Getting high in Singapore

FOR a great night out in Singapore, and a once-in-a-lifetime experience, there's only one place to go. At 282m, Altitude Bar is the highest point on Singapore island and the world's highest open-air bar.

The 360-degree views are breathtaking - from high-rise Singapore to the islands of Indonesia.

Of course, it's not cheap. Altitude's cover-charge can reach $100 on weekends (some drinks included) and it's best to make a reservation.

For a different vibe, head for fine dining with Stellar (one floor down on the 62nd floor of the 1 Raffles building), and sports bar 282 and CityGolf on level 61.

Other attractions include:

  • At 165m up, the ferris-wheel-like Singapore Flyer towers over most of the city, and you can wine and dine in a private compartment.
  • Try a night-time harbour cruise amid the bustling excitement of the shoreline bar and restaurant scene.
  • Take the gondola to Sentosa Island where resorts, beaches and entertainment attractions await. Universal Studios is great for the kids or, if you're a golfer, check out the world-class Sentosa Golf Club, home to the Singapore Open.
