Singapore might not strike you as the most romantic city in the world, but it certainly has some feathers in it’s cap. From peaceful gardens to an idyllic island, you do not have to be short on ideas when it comes to wooing your date. Whether it’s your first date or your one hundredth, Singapore has much to suit your tastes, budget and style.You do not have to do the same things twice in Singapore, which is part of it’s charm, so let’s take a look at the most romantic places to enjoy a date in the city.
It may sound a little corny or even cheesy, but actually, the light show is worth considering. The location is what makes it special, as it’s proximity to some top class restaurants and entertainment could add the cherry to the top of date night. So, why not consider strolling along the marina after dinner and stopping to watch the light show? You might be impressed with the amount of bubbles that are released into the air at the end of the performance, and there is no doubt that it adds a magic touch to the evening. Put your reservations aside and if nothing more, watching the show could add a little light to the evening, in more ways than one.
Again, this might strike you as an odd choice but the gardens are transformed at night. There is a spectacular sky bridge, which is far more romantic than it sounds. Walking amongst low-lit trees and flowers is a beautiful way to spend an evening and it’s tranquility gives you the chance to talk to your date. They also have a performance of light and sound, but what really gives the touch of love, is the walk into and out of the park. Due to its length, you have plenty of time to stop and smell the roses. If tranquil, calm and private is more your style, then the Gardens by the Bay could be just what you need.
This is perfect for the couple who want to escape from the city and have a taste of something new. Keppel Bay Marina often appears totally separate to the rest of Singapore, due to it’s almost-Caribbean appearance. It is quite the luxurious date, as many of the restaurants are at the upper end of the pay scale, so perhaps consider this for a special occasion. There are plenty of places to enjoy long, romantic walks, as well as boutique hotels to rest your feet after a day of seeing and being seen. Best reserved for a weekend away, Keppel Bay may be just what you need after a busy, working week in the heart of Singapore.
St.John’s is another slice of paradise, outside of the main drag. If you are looking for a break from the norm and to escape for the weekend, then look no further than this little island enclave. St. John’s can only be accessed by boat, which in itself is quite fun. The isolated nature of the island allows for a certain degree of privacy and you can guarantee that it is not swamped by tourists. The island itself is almost tropical, filled with flora and fauna that give it the impression of being straight out of paradise. If you are looking for more than just relaxing, St John’s has plenty of activities. From hiking to swimming, as well as dolphin sightseeing tours. The latter might seem the most romantic option, but you can rest assured that there is plenty for couples to do on the island.
Mount Faber park often tops the list of the most romantic places to take a date in Singapore. One of the reasons for this is it’s location on the second highest hill in Singapore, which allows for some truly breathtaking views over the city. You can also take a cable car from the park to Sentosa Island, which also offers you a bird’s eye view of the city that from the ground, we may not appreciate as much. There are plenty of places to get lost inside the park, so why not take a picnic, some candles and enjoy a romantic dinner for two without any interruptions?
