Dempsey Hill


Escape from the usual crowds in the city to the idyllic Dempsey Hill. Take a stroll in the evening after dinner to look at the blue and white Christmas lights around the enclave. The lights in the trees lend a romantic vibe even on rainy days, plus you won't be fighting the crowds at Dempsey.

Things to do


City Hall

Christmas is truly the season for the 'gram. Head to Chijmes where there will be plenty of light installations and laser projections throughout the grounds of the former convent. Snap a pic with a Santa and sleigh neon light-up one of the facades of Chijmes where there are beautiful graphics being projected on it. 


The Fullerton Hotel Singapore

Raffles Place

Overlooking the bay area and next to Singapore River, The Fullerton Hotel is a vision decked in twinkly lights. It's a stark contrast to its usual austere facade. Stroll past in the evening or at night to admire the Christmas lights or snap a picture.

Spread the festive cheer
