In Singapore, it’s not about how much you spend or which petrol station you remembered to pick up a flaccid bunch of flowers from at the very last minute, it’s about doing something different, something thoughtful and something that you wouldn’t normally do…
If you’ve got your heart set on one of Singapore’s stunning rooftop bars with sensational views of the city skyline or world-class fine dining at Singapore’s best restaurants, there’s plenty to choose from and once you’ve finished eating and drinking, how about a romantic weekend at one of the very best hotels in Singapore? Quite a few offer Valentine’s Day deals including Champagne, rose petals on the bed, late check outs and more hotel romance staples.
But bars, restaurants and hotels, as awesome as they are in Singapore, aren’t the be all and end all. There’s so much to do that still says ‘romance’ but doesn’t say ‘cliché’ and here are some great ideas that your wife, husband, boyfriend or girlfriend will remember long after the petrol station flowers have perished…
Talking of flowers, don’t just buy them, go and see them! The Singapore Botanic Gardens is not only a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only tropical garden in the world with the honour. It’s a great place to stroll through and when you’re there don’t miss the 60,000 orchids at the National Orchid Garden.
From flowers to trees, more specifically SuperTrees at the S$1bn Gardens by the Bay complex. The mind-blowing vertical gardens are one of the most spectacular sights in all of Asia. At night, this multi-coloured wonderland transforms into a sensational light and sound show. You can walk between the ‘trees’ at dusk with incredible views of Marina Bay and take a drink or two at SuperTree by IndoChine, one of Singapore’s most dramatic rooftop bars.
One of the most intimate things a couple can do is to retreat into a world of utter relaxation with luxurious therapies including mani-pedis, foot, back or neck massages or an indulgent full body massage in the comfort of your hotel suite.
For pure relaxation, how about chilling out in the sunshine at the Tanjong Beach Club where you can eat, drink and take in the cool beats, take a tour of Singapore’s best art galleries or take a leisurely romantic walk across the Southern Ridges for some of the best views in Singapore.
There are loads of great things to do on a romantic stopover weekend in Singapore, all you have to do is choose one (or two, or three…)!
