See The Lion City in all its festive finery
With 2018 drawing to a close, everyone is on the lookout for the coolest spot to mingle with fellow revellers and enjoy the last two events of the year before embracing the start of the new. Leave the research to us and read on to find out our picks!
Gardens by the Bay
When in Singapore, one must, of course, pay a visit to the gorgeous Gardens by the Bay. This lit up wonderland will be transformed to feature unique attractions such as Luminarie, a mirror maze of light sculptures, carefully handmade by Italian craftsmen to lend an air of magic this festive season. Enjoy carolling, a festive market, carnival games and a chance to experience a white Christmas with Blizzard Time against a stunning backdrop of seasonal sculptures and Supertrees.
This shopping street may be famous the world over for its fashionable offerings but if you swing by during the yuletide season, something else will catch your eye. You’ll be greeted by Disney-themed light displays featuring sparkling snowflakes, prancing reindeer, and fairy lights from Tanglin Mall all the way to Plaza Singapura. Local performers also line the street providing festive entertainment to get you into that Christmas mood.
Warm and welcoming, glowing with lights from a variety of establishments offering great food and beverages, Clarke Quay promises an exhilarating countdown to the New Year. The streets may turn into a major party zone as the night draws to a close but who says you can’t close off the year quietly with a glass of wine and great company?
Grab some friends, cook up a storm and bring a picnic to this scenic spot to wait for the fireworks display happening at Marina Bay. You’ll be able to enjoy a meal under the stars on an expansive lawn with your favourite people as you welcome in the New Year – with good cheer and enough bubbly to go around.
Ain’t no New Year’s celebration without fireworks, am I right? Marina Bay offers the best view in the city, and it’s definitely something you won’t want to miss. The final spot in our list invites you to check out light projections, enjoy live music, as well as a food truck and bazaar as you await the end of the night to ring in the hopes and dreams for 2019.
