Festive locations to visit with your family this Christmas

Come December every year, and everyone’s got the festive moods.
Orchard Road lightup, Christmas trees everywhere, parties and feasting.

We are sharing our own favourite Christmas venues in this post 🙂
Singapore lies smack on the equator, the high humidity means we are always perspiring :p
That is not going to discourage families from enjoying the festive mood in the month of December.

We have a few personal favourites to recommend, and you guessed it.
If the venue has snow (I mean foam), it will score high on kids’ FUN rating.

1. Gardens by the Bay
The Super trees never disappoint. With their tall structure, add in a few “lightbulbs” and tata instant Christmas Trees 🙂

The highlights are the beautiful illumination from the Italian Luminaries and Spalliera!
They blink like precious stones from miles away and families and friends cannot resist selfies with these beautiful arches.

We always look forward to Gardens by the Bay’s Christmas celebrations, especially the Flower Dome!
Standing inside the dome and looking towards The Flyer, you have Singapore’s magnificent skyline infront of you.

The cool aircon does make us forget that we are in the tropics 🙂

This year, Flower Dome has been transformed into Toyland.
Teddies, Aeroplanes, Toy soldiers line the domes! Plenty of family photos for you and me.

2. Universal Studios Singapore (USS)
Themepark, rides, meet and greet your favourite characters.
Hello Shrek, Optimus, Madagascar, Minions and Sesame Street.

To our kids, USS is one of the happiest place in Singapore.
During the month of December, USS snows hourly!

It is not real snow but kids could not care less 🙂
Be prepared to stay there one whole day!

3. Tanglin Mall
When the kids were smaller, no one did Snow foam better than Tanglin Mall.
Everytime we drove around the corners, Tanglin’s Christmas decoration and snow always look so inviting.

I still remember Tanglin calling their “snow” avalanche”!
When you see the kids covered in foam from toe to head, you will understand why :p

Even parents could not resist joining in the fun. I should bring the kids there one more round before they grow older. (2012 experience –> https://sengkangbabies.com/fun/tanglin-mall-is-snowing)

Tips : Regulars will wear swimwear and even rain coats, do bring a towel and spare clothes.

4. Changi Airport for the StarWars Fans (Dads and Mum)
Changi always has this mega bouncing castle at T3 during year end school holidays.
Families love to pop by Changi Airport for food and shopping, followed by some festive activities.

The Force is strong at Changi this year, with X-wing and Tie fighter parked for the month of December!
Witness Stormtrooper crush the rebels every Sat 4pm.

Besides the traditional bouncing castle, kids can navigate their BB-8 through a circuit too.
There are always so many activities to keep families entertained and fed at Changi Airport.

We really love the huge open space for kids to walk and run.

  1. Hahaha.. I love how you describe the super trees at GBTB. It’s amazing what lights can do to make it seems all festive! Oooh.. I didn’t know about the snow at Tanglin Mall either. It seems fun and totally worth taking the kids. Thanks for sharing!
