As cheesy as it sounds, spending time with your significant other could be the greatest Valentine’s Day gift to them (though if she says she doesn’t want flowers, she actually does want them).
If you aren’t sure where you can bring your other half for Valentine’s Day, fret not! Read on to find out the places where you can have romance, fun and good food this V-day and the coming weekend!
Tip for V-Day: Bring your date around in a cool limo ride, available on the CDG Zig App.
Valentine’s Day Activities
1. Singapore Zoo
Have an otterly-fun time at the Singapore Zoo admiring the wondrous wildlife such as penguins and lions. Don’t forget to snag a seat for the various live shows, and book a feeding session with the giraffes and elephants.
Nothing beats an exciting, interactive experience for a perfect couple’s bonding time!
P.S. Try going to the Night Safari too. It creates an opportunity to hold your partner’s hand in the dark! Make use of their Valentine’s Day promo here.

Another great Valentine’s Day idea is going on a breezy romantic bike ride along Coney Island Park.
Peddle away amidst the lush greenery and tranquil waters. Bring along your binoculars – there are at least 80 bird species to be spotted, from parakeets to the Oriental Magpie-robins and more!
P.S. You might be tempted to pick some pretty flowers for your partner, but refrain from doing so. Keep the precious memories of your date by capturing a few good shots of the flora and fauna instead!
