So here we are at the time of the year when Christmas carols play non stop in the shopping malls. Everyone is in a festive mood as the end of the year nears. If you haven’t visited Singapore before, Christmas season is a good time to visit. Christmas season starts early in November when the yearly Christmas decorations go up onto Orchard Road transforming the this shopping street into a Christmas Wonderland. There are also other Christmas themed events happening like at Gardens by the Bay.
While we don’t have winter and snow here, over the years fake snow has been making it’s way into Christmas events here. All to capture the mood of winter. So here are some photos of Christmas on the Red Dot.
Besides Orchard Road, there is a Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay starting from 1-26 Dec this year. There is an entrance fee which starts at SGD4 (if purchased online) and doubles to SGD8 for the week of Christmas. But if you want to enjoy some special Christmas lighting and cheer, I think the fee is not expensive. Here are some photos when I visited it.
So how does your city celebrate Christmas? Leave a comment.

So many lights! I’ve never seen a Christmas tree spray “snow” like that. The kids seemed to enjoy it.
Oh yes they do! They seem to enjoy it more than their parents. The fake snow actually comes from several foam generators around the area. It just looks like it comes from the tree.
It does look like comes from the tree, which wouldn’t make a lot of sense.
I’d love to see Singapore at this time of year Edwin. Looks like so much fun, especially that foam bath for the kids and the fake snow. Gardens by the Bay looks amazing too. 🙂
Plan for your next trip? 😁
Haha…. we were just there! 😉
Beautiful photos, looks a lot of fun 😊
Was it very crowded at the gardens? I was thinking of visiting but then I thought it would be too crowded for my liking…haha
I visited on a weekday (Monday) and it was ok. Try not to go on a Friday or weekends.
I see, ok, will keep that thought in mind to beat the crowds. Thanks! 🙂
