The fun doesn't stop when the day ends – it only gets better. And we’re not just talking about hitting the nightclubs in the city. Set out for the great outdoors as the sun sets with our list of things to do that’s perfect for all you creatures of the night.

Hai Bin Prawning

Family fun

Kick back at 24-hour fishing hole Hai Bin Prawning and pile fresh prawns into your bucket before grilling them on the barbecue. For $36, you get three hours of prawning fun so catch as many as you can.

Daytime kite-flying is so yesterday. LED kites are all the rage now and you can easily buy them from shops like Kite Culture and Go Fly Kite. Pop by Marina Barrage on the weekend and join other kite enthusiasts in lighting up the city’s skyline with your creations.

Skypark Arena

Sweat it out

Only at Skypark Arena can you enjoy a game of midnight futsal while soaking in a panoramic view of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. Open daily from 8am ‘til 2am, the rooftop playground also features a Halal bistro where you can chill at after working up a sweat, you can also challenge your buds to a round of foosball, pool and electronic darts. Make sure to book (from $30/hr) the pitch in advance to avoid disappointment.

Go for a spin

Hop on your two-wheeler and cycle after dark through the various park connectors that snake through the island. Take on the Kallang and Marina Bay route for scenic views of the city or pedal through Changi Beach Park to get to East Coast Park and enjoy a breezy and leafy adventure. Don’t like cycling solo? Don’t worry, there are plenty of cycling community groups such as Meet Cycle Siow and Joyriders that you can reach out to on social media. Go for a ride and make new friends.

Super blood blue moon

Rewrite the stars

Who says you can’t stargaze in light polluted Singapore? Dust off your telescope and spread out along West Coast Park, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park or Punggol Waterway Park to set up camp. On clear nights, you might even get a glimpse of Jupiter or Venus.
