6 Must-Dos @ Christmas Wonderland 2017
Singapore’s biggest annual yuletide fair – Christmas Wonderland – returns for its fourth edition in December to celebrate the joy and magic of Christmas in the tropics.
Here are 6 things not to miss:
1. The Magnificent Luminarie Sculptures
Inspired by 17th and 18th century Baroque architecture, the 80 intricate light installations are handmade with Italian white wood by skilled craftsmen. Fitted with 252,000 multi-hued bulbs, the luminarie sculptures range from arches to solo pieces. Look out for the Spalliera, Southeast Asia’s tallest luminarie, where you can also experience “snow” during Blizzard Time.
2. Skate Under The Stars

Skate at the 240sqm outdoor synthetic Skating Rink. Brought in from Switzerland, the rink is the biggest one in Singapore.
