Unlike many large Asian cities, walking is a pleasure in Singapore. Thanks to the government’s efforts to calm traffic and the courtesy of Singapore drivers, walking around the city is relaxing rather than a game of chicken.
Take a bottle of water, a small towel to mop your sweaty brow, and just head off for an amble. The numerous parks are great for a relaxing walk. When the heat and humidity become too much, stop for a cool drink in air-conditioned comfort.
Late night walking is quite safe; you'll find families, couples and groups out enjoying the respite from the daytime heat.
The lush Botanical Gardens are open until midnight.
