Still thinking if you should pay $10 to visit this year’s Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay? We tell you why you should.
If you’re a sucker for Instagrammable Christmas decor, you would’ve definitely heard of Christmas Wonderland at Gardens By The Bay. Even COVID-19 can’t prevent Singapore’s biggest annual yuletide fair from pulling out all the stops. Christmas Wonderland 2021 marks its eighth year with not just its signature luminarie light installations, but a double-storey carousel in which you can actually ride on.
Expect to see a total of 1,215,600 LED bulbs across nine installations (no kidding!) such as the Enchanted Bridge and Walk of Stars.
The route will take around 20 to 30 minutes to complete, which includes eight other stunning light installations in brand new designs such as the Tinsel Castle, Golden Gift and more.
Until 2 January 2022, Christmas Wonderland 2021 will be opened daily from 6.30pm to 11pm. Can’t decide if you should fork out $10 for a ticket? We tell you why you should.
Impressive light installations
Walk of Stars by Grabpay
Enjoy a quiet and intimate stroll with your soulmate through this animated trail of illuminous stars. Each star exudes a somber violet purple glow, and when they coalesce with the ambience, it results in a starry canvas that encapsulates the beauty of young love.
Get into the Christmas spirit under The Spalliera, a stunning 21-metre tall structure inspired by Europe’s gothic cathedrals and grandiose castles.
Take gifting to a whole new level with this newly-introduced light installation. The Golden Gift, while enchanting, is empty inside. This may be an attempt by the designer to emulate what may be the true gift of the festival — our family and loved ones.
Enchanted Bridge by Grabpay
Bring out your inner Disney prince and princess at this 30-metre long bridge illuminated by 100,000 LED bulbs.
The Venetian double-storey carousel
For $10, you can take a ride on the only double-storey Venetian horse carousel in Singapore, which was hand-painted by artists and crafted by skilled craftsmen in Europe. As limited ride slots are available daily, do remember to book in advance! Click here to purchase your tickets.
