Whether you’re planning your honeymoon or celebrating a special occasion
with your other half in Singapore, you may be on the lookout for romantic
activities to do as a couple while on your travels. The good news is that
despite Singapore being an extremely small island, there is an abundance of day
trips, activities and gardens to do and explore. If you’re looking for some
inspiration for the perfect date, or perhaps even to surprise your partner when
you arrive, you’ve come to the right place. In this guide, we’re going to answer
your question ‘where do
couples go in Singapore?’ and list some of the romantic places in
Singapore to visit.
Surround yourself with natural beauty by paying a visit to the Jurong
Lake Gardens. This will make the perfect date day for nature lovers and outdoors
enthusiasts who feel the need to escape the hectic city environment and enjoy a
more relaxed atmosphere. The gardens extend over 90 hectares of impressive,
landscaped lawns and you’ll also find a huge freshwater lake within the
Here you can walk hand-in-hand along forest trails and explore and appreciate
the very best of nature with your beau, or perhaps even shut your eyes for a
couple of hours by relaxing in the hammocks next to the pagodas.
If you’re asking yourself ‘where can I go for my anniversary in Singapore?’, the Changi
Point Coastal Walk is romantic and unique experience. After a full day
exploring the tourist attractions and being surrounded by noise, traffic, crowds
and concrete buildings, walking hand-in-hand with your lover along the seafront
is the perfect escapism come evening time. The boardwalk spans 2.2KM and has 6
distinct sections for you to explore. You may even spot marine life along the
way – including the likes of starfish and crabs.
The best time to explore the Changi Point Coastal Walk would be just
before dusk. You can catch a glimpse of radiant sunsets at approximately 7.12 pm
– so always aim to arrive earlier so you don’t miss it!
Don’t worry about tripping up in the dark – the pathway is well lit with
twinkling lights that add to the romantic atmosphere. What could be more
romantic than sitting with your loved one and taking in the sunset on the seafront?
A trip to Singapore certainly wouldn’t be complete without a boat ride
Clarke Quay of the Singapore river. It’s
up to you which type of boat you’d prefer; from the traditional bumboats to modern
mini-cruise boats; in which you can catch a glimpse of some of the city’s most famous
sights, including the Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade Singapore and Asian Civilisation Museum. Boat rides are in operation
both during the daytime and evening, but the latter would be best if you’d
prefer to stay cool instead of being exposed to the intense heat of the sun.
Watch the Marina Bay
Sands lights show
While in Singapore, you simply cannot bypass the opportunity to visit
Marina Bay Sands and its impressive ‘Spectra’ light show. The perfect romantic evening
for couples after dinner, you’re sure to be astounded by the display of water
jets, lasers and fire geysers that fill the night sky with dramatic colours. The
show lasts approximately 13 minutes and the best part – it’s completely free of
Another must for nature lovers, Gardens by the Bay is certainly much
more exciting than any gardens you’re familiar with back home. You’ll first
make your entrance into the Flower Dome, where you can enjoy cooler temperatures
as opposed to the humid outdoor climate.
Here, you’ll find native plants as well as an abundance of tropical flowers
from across the globe. Look upwards, and you’ll spot the towering ‘supertrees’ combined
with spectacular architecture and twinkling lights. If you’re not afraid of
heights, you could finish off the evening with a visit to the on-site restaurant
which sits above one of the tallest ‘trees’ situated within the gardens.
This temple located in the central business district is otherwise
known as the ‘love temple’ and has become a hotspot with couples all across the
world. Honeymooners in particular venture here to receive a blessing to start
their married life with luck and good wishes. Inside, you’ll find the moon deity
which according to legend is said to reinforce the bond with loved ones – and in
this case, your significant other. Even if you don’t consider yourself a
religious individual, you’ll certainly appreciate the calm environment of the
temple as a place to unwind and reflect.
Where can I cuddle in
Singapore? Well here’s your answer. This spectacular garden sits at a height overlooking
Marina Bay. Here, you’ll gain first-class panoramic views of the city while
sitting amongst magnificent floral displays and landscaped lawns. There are
plenty of comfortable seating areas so you can snuggle up to your partner and
enjoy an evening away from the crowds.
Everyone loves taking a selfie or two while on their travels and the
Bukit Batok Town Park is the perfect place to capture shots of the two of you, amongst
a glorious backdrop of towering rock cliffs and an expansive lake. There is an
abundance of pathways for you to walk along the banks of the lake and enjoy a
picnic or even an hour sunbathing underneath the trees.
This park is extremely popular with photographers who wish to capture
couples shots; so you could consider hiring a professional for the day if you’re
celebrating an engagement or honeymoon and give you lasting memories of your
For a relaxing break in Singapore, why not spend a day checking out
the beaches around Sentosa Island? There are three to choose from - Siloso,
Palawan, and Tanjong; all of which cater for different holidaymakers due to
having completely different vibes. Let’s take a look at each in more detail:
Perfect for thrill-seekers, the Siloso beach is filled with an array
of activities to enjoy including the likes of zip lining, skimboarding and
kayaking. If you’d prefer to sit back and watch your other half having the time
of their life, you can rent a chair on the sands and enjoy the sunshine.
Come nightfall, Siloso turns into a real party hub in which you can
enjoy bustling bars and restaurants including spots like Mambo Beach Club and
If you’re looking for a more casual atmosphere, Palawan is probably
more up your street. Situated just a short drive away is where you’ll find this
laid-back and quieter location, but with a family-friendly nature. On one side
of the beach features playgrounds and parks which is good to know if you happened
to have little ones in tow or wish to experience a little bit of life.
Finally, Tanjong offers the most chilled atmosphere out of the three
beaches and is located in the remote spot of Sentosa. It’s the perfect paradise
you dream about - white sands and a turquoise lagoon for taking a dip, complete
with thatched shelters and palm trees for sheltering from the hot sun.
You may not get any pleasure from visiting a museum or gallery alone,
but the National Gallery Singapore would be great to visit while in the area if
you’re looking to share a relaxed, cultural day with your other half. The
benefit of galleries is that they’re calm and quiet and allows you to enjoy
some meaningful conversations between you while inspecting the artefacts. After
checking out the wonderful sculptures and paintings, you can pay a visit to the
rooftop garden to witness panoramic views of the city below.
How does the idea of eating in the sky sound to you? Well, now you
can do just that with a spot of cable car dining – the ideal activity for
celebrating a special occasion. You’ll be given your own private cabin and
enjoy panoramic views of the city as you indulge in a four-course meal. The
journey starts at Faber Peak and upon arrival, you’ll be served a welcome drink.
If you’re looking for the perfect date night with your other half, nothing
can beat the experience of Singapore Flyer Dining. When booking a capsule on Singapore
Flyer Dining, why not order a bottle of bubbly and toast to your special occasion?
On the journey, the capsule will rotate so you’re able to enjoy 360-degree
views of the city, as well as several other famous locations in the area,
including Marina Bay, Gardens of the Bay and The Central Business District.
You’ll have approximately one hour in your own private capsule which
gives you plenty of time to enjoy the experience and the breath-taking views below.
1-Altitude is the highest rooftop bar in the world – so it sure is a
once-in-a-lifetime experience that you cannot overlook while visiting Singapore.
It is home to a combination of three restaurants and bars, so you can take your
pick of where you’d like to dine – or why not try all three?

with dolphins is certainly a must on the to-do list. Just a stone’s throw from
the city (approximately 15 minutes by car) and you’ll be able to enjoy the

day on the sands and listen to the crashing waves – if you’re lucky, you may
