Singapore has a remarkable skyline with over 4,300 highrises, the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands.  Here are a few places where you can marvel at the lights when the sun goes down while sipping on a cocktail:

Ku De Ta: is located atop Marina Bay Sands and spans 40,000 square feet, 200 meters above sea level.  With a renowned restaurant, indoor and outdoor lounge, and an infinity pool open to hotel guests, Ku De Ta is the perfect venue for visitors.  Weekend nights tend to be the busiest so expect a long queue in the Sands' lobby and come dressed in your dancing club attire.  Remember to bring your camera to capture the view of the central business district across the bay.

Lantern: is the Fullerton Hotel's rooftop bar also located on the Marina Bay waterfront facing Marina Bay Sands.  Hotel guests can swim in the rooftop pool while visitors can enjoy a cocktail at an outdoor table or on one of the canopy style beds.  Lantern has a casual atmosphere reminiscent of an upscale South Beach lounge.  It is recommended to visit around 8pm or 9:30pm during the 15 minute light and water show presented across the bay by Marina Bay Sands.    

1-Altitude: is the world's highest alfresco gastrobar and is located at Level 63, One Raffles Place.  The Gallery & Bar offers breathtaking 360 degree views of Singapore, premium cocktails and food options.  In addition to the rooftop bar, 1-Altitude has six golf simulators (Citygolf, level 61) and Stellar, a fine dining restaurant serving western cuisine on level 62.  The lower levels likewise offer views with floor-to-ceiling windows.
