Dates with a difference: Mix business with romance on your next trip to Singapore

Feb 29,2016

It’s time be romantic and creative the next time your company requests you to travel to Singapore for a meeting. Plus your better half will be in for a pleasant surprise when you invite her along.

Here’s a list of activities you can both enjoy doing together.

Clothes maketh couple

It’s common to get dressed up for date night, but why not do it together on this occasion? Take her shopping at one of the popular and reputed fashion retailers like Robinsons, Topshop and Club 21 which already offer personal shopping services. And if you’re concerned about lugging too much around, it’s good to remember that the Copthorne King’s Hotel Singapore is located conveniently within the CBD near these stores.

If you both are into the art scene, she will love this unconventional plan! Both of you can head down to one of Singapore’s myriad art galleries for an unforgettable time absorbing the art, and later at one of the café’s or restaurants on premise, where you can spend some quality time, far from the crowds. Our favourites are the National Gallery Singapore and the Singapore Art Museum.

For the active couple that prefers an alternative kind of date, there are sporty ways to connect with one another. Plus, a study released by JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) on Mar 2015 found that exercising with your partner improved your odds of losing weight, quitting smoking and sticking with an exercise plan.
So why not sign up for a customised duo workout and take your relationship to the next level?

Dance the night away

After your done with your business meetings during the day, why not head to one of Singapore’s many pulsating dance clubs. The latest hip and happening one’s include Bang Bang and of course the cult club Zouk, which brings down many world class acts like Armin Van Buuren. Also check to see if any epic music festivals like Ultra 2016 are coming up anytime around your business trip.

Outdoor concerts, anyone?

Recently these have been all the rage with plenty to choose from on a Saturday, Sunday or public holiday afternoon, like the one’s at Botanic Gardens or heading up to Kult Kafe’s Sunday on the hill.

Take a hike with her

Often forgotten is the fact that Singapore is one of the only city’s in the world blessed with rain forests within the city. Head to one of the reservoirs like MacRitchie or Bedok for a walk, kayaking or to simply take in a glorious sunset. Remember to bring a bottle of wine for the latter. The perfect way to mix business with pleasure
