Everything about Marina Bay screams opulence. The kind that courts the senses even if only for a short while. The 3.5 km Waterfront Promenade offers breathtaking views of the Marina reservoir and the skyline, especially at dusk. Whether you spend the evening taking a romantic stroll along the boardwalk or treating yourselves at one of the open cafes, you’ll be surprised at how much time you can while away here. For an unmatched view of the city, head to the Sand SkyPark Observation Deck high up above the 57 storeys of Marina Bay Sands. It looks out over the reservoir and the financial district on one side and Gardens by the Bay and Singapore’s harbor on the other. Go there after 5pm, when it’s a little cooler. When you have finally had your fill of wandering about hand in hand, enjoy the setting sun at the famous Ku De Ta, a stunning rooftop bar right, while downing its signature cocktail.
Singapore Botanic Gardens

It includes National Orchid Garden, Rainforest, Evolution Garden, Ginger Garden, Botany Centre and Tanglin Gate, Jacob Ballas Children's Garden.
There are some really picturesque nature trails from MacRitchie Reservoir Park to the HSBC TreeTop Walk suspension bridge that connects Bukit Pierce and Bukit Kalang (the two highest points at Mac Ritcheie), which are definitely worth your while (when the weather’s right). The trails meander through black forests and past unusual wildlife-we caught a glimpse of the bright blue baby snake-ending at the 25m-high suspension bridge. There are maps and directions posted everywhere, so whichever trail you choose, you won’t get lost. If you need a breather, stop at the Visitor Centre about 3km shy of the suspension bridge. We recommend Route 3, a 10 km walk starting from the park, and Route 6, a 7 km trek that starts from Venus Drive car park.
