Singapore is a beautiful destination during the day, filled with lush foliage and beautiful sea views, but lots of visitors find an equally mesmerizing city at night. Local tour companies continue to add well-planned night tours to Singapore’s long to-do list of fun activities. Because Singapore is one of the safest countries in the world, these nighttime adventures are as safe as any day tour.

The unique Wok ‘n’ Stroll three-hour nighttime culinary journey gives participants a behind-the-scenes preview of how Singapore’s fishmongers get their daily catch from the Indian and Pacific Oceans before the fresh fish is delivered to wet markets across the country. This is a highly educational experience, starting at midnight and ending in the wee hours of the morning. It costs about $143 per person and includes breakfast.
