With an abundant night life and a large number of pubs, bars, discos and restaurants for each taste often within walking distance from your Singapore home the choice is yours.
From the classical cultural Asian experience such as attending a Chinese opera to rocking with Western pop groups or singing along in a musical – entertainment in Singapore is the best in the region and frequented by many visitors from neighboring countries. Tickets should be booked early to avoid disappointment on missing out on entertainment in Singapore.
Singapore’s club scene is hot and we tell you where to go to meet fellow expats and Singapore’s sarong ladies and boys – the perfect companions for lonely strangers in the night.
Stay away from Western temptations such as drugs as the laws are stringent and apply to a foreigner in the same way as to the locals. Only recently a number of expatriates were sent to jail in Singapore for drugs in their possession. You will be hanged if you are suspected to be dealing and the amount of drugs on you surpasses a certain limit. Please take this advice serious.
There is a vivid nightlife scene in Singapore and the Government has slowly adapted Singapore laws to fit the image of the city as an entertainment hub for tourist from the region and to encourage creativity amongst its population. If you feel you need to you are permitted to dance on the bar-top dancing – and this is indeed a major social change in Singapore.
Nightspots close around midnight during the week and at 2-3 am on weekends. A few areas in non-residential areas have been pinpointed for permits to stay open around the clock.
