If you two love birds are 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 him/her how to cycle too, if he/she don’t know how!
It’s highly recommended going on a weekday night though to avoid the family crowd.

4) Take a Soak at Sembawang Hot Springs
Did you know that the bottled water you’re holding in your hands may have originated from Sembawang Hot Springs? The only natural hot spring on mainland Singapore, its water has been bottled commercially by Fraser and Neave (F&N) under the local name Seletaris.
The well is located inside a red-brick enclosure, and its geothermal heat can already be felt from outside the building. Believed to have healing powers, it is a popular spot for people to soak their tired feet … and to eat hard-boiled eggs cooked with steaming hot spring water! Be sure to come in the morning, raw eggs and toast in tow, and enjoy your very own Singaporean breakfast of kaya toast with soft-boiled eggs.
