The quietest spots in Singapore to get your tongue tangle on

Making out can be hard to do, especially in a city that never sleeps like Singapore. The streets are too bright, buildings are too close together and there are always people around – privacy is truly a luxury in Singapore. So what happens when you need to express your love (and lust)? 

Don't you worry, finding the perfect spot in Singapore for a little snog sesh is possible. Secret parks, under dark bridges, rooftops with a view and even at sunset in Punggol – we've put all of the possible spots for some make out action in Singapore. Time to dial up the romance, baby.

  • Things to do
  • Punggol

Warm lighting, purplish-pink skies, the evening breeze: sunset is a mood. A mood for love that is. Need somewhere super private with beautiful views? Make your way to Punggol where the rustic charms of Coney Island await you. You don't even need to be the outdoorsy sort or go on a trek or anything – near the entrance of the park, you can find some steps leading to the sea. Yup, that's your spot for making out. Wait till the skies start showing off its full technicolour glory then lean in for a snog. Take your time but not too much – the park is locked up promptly at 7pm.

  • Kent Ridge

Let's face it, love is crazy. Sometimes it's smooth sailing, sometimes it's like hell. Ten Courts of Hell kinda hell. If you're both feeling a bit goofy, live out your main character dreams at this fascinating park. Choose from the many make out spots here – from the pagoda at the pond, as you make your way towards the Samsara stage of hell, under this magnificent diorama depicting a scene from the Eight Immortals Cross the Sea. As you kiss imagine the waves crashing around you as the dragon king of the East Sea joins the battles between the eight immortals and the soldiers of the East Sea. Epic.

Sandwiched between two national monuments, the Thian Hock Keng temple and Nagore Durgha Shrine, Telok Ayer Green sits hidden from the usually busy main streets. If you need to steal a kiss or two with your finance fella (who works in the CBD), here's a good spot to meet for a quick breather (or lack of because you're too busy necking). Need another CBD location? Why not try...

Telok Ayer Park

Who knew Telok Ayer would be so generous with clandestine spots for a cheeky snog. With lush plants, trees and even swings, this makes for a cute spot for a lunch date. Take away your lunches from the nearest Amoy Street Food Centre, chope a swingset with your partner for a lunch and catchy up – and before you head off to your respective offices, sneak a quick peck. We won't recommend full-on snogging because you might just bump into your boss and colleagues.

Shiseido Forest at Jewel Changi Airport
  • Property
  • Changi 

Escape the busy airport and into a lush green sanctuary that is the Shiseido Forest Valley. Accessible from every level, the tranquil retreat is also the best place to stare in awe of the HSBC Rain Vortex, the largest indoor waterfall in the world – and the crown jewel of well, Jewel Changi Airport. There's no denying that it makes a romantic backdrop for that sweet, sweet smooch.

  • Singapore

Siloso Beach amps up the romance with a whole new light with a new immersive light and sound show, Magical Shores. Taking centre stage are two islets across the waters, illuminated with lights, dreamy fog, and tranquil music. Feel the sand in your toes and lip-lock at this multi-sensory experience that welcomes both of you to interact with light art on the sandy beach, inspired by diverse elements ranging from water flow to marine creatures.

  • Things to do
  • Jurong East

Surround yourself with the flora and fauna of this national – and natural – treasure in the west. With plenty of foliage, the Gardens makes it a good spot for privacy – and we're not talking about hiding in the bushes either. Steal a kiss on the bridge, cosy up at the benches by the waters or share a hammock overlooking the pagodas. Otherwise, get lost in love in the dreamy lalang fields.

  • Things to do
  • City Hall

While most will appreciate the history of this modest-sized mound in the heart of the business district, the lovers will appreciate the discretion it provides with its lush foliage, shady trees, and wooden benches at lookout points in the park. Climb to the highest point of Fort Canning with your lover and pick a seat under giant ancient trees while you have a long meaningful conversation, that might lead to some snogging.

  • Tanglin

So you like hiking, but don't want to rough it out too much on a romantic date. We get it – it's important to look good on dates. Lucky there's the Learning Forest located in the Botanic Gardens, designed to integrate with the existing six-hectare rainforest to form an enlarged forest habitat with well-made paths and walking trails so you don't really have to sweat it out that much. Imagine this, strolling on the boardwalk and looking up at ancient trees while stealing kisses. Ah, Mother Nature gives its blessings. 

  • Things to do
  • Tanjong Pagar

Telok Ayer just illuminates romantic vibes. Heritage shophouses, al fresco dining, a little bit of history and new age energy, it's the perfect place for a date. After dinner and drinks at one of the bars along Amoy Street or Club Street, head to the semi-deserted Ann Siang Hill Park and park yourself in the lush foliage for a romantic snog sesh. Be warned though: people do walk past from time to time in the evening but so it's best if you keep it PG.

  • Music
  • City Hall

All you cultured lovebirds would appreciate this one. Post-concert or theatre performance might leave you on a high and you might want to prolong the night. Maybe down some beers or share a bottle of wine and head to the rooftop. On quiet nights sit on the manicured lawns or find refuge under the small shade trees as you lock lips against the Marina Bay skyline.

  • Things to do
  • City Hall

For a building that's smack in the middle of town, Bras Basah Complex is surprisingly sleepy. That's if you hike up to the rooftop (you gotta take the stairs) at night. You'll find yourself at the void deck-ish area of an ageing HDB estate, but head to the corner facing the National Library – there's a small playground there that we've honestly never seen being used by kids at night – and prying eyes can't find you.

  • Sport and fitness
  • Walking
  • Bukit Merah

At 36m above Henderson Road, this highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore guarantees you an escape from the hustle and bustle of traffic. The dimly lit structure has hidden recesses and shell-like ridges where you can hide away from other couples for your slice of privacy. Bonus: Because of its height, it does get windy at night which makes being outdoor in our humidity slightly bearable.

Yes, Sentosa's grand claims that those two wooden towers on a man-made island, off an island that's off the island off Malaysia, is literally the 'Southernmost Point of Continental Asia'. But let’s not fuss over the details. What you're really interested in is that suspension bridge that she’ll squeak her way across, and three floors on which to space yourself and the next couple out.

The CTE tunnel overpass off Emerald Hill

Okay, this one's tough to get to. But we promise it's worth it. First, walk down Emerald Hill until you hit Clemenceau Avenue. Turn right. To your right, you'll see trees blocking your view of the CTE. You're now on the overpass. And there's a way to get to the edge of it, dangle your legs and watch the cars whiz by under you: scuttle to the rightmost edge of the clearing and find a small opening through. Warning: this can be pretty dangerous.

Jurong Hill

Jurong Hill

Bet you didn't know there's a hill in Jurong. But there is and come nightfall, it's (mostly) secluded. There's a park right at the top, creatively named Jurong Hill Park, and a look-out tower where you can get an aerial view of Jurong. In the day, you might bump into an adventurous couple shooting their wedding photos but in the evening, you're all set. In case it isn't obvious enough, you'll need to drive up because it's not really accessible by public transport.

Changi Boardwalk
  • Things to do
  • Changi 

Walk from the direction of Changi Boardwalk and you'll find a small wooden hut. You can stop there and get comfy or continue walking on where you'll find a patch of long grass to hide out in. Because it's the most eastern point in Singapore, you'll also catch a brilliant view of the sunrise.

Yishun Dam

Only accessible by car, Yishun Dam is a somewhat secluded yet somewhat popular spot when it's dark outside. Walk along the dam to the furthest spot (you might past by a few other couples hoping to get their share of quiet time together) and pray that no one else sits too close by. On clear nights, it's great for some stargazing too.

Well, technically anywhere you can park your car is a make out spot. Cheers to resourcefulness!
