It’s finally Christmas, but we don’t need to tell you that things are different this year.
You might choose to camp in for a feel-good holiday movie marathon, host an intimate party with your friends, or share a good ol’ Christmas roast with your family, complete with log cakes and pudding. But if you’re itching to do your merry-making outside, you’ll have just as many options.
Expect a lot of lights: both Gardens By The Bay and Changi Airport will be putting on spectacular showcases that are bright enough to prelude the fireworks of New Year’s Day. There’s also an overarching theme of travel in this year’s list of Yuletide festivities, whether through space (get a taste of European holiday cheer at the Flower Dome) or time (climb aboard The Orient Express, a 19th-centry symbol of luxury). These offer a nice change of scenery, much needed after a year of cancelled vacation plans.
Ready to make unforgettable memories this December holidays? Read on for our round-up of the best Christmas events in Singapore.

Gardens By The Bay’s Christmas Wonderland is where you’ll probably experience the most festive magic this year. On top of a Virtual Wonderland filled with fun games and performances for the whole family, the event includes the annual Walk of Lights: a 370-metre path along the Supertree Grove lined with spectacular light installations (or luminarie, as Dior taught us). Among the new showcases you’ll want to snap for your Instagram are the 17-metre high “Spalliera”, the “Magical Carriage” and the “Path of Tranquility”.
Address: Gardens By The Bay, 18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953
There are more luminarie sculptures to be found over at the Flower Dome, which will house this year’s edition of Poinsettia Wishes. The annual floral showcase will highlight festive blooms — such as the Mexican poinsettia and the Christmas Rose — alongside lavishly decorated Christmas trees and towering nutcrackers. There’s also a recreation of the Gouda City Hall, the Netherlands landmark that is traditionally lit up with candles during Yuletide. You can a taste of that European holiday cheer without a flight ticket.

3. Culinary workshops at The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore
If you spent the pandemic downtime getting to know your kitchen, you might want to check out what The Capitol Kempinski Hotel Singapore has in store this December. For one, there’s a baking workshop hosted by the hotel’s Pastry Chef Sam Tan, who will lead you through the art of perfecting holiday treats like the Fruit Cake and Gingerbread Man. You can also tackle the Christmas Roast at another workshop, where you will be guided through marinating, handling, and trimming beef, lamb or turkey — the whole works. Each workshop runs a little over 2 hours, and you can make it even more fun by inviting four other friends or family members to join you.

There’s something strange about going to Changi Airport without expecting to board a flight, but that’s 2020 for you. Besides, this December, you actually have reasons to hang around its various terminals thanks to the Changi Festive Village. Discover attractions like the “Tokidoki Snow Holiday” fun house (located in Terminal 3), where you’ll get to slide down real snow and experience snowfall, or the “Shiseido Forest Valley” (Jewel Changi), which houses a 16-metre-high Christmas tree.
Address: Changi Airport, Airport Boulevard, Singapore 918146
5. Once Upon a Time on The Orient Express
Once Upon A Time on The Orient Express is not exactly Christmas-themed, but there is something magical about stepping into the old-world glamour of two restored 20th century train carriages from France. At the pop-up, you’ll discover a “fairytale universe related to travel, culture and gastronomy”, complete with artifacts and interactive displays related to the legendary luxury train. You’ll also get to dine on dishes prepared Michelin-starred chef Yannick Alléno within a 1925 Anatolia dining car, or taste the many coffee blends offered at The Orient Express Road Café.
Address: West Lawn, Gardens by the Bay, 18 Marina Gardens Drive, Singapore 018953
