#3 Attractions in Singapore- Nox – Dine in the dark
Fancy a nice dinner over the adrenaline rush? We’ve got you covered. Nox – Dine in the dark is almost definitely going to give you a truly unique dining experience.

For once, you’ll just have to rely on all your other senses to enjoy your meal. It’s cool, you’ll see (well, actually you won’t).
