Singapore may not be known as the city of love but it sure does not lack romantic things to do with your loved ones. You and your partner can choose to indulge in fine cuisines, enjoy the breeze on a romantic evening cruise or ease the weeks tension away with a spa treatment.
Dine at the second highest hill in Singapore with your loved one and enjoy the serenity of being amidst lush natural greeneries. Nestled on Mount Faber is the popular Jewel Box, which houses four restaurants – Black Opal, Moonstone, Sapphire and Faber Bistro. The restaurants, which are 106 meters above sea level, offer a variety of cuisines, from Japanese to European menus. Diners will also enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of Singapore’s central business district area, especially once the sun comes down and the lights come on. The twinkling lights from the cable cars traveling from Mount Faber to Sentosa Island exudes an enchanting atmosphere, transporting you and your loved one away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Be sure to place a reservation with the restaurants before heading up the hill.

Stroll down the beaches of Singapore in the evening with your partner and enjoy the cooling sea breeze against your face and in your hair. A trip to the beach is generally inexpensive and definitely does not compromise on the romance. Various local food fares are available by the beaches, so you need not worry about food. However, to make the day even more romantic, you can prepare a picnic basket for two by the sea, spread a mat on the sand and dine at sunset (only on the West side beaches).
