A Yuletide Fair to Remember

Written by: Carla De Guzman/Wednesday, Dec 06, 2017 01:48 PM

Why hasn’t anyone invented a Christmas theme park yet? Imagine year-round cheer, Santa and reindeer, and peppermint-spiced everything? 

While our theme park dreams have yet to come to come true, Singapore’s Christmas Wonderland comes really close! On its fourth year, the Christmas extravaganza brings everyone’s favorite Christmas things to sunny Singapore at the Gardens by the Bay.

A lovely stroll through the European market-inspired Festive Market seems like a perfect place to pick up a few last minute gifts like hand-painted carousels from Whimsical Fantasies, Om Sweet Om’s beautiful, insta-worthy porcelains, or Sally’s Room’s lovely, handmade soy candles.

And when you’re all tuckered out from the Christmas shopping, the food comes along to bring you life. We can already taste the treats from Churros Republic, Meatballs in a Bucket or The M Plot Macarons! All of this happens under the lights of the iconic supertrees, which makes the perfect photo backdrop.

If the market isn’t your sort of thing, the Wonderland has all kinds of Christmas events. Handcrafted light sculptures join the rest of the Gardens by the Bay in the Luminarie for lovely Christmas photos. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous, the largest outdoor skating rink in Singapore will also be making an appearance. Or maybe you want to catch the Circus Abyssinia from Ethiopia while you’re there? Their acrobatic twists and tricks will keep you on the edge of your seat!

If that weren't enough, our guest of honor would be waiting at Santa’s Grotto to greet everyone among his flying reindeer and starry nightscape.

Oh, and did we mention that every so often, snow will come falling? By popular demand, Blizzard Time will now happen three to five times a day, making all of our tropical Christmas dreams come true!
