Check out our guide on what to see, do and eat in Singapore!
It’s everyone’s favourite time of the year where spirits are high and celebrations are in the air. Travel is also at the peak during this time of the year. If you have planned a trip to Singapore or will stopover in Singapore during your travels in December, here are a list of things to do in the little red dot.
Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By the Bay
Go on a whimsical Christmas journey at this impressive city in a garden; expect to enjoy a multitude of activities with various attractions to discover. The annual event – Christmas Wonderland – promises to be double the fun with an extended fairground. Get into the spirit with performances and carnival activities, shopping and dining options and be amazed by the Italian luminarie light sculptures.
Enjoy the cool climate of the Flower Dome, where Christmas flowers are the star of the show, including poinsettias, Christmas roses featuring yuletide scenes, conifer trees and amaryllis, among others. At night, the Flower Dome is transformed and Italian Luminarie Lights create a magical setting.
Get your tickets; you will certainly not be disappointed.
Christmas on a Great Street
Looking for last minute Christmas gifts for loved ones or family? There is no better place to get your shopping done than at Singapore’s prime shopping destination, Orchard Road. Soak in the atmosphere and enjoy the decorations along the street and outside selected malls as locals and travellers indulge in retail and dining on Singapore’s Great Street.
With a mix of international luxury labels to local designers, this is certainly a shopping haven for presents for loved ones. Why not treat yourself to a gift as well while you are at it! “Spread the Joy” and join in the festivities along the street; from performances such as carolling, to interactive installations, young and old will be kept entertained.
With all the crowd tackling and walking expected, come prepared with comfortable footwear and sling on a crossbody bag for hands-free convenience. Take part in the Best Dressed Building Contest and stand a chance to win shopping vouchers.
Festive Bazaars & Festive Fairs
We know how gift shopping can get frustrating especially if you are looking for something unique to surprise that creative friend or if you want to move away from common present options. For inspiring fashion, homeware, art & craft or gifts for little ones, these fairs will have something for each budget.
For art aficionados, you should pay a visit to the Affordable Art Fair at the F1 Pit Building. Featuring local, regional and international talents at affordable prices, gifting that creative painting or sculpture will certainly not blow a hole in your pocket and you know that it will certainly brighten up the recipient’s room (and life). The fair is held from 18-20 November.
Families can shop together too, at The Expat’s Weekender Fair at PasarBella. This community-based market is perfect for families to have fun. Expect vendors in art & craft, design, food and more. Fill those stockings (and tummies) at this shopping event, from 9-11 December.
For those looking for gifts with a local twist, KEEPERS – Singapore Designers Collective is home to local labels of fashion, jewellery, home décor and more.
Be a Local Chef
There is no better way to enrich your holiday than with a cultural cooking class that will equip you with knowledge on how to whip up some local cuisine. Learn about Singapore’s rich cultural heritage through hands-on sessions with friendly instructors. Surprise your friends and loved ones with a different menu when you return home. It will certainly make you the hostess with the mostest!
You will be pleasantly surprised at the things you can do, while in tropical Singapore!
