Most Romantic Things to do in Singapore

This is a continuation of Happy 10th Anniversary!

So, after we laughed our assess off from the silliest way to spoil a 10th Anniversary Surprise, the trip had just begun. Packing our bags just the night before, we were off to Singapore on a Friday morning till Sunday evening. If you are anywhere in South East Asia, or even in Singapore, why not try a few of these someday?

11am Taking a plane ride

What is more romantic than flying 50,000 feet in the sky on your anniversary day! Even for 45 minutes.

So far, the most value for money airlines I could find was Jetstar, which gave cheaper rates than Fireflyz, Airasia, MAS and Tiger Airways if you are flying from Malaysia.

Second time flying with Jetstar and I have to say a big thank you to the Jetstar team!

This was how Jetstar saved my 10th Anniversary.

2pm Gardens By The Bay

Here is a virtual tour of the Flower Dome if you want to explore but don't wanna get on a plane to go all the way to Singapore.

A walk in the garden at mid-day? Are you nuts? This is the equator with 35 celcius and direct sunlight! How romantic is that? Well, when you are at Gardens By The Bay, weather doesn't matter. Stop by Bayfront MRT station for this attraction.

The two uneven bra-like like buildings are actually artistically crafted greenhouses, which are air conditioned to a cosy 24 degrees Celsius. Lucky for us, the clouds were also plentiful and the weather was actually just right for a walk in the park.

If you are short of time and have an hour or so to spare, pick the Flower Dome. It is the same price as the Rainforest but its much bigger and holds more things to see. For an anniversary trip, it also made sense to see the beautiful flowers. People take their wedding photos here due to the landscape and the ambience.

The actual Gardens by the Bay itself is a large maze of nature and lakes with the most purple cow piece of art, the floating OCBC Skyway trees and bridges which takes you up to canopy level to give you a 180 degree view of the Marina Bay area. This is literary the hanging gardens as gardeners use platforms to water plants stacked vertically into the sky.
Here's a free tour for you to explore!

At night, the trees light up in a spectacular sea of lights, illuminating the bridges and the domes and is a pretty sight from atop the Marina Bay Sands.

4pm. Check-in at the Marina Bay Sands Hotel

We left our luggages at the reception here earlier which was close to the Bayfront MRT station. Expect top notch service at this hotel, where the bell boys use WhatsApp to manage traffic, and German (I think) violinists entertain diners all day. The iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel makes an "M" seen from afar and lies isolated from the city's tall buildings. Plus it has that one of a kind floating deck on its 57th floor.

We checked in a Duluxe Suite overviewing the Gardens by the Bay. The first thing I noticed was that the curtains open automatically when you open the doors. Frigging kewl! Like Hilton in London, the bar automatically records what ever stuff taken out. Also, there was a private balcony giving you a full view of the gardens.

But here's a complaint to MBS for not meeting my expectations.

6.30pm. Sunset and Dinner, In the Sky

"We are going to be late" I looked at BB putting on make up and curling her hair. I didn't want to rush her on our 10th Anniversary but it was going to be a once in a lifetime experience that we were going to be late for.

"Where are we going now?" BB hastily got ready. "It's your next surprise!". We waded though the MRT and as usual, rushed to our next destination.

Out of the Harbourfront MRT, we cut though a mall and VivoCity, into the offices where ExxonMobil Singapore was situated.

"Why so dodgy one?" Yes it did look very dodgy the small dark paths that led to our next stop.

This led to the biggest surprise of the night! Definitely a must try experience.

9pm. Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands

After dinner, the great time doesn't end there! We have the Singapore skyline to see! What better way to do this than 57 stories in the air atop the Marina Bay Sand's Infinity Pool. The view was breathtaking of sparkling city lights. Its like an oasis in the sky.

Atop the deck, there were 3 adult pools connected, there were bars, restaurants, a club, baby pools and the jacuzzis. Remarkably, more than half the people there were Koreans and Japanese girls! How can you tell. Revealing bikini - Koreans. Swimsuit - Japanese. The other half of the people there are the western men trying to get lucky with these oriental girls. Lol. I exaggerate.

You can see the virtual tour here!

Now it was time to get into the water! The winds were exceeding highway speeds there and naturally, the water was chilly. After a few minutes of warming up, the view from the pool was simply breathtaking! Where else can you enjoy city lights at the edge of the pool chillaxing in the water?

Happy 10th Anniversary BB! Love you lots!

Hope our 10th Anniversary was the most memorable one yet!
