Though Singapore isn't known to be one of the most romantic destinations in the world, that doesn't mean that it doesn't have anything to offer lovebirds. Whether you're in a long-term relationship or just getting to know each other, you're spoiled for choice when it comes to romantic things to do in Singapore for couples.
14 Romantic Things To Do In Singapore For Couples
Just in time for Valentine's Day, we've compiled a list of 14 couple hangout places in Singapore.
1. Admire marine life at the S.E.A. Aquarium
No, Asia's largest aquarium isn't just for families (though you might want to pay a visit to the S.E.A. Aquarium on a weekday to avoid the crowds). We don't know what it is about aquariums that make them so romantic, but we suspect that it's got a lot to do with the low lighting and the ambient sounds. Plus, you can have a romantic dinner at the S.E.A. Aquarium's Ocean Restaurant and for a unique underwater dining experience.

2. Take a picnic at the Gardens By The Bay
Yeah, Singapore can be pretty expensive. But that doesn't mean that you can't have classy dates on the cheap — here's just one of many cheap date ideas Singapore. Take your date to one of Singapore's many public gardens (like the Gardens by the Bay), and equip yourself with a picnic blanket, some snacks, and sunscreen. Perfect.
3. Ooh and aah at all the cute animals at the Night Safari
The Night Safari in Singapore is one of the most romantic things to do in Singapore for couples because it lets you explore a wildlife park under the stars. Sounds like a dream, no?
4. Take a romantic stroll at Fort Canning Hill
On days when you just want to get away from the crowd and commune with nature, you and your significant other can go to one of the most romantic quiet places in Singapore for couples, Fort Canning Hill. It's surrounded by so much greenery that you'll forget you're in the middle of a city, plus it costs nothing to enter, making it one of the best free date ideas in Singapore.

5. Share your thoughts on art and culture at the National Gallery
Feel like flexing your creative brain? Head over to the National Gallery and wow your date with your cultural know-how — or simply take in all the beautiful art.
6. Have a romantic meal in a private cabin car at Mount Faber
Singaporeans are known for being unromantic, but we think that stereotype is completely off-base because of all the romantic dining options in the city. For starters, there are very few cities in the world where you can easily rent an entire cable car to have a romantic meal — yes, you can do that at Mount Faber.
7. ...Or a romantic meal on the Singapore Flyer
Bet you didn't know that you could rent an entire capsule at Singapore's iconic giant ferris wheel, did you? It's perfect for extra special dates — so long as neither you nor your date are afraid of heights.
8. Have a blast at Universal Studios Singapore
Theme park dates bring us back to simpler times when we didn't have to worry about paying bills and pleasing bosses, so it's a great place to take your date and just get in touch with your inner child. Take your cue from Bella Hadid and just hang loose at Universal Studios Singapore!

9. Go cycling at East Coast Park
Cycling at East Coast Park might seem a little cheesy, but hey, you've got to enjoy a little cheesiness when you're in a romantic relationship, eh? Plus, cycling at East Coast Park is one of the most fun affordable date ideas in Singapore, so if you're on a budget, you know what to do.
10. Enjoy cocktails at one of Singapore's many rooftop bars
Feel like exploring Singapore's nightlife with your date? You're spoiled for choice when it comes to romantic bars — Singapore has plenty of rooftop bars for you to take your pick from. Some favourites are 1-Altitude at One Raffles Place, Ce La Vi at Marina Bay Sands, and LeVel 33 in the Marina Bay Financial Centre.

11. Take in the colours of the sunset at the Henderson Waves
The highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore, Henderson Waves connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. Not only is it an architectural marvel, it's also a great place to watch the sunset with your significant other.
12. Go stargazing at the Science Centre Singapore
In the mood for some serious stargazing? Science Centre Singapore's Observatory is open every Friday night for astronomy lessons, shows, and public talks for when you're feeling extra nerdy. You could also enjoy a live planetarium show at the Science Centre Singapore's Omni-Theatre, which also shows other digital movies.
13. Share an intimate garden dinner at The Summerhouse
There are plenty of garden restaurants in Singapore, but The Summerhouse's garden domes are just to die for. Not only can you and your date enjoy some privacy, you also get to enjoy the starry sky from the comforts of your air-conditioned(!), ultra-Instagrammable dome.

14. Sit on the waterfront and enjoy the laser light show
When looking for things to do in singapore for couples, this one's a must-do. Singapore's laser light show is Southeast Asia's largest light and water show. You could enjoy the show from a river cruise, or simply sit on the waterfront and enjoy it for absolutely free.
