Santa Claus is coming to town (here's hoping the travel restrictions won't stop him) – and to make St Nick's visit a memorable one, the streets of Singapore is putting up a show with twinkling fairy lights, stunning festive displays and elaborated Christmas trees. Kicking in the holiday spirit, these Christmas light displays not only lighten up moods but also make excellent additions to the 'gram and idyllic backdrops while you shop or stroll through the man-made winter wonderland.

Hotels City Hall

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and especially so over at Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES. During this festive period, the two lifestyle destinations transform into magical wonderlands filled with light installations, a massive Singing Tree, and giant Nutcracker soldiers. For some Christmas shopping, browse from over 20 Christmas booths, selling everything from tea sets to self-care essential oil. The celebration continues with light projection shows, Instagram-friendly installations, and an 8-metre tall Singing Tree that belts out holiday tunes at various time slots.

Shopping Shopping centres Orchard

The swanky shopping mall is dressed to the nines with gold and silver trimmings. However, the main star is the first-ever Magical Pinwheel Tree that stands for the universal symbol of life and resilience – a reflection of 2020. Towering at almost 20-metres tall, the enchanting installation is brought to life by an illuminated inner core that’s tricked out with over 250 sustainable pinwheels generating a dynamic light sequence. What’s even magical about it is the fact that it’s interactive. Give it a spin and watch it light up in different sequences.

Shopping City Hall

Take a break from all that Christmas shopping, and feast your eyes on the mall’s main draw: the sparkling 15-metre-tall Christmas tree. Paying homage to the 125th anniversary of Swarovski, the dazzling display is blinged out in crystals, fairy lights and raindrop icicle lights, lighting up the bustling junction of Stamford Road and North Bridge Road. Inspired by the traditional Christmas trees in the Tyrolean Alps in Austria, home to Swarovski, it’s also designed to centre around the 2020 Holiday Campaign, featuring a large brilliant snowflake perched on top, and its signature blue boxes and red ribbons sat at the base. 

Spread the festive cheer
