Top 4 Nightclubs in Singapore

Do you have just one night to spend in Singapore and want to make the most of it? There is no need to run helter-skelter looking for places to party. Here are the top three night clubs to hit on your last or only night in the Lion City, no matter what your agenda.

Don’t fret over the travelling. The public bus transport system in Singapore will easily take you to any of the following places. If you are travelling from Malaysia, booking tickets from redbus.sg is highly convenient for any of the express buses and you will reach your destination safely in time.

To dance the night away – Attica, Clarke Quay
Want to spend the entire night simply in your dancing shoes? The destination for outrageous parties in Singapore is Attica. Variety is considered to be the soul of Attica and it is considered to be one of the hottest Night Clubs in Clarke Quay. The Club is known to have 2 levels wherein level 1 is filled with flashing lights, long couches and loud music playing in the backgroundA Dance Floor is offered on level 2 of the club. It is known to attract a vibrant and young crowd of locals as well as tourists.� Top notch house music played by DJs from across the globe meets sophisticated art and food for an unforgettable night.

For the love of drinks – Tippling Club and Orgo
your evening has to be one where you slip away on some of the finest drinks available and Singapore has that and more for you. Classics such as Dropje Daiquiri and Juniper Sling taste best at the Tippling Club. While Orgo is meant for the martini lovers.

SONAR
Widely considered to be one of the best live music clubs in Singapore, SONAR is conveniently located on the shopper’s paradise that is Orchard Road. As well as live music, SONAR has DJs playing before and after the band. Sit/stand downstairs if you want to be a part of the crowd or head upstairs for a quieter drink at Elysium Lounge (By reservation only, opened in Dec 2014). The club is open throughout the week. It alternates between live music performances and club DJ sets. It is known to feature singers, dancers and Djs from all over Asia which includes countries like Japan, Korea, Malaysia. Singapore, China, Thailand and Taiwan.�� There is no cover charge unless there is a special event.

Trace Club
Trace Lounge is one of the latest clubs to set up at Clarke Quay, the epicentre of Singapore’s after-dark action. Located on Magazine Road next to Central Mall and just a few minutes’ walk up the river from Clarke Quay MRT, Trace goes heavy on the EDM and hip hop, with some top notch lighting effects (we love the lasers) and sound system to match. Following the trend of many other clubs it is open only for 3 nights of the week which is Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.� They also have a special Ladies Night on Wednesday.

Berkendara dengan Bus dari Denpasar Menuju Batam

Denpasar
408
Denpasar adalah ibu kota Provinsi Bali dan merupakan pusat semua departemen pemerintah, bank internasional dan perusahaan komersial lainnya. Kota ini dikenal sangat mempertahankan budaya Bali yang sangat unik, meskipun di sisi lainnya kota ini telah berubah menjadi salah satu kota paling maju di seluruh dunia. Hal ini dapat dilihat dengan jelas melalui banyaknya taman, kuil, universitas dan juga pusat bisnisnya. Denpasar juga memiliki pura yang didedikasikan untuk menghormati dewa tertinggi Bali, Sang Hyang Widi. Ada beberapa patung yang bentuknya sangat menarik yaitu kura-kura dan dua naga mistis di kuil ini. Arsitektur Pura bentuknya menyerupai istana Bali. Tempat itu kini telah diubah menjadi museum yang di dalamnya terdapat berbagai koleksi seni kuno dan modern. Ketika Anda berada di Bali bersama teman atau keluarga Anda, pastikan untuk mengunjungi Jalan Gajah Mada, yang terletak di sisi barat Denpasar karena jalan ini memiliki cukup banyak tempat sejarah dan budaya untuk dapat dikunjungi. Bali juga sering menjadi tempat beberapa pameran seni digelar. Ada lukisan indah, ukiran dan kerajinan yang dipamerkan di pameran ini yang dibuat oleh penduduk setempat di sini.

Alat transportasi yang dianggap paling baik di wilayah Indonesia adalah bus. Daripada harus terjebak macet dan menghabiskan banyak uang untuk bahan bakar kendaraan, hampir seluruh penduduk yang tinggal di sini lebih suka bepergian dengan menggunakan bus. Bus yang beroperasi juga cukup teratur dengan bus yang tiba hampir setiap 15 menit. Apabila Saya bisa menyarankan satu hal, lebih baik Anda memesan tiket bus terlebih dahulu dari www.redbus.id karena tiket bus setiap harinya terjual habis dengan cepat. Redbus menawarkan tiket bus dengan potongan harga yang besar dan Anda memiliki pilihan untuk memilih dari berbagai jenis bus seperti ekonomi, ekspres dan VIP. Perjalanan dengan menggunakan bus akan memakan biaya antara Rp 50.000,- sampai Rp 200.000,- semuanya tergantung dari kelas bus mana yang dipesan. Jika Anda memang sedang terburu-buru, Saya akan merekomendasikan Anda untuk memesan bus ekspres karena jenis bus ini memiliki lebih sedikit tempat pemberhentian dan pastinya akan membawa Anda ke tempat tujuan lebih cepat. Jika Anda memiliki anggaran pengeluaran yang ketat, Anda bisa memesan tiket Anda di bus ekonomi. Bus VIP adalah kelas terpisah dengan tempat duduk, film serta makanan ringan. Jadi pesanlah tiket Anda sekarang dan buatlah perjalanan yang tak terlupakan.


Batam
412
Pulau Batam terletak di Provinsi Kepulauan Riau, dimana kota yang sangat terkenal yaitu Kota Batam berada. Kota ini berbatasan langsung dengan Negara Singapura dan hanya berjarak 15 km dari selat. Kota ini juga merupakan salah satu zona perdagangan bebas yang paling besar di Indonesia. Ada sekitar 5 terminal feri yang bisa Anda gunakan untuk menyeberang ke Negara Singapura. Pulau ini adalah salah satu pulau terbesar di Kepulauan Riau Indonesia dan memiliki salah satu desa pesisir terbesar. Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, Kota Batam telah mengalami urbanisasi yang pesat dan kini bahkan sudah memiliki bandara yang modern serta pusat wisata dan bisnis. Infrastruktur kota inilah yang menarik sebagian besar wisatawan untuk datang ke sini. Beberapa tempat penginapan wisata dan hotel mewah memiliki lapangan golf tersendiri.

Hanya ada operator bus lokal yang beroperasi pada rute antara Kota Denpasar dan Kota Batam. Bus berangkat setiap pagi pada pukul 10.00 dan akan ada beberapa pergantian bus selama perjalanan berlangsung. Total durasi perjalanan adalah sekitar 3 hari sampai 4 hari dan Anda akan berganti feri sebanyak 2 kali. Jarak antara kedua kota kurang lebih sekitar 3.000 km dan akan dikenakan biaya sekitar Rp 700.000,- sampai Rp 800.000,-.

Bus journey to Kuala Kangsar from Little India




Little India is truly as per what its name suggests. The Indian citizens settled here in the late 18
th century and this little pocket today will remind you of the sights and sounds of the country. It is located to the east of the Singapore River, is right across the most economical, and pocket friendly accommodations for tourists. This place is truly the most colourful and vibrant part of the city of Singapore. A shopping experience will not be like one of your regular experiences here, as you will come across a vibrant range of products that have been handcrafted by the local Indians here.


This place is quite different from the scene of the local air-conditioned shopping mall as it is a roadside street market with stalls set one after the other. There are also temples of different religions standing across this street. The place is sure to leave a long lasting impression on your memory Products here are priced comparatively lower but at the same time are quite durable. When I shopped here for the first time, I was quite surprised at the amount of shopping that I had done and the cash that I had left over. I am quite lucky as I had no idea about this place and came across its name for the first time from redbus.sg , where I was booking my bus tickets for my next holiday tour in Malaysia. This place will definitely leave you spoilt for choice as it is a completely diversed neighbourhood with people from different ethnicities visiting here all throughout the year.


The culture, food is also quite different from what you get to see across the world. Whether it is electronics, souvenirs, fresh food, clothes, artwork and traditional Indian products, all of them have been priced quite reasonably. Make sure to visit City Square Mall across the street, which is a little more civilised than Mustafa Centre but at the same range of products. The place is marketed as Singapore��‚��„�s first eco-friendly mall as it has been built with technology that is not harmful to the environment.



There were about three Operators plying on the route between Little India and Kangsar. Starmart Express, the One Travel and Tours and Transstar Express were among the popular Operators plying here. Starmart Express has about six buses plying throughout the day letting it have a monopoly over the other Operators. However, Starmart Express being a Luxury Coach Operator it attracts people only those who are seeking luxurious travel. The prices are accordingly higher starting from SGD38. There are about 27 seats in each Bus and the total duration of the journey is about 9 hours. However, if you leave earlier in the day you can complete your journey in 7 hours, as you will avert almost all traffic. Starmart has buses plying from 7:00 am in the morning uptill 10:00 pm in the night, leaving the time of travel completely up to you!

444


Singapore is most likely one of the family-friendly destinations in Asia, because of the abundance of attractions taking into account all ages, a spotless and proficient open transport framework and it is generally minimal size. Teenagers will love the parks and dynamic attractions while even youthful families will experience no difficulty getting around as strollers and pushchairs can be utilized all around. The best activities with youngsters in Singapore frequently exploit nature, be that on Sentosa Island simply off the southern tip of Singapore or in the numerous fun and instructive parks and historical centers scattered all through the downtown region.

Traveling in and around Singapore is quite convenient and hassle free since it has some major bus terminals and express buses and your preferred mode of bus transport can be booked online.

Singapore Discovery Centre

All age, any weather attractions are on offer at Singapore Discovery Centre, offering everything from paintballing to 3D movies and even zorbing. Indoor activities include learning what goes into recording the news in mock television studio and a look back at Singaporean history and culture designed especially to be relevant to children.

Gardens by the bay
These otherworldly structures spread out across Marina Bay will surely amaze children of all ages, especially come nightfall when they turn into a spectacle of light. The famous Supertree structures offer an impressive skywalk over the gardens, over-sized seashell-shaped greenhouses recreate chilly mountain climates and there are hundreds of trees and plants to discover.


KidZania Singapore

Some of the highlights out of the 80 or so role-play activities include a fully sized fuselage of a Boeing 737, a replica bank and a mini hospital where the kids can brush up on their triple-coronary bypass skills.

Pergi ke Bandung dari Semarang dengan Bus

455


Kota Semarang adalah ibu kota Provinsi Jawa Tengah dan terletak tepat di sebelah pantai utara laut Jawa. Kota ini adalah ibu kota Provinsi Jawa Tengah dan berada tepat di tengah-tengah ujung pantai timur dan barat pulau ini. Jika Anda ingin melihat keseluruhan pelabuhan dari jarak jauh, Bukit Candi adalah pilihan terbaik untuk Anda. Dari tempat ini, Anda juga bisa melihat berbagai pemandangan seperti dataran rendah, ladang yang penuh dengan tanaman hijau, pegunungan yang sangat indah dan kota itu sendiri. Lingkungan dan suasana di Kota Semarang sangat cocok untuk melakukan perjalanan di siang hari dan juga perjalanan wisata.

Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir, kota yang indah ini telah menjadi pusat administrasi dan perdagangan seluruh Indonesia. Jika Anda melihat dari dekat, Anda akan menyadari bahwa sebagian besar kantor, ruang komersial, kawasan industri terletak di daerah dataran rendah kota sedangkan sebagian besar kompleks perumahan mewah dan tempat penginapan terletak di sisi berbukit kota. Semua rumah yang ada di sini memiliki pemandangan kota yang indah dan juga pemandangan samudra yang luas di sekitarnya. Jendela-jendela di rumah-rumah ini biasanya dibiarkan terbuka agar dapat menikmati pemandangan hijau yang indah. Saya juga mengunjungi bagian kota yang lebih tua, yang jaraknya cukup dekat dengan pelabuhan laut, di tempat ini Anda masih bisa melihat area yang menarik dimana bangunan yang dibangun dari zaman Belanda masih berdiri tegak dan kokoh. Dalam beberapa tahun terakhir bangunan baru telah muncul tepat di samping dan di seberang tempat-tempat Belanda ini. Daerah ini wajib Anda kunjungi untuk sekedar berjalan-jalan dan melihat-lihat.

Jika Anda masih memiliki waktu luang dari perjalanan dengan tur Anda, pastikan untuk melihat sekilas Pertunjukan Wayang yang banyak ditampilkan di kota ini. Saat Saya berinteraksi dengan penduduk setempat di sini, Saya menyadari bahwa kebanyakan orang yang tinggal di Semarang adalah orang-orang Jawa. Selain orang Jawa, Anda akan menemukan banyak orang keturunan Tionghoa yang telah menetap lama di sini. Namun agar Anda bisa berinteraksi dengan masyarakat setempat, sedikit ilmu bahasa Indonesia dan bahasa Jawa akan sangat membantu. Butuh waktu sekitar 4 hari untuk berkeliling ke seluruh kota dan akhirnya tiba saatnya untuk mengakhiri perjalanan Saya di kota yang indah ini. Saya melihat jadwal perjalanan Saya dan kota tujuan berikutnya adalah Kota Bandung.

Karena telah mempunyai pengalaman memuaskan sebelumnya, kali ini Saya juga memutuskan untuk memesan tiket bus dari website ini redbus.id. Karena tidak banyak orang yang memilih untuk berwisata ke Bandung dari kota ini, sehingga hanya ada dua operator yang mengoperasikan bus menuju kota tersebut. Pahala Kencana memiliki sekitar 10 bus yang beroperasi dalam satu hari mulai dari pukul 08.00 pagi hari sampai pukul 17.30 sore hari. Karena Pahala Kencana adalah operator bus eksekutif, biaya tiket untuk satu orang dimulai dari harga Rp 180.000,-.

Total durasi perjalanan antara kedua kota ini sekitar 10 jam dan operator bus akan membutuhkan beberapa kali waktu istirahat selama perjalanan berlangsung. Nusantara adalah operator bus mewah yang memiliki 3 bus yang beroperasi setiap hari menuju kota ini. Biaya satu tiket dimulai dari harga Rp 290.000,- dan bus dilengkapi dengan berbagai fasilitas terbaik. Kursi cukup nyaman dan masing-masing kursi memiliki tempat pengisiannya sendiri, tidak seperti bus lain yang memiliki tempat pengisian yang diperuntukkan untuk seluruh barisan.

A Bus Ride from Penang to Kuala Lumpur

351

Penang which is the island of modernity and old world charm is located in the sub region of Peninsular Malaysia. The best time to visit Penang is between the months of November to January and March to May. The weather here is always pleasant. The city is divided into two parts – Penang island which also included the city’s capital George Town and the other part is Seberang Perai. The city has been dubbed as the Pearl of the Orient and also the Silicon Valley of the East – thanks to its ever progressing commercial centres and the industrialised states that have a thriving economy. Upon visiting this city you will realise that although it is quite modernised today but as you dwell deeper within the city you will see that at its heart it is still a city that embraces and acknowledges its old customs and traditions.

The population is vastly heterogenous owing to which several different languages are spoken here. Hence it is not a surprise that Geoprge Town which is the capital city has been listed as the world cultural heritage site by the UNESCO. The city also offers some of the most stunning views of the sparkling coast of Malaysia as you travel alongside its road. From parks to beaches, Penang will not fail to astonish you on any front. If you are one of those who like to live in the lap of luxury you can choose from its wide range of 5 star Hotels. This includes the famous Seven Terraces in George Town which is one of the most well equipped and modernised hotels in Penang. However there are also some budget friendly options like Hotel Royal Penang and the Rainbow Paradise Beach Resort. Although light on pockets these hotels do not fall short of any modern facilities. After my 15 day tour in this city it was time for me to visit my next destination which is the capital city of Malaysia, Kuala Lumpur.

Based on my previous experience I headed straight to this website redbus.my to book my bus tickets to Kuala Lumpur.� As per the website there were more than 7 Operators.� Plus Liner, Kbes, Trans Nasional, Nice, Qalaf Express, Cepat Express and Star Mart Express were the ones having daily buses on this route. Since it is only a 4 hours journey between these two cities there were limited luxury coach operators. Nice, Plus Liner, Star Mart Express were some of them. The cost of tickets for a luxury bus started upwards of MYR48 where as those of executive coach operators’ start from MYR35. There are buses starting from 12:00 am midnight till 11:00 pm.� Since the duration of the journey is 4 hours make sure not to leave during peak hours as the 4 hour journey might get extended to 6 hours. I found the ticket prices to be quite reasonable as well as the quality of service on the Plus liner coach is top notch.

A Bus Ride to some of the attractions of Langkawi

378

Langkawi is full of plush green landscapes, parks, significant landmarks that should definitely not be missed. This is one of Malaysia most popular destinations and is home to several cultural attractions, excellent opportunities for divers, a great nightlife and shopping that is quite easy on your pockets. Langkawi is also popularly known for its calm and serene beaches, which is rated among the best in the world. Langkawi is best explored when you travel by road and I highly recommend you to do so by boarding a bus and zipping around the city. Langkawi buses are known for their strict adherence to timings.

Malaysia surely has many reasons to boast about their strategically planned road networks. The road planning is such that you can reach every nook and corner of the city without having to change your mode of transport frequently. You can just board a bus and reach your destination without any interchange of buses. Apart from this, the punctuality and low fares of the bus transit system has encouraged people to leave their own cars back at home. These buses have their own tracking system and there is no need to wait at the bus stop either. You can travel carefree without your wallets thanks to redbus.my, which will let you book your bus tickets online. So next time you plan on going somewhere open your redbus app, book your tickets and zip through the city conveniently and hassle free. The website also rewards you via discounts and cashback offers!

Langkawi Sky Bridge

A 125-metre long pedestrian bridge offers magnificent views of Telaja Tujuh Water Falls. The Waterfall is set at 700 metres above sea level and can only be accessed via the final station of the famous Langkawi Cable Car Ride. You can board a bus that will take you to the entrance point of this Cable Car Service. The only requirement for you to get on this ride is that you should be above 12 years of age. The bridge has a very sturdy design and can accommodate more than 250 people at a given point of time. The bridge is a picture perfect destination as the views are simply stunning. The ride is definitely not for those who are faint-hearted but the ones who are not, are simply going to have a memorable experience.

Eagle Square

It is a 12-metre tall sculpture in the shape of an eagle that is just ready to take a flight. The structure has been built on top of an elevated platform and is just at a walking distance from landmarks like jetty point mall and several restaurants as well as duty free shops. It also houses small fountains, bridges and terraces and since it is located quite close to the sea, it has become a popular spot amongst the youngsters for clicking pictures. You can board an express Bus and get off at the Jetty Point Mall and you can easily reach Eagle Square.
