It’s the most wonderful time of the year in Singapore!
Singapore is not typically a destination Filipinos visit during the Christmas holidays – but we wonder, why not? Nevermind the tropical climate – this city packs in a whole lot of holiday spirit within its walls. And if we know anything to be true for Filipinos – it’s that we love the holiday season, so we can’t think of a better bunch to spend Christmas in Singapore!
If you needed a little bit of convincing to even consider this nearby destination – here are a couple of events and activities you’re missing out on if you decide to sleep on this fun sized city for the holidays.
1. Christmas on A Great Street
Santa Claus is coming to town – or in this case – to Orchard Road! Lights abound this major shopping district in Singapore as Christmas rounds the corner. Apart from the glorious Christmas sales you can expect in the upcoming weeks, the amount of Christmas lights, sound and decor will surely shake you into the Christmas mood.
This year’s, ‘The Greatest Gift’ theme will stretch over the 6km shopping street, dazzled with spellbinding lights, the popular Great Christmas Village, food trucks, musical performances, plus photo opportunities with none other than Santa and his reindeers!
2. 2019 Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens By The Bay
For its 6th run, the Gardens By The Bay Christmas Wonderland is set to showcase a Christmas spectacle like no other! Returning for yet another year is the ever-stunning Italian Luminaire lights that brighten up the entire landscape of the gardens. These are accompanied by a nightly Christmas parade, Santa’s Workshop, a Christmas Village and Christmas plays to name a few!
This year, Klook is the official ticketing partner of Gardens By The Bay Christmas Wonderland! You can get discounted tickets if you pre-book your admission tickets on Klook – so what are you waiting for?
3. Universal Studios Singapore Christmas
Universal Studios Singapore knows how to do Christmas the right way! In addition to the exciting rides and attractions that you can experience year-round, this fan-favorite attraction decks its halls with Christmas decor as early as 2 Dec 2019 for those who want to kickstart the holiday cheer ASAP.
Additionally, you can meet characters from Despicable Me, ride Santa’s sleigh, and experience the theme park’s largest snowfall EVER – and what can be better than that?
4. Munch on Seasonal Treats
In case you’ve only ever heard of Singapore’s famous attractions and activities, you would be glad to know it’s got an amazing selection of culinary experiences for tourists to indulge in as well.

6. Pop-Up Christmas Markets
Normally, you would only ever hear of Christmas markets taking place in a number of cities across Europe. But what if we told you that you can actually find a handful in Singapore this Christmas season?
You can visit three Christmas Markets around the city this year – the Great Christmas Village in Ngee Ann City, Christmas in Queenstown located in Dundee Road, and the Festive Market at Gardens By The Bay’s Christmas Wonderland! You can expect a ton of food vendors, live music, and artisanal goods perfect for gift-giving in all of these markets and more!
