No matter whether it’s spent with a special someone, a best mate, or even alone, a dazzling sunset never fails to put a smile on our face. If you’re after a spectacular sundowner in Singapore, the city has plenty of brilliant spots to catch the magical moments in all their splendour. Have a gaze at these for some uh-mazing views …
Marina Bay Sands Sky Park
It mightn’t be free, but this spot is absolutely breathtaking. Perched 57 floors above the city, it’s as good as it gets in Singapore for clicking a beautiful panorama. The majestic views make it unavoidable no matter the cost and it’s even better at sunset.
Stellar at 1-Altitude
This popular location occupies 16,000 square feet across three levels, and its 360-degree views of Singapore and beyond are some of the best on the island. Stellar also happens to be the highest alfresco bar in the world. It’s open from 5pm to 10pm, serving a wide selection of drinks at reasonable prices considering the venue. Take your colleagues or friends for a chat and a laugh while taking in the spectacular vista.
This spot may not have the height of some of the others, but it’s definitely worthy of a place on our list. If you’ve got dinner plans at Marina Bay, pop over to the bridge around sunset for some amazing views across the water to the city as it lights up for the evening.
Marina at Keppel Bay
This scenic locale has plenty of great restaurants for a relaxing dinner. But it’s worth a visit even if you don’t plan to eat, as the waterfront offers a perfect place for gazing over the yacht-filled waters to the orange hues of sunset.
Lower Peirce Reservoir
A gorgeous park with a lovely rainforest backdrop, Lower Peirce Reservoir has a small pavilion out on the water – ideal for watching the sun go down while being immersed in the tranquillity of nature.
Junction of Kampong Bahru Road and Telok Blangah Road
To see a lovely balance of forest canopy and urban skyscrapers, make the hike up Mount Faber. The iconic hill lets you escape the city crowds and get a panoramic view of Singapore and its southern islands through special telescopes.
Punggol Waterway Park
Sentul Crescent Road
With its mix of jungle foliage meeting calm waters, Punggol Waterway Park is a great place to go for a scenic run or a bike ride at dusk. Make sure you end up at the Jewel Bridge to watch the sun go down.
If you go across to Marina Bay Golf Course and then walk down the path that leads to Marina Barrage, you’ll be treated to some stunning views. The sun reflects off the glistening water here, reflecting the whole of the Singapore skyline at the same time – and making for some fab photo opps.
7A Gosport Road
Wrapping around Changi’s scenic coastline, this boardwalk is made up of four different sections, including the breathtaking Sunset Walk. Take a romantic stroll along this stretch for a splendid view of the sun dipping over Changi Point
This hotspot for tourists is where the Merlion is situated, but it’s also a gathering place for people to appreciate the dusk. The sun sets right in front of your eyes while Marina Bay, the Helix Bridge and the ArtScience Museum light up across the river. Sublime!
All the way on the other side of the island is a 1.5km-long promenade that runs around the bay, with a bunch of different lookout points over the Straits of Johor. As long as the weather is half decent, you’re guaranteed to catch a perfect sunset.
