  • For The Nature Lovers

There’s nothing you love better than to be outdoors, feeling the cool breeze and warm sun on your face and the ground beneath your feet…

Just For Two

Pre-order a charming picnic basket set from Food For Thought (FFT) at the Singapore Botanic Gardens for a relaxing date in the park grounds. Picnic sets, which are customizable to your preferences, include sandwiches, sides, sweets and drinks, a picnic mat, disposable cutlery and a trash bag for your convenience! Choose your sweet spot in the park, put your favourite album on loop, and while the afternoon away with a leisurely lunch/tea and happy conversations.

For the family

Assemble a simple picnic basket that everyone can enjoy, that the kids can help prepare. Think cheese sandwiches, hard-boiled eggs, apples and fruit juice! Then head on down to the East Coast Park for some meaningful and fun sand-play at Castle Beach! All you need to do is purchase a basic sandcastle building kit ($30), which you later get to take home with you. Enjoy a breezy day out building the sandcastles of your dream, then end it off with a well-deserved picnic on the beach.

Castle Beach is a social enterprise that promotes family bonding through sandcastle building. The company also reaches out to children from underprivileged backgrounds, high-risk families and physically challenged conditions.

  • For The Adventure Seekers

Just For Two
Experience the thrill of sky-diving, without actually jumping off a plane! iFly Singapore is the world’s first and largest wind-tunnel, which allows for indoor skydiving under controlled conditions. Since it’s also located at the same premise, hop over to Imbiah Lookout and take the leap of faith at MegaZip Adventure Park. Try this with your loved one – it’s guaranteed to be an exhilarating date!

You can sign up as a couple, or with a group of friends. Make it a double date, or even a triple date, and feel the adrenalin rush together!

For the family
If you’d like to make it a family affair, why not tackle the Forest Adventure Tree Top Kids Course at Bedok Reservoir Park together? As its name suggests, you will get to experience a tree top adventure with obstacles to be overcome (bridges, trapezes, logs) and the thrill of zip-lining over the reservoir!

The Kids Course is specially designed for children aged 5 to 10 (minimum height 1.1m). Children will be attached to an on-going safety line anytime they are above ground level, so they can swing in the trees in safety. There is only supervision from the ground, so parents are strongly encouraged to accompany their child on the course, especially if they are below 6yo. We can’t think of a better way to encourage your child to take a step of faith than to model it for them!

This one really stumped us! It’s quite an impossible feat to have a romantic evening out with a little one in tow. But wait until your little darling slips into dreamland, light a few candles and enjoy the night ahead…
