Christmas Season Tips (4)

Christmas on Orchard Road

Late November to December is a great time to visit Singapore. They do a very impressive light display. I was really suprised how much money, time and decorations they put into making Orchard Road look Christmasy.

At the tanglin mall they have a display that spits out fake snow. Well it's really soap. But when it's flying in the air, it looks quite realistic. This is done at certain times. Also, a few times a week they have avalanche speed. I didn't see it coming down, but saw some kids covered in soap bubbles. Quite funny-not sure how they got home though. Hope they brought extra clothes.

Raffles city mall down by city hall also decorates.

Christmas in the Tropics

What a sight! Kilometre after kilometre of Christmas lights strung up along Orchard Road, decorations on every corner - it was beautiful. You can take a Hippo Bus Christmas Light Up tour, which was a ride on the open air top deck of a double decker bus, with commentary.

Just fantastic to see how much effort went into this. I thought the Christmas decorations in Perth were pathetic before I saw this, now I just wonder why they bother putting them up at all!

Christmas in the Tropics runs from mid November to the end of December annually and there are all sorts of things happening to celebrate the season.

It's Christmas Light-Ups Once Again! (Orchard Rd)

In Singapore, we celebrate Christmas...not with snow but with LIGHT-UPS...the Singapore style! Every year, Orchard Road, also known as Singapore's main shopping haven, will be lavishly decorated with light-ups...based on different themes. All the shopping centres along Orchard Road will be busy decorating and coming up with the best light-ups. The light-ups will usually start one month prior to Christmas. So the whole of November...Orchard Road will be the busiest place in Singapore...full of tourists and locals...posing and taking a snapshot with Christmas trees! My personal favourite of all the shopping centres' decorations will have to be TANGS. Every year I will be waiting anxiously to see what theme they will come up with and carry through their Christmas do keep a look out if you intend to spend a sunny and glittery Christmas here, in Singapore.

X'mas tree

I was in S'pore at the begining of November and I was surprised to see this huge X'mas tree. It was funny seeing a X'mas tree at 30 degrees. nevertheless it was decorated beautifully... I guess they want to make all the tourists from the west to feel just like at home and make them spend even more money....
