Let’s hope everyone had a wonderfully scary Halloween this year.
Though the festival is not indigenous to Singapore, it is still celebrated here with much enthusiasm and commercialisation.
If you’re in Singapore this December, check out the annual yuletide fair (2 December, 2016 – 1 January 2017) that transforms Gardens by the Bay into a festive playground, open daily from 3.30pm to 11pm. Prices below.
This is the third year for the Christmas Wonderland in Singapore, and the first time entrance is being charged (see sidebar).
The Christmas extravaganza is almost twice the size of last year’s – with an additional 57,000 square metres of event ground – offering new experiences such as the Magical Forest a Hi-5 Fantastic House, and more carnival attractions.
Visitors to the fair can embark on a festive journey and marvel at the Italian luminarie – Sculptures of Light illuminating the fairground, which has been expanded to 57,000sqm, almost twice the size of last year’s fair.
New experiences await visitors of all ages, from wintry fun at the Ice Palace, to the local debut of the Hi-5 Funtastic House and a magical forest of Christmas trees.
Visitors can also look forward to a bigger festive shopping and dining experience, more carnival games and curated festive performances.
Parking at Gardens by the Bay is limited so visitors are encouraged to take public transport to the event.
More details about the Christmas Wonderland and its attractions in the press release below.
Helsinki2013Jun: Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum… meet the fine Finn fishmonger in Hakaniemi Market Hall.
The market in Helsinki has a homely feel around it.
This young Finn spotted me taking a picture of his store and spontaneously posed for the photo.
