With each Christmas there seems to be more new and exciting events to celebrate this special day. Grab a pen, your calendar (or maybe just use your phone) and get ready to take down the upcoming events this Christmas in Singapore!
This event was a hit last year and so they decided to bring it back again. I’m talking about the Gardens by the Bay Christmas Wonderland. It is beautiful on normal days but by night it really is transformed into a stunning Christmas Wonderland. This year is even more grand with so many attractions included! Some of them include Luminaire which features light sculptures from highly skilled Italian craftsmen. There is also The Glass House by Harry’s where you can bask in the delightful and warm Christmas atmosphere and have a unique culinary experience. Also on the list and the most exciting arctic experience is the Ice Palace. The Ice Palace holds an ice skating rink, a snow playground and a 25 metre ice slide. Am I the only one who is so excited about the Ice Palace?! Tickets are priced at SGD 4 per person to enter and individual attractions inside like the Ice Palace will require tickets! Overall, I guess it would be slightly pricey but it is worth checking out the displays. The Christmas Wonderland opens from the 2nd December to the 1st of January, 330pm to 11pm.
Next up, revel in some festive cheer by heading down to the Botanic Gardens. This year, the Botanic Gardens is holding a month long event as well as a programme called, Trees of the World and Give to the Gardens respectively. Trees were collected, adopted and then decorated beautifully with Christmas ornaments for the Trees of the world event. Donations were given for the newly launched Give to the Gardens programme which will go towards research and education needs in the Botanic Gardens. So show your support by bringing your family, friends and spouse to the Botanic Gardens. Events start from the 29th November.
Welcome to Singapore’s largest outdoor inflatable playground! BounceOFF Fiesta is a huge outdoor playground for both adults and kids! There are four major play zones with different highlights that spans over a 40,000 square meter space along our Central Business District. The four play zones are named, BOUNCE, SLIDE, JUMP and FEAST. BOUNCE has more than 15 giant inflatable obstacles and slides, SLIDE is a zone to enjoy a fun and wet adventure, JUMP is for thrill seekers, because you will have to leap off Southeast Asia’s Tallest Blob Jump that oversees the entire bay! Lastly, FEAST, will satiate your appetite with a range of international cuisine and local favourites! All play zones (JUMP play zone will be opened until the 31st December) will be open from the 2nd December to the 1st of January. What are you waiting for!?
Here are the three events that are highly anticipated by almost everyone and it is for a good reason. At the end of the day, I believe that everyone is looking forward to these events not only to enjoy themselves but to also fully embrace the meaning of giving.
