From stylish rooftop bars to picnics in the park, Singapore knows how to treat a lady (and its gents!). This cosmopolitan city is the perfect place to spend time with your loved one and make romantic memories together this Valentine’s Day. Here’s our pick of Singapore’s most romantic moments…
1 Altitude Bar
Whether you’re heading for cocktails in the clouds at one of Singapore’s award winning rooftop bars, dining on the 62nd floor of One Raffles Place at 1- Altitude (one of the world’s highest dining rooms), the views of Singapore’s incredible skyline will make your heart skip a beat. Cheers!
Singapore Botanic Gardens
It may be one of the world’s most exciting cities but Singapore is also a nature lover’s paradise. The UNESCO World Heritage Singapore Botanic Gardens is better than any bouquet of flowers! Lay a picnic out in the meadows or among the rainbow-coloured blooms and don’t miss the magical orchid garden, which boasts more than 1,000 varieties and 2,000 hybrids. If you’re lucky you could even catch a concert along the banks of the garden’s picturesque Symphony Lake.
Mount Faber Cable Cars
One of the most exclusive tables in the city! Take your love to another level and board the private cabin cable car for dinner, 328 above sea level. Private dining cable cars depart from Mount Faber and guests can enjoy a four-course meal and jaw-dropping panoramic views of the city.
Gardens by the Bay
Few places can beat the Gardens by the Bay for futuristic romantic walks. This kaleidoscopic wonderland spans 101 hectares and boasts towering gardens and colourful ‘super trees’ right on the waterfront. As night falls the installations create a spectacular light and sound show. Take your loved ones to see the Flower Dome, the Cloud Forest’s tropical flora, the cascading waterfall and hit the Skyway walkway to get a bird’s eye view.
Valentine’s Day is all about quality time together and if it’s pampering you’re looking for Singapore has five-star spa service covered. Enjoy a luxury mani and pedi looking out over the city from 20 floors up, indulge in couple’s massage at one of the city’s spectacular hotels, book a private hydrotherapy suite for two – complete with champagne and rose petals, or relax by the infinity pools with cocktails in hand.
A couple that plays together, stays together and from hiking, biking, kayaking and canoeing to mountaineering, trampolining and sky diving, those with a spirit for adventure will be spoilt for choice. For a fun-filled leisurely afternoon in beautiful surroundings, rent bikes and follow the Punggol Waterway – keep an eye out for the striking kingfishers along the water’s edge. The Eastern Coastal Park Connector Network also connects some of the city’s most famous parks and beaches, so get your skates on and take a ride together.
If music be the food of love, play on! The Esplanade’s bay-side outdoor theatre plays host to contemporary and classical concerts throughout the year and has a fantastic line up of events. Book tickets for a romantic night under the stars you’ll never forget.
For jaw-dropping views of the Singapore skyline why not cruise along Singapore’s waterways on a traditional bumboat? Tour Boat Quay’s colourful houses, pass by the city’s famous landmarks and learn a little about Singapore’s history. Our top tip – hit the water around sunset so you can enjoy the changing colours and the laser show and the twinkling lights of the city in Marina Bay when night falls.
Active couples will love Singapore’s outdoorsy style so pack a gourmet breakfast and bottle of bubbly and head to picturesque Mount Faber to watch the sunrise over Singapore. Of course, if you just want to cuddle in bed in the morning instead, you can always enjoy the stunning views at sunset and the bubbly will still taste as sweet. The Southern Ridges trail winds through the treetops all the way to Labrador Nature Reserve – keep an eye out for the resident monkeys!
Coffee and Kittens
Looking for something cute and cuddly this Valentine’s Day? How about a kitten café? Yes, really! Take a trip to one of the city’s newest and quirkiest coffee shops and enjoy a coffee with cuddly kittens as company.
