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's 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 and rooftops with aview – we've put all of the possible spots for some make out action in Singapore. Time to dial up the romance, baby.

Fort Canning Park

icon-location-pin 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.

The Learning Forest

icon-location-pin 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 6-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.

Ann Siang Hill Park

icon-location-pin Tanjong Pagar

Telok Ayer just illuminates romantic vibes. Heritage shophouses, al fresco dining, a liitle 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.

Esplanade Theatres on the Bay

Esplanade roof terrace

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.

Rooftop of Bras Basah Complex

icon-location-pin 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.

Keppel Island Park

A waterside outlet of Prive and a posh marina fill one end of this private-but-accessible- to-the-public island, but the rest of Pulau Keppel is all lapping waves and green views of Sentosa. Bring a mat and park yourselves on the red-bricked boardwalks on the south side of the island, and fantasise about retiring on one of those yachts you see slicing through the water. Even if no one's by your side (aww…), it's worth a visit for some alone time.

Henderson Waves

icon-location-pin 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.

Attractions, Beaches

Southernmost Point of Continental Asia

icon-location-pin Central

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.

Clemenceau Ave North. 

Shopping, Shopping centres

Orchard Central

icon-location-pin Orchard

Say what you will about Orchard Central's odd layout, that roof garden is a nice escape from the bustle of the city's consumer-crazy artery below. Besides the many sculptures to get inspiration from, the thick foliage flanking glass windows can provide cover even for the headiest of suck face.

Level 11 Orchard Central, 181 Orchard Rd.

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 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.

Things to do

Changi Boardwalk

icon-location-pin 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.

Along Nicoll Dr and Changi Coast Rd.

Yishun Nature Park

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. 

At the end of Yishun Ave 1.

In your car

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