Singapore is often viewed as a conservative country, night life
is getting bigger thanks to the governments push to attract more
tourists. Once a glass of draught beer could set you back $10
thanks to the governments sin tax, today this tax has been
relaxed and while it still is expensive to drink in bars when
compared to some other countries, the prices for alcohol in the
supermarkets aren't too bad.
Nitelife in Singapore centers around the Singapore River with
the most popular bars and clubs around the Boat Quay and Clarke
Quay areas. This area is also home to plenty of cafes and
restaurants, so perhaps a bite of the famous Singaporean cuisine
before hitting the bars would be a good idea. Finding a
restaurant that allows you to BYO a bottle of wine may be also a
good economical way to start the night.
Other places to visit at night include Mohamed Sultan Rd,
Circular Road, Robertson Quay and the new marina district that
is set to become Singapore's new entertainment precinct as it
grows over the next 5 or so years.
Singapore has one of the lowest crime rates in the world thanks
to a strong and strict police force, so its a very safe place to
travel around at any time of the day. That being said as in any
city in the world do take care and try to not get arrested for
drunken disorderly on your big night out in Singapore.
