Get Valentine's Day right this year! Check out this cheat sheet if you're way behind...
Don’t panic; we’ve got your back. Whether it’s your first Valentine’s Day together, or you’re racking your brains trying to figure out how to one up last year’s date, or (it’s okay) trying to get away with as little cheesy romance as possible, our guide will help get you through Valentine’s Day in Singapore in one piece…
DO buy flowers
Do yourself a favour and order your flower delivery and chocolates at least a week in advance (you should be ordering it as soon as you read this!), so you’re not wasting the day scrambling to find a beautiful bunch.
You can’t go wrong with the classic red lip. You’ll want your hair and skin to be on point too – book a last-minute facial and a lunchtime blowout. And if you really want to feel smooth and sexy, free the fuzz at these top spots for hair removal.
Bring out your A-Team
Should your evening plans culminate in the horizontal tango, make sure you’ve picked out something elegantly scant from our favourite lingerie stores (and maybe even a little battery-operated backup) to spice things up in the bedroom.
Where to eat
The quintessential Valentine’s dinner date might seem like a cliché, but we’ve sussed out a couple of romantic restaurants so you don’t screw it up this year. All this doesn’t have to burn a huge hole in your wallet, especially since we’ve got a great variety, including high tea at The Summerhouse and a hearty, seafood feast at Bayswater Kitchen.
Think a classic dinner date is a little too vanilla? Knock off work early if you can, and do a sunset trek at these walking trails. Better yet, if you’ve got the day off, make it an adrenaline-fuelled day with water sports activities or sweat it out together over a game of sport.
Need more inspo? We’ve picked the best date ideas in this list of romantic things to do, which includes museums, secluded sunrise spots and swanky rooftop bars. Fancy a dip instead? Slip into your swimwear and dive right into our list of the sexiest swimming pools in Singapore.
Vacays and staycays
Lucky for you, Valentine’s Day falls on the same week as the long Chinese New Year weekend. Here’s your excuse to go on a short retreat in Southeast Asia – sip on sunset tipples on Bali’s beaches, go on a temple trail in Angkor Wat, or visit the luscious rainforests of Sarawak.
If you don’t have time for a full trip, wine and dine in private with a staycay at one of these stylish Singapore hotels.
Single in Singapore?
There are more unattached adults in Singapore than ever before, so the only real problem is wading through the sea of singles to find that somebody. If you’re game, online dating or using a dating app is pretty industry standard now, so take a gander at this list of our favourite dating apps and put yourself out there! Not your thing? We’ve still got loads of other solo activity ideas so you won’t be stuck at home sobbing into your chocolates (our pick’s gotta be these anti-Valentine’s parties).
