 8 Perfect Spots to Catch the Sunset in Singapore

There’s no shortage of places to catch the perfect sunset in Singapore. However, there are some places so picturesque, they’re hard to beat.

Here are some of our favourite spots where you can get that perfect Instagram photo!

1. One Altitude

Altitude, Singapore


With a viewing gallery, a rooftop bar, a restaurant, a club and a café, this place has it all and it boasts phenomenal views. The rooftop bar, which is located on the 63rd floor, is actually the highest al fresco bar in the world. The cover charge is S$18 per person.

Opening hours: Sun-Tues 6pm-2am, Wednes-Thurs 6pm-3am, Fri-Sat 6pm-4am.

2. Ion Sky


This is simply an observation deck with sky-high 360-degree views of Singapore. There’s a BEHOLDTIM telescope, which allows you to see things in both day and night view regardless of current conditions, to enhance your experience.

Opening hours: Daily 3pm-6pm

3. New Asia Bar

When in Singapore, reserve your energy for the evening...

Taking up the 71st and 72nd levels of Swissotel The Stamford, this is the highest place to watch the sunset from while sipping on some refreshing drinks. The floor slants at 20 degrees to give off a vertigo effect, so don't worry if you start feeling whoozy!

4. Marina Bay Sands Skypark

6. Esplanade Rooftop

Esplanade Rooftop View

A great option if you’re looking for a free spot. Just because you’re not dishing out money, doesn’t mean it’s not picture-worthy. It’s centrally located and is a great choice to enjoy the sunset. It does get crowded as there’s also bar there.

Opening hours: Mon-Sun 11am-2am.

7. Helix Bridge

After Burn

This bridge is a popular spot among photographers. With the Singapore River, the city skyline and amazing backdrop of the sky, you definitely won’t be disappointed.

8. Changi Point Coastal Walk

Purple skies and blue reflections

If you find yourself in Changi Village, this boardwalk is absolutely magical. It’s a 2km-long boardwalk at the western end of Changi Point and it stretches through flora and fauna and Changi Beach.
