Experience dazzling sights of Christmas Wonderland as Singapore’s largest yuletide fair returns to Gardens by the Bay this festive season.

Twice as large as last year’s event, Christmas Wonderland comprises four areas this year, the Christmas Toyland floral display at Flower Dome, Luminarie light sculptures all around the Gardens, Festive Market at Supertree Grove, and The Fairground near the Meadow.

With a theme of toys, this year’s floral display is rather modest, with the only memorable feature being the 11-metre tall pyramid inspired by German wooden carousel.

On certain days, certain elements of the carousel are removed to transform it into a stage for performances. Check the schedule on Gardens by the Bay’s website – you might want to plan your visit to catch a show.

The Fairground

Located closer to the Meadow side of the Gardens, the Fairground brings a few traditional rides and games. Some attractions are at the Supertree Grove area.

It’s like a 10 minute stroll from the Flower Dome. Why not hop on a train? (Charges apply)

Luminarie light sculptures

The real stars of Christmas Wonderland are the enchanting Luminarie lights. This year, the Spalliera – the largest sculpture, surrounds the Cassa Armonica gazebo.

It may not be the best place to experience the Garden Rhapsody Christmas Edition due to the obstructions, but you can take photos like this.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

    Hi dejiki! How big is the snow playground? It looks pretty small from the photograph!

      It is quite small – we were informed it’s 48 square metres, with capacity for 25 visitors.
