Christmas on a Great Street: Orchard Road Festive Light Up with Christmas in Bloom
The Christmas lights and decorations are out along Orchard Road and, this year, Christmas is in bloom. There are poinsettias-shaped decoration and festive arches adorning the streets.

ChariTrees at Marina Bay
Being held from 19 Nov to 26 Dec along Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade, ChariTrees features glowing Christmas Trees which represent the spirit of giving. This effort is part of a fund-raising initiative and it also helps to light up the waterfront area at the bay. Read more about ChariTrees.
Jewel Changi Airport Canopy Park
Jewel Changi Airport is also decked out for Christmas with lights at the Shiseido Forest Valley along with other activities too. One of the other festive spots where you can enjoy Christmas lights in Singapore is at Canopy Park. Its Petal Garden has been given a Christmas makeover with a Tiki twist to usher in the yuletide spirit. There are also other displays featuring landmarks from around the world like London Bridge and a Bali Swing Nest around Canopy Park too.
Changi Jurassic Mile
The festive spirit must be infectious because even the dinosaurs at Changi Jurassic Mile are getting into the festive spirit. See them in their lighted-up holiday best along the park connector in the evening. We were especially tickled to see the T-rex all ready to go skiing. This light up is part of Changi Festive Village 2021.
As you ride the escalators at Wheelock Place, take a look up and see a wonderful array of colours reflected in the glass dome above. It may be hard to actually take a selfie with this Christmas light-up but it is well worth appreciating.
Trees of the World
If you wish to enjoy lights at a place which is less crowded than the other spots, pay a visit to Singapore Botanic Gardens in the evening. Trees of the World is a light of trees around the bandstand. Read more about Trees of the World at Singapore Botanic Gardens.
Wisma Atria – An Alice in Wonderland-Inspired Christmas
Explore the whimsical world of the Mad Hatter, featuring a black and white checkered walkway, complete with larger-than-life floating tea sets, magic toadstools, animatronic moving flowers and a six-metres tall “Queen of Hearts” Christmas tree at Wisma Atria. This festive display was created by combining the creative elements of three ITE students who took part in a design competition.
