Sentosa is ready to make your evenings even more memorable with its Pop Up Night series of programmes. Kick off with the State of Fun’s Pop Up Night at Siloso Beach (until November 12, 2017) where you can catch Instagram-worthy UV neon art installations by local artists the likes of Samantha Lo, SophO, the Super System and Adeline Loo. End 2018 with a bang at Pop Up Night at Imbiah Lookout (November 24, 2017-January 1, 2018) where visitors can enjoy live performances to celebrate the year-end festivities.

2. ONE˚15 Luxury Yachting Weekday Sunset Cruise
Bask in the beauty of the setting sun, as its breathtaking hues colour the horizon while lounging on board a private yacht. Available on weekday evenings from Mondays to Thursdays, the Weekday Sunset Cruise will whisk you and your guests away from the hustle and bustle of city life on an exploration of the Southern Islands — in style. A myriad of vessels, including motor yacht Le Tara, sailing catamaran Ximula and open-top cabin cruiser Esprit de Paris, is yours for the picking. Be sure to pack your picnic baskets and bubbly, as there is no better way to experience sunset than with the wind in your hair and a glass in hand.

End the week on a high note at the decidedly hip W Singapore. Loved for its coastal setting (and not to mention, large outdoor pool and WET Bar), unique programming and 240 fashionably furnished guest rooms, a night or two here will help to recharge your spirits.

And since you are already there, ask for a table at SKIRT, which is known for mouth-watering prime cuts of meat and sustainably sourced seafood.

Here’s a dining experience that comes closest to a vacation in the Spanish Mediterranean. Located at Quayside Isle in Sentosa Cove, Sabio by the Sea is known as much for its laid-back atmosphere and unobstructed view of the marina, as for its tantalising grilled meats and seafood tapas. Open every day (except Tuesdays) till 10:30pm, and 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays, the eatery will draw you in with its freshly made sangria and array of traditional favourites such as jamón, paella, churros and chorizo.
