The month of December, the last month of the calendar year, it’s usually a whole month of festivities, fun, gatherings and celebrations leading up to Christmas and the New Year. In Singapore, there are a number of places to celebrate Christmas in the month of December and one great destination to celebrate Christmas in Singapore is to visit Gardens By The Bay for Christmas Wonderland.
Singapore largest yuletide fair is now at Gardens By The Bay, lighted up by bright, colourful, dazzling and amazing Italian Luminarie light sculptures, a European style festive market and there is also Christmas Toyland floral display in the Flower Dome (there are many cute teddy bears!!).
Let me walk you through the fun, celebrations and festivities of Christmas Wonderland 2015 at Gardens By The Bay, with my stories and photos.
Christmas Toyland Floral Display
First and foremost, let’s enter the Flower Dome, decorated and transformed into a Christmas Toyland Floral Display. The kids are going to love the toyland and I am pretty sure adults would love the Christmas toyland too! You can find cute toys there inside the Christmas Toyland, they are the “star attractions”, if you are a fan of teddy bears, you must not miss the Christmas Toyland inside the Flower Dome! While you are enjoying the Christmas Toyland, keep a lookout and spot the yuletide floral favourites like the poinsettia, Christmas rose.
An 11 metre high Christmas Pyramid, in the middle of the Christmas Toyland Floral Display, stands out in the Flower Dome, towering over the floral display area. You can’t miss it and you want to visit it, it’s packed and decked with toys on its multi-tiered traditional German wooden carousel.
Christmas Wonderland at the SuperTree Grove
Next, let’s walk towards the SuperTree Grove where many beautiful and dazzling lights welcome you. This sector has many attractions and fun for you, your loved ones and your friends to enjoy.
Among the tall and might SuperTrees, you can find the festive market, the Spalliera and Ice Palace, where the tallest sculpture of lights towering over 20m can be found.
The Spalliera is the largest Luminarie, surrounding the Cassa Armonica, an 8m wide gorgeous and beautifully lighted gazebo. When you are inside the Spalliera, wait for the Blizzard Time @ Spalliera, to revel and enjoy the wonder of “snow” in the tropics with the nightly Blizzard Time.
The Ice Palace makes her maiden debut at Christmas Wonderland 2015 at Gardens By The Bay, featuring a snow playground and ice skating rink. I reckon this would be a big attraction for family with young children to experience snow and ice skating in the tropics. The Spiegeltent, an ornate century old traveling mirror tent from the Netherlands, is located at SuperTree Grove sector, do drop by and check them out!
Celebrating the festivities, fun, joy and spirit of Christmas at Gardens By The Bay, keep a lookout for festive entertainment and performances –
- Choral performances at Cassa Armonica by various schools

- Home for the Holidays (Christmas Toyland at the SuperTree Grove)
After spending time at the SuperTree Grove, walk towards The Fairground, located near The Meadow. This is a fun fair carnival ground, the kids would love it and I am sure the adults would love it too!
What are the fun things that you can enjoy and do at The Fairground ?
- Vintage Carousel
- Helter Skelter (It’s a 14m high slide!)

This is a good time to play games, have fun and enjoy the Christmas festive season!
