Photo 1-12-14 10 52 16 pmThe first time I went to Grandview Park, there was almost no one else there; sitting at the top of the steps was one of the most peaceful times ever. As you can tell, I’m obsessed with any place by the ocean, or high up with a great view. And let me tell you, the view from here is spectacular. You get a 360˚ view of the city, and since it’s in a pretty quiet neighbourhood, it’s not jam-packed with people. Twin peaks is also really nice and makes for a great hike if you walk!

It makes for a nice short trip, and I went back a second time to see the sunset from up there. Alternatively, bring a nice book, sit on the bench right at the top and read the afternoon away.

Perfect for a party night, relaxing evening, date night, friendly get-together, the list goes on; 1-Altitude was by far one of my most favorite visits in Singapore.

The views attract everyone: young and old, locals and tourists; and for good reason. Situated on the 63rd storey, this highest al-fresco bar in the world overlooks downtown Singapore and has some of the most stunning views I have ever had the privilege to see.

Walking around the deck, one of the best views is of Marina Bay Sands, which stands next to the Singapore Flyer. You can just see the super trees at Gardens by the Bay peeking out from behind. The light show at MBS plays every hour as well, which is a must-see from this vantage point.

The atmosphere there is incomparable. The music (mostly remixes) is amazing, which of course means dancing is irresistible. Thankfully, this bar cum club has a dance floor by the bar counter, which fills up around midnight.

Trust me when I say you have to pay 1-Altitude a visit; you’ll feel on top of the world.

(Sorry I mostly took photos of the view.)
