In the country that never sleeps, catching an early morning sun can be a compelling activity. Apart from the buildings and cascades that decorate Singapore, there are some wooing and versatile sites to catch the sunrise.
* Marina Barrage
Marina Barrage is a dam that was formed as a confluence of five rivers of Singapore. It is a park planted with trees and laid with cycle tracks. The Singapore skyline can be seen against the rising sun from the opposite side of the park. Apart from watching the sunrise, the park is typically a jogging and picnic destination.
* Fort Canning Park
Fort Canning Park is a hill with was once the Headquarters of the Far East Command Centre and British Army Barracks. To reach the hilltop, you are going to have to trek for about 25 minutes. There are now nine historical gardens mounted on the 48-meter tall hill, each of which serves as an amusing sunrise destination.
* Pulau Ubin
Pulau Ubin is an offshore island in the northeast of Singapore. Ferry rides and bumboats are available from 5:30 AM from Changi Point Ferry Terminal every day. If you don’t want to miss out on the sunrise, then set your alarm clocks to 6:00 AM. The area around has a glimpse of Singapore in the 1960s. The Pulau Ubin is filtered with crisscross footpaths, bike rentals and cycle trails.
* Woodlands Waterfront Park
Morning strolls along the pathway of the 11-hectare extensive park often manifest a magnificent sunrise in Singapore. The 1.5 km long promenade overlooks the Straits of Johor. Visitors usually carry their bicycles and roller-skates in the park laid down with cycle tracks. Other everyday morning activities include exercise and working out.

Located on Bukit Timah Hill, the stumpy slopes of Mount Faber Park offer yet another glimpse of the beautiful Singapore sunrise skies. The park is covered by secondary rain forest, murals of the local and culturally prominent historical events. The hill is 105 meters in height and thus proves to be a trekking spot. Other everyday activities enjoyed by the visitors include dining, bird watching, exercising and reviewing the heritage site. There are cable cars available to reach the top of the hill.
