Christmas 2023: Feeling the Vibes of the Season

Orchard Road. Supported by the Singapore Tourism Board, this is the annual Christmas Orchard Road Light-up known as the Christmas on a Great Street. The whole road is set to transform into a Christmas wonderland with light displays, immersive attractions, musical entertainment and a variety of pop-up events.

Here we are again on the 12th month of 2023! Ain’t we all wonder where has the time gone! So, it’s the last month of the year to celebrate what happened this year and celebrate the festival season with family and friends.

Obviously, there’s no winter season in Singapore, but there’s joy and merry when it’s the festive season. Such a year this has been for us! As early as December, Singapore is welcoming the Yuletide season with decorations and ornaments on the streets and public places. This blog is all about Christmas tree and installations in Singapore. This year, big brands are all out in collaborating in giving joy and excitement through their grand Christmas decorations. So in the spirit of this Yuletide season, I took the liberty to snap some amazing festive decorations around the city.

Here are some of them and hope you will love them.

Changi Festival Village returns with something sweet, delicious and colorful season of festive cheer. Fronting the prime spot in front of Changi Terminal 3 Departure Hall is the Candy Wonderland featuring a 5 meter tall bear and a 7 meter tall rotating Ferris wheel. A candy-themed carnival full of games, castles and rides, and enter a delightful winter wonderland at the Candy Snow House. A great way to experience fun and excitement inside the airport without flying abroad.
