You and your loved ones will enjoy the pretty lights and inventive decorations that deck all of Orchard Road this Christmas, but why stop there? The most memorable experience in town would surely be dining under the stars – in air-conditioned domes available at CHIJMES and Capitol City!

With a private space all to yourselves that gives a luxurious view of the gorgeous sights all around, this is a novel experience that your family will remember for many Christmases to come!


2) Enjoy a marvelous Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay

Your loved ones and you will be amazed by a vast array of never-before-seen light installations that have been specially curated for this Christmas season.

Christmas… Christmas lights… light installations… multi-sensory light installations by homegrown artists that provide meaningful enjoyment for the whole family? Why not!

Support the local arts scene this Christmas by popping by the Lite On exhibition at Downtown East! You’ll be surprised at the inspiration that strikes the whole family when they behold the creative genius of our Singaporean artists. It might even yield some interesting discussions – and even if it doesn’t, you’ll always have amazing photos to keep for always.


4) Challenge one another with the Standard Chartered Singapore Marathon (SCSM)

Who says the Christmas season has to be all about festivities though? You and your family can be a little unconventional and bond over the last major running event of 2020, which comes with a twist! Due to the special circumstances surrounding this year, the marathon will use immersive augmented reality. This means that you can run on a treadmill in the safety of your own home and still experience all the usual marathon sights, like Orchard Road and the Civic District.


5) Drink up at the Singapore Tea and Coffee Festival

Bond as you participate in fun workshops, educational live chats, and exciting live sales events where you’ll be able to buy artisanal tea and coffee from brands all over the world.

Beyond tea and coffee, you and your loved ones will also be able to savour your favourite local treats, learn new skills, and tour five selected outlets islandwide!



2020 has not been an easy ride, but we can always end it on a high note this Christmas season. 😊
