Christmas Holidays in Singapore


Though Singapore receives millions of vacationers and tourists throughout the year, there is a stupendous surge in the inflow of holidaymakers and sightseers during the festive season of Christmas. Singapore, in the last ten years has witnessed a tourism boom owing to some good reasons.

Why Holidaymakers and Vacationers Flock to Singapore During Christmas?

This puny city-state takes on an altogether new life during the Yuletide season as numerous cultural and social events are held in the noteworthy areas including Marina Bay, Orchard Road, Little India, Chinatown, Clarke Quay, Sentosa Island, and the Esplanade waterfront.

Secondly, the top notch sightseeing attractions many of which are remnants from Singapore’s colonial past like the National Museum of Singapore, Singapore Botanical Gardens and Singapore Zoo are bedecked specially during Christmas.

Then again, Singapore is transformed into a mammoth shopping hub as malls, supermarkets and standalone retail outlets compete with each other to offer fabulous discounts and rebates on every and any item you can envisage purchasing. Shoppers can also claim tax exemptions if they shop from select outlets on specific days and times for a specified amount and make payments through prescribed debit or credit cards.

Healthcare tourism is also catching on in a big way in the country as many tourists and visitors rush to Singapore during Yuletide for seeking medical treatment. Many private and public hospitals and medical specialities in Singapore charge much less than their counterparts in Europe and North America for an extensive range of operations and therapeutic treatments.

Singapore is also a key gateway to many Southeast Asian countries and the Far East. You can opt for a combined package that not only lets you see the sights and sounds in the Lion City but also allows you to spend a day or two in Pattaya, Borneo, Phuket, Hong Kong or Shanghai.

So, irrespective of whether you’re travelling to Singapore with your family or as a honeymooner, backpacker or business visitor, the nation offers exciting holidaying options during Christmas.
