Singapore is one of the 10 most Instagrammed honeymoon destinations ranking 8th in a newly-compiled list. The island nation attracts hordes of visitors including honeymooners out to enjoy its offerings from the charming Sentosa Islands to the fabulous shopping area of Orchard Bay. With today’s honeymooners consisting of a group that’s older, well-traveled and discerning often looking for experiences as well as interactions with the locals, Singapore offers a good compromise of a modern and romantic city with an authentic flavor.


Make an itinerary for a flawless experience

Before booking your tickets, remember that Singapore is a tropical destination with a matching tropical climate. It is mostly hot and humid. Therefore, dress accordingly sticking to natural fabrics and neutral colours that will keep you cool. Don’t forget appropriate gear for adventure travel including sturdy shoes for walking and a rucksack to carry stuff such as a bottle of water, sunscreen, and other personal stuff while sightseeing.

Once you decide on your dates and how long you’re going to stay, discuss the activities you would like to do. As it is not possible to see everything in Singapore given your limited time, it’s important to narrow down attractions. Why not surprise your loved one with a pass that gives you instant access to the top Singapore attractions? You can even make a specific itinerary using a destination pass. Not only are you saving time but also money that you could spend on other activities.


Couples activities that you can do

Singapore offers many activities for couples on their honeymoon. Do the scenic Changi Point coastal walk and watch a magnificent sunset. Join a river cruise and see important landmarks such as the Marina Bay and Clarke Quay. You can also book a chartered cruise for some quality time with your new spouse. If you love the beach, head to beautiful Sentosa. Swim, sunbathe or chill out in a whirlpool bath.

The Henderson Waves Bridge should not be missed. Set amidst the mountains of Singapore, the wave-shaped bridge spanning 36 meters connects Mount Faber Park to Telok Blangah Hill Park. Take a romantic walk and relish the gorgeous views of the city and the ocean. At night, treat your spouse to sky dining at Jewel Box. Before going home, renew your love for each other at the Yueh Hai Ching Temple. Known as the ‘Temple of Love’, visitors who offer prayers to the Elder of Moon Deity can have their wishes granted.

'The Lion City' of Singapore is a superb honeymoon destination boasting of a wide range of activities that newlyweds can do. Whether you’re adventure hiking in lush parks or sampling delicious street food, planning your honeymoon in Singapore is essential to avoid stress and save money.
