2. Eco-attractions

Singapore is often referred to as a ‘green city’, with the reputation of being one of the cleanest in the world. The Botanical Gardens and Gardens by the Bay are two major must-see green attractions for couples on a romantic getaway in Singapore. The Singapore Botanic Gardens, a UNESCO site, are right in the heart of the city, developed with a three-core concept of heritage, tourism and education. There are a number of cafés and restaurants on site where you can stop with your sweetheart for a cup of coffee after a wander through the leafy pathways. 

The Gardens by the Bay are indeed gardens by the bay, but are far more impressive than their name lets on. Here you will find the Flower Dome, a spectacular climate-controlled dome hosting ever-changing flower displays. The Cloud Forest is another larger-than-life attraction where you can take in mountain views and discover the diverse vegetation that exists in high-altitude areas. There is also a waterfall inside the Cloud Forest, where you can refresh yourselves in the mist. Perhaps the most iconic attraction of the Gardens by the Bay is the Supertree Grove, which are 25 to 50 metre tall vertical gardens that provide shade in the day and a spectacular light display by night. The Gardens by the Bay also have free admission for seniors – how lovely.
