The annual festival Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay returns from 3 December to 2 January 2022. Look forward to festive Light Displays, Santa Claus, Carnival Games, Carousel rides and more!
Christmas Wonderland at Gardens by the Bay has been the highlight of the Yuletide season here in Singapore. And the good news? Christmas Wonderland is back in 2021 after going virtual last year. This year Christmas Wonderland will feature spectacular light displays, photo ops with Santa Claus, carnival games, a Venetian double-storey carousel for kids to ride on, plus a European-style Christmas market as well as a special festive Garden Rhapsody light and sound show, and more!
1. Festive Light Displays at Christmas Wonderland
Look out for eight magical light displays at Christmas Wonderland!
- Standing at seven-storeys high, the magnificent Spalliera is handmade in Italy and takes its inspiration from the circular rose windows found in Europe’s Gothic churches.
- The Walk of Stars spans 44 metres of festive lights. Wander through this spectacular light tunnel made up of thousands of programmable star-shaped LED lights. We reckon this is going to be an IG-hit!
- Next up, the Enchanted Bridge a looming 7.7-metres tall display that is illuminated by 100,000 LED lights, making it a captivating sight to behold.
