Apart from the crowd anticipating “Spectra”, Marina Bay is generally quieter during the night. The pathway towards The Float @ Marina Bay in particular, is a popular spot among couples who want a quiet(er) place for date night.

Besides sitting and chilling by the serene river while gazing at the breathtaking Singapore skyline, you can also choose to stroll towards the Helix Bridge. There’s just something strangely therapeutic about walking along the river. Having your significant other by your side will amplify that feeling.

Maybe stargazing isn’t enough and you want to get closer to the stars. Enjoy a bird’s eye view of Singapore’s magnificent night scenery at The [email protected] For $6, you’re granted access to the top floor of the majestic 50-story residential building, in the heart of the city.

If you’re a fan of simply chilling during a breezy evening and enjoying the sights that the city has to offer, this is the place for you. It’s great for watching sunsets with your significant other, while enjoying the (rare) cool breeze. If you’re lucky, you may even be able to catch the fireworks at USS or MBS!

As there are limited shelters there, it’s recommended that you bring an umbrella in case it rains.

Why is TikTok so popular? Well, you’ll be surprised to know that it has nothing to do with its cringe content. Here’s the real reason: (Also remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel!)

Want to still experience the beautiful night view but at zero cost? Sit among greenery and engage in a heart-to-heart talk at the Esplanade Roof Terrace. Or take photos, if you’re the typical Instagram couple — we’ve heard that there are spaces for perfect photo opportunities.

It’s also a great place for you to plan a surprise picnic! You could grab a dinner to-go and head there for a romantic dinner (without the candlelight). But honestly, who needs candlelight if you’re under a sky full of stars?

Address: 8 Raffles Avenue, S(039802)
Opening Hours: Daily, 10am – 9pm

5. Rail Corridor

No, this isn’t a horror special. Quite the opposite actually, despite its name. Ever wondered what a glow-in-the-dark path looks like? Head down to Railway Corridor, behind the Downtown Line Bukit Panjang MRT Station, to see the magic unfold. It’s part of a test track by the URA, in a bid to discover safer path materials for recreational trails.

Although you may not have Aladdin’s flying carpet, you can still experience a magical, “shining, shimmering, splendid” date night while walking along the glittery path. It’s one of the most quiet places in Singapore, given that it’s located in a relatively less populated neighbourhood.

Those who’ve been there have mentioned that the lights are more obvious in photographs (with long exposure – if you’re a camera geek). For the best experience, bring your trusty camera along for a late night photoshoot to remember the day by!

LED lights would be good too, to bring out the extra glow. You might even want to bring fairy lights, so you’re equipped with sufficient photoshoot materials, just in case the glow is too faint to be captured on camera.

Address: Behind Bukit Panjang MRT
Opening Hours: Daily, 24 hours

6. Mount Faber

Known for being the place to enjoy sunsets, Mount Faber is the spot to go to if you want some peace and quiet away from city life. This is great for quality time together while chilling, as you witness the true beauty of nature.

What’s more, it’s plenty of reason to drag yourselves out for some light exercise! Take a walk together along the Southern Ridges to the Henderson Waves bridge. For the stunning sunset, it’ll definitely be worth the trek!

7. Sentosa

When we said ‘quiet places in Singapore’, you probably didn’t think that Sentosa would make the list. Contrary to popular belief, Sentosa is actually pretty serene, especially towards the evening.

Watch the sun go down at the beach or chat at the Sentosa Boardwalk (which promises a really pretty view, especially at night) for the ultimate experience. Board the cable car for a more ‘touristy’ date night. Better still, the it’s connected to Mount Faber (point 8), which has plenty in store for you too!

8. Pulau Ubin

From beautiful quarries to quiet paths, Pulau Ubin can easily be one of the spots where you’ll be undisturbed on a date (really, because who would travel all the way there?). But we’re here to tell you that it’s worth a visit, especially if you want some alone time with your significant other.

As it’s not a popular spot that many would flock to, the island assures that you can spend some quality time together. Especially if the both of you enjoy nature, it’s the best opportunity to spend time without distractions from the city (keep your phones away for the best effect!).

Not a fan of walking? Bicycles are also available for rent, for a romantic cycle around the beautiful island so you can venture further in (stay on the paths though, especially if it’s late, safety’s more important!). We’d recommend visiting the quarries, they’re really a sight to behold!

Get some insect repellant, a torchlight and a portable charger, as they will definitely be your necessities for this trip!

9. Museums

Are you quite the artistic pair? Museums are one of the few quiet places in Singapore and are great for appreciating paintings and sculptures together. They’re also great for photoshoots in front of the art exhibits.

Why not take the chance to drop some art-related pick-up lines too, because when else will you get the chance to do that?

There are plenty of museums to choose from in Singapore – from the Singapore Art Museum, to the National Art Gallery and even the Art Science Museum (which will probably be the most crowded of the lot).

National Gallery
Address: 1 Saint Andrew’s Road, S(178957)
Opening Hours:
Sat – Thurs: 10am – 7pm
Fri: 10am – 9pm

10. Woodlands Waterfront

If you’re a fan of long walks, why not stroll along the longest recreational jetty in Singapore and enjoy the sea breeze? It’s like every other park, but with an added jetty so you can relax on a chair while witnessing the beautiful sunset. You could even set up a fishing rod, and maybe catch a fish or two while chilling.

The open fields are also a great place to have a picnic, or to fly kites. Cycling is also an option – although there are no bicycle rental shops there, you could hop on an oBike and have a leisurely cycle through the park with your significant other. It’s a good opportunity to teach them how to cycle too, if they don’t know how!

We’d recommend going on a weekday night though to avoid the family crowd.

Address: 6A Admiralty Road West, S(759956)
Opening Hours: Daily, 24 Hours

11. Changi Coastal Walk

Maybe you want to experience Woodlands Waterfront but you stay in the East? Changi Coastal Walk is a great alternative! With 6 distinct sections that make up the entire coastal walk, you can be assured that you’ll always have something to do.

Stroll through the various trails, be it through forests (Cliff Walk) or above the sea (Kelong Walk). Kelong Walk is also a popular fishing spot. Each pathway promises a whole new experience. If you’re game, you could even head to Changi Village (it’s an hour’s walk away), known for plenty of good and affordable food options!

Address: 6 Changi Village Road, S(509907)
Opening Hours: Daily, 24 Hours

12. Your Neighbourhood

This is probably the last place that will come to mind. Neighbourhoods may or may not be quiet, depending on the time of day but they are worth noting as a low-cost alternative. If you stay a distance away from the city, chances are strolls along your estate are bound to be undisturbed.

Explore the area that you’ve been living in and you’re bound to notice something you haven’t, even if you’ve been living there for years. What better way to find out more about your neighbourhood than by strolling and chatting with your significant other.

Neighbourhood parks are also an option. Swinging while laughing about inside jokes between the two of you, doesn’t it sound like a scene out of a classic K-drama?

13. Marina at Keppel Bay

For couples who love going on dates at Instagram-worthy places, Marina at Keppel Bay is definitely a must-go! You could visit the yacht docking area with plenty of picturesque yachts in the background. The nearby Labrador Coastal Walk is also perfect for watching sunsets and taking beautiful pictures.

For artistic shots and a brilliant view, find an empty spot near the Keppel Bay Bridge and watch as it lights up the night sky. The Southern tip of Keppel island is also a good spot for catching the sunset, and even a picnic, while taking in the view.

Opening Hours: Daily, 24 Hours

14. West Coast Park

West Coast Park is a rather well-kept secret and not known by many. Unless you have children or younger siblings, chances are you’ve never been to (or even heard of) this park because it’s filled with playgrounds! As much as it can get crowded during the day on weekends though, it’s very quiet and empty at night.

Besides, playgrounds aren’t the only things you can find there. You can also visit the park to relax as you overlook the view of the waterfront. Grab some food to go from the McDonald’s located at the park itself and enjoy a serene evening by the breakwater!

Address: 27 West Coast Highway Westway, S(117867)
Opening Hours: Daily, 24 hours

This park connector begins at the Tanjong Rhu suspension bridge along Sungei Geylang and stretches all the way to Bay East of Gardens By The Bay. The suspension bridge is quite a sight for sore eyes when it lights up at night.

If you have the time, you can even walk over to Gardens By The Bay where you’ll be offered breathtaking views of the city skyline. The best part is that this is still quite a hidden gem so crowds won’t be a problem!

Address: 50 Tanjong Rhu Place, S(436621)

Marina Barrage is another great date night idea. It’s much quieter on weekdays and weekend nights so privacy and noise levels won’t be an issue. In fact, it can actually get pretty breezy at night! With the cooler weather and an amazing view of the city skyline, this is a must-go for all couples!

Otherwise, if you’d prefer to check out the Marina Barrage in the day, it’s also a good place for a picnic. What’s more, you can even enjoy some kite-flying while you’re there!

The Istana Park is tucked in a corner at Dhoby Ghaut and because of this, people often forget of its existence.

Its lighting was specially designed to enhance the park’s features and structures as well. Drop by this park after a filling dinner for a casual stroll with your partner!

East Coast Park is a beach park located along the south-eastern coast of Singapore. Even though the park can get crowded in some areas, there are still some spots that offer some peace and quiet. Area F in East Coast Park is one such area since it’s located further away from popular attractions like the hawker centre.

Opening Hours: Daily, 24 hours

22. HortPark

It’s also located near Mount Faber Park so you can wander around this entire area and admire the beautiful greenery that it has to offer!

Opening Hours: Daily, 6am – 11pm

At the end of the day though, sometimes you just want to stay in and there’s nothing wrong with that. Nothing beats Netflix and chilling with a box of pizza and good Asian dramas! Staying in is one of the best date night ideas and people sometimes forget the beauty of simply enjoying a day at home doing nothing.

Besides, watching shows together isn’t the only thing you can do together. You can even cook together and enjoy delicious home-cooked meals! Doing activities like this makes for good memories and you might even find out things about your partner that you didn’t know about before.
