What to Expect During the Holiday Season in Singapore

Due to its location, Singapore has hot and humid weather all year-round. While there is a constant influx of visitors throughout the year, most of them arrive during summer in the middle of the year. The festive Christmas holiday season is more wet than usual, with seasonal monsoons, and you can expect showers from November to January. A little rain in such a balmy climate doesn’t stop adoptive and native Singaporeans from having a great time in this vibrant city.

A Medley of Flavours

Singapore is home to people from many different races and cultures, therefore their backgrounds have influenced traditional Christmas meals to create some very special dishes. You can find exciting combinations, such as turkey seasoned with ginger and chilli.

Best Wishes

The end of the year brings out the best in people and it is the perfect time to send your messages of hope or to share your dreams and wishes. During December, you can collect a wishing charm and tie it to a wishing tree. The wishing trees will be lit up every evening until the New Year arrives. This proves to be a visual treat and a heartwarming spectacle.

Celebrate December

The Esplanade provides a fantastic opportunity to enjoy musical performances, interactive storytelling sessions and other fun activities for children. The activities are usually free and you will be spoilt for choice.

SSO Christmas Concert

The Singapore Symphony Orchestra Christmas Concert at the Victoria Concert Hall should not be missed. You can join in during the singalong segment to boost your festive spirits. It’s best to purchase your tickets months in advance.

Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay

Enjoy light sculptures, seasonal markets and special events at an iconic location. Spend time with your loved ones at the Ice Palace and ice-skating rink. You can feast on traditional food, such as turkey breast and Christmas pudding at The Glass House restaurant.

Visit Orchard Road

Any Singaporean will know that Orchard Road is the perfect place to pursue your Christmas shopping. During the holiday season, this retail paradise transforms into a winter wonderland. The decorations and lights will cheer you and are guaranteed to put you in the festive mood. Shopping hours are extended so you will have plenty of time to find the perfect gifts. In the spirit of giving, if you’d like to give back this Christmas and wish to help those in need, you can volunteer at numerous organisations or donate money to charities.

Welcome the New Year

The Marina Bay Singapore Countdown is the best way to say goodbye to the old year and welcome the new one. An eight-minute fireworks display combined with the impressive backdrop of Singapore’s skyline will amaze tourists and locals alike.

It’s not too early to plan a very Merry Christmas, so you can see in the New Year in Singapore in style.
