“Hitting a farmer's or local market during the weekend and cooking fresh food with a couple of beers or some wine. Best when other couple friends join the fun!”

Dating Spot(s): Qing Tian Gang, YangMing Mountain

“Take a quick bus ride to YangMing Mountain, followed by a short hike up to Qing Tian Gang to see beautiful green pastures and feed the free range cows. Remember to bring along small picnic treats and a book while you enjoy the open air and sun. Do a weather check before going though!”

Date Activity: Spend a day at Sentosa

“Sentosa is a popular island resort in Singapore. There’s quite a number of things to do in Sentosa together – You can visit the aquarium, hang out at the Universal Studio theme park or simply just relaxing by the beach and sip on a glass of mocktail!”

Dating Spot(s): Gardens by the Bay

"The mesmerizing waterfront views across three gardens makes Gardens by the Bay a beautiful place in the city for a stroll. At night, the whole place seems to come alive with a magical display of light. If you want a closer experience with unique plants and hidden floral gems, you can visit the cooled conservatories at a reasonable admission fee."
