A diamond ring or a pair of earrings may be a good choice.
So if you’re looking for romantic places for your honeymoon, look no further. Here are some of the best places in Singapore. (You can also book your flights through Cathay Pacific if you are travelling to Singapore from Taipei by clicking on the link.)
Marina Bay Sands
Why is Marina Bay Sands the most romantic? It is because this resort has the world’s largest rooftop infinity pool on the top of it to offer you some incredible views at sunset. There is also a casino, many dining options, bars for a lively nightlife, museums, exhibitions inside Marina Bay Sands. Therefore, you can first explore the museums, have a swim nearing the sunset and head to the bar for a glass of champagne later at night. The Shoppes Mall at Marina Bay Sands is open for a shopping experience and if it is enough, you can head to the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck on 57th level to enjoy Singapore’s skyline.
Gardens by the Bay
Located in the heart of Singapore City, Gardens by the Bay is a massive garden network comprising three gardens Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden. You can easily access the Gardens by the Bay if you are in Marina Bay Sands, as the bridge that connects both the attractions is only 950 meters long. It is also a nice place to get some amazing photos!
The Cloud Forest is one of the main highlights; as the name suggests this is a forest rich in vegetation, waterfalls and it is covered in mist. The Flower Dome on the other hand, which houses different kinds of plants from all over the world is a spectacular sight to see. The flowers are in full bloom no matter what time you visit.
The Floral Fantasy is one of the newest additions, it gives you the impression of being in a fantasy with hanging gardens, flowers hanging from ceilings, rain gardens, cave gardens and so on. If you are interested in blending into a bit of technology, you can also try the ‘Flight of the Dragonfly’ which is a 4D ride. The last part is the supertree groove, a suggestion would be to visit here at night when the trees light up with colours and music to give you a wonderful evening.
Fort Canning Park
Fort Canning Park is a small hill that is intertwined with the long history of Singapore. It is where the decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese invaders during WWII took place. Today, it is used as a venue to hold big concerts and shows. There are many photographic areas in the nine historical gardens as well – the Pancur Larangan, Spice Garden, Artisan’s Garden, Sang Nila Utama Garden, Jubilee Park, Raffles Garden, First Botanic Garden, Farquhar Garden and Armenian Street Park.
If it seems too hard to explore on your own, you can download the augmented reality trail BALIK SG: The Fort Canning Trail and enjoy it in your own way.
Singapore Flyer is the largest Ferris wheel in Singapore standing at a height of 165 meters. So, what is better than having a romantic dinner in the air? Okay, not air exactly but you can have a romantic dinner in one of the capsules in the Singapore Flyer and enjoy two complete rotations, along with panoramic views across the skyline at night! You will get a host to serve you in one hour and also, an opportunity to choose between Western, Chinese and Vegetarian menus!
Changi Point Coastal Walk
The Changi Point Coastal Walk is a favourite spot for couples in Singapore as it lets you enjoy a quiet romantic stroll hand in hand, along a 2.2 km trail. There are many entrances, but I suggest you take the entrance near the Terminal Changi Ferry Port.
The starting point is the Creek Walk, where you can see bumboats and it is located near the Changi Civil Service Club. Next is the Beach Walk, as the name suggests it is a walk along the picturesque beachside filled with different kinds of flowers and plants.
Sailing Point Walk is where you can see yachts at a distance ready to sail, while the Cliff Walk offers you panoramic views of the surrounding areas. In the Kelong Walk, you can see fisherman and the last part, which is the Sunset Walk is one of the best places to catch a sight of a breathtaking sunset in Singapore.
Singapore River Cruise
Singapore River Cruise becomes an unforgettable experience for those who take it and it will be the same for you! The ride goes on for about 40 minutes and that too, in a bumboat which was used in the olden days to transport goods. Singapore River Cruise is best experienced at the night time because it is romantic and the views are mesmerizing. You will be passing many attractions including the Asian Civilisations Museum, Esplanade Singapore, Clarke Quay, The Merlion Park, Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer.
Sentosa Island’s Romantic Places to Visit
The last but the most fun attraction is Sentosa Island, which is a manmade island a few km away from the Singapore mainland. The highlights of the Sentosa Island for couples are Universal Studios Singapore, Adventure Cove Water Park, Skyline Luge Sentosa, Fort Siloso Walk, Dolphin Island and the Sentosa Beaches. There are three beaches for you to enjoy; Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and Tanjong Beach.
A suggestion would be to try the Tanjong Beach because it is less crowded and solitude. You can also have a romantic night here, lying on the sands, enjoying the lights from ships passing by under the sparkling sky. Sweet!
