Singapore for couples
Enjoy a romantic couples holiday in Singapore
Singapore is such a melting pot of cultures that it appeals to a wide array of travellers and there are certainly more than enough attractions in this small Asian city-state to appeal to couples of all ages and with varied interests.
There really is something for everyone - you can spend your time sunbathing on the beaches of Sentosa Island, sampling the best of Singapore's cuisine, browsing the vast malls of Orchard Road, or exploring the city's galleries and museums.
The nightlife in Singapore is varied and vibrant, so couples who want to indulge in a few drinks as the sun goes down - or even party the night away - won't be short of places to go. And, of course, the hotels in Singapore are fantastic, ensuring your holiday is memorable for all of the right reasons.
Romance in Singapore
The bustling streets of Singapore may not seem like the ideal place for romance initially, but scratch below the surface and you'll discover plenty of quiet corners where you and your loved one can enjoy some memorable moments.
Heading to some of the many public gardens and parks is a must, with the Botanical Gardens being one of the most picturesque spots. The National Orchid Garden is definitely a highlight here, but couples travelling between May and June or October and November should also look out for the Tembusu tree, which blooms in these months and is incredibly beautiful as the flowers open at sunset.
To get an overview of Singapore's skyline, ride the Singapore Flyer - the world's largest giant observation wheel. Sunset is a wonderful time to enjoy the view from the glass pods, but seeing the entire city spread out beneath you will be impressive regardless of the time of day.
Visiting the Esplanade theatre in Marina Bay for a show is another great way for couples to spend time together. The venue often hosts performances by the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, so it's a good idea to find out what will be happening during your stay.
Wining and dining
One of the best ways to enjoy quality time together on a couples holiday is to eat out at fantastic restaurants and Singapore certainly delivers on this front. As the city is a hub of multiculturalism, there is something for everyone on offer in its eateries.
Flavours from India, China and Malaysia are the mainstays, but you'll also find Italian, French and Japanese meals on the menu in some of the city's top restaurants. The area around the riverside is home to numerous establishments with fantastic waterfront locations, while the streets of Chinatown and Little India are bustling with food stalls where you can pick up delicious snacks.
There are a number of signature Singapore dishes that you can try during a holiday here, including Rojak, which is a type of salad, fish dish Otak Otak, and Kaya Toast, which is popular at breakfast time. Of course, no trip to Singapore would be complete without sipping on a Singapore Sling. This gin-based cocktail was invented in Raffles Hotel and you can still enjoy the authentic concoction here to this day - not to mention in many other bars around the city.
Make Singapore part of your honeymoon
If you're planning a honeymoon in Asia, you may want to visit Singapore as part of a twin-centre holiday. The city is a popular stop-off point for those travelling to the likes of the Maldives, Mauritius and the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean.
Its varied attractions are more than enough to keep you occupied for a few days, while the luxury hotels in Singapore are the perfect places to stay on your first holiday as man and wife. Combining a trip to Singapore with a break to one of the pristine island destinations in the Indian Ocean is the ideal option if you'd like to experience the best of both worlds - peaceful and unspoilt beaches, as well as culture, history and urban attractions.
You can choose whether to explore Singapore at the beginning or end of your honeymoon - or possibly split your time more evenly so that you spend more days in the city either side of your week and then have plenty of time to lounge on deserted island beaches in the Indian Ocean.
