Fancy a picnic? 4 Singapore spots for your next first date
We know planning dates can be hard. Keep it casual with coffee, grab drinks after work, plan a fancy dinner? Sometimes the key is to shake things up and try something new! A way you can do that while still keeping your date simple? A picnic.
And the thing is, you don’t have to be some amazing chef who packs a whole spread for you and your date – just grab your favorite to-go orders from a place nearby! It’s pretty easy with foodpanda pick-up, even if you’re debating until the last minute about where to grab food. It’ll be ready in as fast as 10 minutes. And bonus, you don’t have to wait around in long lines, filling the time with small talk. Just pop in, grab your orders, and head out to your spot for a romantic picnic.
But where to go? We did the work for you and rounded up four picturesque spots in Singapore that make for a great picnic date with someone new.
Looking for something scenic? This spot has views of the bayfront, Gardens by the Bay, and Marina Bay Sands – perfect for a sunset picnic. And bonus, the breeze means it’s a popular spot for kite fliers, adding even more to your date backdrop. Pop over to Tim Ho Wan at Marina Bay Sands before heading there to grab some to-go pork puns or dumplings, and maybe even something sweet to split.
Changi Bay PCN
The views of Changi Bay are a great talking point when getting to know someone new. Pick up some dinner at Andes by Astons in Changi Village, pack a blanket, and plan to park at the Changi Beach car park – from there, it’s only about a five-minute walk! And if you’re not too full after eating, you can walk even farther to Changi Bay Point.
Keppel Marina East Desalination Plant
In the mood for a spot that’s less crowded? This one’s a little off the beaten path, but you’ll have skyline views that make for a great sunset date. Note that there isn’t public parking here, so you’ll have to park and walk for your picnic – the nearest car park is Fort Road. Pick up a pizza from nearby Brewerkz for a feast. Don’t forget to debate your favorite toppings.
Marina South Pier
Marina South Pier isn’t just for catching a ferry to St. John’s Island, it’s also a picturesque spot to chill out with someone new. Harry’s at Marina Link Bay Mall is close by and has platters made for sharing. Place a pick-up order on the way there so you can grab and go. Don’t forget a blanket, and watch the ships together.
