Christmas by the Bay


When the months hit “ber”, that means Christmas is coming. Here in Singapore, as early as September, Christmas preparations are underway. This goes to show that Singaporeans love the holiday season. Who would not love Christmas? The sparks and colours are treasured by children. The festivities and gatherings are prized by adults. Christmas is indeed a celebration for all.


For this Christmas, what are your plans as a family? You may decide to stay at home and cook good meals. You can also decide to visit your relatives outside of Singapore and spend the Christmas there. Families have their own Christmas tradition but it would be great to spend it now at the Gardens by the Bay. Gardens divulged their plans for Christmas.

Sounds interesting, right? If you hear activities or showcases sponsored by Gardens by the Bay, you should expect no less than perfection. Gardens by the Bay will introduce Christmas Wonderland. Here are some things that you need to know about it:

  • Budget: The management hopes that Christmas Wonderland will become an annual event. For the event to happen, the management allocated about a million dollars. The event will cover the main entrance of the Gardens. It will also cover the Supertree Grove and the Flower Dome. In total, it will cover about 18,000 square meter of the Gardens.
  •  Highlights: Christmas Wonderland will be open to public on November 29, 2014 to January 1, 2015. You will be glad to know that what you will see will be the first in South East Asia. There’s the Luminarie light sculptures from the south of Italy. These light sculptures are Baroque inspired. There will be thirty installations of pieces spread all over the Gardens. Watch out for the Spalliera, the largest of all light structures which will be nestled in the Supertree Grove. You should also watch out for the Spiegeltent. This is a tent that will offer dining experience; it will feature a thousand pieces of stained glass, mirrors, wood and canvas.


  • Festive Market: Like the Winter Wonderland Christmas Market in London, Singapore will also feature Festive Market. Festive Market will consist of twenty five wooden huts for visitors who are looking to get Christmas goodies and delectable foods.
  • Choir programme: Christmas will not be Christmas without carollers. There’s the 12 Days of Choir programme that will croon visitors around the area.

This will be enough. For sure your Christmas will never be the same. The good thing is that the admission is free. You can invite your relatives abroad so they too can witness its grandeur.
