Singapore is one of the world’s cleanest and most orderly cities, so much so that even the trees along the main roads are planted at precise intervals of twenty feet. It is also one of the safest cities in the world, thanks in part to two main local pastimes: shopping and dining. It is quite safe to walk the city streets after dark because they are well lit and occupied by customers and clients at all hours of the day and night.
This city is a shopper’s paradise, where you can find fashion items ranging from small store deals to expensive branded goods. For those who are crazy about cool gadgets and advanced technology, there are lots of stores that sell all the best electronic products.
Singapore is also the dream of every gourmet. Don’t worry, you won’t be hungry here. There are restaurants, cafés, food courts and hawking centers full of food stands everywhere – many of which are open 24 hours a day – so you can find a very good place to eat even at three in the morning.
However, shopping and catering are not all that this city has to offer. Singapore is also full of natural attractions and cultural heritage sites, from botanical gardens and natural parks to temples and museums.
1. Changi Int. Airport
Changi International Airport is one of the best airports in the world and has received hundreds of awards. It has complete facilities for all types of travelers, from babies to adults with special needs. Here are some of the best facilities at the airport:
- Playground for children
- Several outdoor gardens
- Fitness and spa centers
- Transit Hotel
- Internet services
- Medical clinics and pharmacies
Visitors in transit at the airport can enjoy local delicacies on Singapore Food Street in Terminal 3, although in my opinion, the food here is not really up to the task. First, you will need to buy a food card at the entrance kiosk before using the card to pay for food. Neophytes will find this system strange, but it actually prevents food sellers from overcharging their customers or avoiding paying their taxes!
2. Gardens By The Bay
Gardens by the Bay includes three distinct waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East, and Bay Central.
Bay South, the largest of the three gardens, opened its doors in 2012. With its award-winning cooled winter gardens and iconic super-trees, Bay South has put Singapore on the international map and is a source of national pride. Inside Flower Dome, which includes crowd favorites such as Tulipmania, Orchid Extravaganza, and Blossom Beats, bring the beauty and diversity of the plant kingdom to life for everyone to enjoy. While plant displays remain the focal point of the Bay Gardens, attractive programs and excellent service are key to improving the overall visitor experience of the Bay Gardens.
Bay East, the second largest, offers a quiet respite from the lively city and a breathtaking view of the Singapore skyline even as it unfolds over the next century. This green space is open to the public and offers immense potential for future development as a waterfront garden.
3. Jewel Box
The jewelry box is one of the best and most romantic honeymoon destinations in Singapore. Visit Mount Faber Park, one of Singapore’s best natural sites, for a picturesque view of the entire city, including the port. Also, make sure you are comfortable with your partner on the cable car ride to the park or book the jewelry box for a romantic dinner while commuting over the city. The romantic air scene has just had a new twist.
4. Beaches By Sentosa
Sentosa Island must be on the list of places to visit in Singapore for the honeymoon. Known for its pristine beaches, water sports and retreats, enjoy a relaxed morning on the white sand with your love. Take a nature walk in Butterfly Park and the kingdom of insects or a game of beach volleyball on Siloso Beach. Also, make sure to indulge in the Two-gether Day Spa Day’ at the luxurious Botanica Spa for a romantic end to your day.
5. St. John’s Island
Swim in the blue lagoons and the peaceful setting of St John’s Island. Only 15 minutes from the city, this remote island is filled with lush gardens and trees. Spend a romantic picnic on this paradisiacal island far from the lively city and if you are in the mood, spot some dolphins too.
This only scratches the surface of Singapore’s many fabulous attractions for couples. An exotic nightlife, adventurous water sports, amazing cuisine and charming temples in the shade of the skyscrapers, Singapore is a unique romantic getaway.
