Who cares about snow when we can revel in Christmas splendor in scorching Singapore without risking frostbites and chapped lips. Enjoy the classic Christmas songs sung by choirs fronted by cherubic children. Feel Singapore Christmas 2013 festive from 20 November 2013 to 2 January 2014 with Orchard Road and Marina Bay will be lit up in Christmas Splendour everynight. Expect parties everywhere in Singapore on the Christmas Eve 24 December 2013 – 25 December 20113, and New Year Eve 31 December 2013 – 1 January 2014.
*A note for visitors with children/elderly : Orchard Road will be particularly crowded on the Chirstmas Eve and New Year Eve. You might want to enjoy the evening somewhere else.
Even though Singaporeans don?t get to experience the four seasons, much less snow, they definitely know when is the season to be jolly. Christmas in the Tropics is a month-long festival that takes the carnival to the streets in Singapore?s all-year round balmy, summer heat.
Street performers go wild in the city, especially on the streets of Orchard Road, with their capers and feats of gravity defying acrobatics. Choirs of cherubic children can also be seen and heard angelically carolling, human statues roam around freely and interacting with the crowds and stilt-walkers skip about, always game for a picture or two. So it?s just not about taking photographs with men in bright red fat suits and white beards impersonating Santa Claus.
This is one place where you can watch a fashion show outdoors without getting frostbitten. And for fashion fans, look out for the colourful make-shift stages which are decked out in glittering lights and decorative baubles, all ready for local and regional models to strut across them in the season?s trendiest style offerings ? adding to the already bustling festival vibe in the city.
Feast your eyes on visual panoply of seasonal decorations, and we?re not just talking about the annual Christmas light up along shopping strip Orchard Road. Shopping centres like Tangs and Takashimaya compete with each other every year with illuminating decorations that seem to creep magically from the ground level all the way up to the rooftop, while other major malls like Wisma Atria, Orchard Central and ION put on quite a show too.
The light-up stretches over a mile down from Tanglin to Concorde Hotel, varying in color from blue (Tanglin to Shaw Centre) to orange (Ion Orchard to the Heeren) to red (Orchard Shopping Centre to Concorde Hotel).
Come and experience the meaning of Christmas, and enjoy the colourful lights of Orchard Road. At the same time, catch the excitement of taking a family portrait amongst the colourful displays. There will be nightly performances at the Christmas Village fronting Mandarin Gallery,Tong Building, the walkway fronting Wisma Atria and Ion Orchard Shopping Mall.
