Things to do for Christmas in Singapore


If you’re still to make up your mind on visiting Singapore during Christmas as you’re of the opinion that the island nation doesn’t dress up appropriately for the Yuletide season (as you’d like to), then discard such a prejudice. If you’re prepared to think out of the straightjacket of a traditional Christmas, you’ll go back home from Singapore with memories that’ll linger on for a lifetime. If you plan a trip to Singapore this December, you’ll be able to experience a ‘tropical Christmas’-an experience that you may not have had earlier and will likely not have in the near future. You’ll simply run out of things to do in Singapore during Christmas.

1. Bask in the light shows on Orchard Road

You should head to the shopping district on Orchard Road in the evening for getting one with the masses and enjoying the light shows and displays. Orchard Road is Singapore’s major shopping district and is with popular with tourists throughout the world. Preparations for lighting up the entire area start in the first week of December.

You’ll be simply bedazzled by the spectacular lighting displays throughout the entire length of Orchard Road. Hop aboard an open-top bus to get a bird’ eye view. Thereafter head to the Marina Bay Sands area to view giant structures resembling trees and fully bedecked with different types of lights.
      
2. Take a Stroll Down Chinatown

Do not follow the beaten track by dutifully turning up at a museum or archive just as any run-off-the-mill traveller would do. If you’re really interested in catching a slice of this city-state’s fascinating past, take a stroll down Chinatown or Little India. Surely step inside the Chinatown Heritage Centre (in Chinatown) to catch rare glimpses of Singaporean life during the early 20th cent and the latter half of the 19th century. Little India is no less fascinating. Surely pick up a curio or a souvenir on your way out.

3. Go for a Facelift

If you’ve been planning to go for a facelift or a Botox quick-fix for giving yourself an image makeover, then you’re in the right place at the right time. Singapore is fast coming up as a popular medical tourism destination. You can go for a non-invasive facelift or a quick nip or tuck in a medical facility in Singapore at less than half the cost in any medical centre in an European or North American country.

4. Embark on a Shopping Spree

Christmas is the best time to touch down in Singapore, if you’re looking for the best of bargain deal for any item you wish to buy. You can shop for an extensive range of electronic items, apparels, toys, home decoration, home appliances, and innumerable other items. Shopping outlets and establishments remain open for long hours and fiercely compete with each other to offer you earth-shattering discounts. So, shop till you drop.

5. Get on Top of the World Courtesy the Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer outdoes the London Eye in every way you can compare. For a start, it’s taller than London Eye. You can view the neighbouring countries from when you’re at the peak. Singaporeans say the price (S$29.50) is a little too exorbitant for a ride that lasts about half-an-hour. For you it means that you won’t have to queue up to get atop the Singapore Flyer!

6. Freak Out

Commemorate 25th December and ring in the New Year in style by getting into the groove at Singapore year-end bash –ZoukOut that is held annually at the Silosa Beach in Sentosa Island. ZoukOut is a music and dance festival organized by Zouk where local musicians, singers and renowned DJs from all over the world congregate to enthral partygoers with funky music styles and songs.
