Christmas is fast approaching and it’s time to figure out what to do during the holidays. Sure, Singapore may not have snow or magical flying reindeers or snowmen, but whether it’s going out to shop for gifts for your loved ones or going out to enjoy a Christmas event, you can always count that Singapore will give you something to enjoy.
So if you’re someone that is new to Singapore or is traveling to spend the holidays over there, here are some places you can go and things that you can do this Christmas.
Now, the most popular things to do during Christmas in Singapore are eating and shopping. The city offers a lot of variety with regards to the shops you can shop in, and the food that you can try out – hypnotising guests with its lovely sales and different types of tasty treats that you can stop and enjoy while shopping for presents.
One of the best places to do these things is at Orchard Road, which enters its festive mood full front once the holidays come about, with the brightly decorated shopping centres and lights along the street together with shops that offer a lot of great Christmas discounts and sales.
Of course, just going around shopping can get tiring eventually, so while you’re in Orchard Road, there are also a variety of restaurants to check out during the holidays, particularly during Christmas itself if you want to treat yourself.
From places like Dean and Deluca on 181 Orchard Road which offers a simple yet elegant and delicious Christmas Menu to Jamie’s Italian at Forum Shopping Mall which offers a wonderful set of Christmas inspired Italian dishes for you to enjoy during the holidays. But that’s not all, there’s also many more restaurants and shop that offer a variety of foods from all over the world, a lot of which have been given a special Asian touch.
But the biggest event to go to in Orchard Rod is definitely Christmas On a Great Street. Starting on 12 November, Orchard Road will turn on the Christmas lights, illuminating and showcasing the beauty of the holiday with a festival of glittering lights and Christmas decorations of all of its shopping centres and establishments.
To top that off, you’ll be able to see a myriad of street performances all throughout the holidays, giving the whole event an even bigger carnival feel that’s sure to make you and your loved ones get in the Christmas move. If you have kids it even offers a “snow” field in Tanglin Mall for them to play around in and have fun while you check out everything else that the event has to offer.
You can do all of that and more at Orchard Road during this holiday season. But the one thing you must always remember to have fun and enjoy the festivities, they only come around once a year for a reason after all!
