Mandarin Oriental Singapore

Zeroing in on an activity or destination can be quite the challenge, especially if you're the type to want to always have options. It's a good thing that there are places that offer quite a few choices when it comes to dining experiences, like the Mandarin Oriental Singapore. For Valentine's Day, their three restaurants will be ready to give guests a special experience. Craving coziness? Go for Melt Cafe. Feeling fancy? Try the offerings at Dolce Vita. If you're looking at doing something that's romantic and classic, go for the Cherry Garden.

National Museum of the Philippines

There are a lot of good places to eat at in the Philippines, but if you really want to make your V-Day celebration memorable, take your loved one to the National Museum. February is National Arts Month in the Philippines, and to celebrate that, entrance to the museum has been made free for the entire month. Marvel at wonderful and historical art pieces together before grabbing dinner.  



Just as marvelous as art pieces, skylines are wonderful to look at. If you're in Singapore and would like to experience gazing at the beauty that is the Marina Bay while enjoying sumptuous food, head over to LeVel 33. With the spectacular view as your backdrop, the mood for romance will surely be sparked.

Perdana Botanical Garden

Valentine's Day is a bit controversial in Malaysia — some have called for “banning” the occasion — but if you want to celebrate your and your special someone's love, you can still definitely do so. Enoy a leisurely stroll at the Perdana Botanical Garden and gaze at the sights. Located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, getting to and from the garden will be easy. Plus, the experience will be something out of the ordinary if you're the type to usually just go out and eat.


The Scarlet Singapore

Celebrating love doesn't have to be just on Valentine's Day. If you're so inclined, why not extend your celebration? A staycation at a cozy hotel would be just perfect. Singaporeans are in luck because The Scarlet has quite a few romantic offerings they can take advantage of, such as a Love Basket waiting for you in the room you booked.
