Holiday experiences in Singapore
#1 Experience a Christmas winter wonderland in the tropics
If you fancy savouring some mulled wine with a hearty bratwurst, while discovering handcrafted gems and nostalgic two-tiered merry-go-rounds at quaint European Christmas markets – we have the perfect place for you.
Soak up the magical atmosphere at Christmas Wonderland 2016, Singapore’s largest yuletide fair that offers an unforgettable and fun experience for the whole family.
Nestled in Gardens by the Bay, spanning a massive 57,000 sqm, be enchanted by the gorgeous Luminarie light sculptures – delicately handmade in Italy – as it illuminates the Marina Bay area at night.
As you weave your way around the Supertree Grove to The Meadow, you’ll also find light sculptures intertwined with four main areas that both young and old will enjoy:
- The Festive Market
Go all-out Christmas shopping with crafts and vintage finds, and indulge in mouth-watering festive treats at 24 charming European-style mini-cabins.
Everyone will naturally be in a festive mood as they enjoy carnival rides and games, live music acts and Christmas parades.
- Ice Palace
Bundle up before you spin around the ice skating rink, zoom down a thrilling 25-metre long ice slide, or even have a snowball fight at the Snow Playground!
- Hi-5 Funtastic House
Fun awaits as your little ones join in interactive games, dress up as their favourite Hi-5 characters, and groove with them through song and dance.

Calling all fitness junkies and adrenaline-seekers: BOUNCE Singapore, has your name written all over it.
