Thinking of where to go this Valentine’s, but don’t want to travel out of the country just for the weekends? Look no further as we have come up with the perfect cheat-sheet for all you guys out there who are panicking about where to bring their ladies to this V-Day!
1. Hotel Jen Tanglin
You be more than happy to know that there’s free unrestricted Wi-Fi for you to use, no more worrying over whether you’re going to exceed the minuscule amount of data paid at exorbitant amounts like most other hotels.
Hotel Jen Tanglin is offering a Valentine’s Staycation Package for all you lovebirds out there, only available from 13 – 14 Feb 2016. Upon arrival you’ll get customised couple “name card” and artisanal loaf, after which you could head on down for some “Jenerous” Weekend Brunch available from 6.30am till 12 noon. Feel revitalised and rejuvenated for a romantic night as you get to choose from a range of personalised treatments and services for you and your lady, from spa and relaxing massages to nail services, there’s bound to be something suited for you! There’ll also be free flow champagne and live oyster bar from 5pm till 7.30pm, I’m sure you wouldn’t even need to have dinner afterwards. With 24 hour access, you could hang out at the Club Lounge afterwards, why not try playing a game of each other’s favourites or their pet peeves?
Just a random trivia fact, WongFu Production actually stayed at the same hotel when they came over to Singapore for their Everything Before Us Tour. Thought it might be something cool to know for WongFu fans that you’re staying in the very same hotel that they were in!
Other than its reception desk that looks like an exact scene from a Hong Kong mafia show, Porcelain Hotel JL Asia is located in the rich-heritage area of Chinatown. With that, the overall design of the hotel incorporates Chinese elements with its unique porcelain designs. I don’t know about you but I’ve always been intrigued and mesmerised by the intricate designs during the China’s Dynasty periods.
If you’re someone like me who has always been fascinated with the history of places; how Chinatown has become what it is today, why not take a 2 min walk down to Chinatown Heritage Centre for a Multimedia Guided Tour (Cost: S$15). You get to explore the galleries at your own leisure and pace, experience and see how life was like before the existence of HDB flats.
If you want to experience something else more authentic and present, why not head down to Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, its majestic exterior inspired from the Tang Dynasty makes you feel like you’re not in Singapore, but rather an ancient temple in China (or maybe it’s just me, haha). It is alleged that the temple houses a tooth from Siddharta Gautama, the founder of Buddhism, hence the name Buddha Tooth Relice Temple. You’ll be able to see devotees chanting in the large hall on the ground level, a surreal but interesting cultural experience to witness.
Have a Rendezvous Weekend Getaway this Valentine’s at Rendezvous Hotel Singapore.
Indulge yourselves with a massage treatment followed by some drinks, which by the way there’s free-flow of cocktails and canapés in the evening, together with a brilliant city view.
Situated within walking distance to the National Museum of Singapore and Singapore Art Museum, why not take this opportunity to release your artistic side and appreciate the ongoing exhibitions. If that’s not your cup of tea and your girl wants to do some shopping, you could always hop on to Plaza Singapura or get some cheap deals at Bugist Street. After which, you could use your 2 complementary movie tickets from Rendezvous Hotel at GV to catch a late night movie. What better idea than to have practically the entire movie theater to yourselves, that is if there aren’t other lovey-dovey couples who are doing the same there.
