“Give a man a prawn and he will eat for a day. Teach a man how to prawn and he will probably spend the rest of his weekends looking for the perfect prawning spot.”


Every spending situation is unique. SingSaver assembles the ‘Best For‘ list, so you can decide what’s best for you.


We’re kidding, of course. But for some Singaporeans, prawning is life. And if you ask around, you’re probably bound to find someone who finds absolute joy in prawning, whether at 3am under an MRT station or on a lazy weekend in an air-conditioned pond in town

Perhaps it is the thrill of catching the juiciest prawns that excites them, or maybe the peace and serenity they experience while patiently waiting for a bite.

Whatever the reason is, there’s no doubt that prawning is a great escape from the hustle and bustle of life. Scroll on for the best prawning spots in Singapore, as recommended by enthusiasts.

Note: Due to the evolving COVID-19 circumstances, events often change timings and dates without prior notice. Do check and confirm the opening hours and prices before heading out. Last updated: 11 February 2021.
