5 Must Do Couple Activities in Singapore
After being with your significant other for some time, it’s only natural for a dinner + movie date to lose its spark. But don’t worry, it’s but a natural part of any relationship. To spice up your romance, here are 5 must-do activities for couples in Singapore!
1. Take a Yoga Class Together
Why not improve your flexibility and strength together? Yoga not only builds up your physical capabilities, it also calms the mind, improves overall health and lifts the mood. Apart from spending time with your significant other, you will also get fitter and more connected. Try yoga classes at The Yoga Co. or even follow YouTube videos in the comfort of your own homes. As you become more advanced, try couple yoga poses together. Setting common goals encourages greater communication – which is key to make a relationship work.
2. Picnic at the Botanic Gardens
Make full use of the local UNESCO Heritage Site by having a romantic picnic. Look out for live performances and events on the Singapore Botanic Gardens website for free entertainment. Nothing beats a simple home-cooked meal, especially if you prepared it with your loved one.
Even if you are not a history fanatic, looking at artefacts from the past can certainly be enlightening and enriching. Especially if admission for locals is free at selected exhibits at the National Museum! The National Museum (along with the Peranakan Museum and Asian Civilizations Museum) are known to house Singapore’s most exquisite artefacts. Alternatively, if national museums are too crowded on the weekend, try the MINT Museum of Toys to relive your childhood! MINT is toy museum located along Seah Street with toys that date back to the 1930s from all over the world. Museums are also known to inspire visitors to develop a greater appreciation for today. In fact, couples who museum-hop together will learn to bond with each other over nostalgia.
Whether you are tone-deaf or not, everyone loves to sing. Like Troy and Gabriella from High School Musical, perhaps singing together can reignite the spark. You can even decide on ‘your’ song! Try Teo Heng KTV for jamming sessions at extremely affordable prices. Fret not about embarrassing yourself in front of your significant other if you can’t sing! A relationship is, anyway, about being comfortable and open with each other.
5. Visit the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum… And get a Couple Wax Hand!
Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Singapore offers not only a lot of selfie time with local icons like Phua Chu Kang, but you can enjoy a short boat ride and get a wax hand done! In fact, you can also request for a couple wax hand to symbolize your love and commitment to one another.
