So you’re thinking of popping the question, but you’re having a hard time deciding on the best place to ask your beloved to be with you forever. Whether you want to go for a quiet, private proposal or splurge all out, here are some ideas to help you start planning the perfect proposal in Singapore that will make your partner swoon.

For sunset views

Changi Point Coastal Walk

Head out to the Changi Point Coastal Walk to escape the city and its crowds. Time your walk with the sunset and head out to the pier for a proposal under the setting sun. After your loved one (hopefully!) says yes, celebrate in one of the many great restaurants in Changi Point.

Pulau Ubin

Another great location for privacy and beautiful sunsets is Pulau Ubin. Depending on what you both love to do, some good options could be the long jetty that juts out as part of the Chek Jawa Wetlands, or you could climb to the top of the nearby Jejawi Tower for spectacular views of the forest canopy and the ocean.

On the beach

Lazarus Island

If you’re hoping to avoid the crowds, screaming children and the possibility of the ferry being full in the first place, this is a proposal you want to plan for during the week, if possible. Maybe a cheeky day when you both work from home? One of Singapore’s best-kept secrets, Lazarus Island offers a stunning crescent beach and crystal clear waters and is one of the only places in Singapore that has not seen any commercial development.

For city views

Henderson Waves

This locale is perfect if your partner doesn’t mind going for an afternoon hike every once in a while. Pick a lovely day, pack a delicious picnic (don’t forget the champagne!) and choose a spot along the bridge that offers a good view. It is a popular place for couples, though, so don’t expect much in the way of privacy.

Marina Barrage

Marina Barrage is the only location in the city where you can see the Singapore Flyer, the Marina Bay Sands complex, Gardens by the Bay and the skyline of Singapore’s Central Business District, making it an ideal place to take a partner who loves photography. Grab a tripod and time your proposal so that you can take some celebratory shots with perfect lighting and a stunning background.

Esplanade Rooftop

Not many people are aware of the manicured landscape on top of the Esplanade Theatres. Complete with small bushes and benches, it gives the feeling of being in a lush park within the city. After you pop the question, make your way to Makansutra for a delicious meal, or rent the roof terrace for a secret engagement party with all of your friends.

The tallest alfresco bar in the world, located on the top floor of 1-Altitude, is guaranteed to impress your partner. With views overlooking the city, including the only time you can be looking down on the boat atop Marina Bay Sands, the 63rd-floor alfresco bar offers one of the best sunset – and city – views in Singapore.

Angie's Oyster Bar, Singapore

For the financially conscientious couple who still wants to do something fancy, Angie’s Oyster Bar is a perfect location for a proposal. Sitting on the 45th floor of 50 Raffles Place, book a window-side table and enjoy views of the bay as you get ready to pop the big question. Best of all, Angie’s runs oyster promos every weekday from 6–8 pm.

Escape the city

This Dempsey Hill restaurant oozes old colonial charm. Dempsey Hill itself feels like a hidden paradise, tucked in a forest away from the city. The restaurant, The White Rabbit, is located in a modernised 1930s chapel, and with its apex roof and beautiful stained-glass windows, it’s no surprise that this is becoming a popular wedding venue. After your proposal, head out to The Rabbit Hole, Singapore’s only dedicated gin garden bar, for a celebratory cocktail or two.

The ultimate splurge

Singapore Flyer, Singapore

One of the attractions that make up Singapore’s iconic skyline, you can book a romantic four-course meal for two and enjoy an hour floating over the city on the Singapore Flyer. The Premium Sky Dining package comes in at $350, but unfortunately, you will be sharing your sky capsule with other people. The Premium Sky Dining package, which includes a bottle of champagne and a bouquet of roses, as well as the meal, will set you back a cool $2100.
