Moves to crank up night-time buzz

Moves to crank up night-time buzz 

 

FORGET rushing home after work to watch television or sleep early.

Singapore’s urban planners want you to stay out late more and take in the city’s buzz after dark, when the weather is cooler.

 

The effort to cultivate more night owls islandwide starts with Singapore’s first Night Festival in July, when people can pay a midnight visit to a museum, dance the night away at a street party or take in an open-air performance.

 

And improved night lighting, new street fixtures and more public spaces for night activities will also follow in four key areas: Orchard Road, Singapore River, Bras Basah/Bugis and Marina Bay.

 

The blueprint for after-dark entertainment was unveiled last night by National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan at the Singapore Institute of Architects’ annual dinner at the Suntec convention centre ballroom.
