When you think of date night, dinner and a movie are the first things that come to mind. But you don’t always have to stick to doing the same old combo every week (not that there’s anything wrong with that!).
Singapore is full of exciting date activities that can help you break away from monotony. From relaxing spas to making a mess with paints, there’s something in Singapore for every couple.
Here are a few ideas for your next date.
The Night Owl Couple 🦉
Nothing screams romantic like laying next to your love under a gorgeous blanket of stars. It’s also the perfect backdrop to talk about your dreams together.
Kickstart your date with a digital planetarium live show at The Singapore Science Centre Observatory, then make your way to The Observatory for a romantic stargazing session.
📍Science Centre Singapore, 15 Science Centre Road, Singapore 609081
The Instagram Couple 📸
Want some snazzy, professional-looking photos of you and your bae? Flash your million-dollar smile and save your favourite Pinterest poses for a photoshoot at Self-Photo Studio, where you can snap your own photos with professional equipment and a clicker.
P.S. Nobody will be there to judge your awkward poses. 🙈
📍277 Orchard Road, Orchard Gateway, Singapore 238858
The Head in the Clouds Couple ☁️
Literally. Savour an exquisite 4-course Japanese spread in a private cable car cabin for two, at Mount Faber Leisure. The menu is inspired by different regions of Japan, like Okinawa and Hokkaido.
Soar across Singapore’s dazzling night sky as you enjoy a romantic dinner with your beau.
📍109 Mount Faber Rd, Mount Faber Peak, Singapore 099203
The Throwback Couple 🛼
Throwback to the groovy 70s as you take your date on a disco roller skating night out at Hi Roller Singapore. Impress your date with your suave skating skills, or (let’s be honest) falling over skills.
📍 1 Pasir Ris Cl, Level 5 E!Hub @ Downtown East, Singapore 519599
The Messy Couple 🎨
Want to let loose, make a mess, and not have to clean up after yourself for once? You and your partner will have full permission to do it artistically at Splat Paint House.
Create your unique masterpiece with Singapore’s only splatter paint studio, where you can shoot paint with water guns, throw paint, pop balloons filled with paint, and fling paint brushes!

The Getaway Couple 💆💆♂️
We get it. Life is busy. Turn off your phone, slow down and unwind in a couple spa session together with your other half. Not only can it do wonders for your mind and body, but it’s also the perfect way to get to know your partner on a deeper level.
