8 Best Places In Singapore To Stargaze And Catch The Lunar Eclipse

lunar eclipse

If you didn’t already know, something big is happening this Saturday, 28 July 2018.

There’s going to be another LUNAR ECLIPSE happening! And not just any typical lunar eclipse.

Set to last 1 hour and 43 minutes from 3.30am to 5.13am Singapore time, this will be the longest lunar eclipse of the century and will be visible from Asia, Australia, Africa and Europe.

However, with Singapore being a well-developed city, our light pollution is intense, so it might be hard to find a good spot to get a good look and photo.

So here are some places that might be dark enough to enjoy the lunar eclipse (a.k.a blood moon) in all its scarlet glory.

1. Seletar Rocket Tower

[caption id="attachment_36095" align="aligncenter" width="1024"]lunar eclipse Image Credit: Flickr Rain Stormz[/caption]

Located in Upper Seletar Reservoir, the Seletar Rocket Tower makes for a great spot to catch the lunar eclipse.

[caption id="attachment_36096" align="aligncenter" width="530"]lunar eclipse Image Credit: NParks[/caption]

The place is mostly secluded and it has 3 carparks a short walk away so it’s still accessible by car. Other than the lunar eclipse, it’s also a great place to catch amazing sunsets and stargaze too.

Address: Along Mandai Road Track 7, off Mandai Road

2. Changi Boardwalk

Changi Boardwalk is one of the more popular spots for stargazing and other astronomy-related pursuits.

[caption id="attachment_1027" align="aligncenter" width="700"]lunar eclipse Image Credit: lunar eclipse Image Credit: NParks[/caption]

Stargazing parties are still being organised and held at Changi Beach.

It’ll be best to bring a party of people if you intend to go there for lunar eclipse because Changi Beach is infamous for being “dirty”, if you know what I mean.

4. Lim Chu Kang Cemetery

Another spot with great views of the moon and stars and a spook factor.

[caption id="attachment_36104" align="aligncenter" width="779"]lunar eclipse Image Credit: lunar eclipse Image Credit: TripAdvisor[/caption]

However, Labrador Nature Reserve comes with its own spooky tales so tread cautiously.

Address: Labrador Villa Road, Singapore 119187

6. Lorong Halus Bridge

The Lorong Halus bridge stretches over the Punggol Waterway and offers amazing views of the sunrise. It’s also great for stargazing and moon-viewing.

The Singapore Botanic Gardens is one of the least light-polluted places in Singapore, along with the Labrador Park Nature Reserve.

Some of these islands are accessible by boat and will make for a nice relaxing day trip. However, pack your own food as most of them don’t have food places. An excuse to have a nice romantic picnic!

There are also lagoons around some of the islands where you and your date can take a dip and chill.

[caption id="attachment_652" align="aligncenter" width="615"] Image Credit: Mirror.co.uk[/caption]

Ah Valentine’s Day.

A day of love, affection, chocolates, and cards. But for some, it’s a day of dilemmas and frustration. Every year, many of us whine about not knowing where to go and what to do. Plans that entail not burning a hole in our pockets or breaking the bank are high on many Singaporeans’ priorities. Lest many also forget to consider, it should also be romantic or we risk incurring the wrath of our other halves.

Alas, no more hassles and no more worries. Don’t let the absence of money spoil this wonderful day. It’s the thought that counts after all right? As Valentine’s Day falls on the 14th, the team in Discover SG has compiled 14 free things that couples can do on this coming Valentine’s Day.

1) Take a Stroll Along Henderson Waves

Who knew the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore would actually be such an idyllic place for romance? Not only does the bridge resemble the undulating shape of a wave, its scrupulously designed shape allows it to have recesses, where pedestrians can observe and take in the natural beauty of their surroundings. To all lovebirds out there, be sure to check this place out at dusk, when the mood is enhanced by luminous lighting and a gorgeous night sky.

2) Appreciate The Arts In Gillman Barracks

Gillman Barracks is the indie and lesser-known home to internationally-celebrated and contemporary art pieces. With 11 different galleries to choose from and exhibitions that change periodically, you don’t have to be an art enthusiast to find something that captures your eye. And with such diversity, there are many insta-worthy spots for couples to get their “sophistication” on!

3) Traipse Around The Garden

Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s futuristic garden, is nothing short of unbelievable at night. With the radiating Supertrees standing stoically nearby and the signature display of lights and sounds that begin at 7.45pm, a walk around this lush and multi-colored wonderland could be one of the best Valentine’s Day ideas ever.

4) Watch a Watershow at Marina Bay Promenade

Known as Wonder Full, Singapore’s premier light and water show is a stunning convergence of light, music, and sound. Impress your girl with this dazzling 15-minute display and witness the water transform into images that tells the tale of the journey of life. As the show begins at 8pm, for best viewing, reach early and ‘chope’ the middle seats for the optimum experience.

Location: 2 Bayfront Avenue, Singapore 018972

5) Stargaze at Tanjong Beach

For a day of tranquility and to simply unwind and enjoy each other’s company, Tanjong Beach is the ideal place. The wide expanse of pristine sand and a cool seaside breeze provides the perfect setting for a simple picnic and pleasant conversations. At nightfall, end the day off in spectacular fashion under a blanket of stars.

  1. Have Dessert At Esplanade Roof Terrace

With the panoramic views of Marina Bay serving as a dramatic backdrop, couples can forge a wonderful memory together at the top of the Esplanade.

8) Visit The Love Temple

Yueh Hai Ching Temple is one of the oldest in Singapore. It is known as The Love Temple because Yue Lao, believed to be the elder of the moon deity, sits in the center of this temple. Yue Lao is a matchmaker deity who ties red strings to couples, symbolizing marriage, love and romance. Are spiritual blessings on Valentine’s Day the best gifts of all?

9) Have A Picnic At Marina Barrage

Who knew that this innovative facility that helps supply water to Singaporeans is also one of the nicest places in the evening? The rooftop of the barrage boasts a circular green space that’s popular for picnics and sightseeing. As one of the go-to attractions for couples in Singapore, it is perhaps mandatory to include this on the list.

10) Watch An Outdoor Movie

MovieMob is a free outdoor drive-in movie screening that takes place in all locations around Singapore. Similar to the ones that we see in movies, this event happens on a first-come-first serve basis, so it’s best to stay updated on their social media pages. Although they don’t have fixed schedules, the people behind MovieMob are definitely planning something for Valentine’s Day. Watch this space.

11) Enjoy Some Sweet Tunes At Botanical Gardens

For a relaxing night in luscious natural settings, the Singapore Botanical Gardens is the quintessential choice. Be serenaded by the melodic vocals and romantic tunes of live bands under a moon lit sky. As this would be wildly popular, be prepared to head down an hour earlier to “chope” your seats. The performances begins at 7pm sharp!

12) Admire The Sunset At Labrador Park

During the day, you’d expect to see many families around the area due to its scenic views of the sea. However, at sundown, Labrador Park, coupled with well-lit paths and cool sea breezes, transforms into an offbeat place in Singapore for lovebirds. Let the sounds of gentle waves and the dim golden glow of the setting sun stir up your love.

Not many know about this, but did you know that there is a place in Clarke Quay for couples to hang their love locks? For the uninitiated, love locks are used by couples to symbolize their love for one another. The key is then thrown away to make it forever. Located just outside Clarke Quay Central, be sure to bring your own padlocks and Polaroids you don’t mind losing!

14) Quality Time At Home

To end off this list, people often underestimate the simplest gestures. Sometimes, a home-cooked meal followed by a romantic movie with wine and chocolate is really all that it takes to demonstrate your love for each other. Or perhaps, spend the evening at home sweet home in each other’s arms and cozy up with candles and ambient music.
