Singapore is made of 63 islands which exude romance and beauty. The verdant green scenery and golden beaches promise a romantic getaway unlike any other. Once a sleepy village today Singapore is a melting pot of cultures and attracts couples from all around the world. More than half of Singapore consists of modern skyscrapers and urban settlements and is the face of the ultramodern city. Other than these, Singapore also boasts of parks, zoos, temples, gardens and waterfalls.

So there is a great variety of romantic spots to take your loved one. Ten most romantic among these are as follows:

Anderson Bridge
Set up in 1910 to replace the crowded Cavenagh Bridge, the Anderson Bridge has become a popular hotspot for lovers.  On ‘Chap Goh Mei’ or the Chinese Valentine’s Day, single men and women indulge in the tradition of throwing apples and oranges into the water, all in search of an ideal partner. Nowadays people attach their mobile numbers and e-mail addresses to the fruits. It is especially romantic to walk over this 100 year old bridge above the Singapore River in the moonlight. Share a meal bought from a street hawker. Throw some rose petals into the water which holds the promise of your attaining eternal love.

The Singapore Flyer
Hug each other atop the giant Ferris wheel which is the Singapore flyer. The Singapore Flyer Observation wheel is the tallest in the world, standing more than 540 feet above the ground. Take a ride at night to view the cityscape all lit up. From the dotted lights of boats in the Marina Bay to the glittering Singapore River, you can catch a panoramic view of Singapore.

Cable Car
At over 70 m above sea level, you can enjoy a grand meal with your loved one. This is via the cable car ride from Mount Faber to the sunny island of Sentosa. Dinner menus may be slightly expensive but worth it, for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. Highly talented chefs dish out vegetarian as well as non vegetarian fare according to your choice. Sky dining can be booked for the time period of 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm, Monday to Sunday. You need to book one day in advance.

You can also have a romantic view of fireworks from new building called as the Jewel box, located in Faber park. This building resembles a musical jewel box and boasts of restaurants and bars. The summit of Mount Faber is reachable by road but there are also many footpaths leading up to the hill.  Sit on one of the benches and enjoy the view of the sea and Sentosa Island.

Yeuh Hai Ching temple
For a spiritually valuable excursion, head to this Temple of Love. This oldest of Taoist temples is dedicated to love and happiness. Join local people in tying red strings together for your own personal happiness. Red strings symbolize those who have not been lucky in love as yet.
