is a cover charge of SGD$25nett that includes one housepoor after 9pm on fri, sat and eve of public holidays. Other than that it's free. Marina Bay Sands has SkyPark too but it has a SGD$20 fee. Might be worth paying because there's a pool with a glass wall over the edge and i suppose it can be rather exciting to look out from there while in the water.
With regards to the spots you shouldnt miss out on. it depends on how many days you have and what youre into. I always like spending a whole day at the zoo and chinatown for culture and shopping.
one tip for the zoo and night safari, bring your own food and drinks in because as with all tourist attractions, prices are inflated. there are plenty of places to sit down and have a meal. in fact it's even better because you can sit and watch the animals at the same time instead of sitting at a cafe watching... other people.
Great tips this will be handy for me also!
glad to be of service! 😊. here's some extra information.. im local and i wouldnt actually go to the night safari because the three times i went, the animals werent doing anything! the highlights of the park would be the show at the beginning of the night, and having some
animals walk just next to your tram as you whiz by (some tram routes arent open to those walking so its better to pay for the tram). Other than these sporadic 2 minute excitements, there isnt much to see.
perhaps i was unlucky and the animals were feelings restless on those nights?? regardless, will never pay to go in again. last time i went, a friend working there let me in for free :p.
However, I would recommend that travellers go at least once and make an opinion then. after all it's never on the verge of closing down so there must be something about it. oh! every year near halloween they have a sort of "haunted house" thing going on and staff dress up in ghostly costumes and the whole place is transformed. ive yet to attend one of them though..
