Round up of Christmas Decorations in Singapore for 2018, excluding Orchard Road.

“Hopping back” to Singapore for the moment to wrap up my feature of Christmas Decorations in Singapore 2018.

As mentioned in my other post, this year’s Disney Magical Moments at Orchard Road is a bit of hit and miss, with me not alone with this opinion.

Fortunately, the rest of Singapore retained the traditional approach, with fairly respectable overall results. For the moment, the weather is also still hot and humid, and on particularly warm days, it seriously still doesn’t feel very festive, or should I say, Christmas-y.

But I think there’s no mistake anywhere that the countdown to Christmas has begun. And with that, the countdown to a brand new year too.

A. Shopping Malls

Good ol’ Tanglin Mall can always be counted on for a majestic and fun Christmas display. This year’s set is titled Christmas Winterland.
Magical Starlight Garden over at City Square Mall. This is part of their Barney’s Magical Christmas celebration.
AMK Hub with their usual mini fun-fair. Not elaborate but definitely “practical.” And surely well-loved by the kids staying in Ang Mo Kio.
Junction 8’s spacey theme for this year’s Yuletide.

Update Dec 21, 2018

Tanglin Mall Christmas Winterland Snowfall 2018.

I have to give special mention to Tanglin Mall’s artificial snowfall for this year. No, not snowfall. The BLIZZARD. This was absolutely insane, with the amount of foam released and the pulsating disco Christmas music and the shrieking kids. Might have been some sort of foam-induced positive ions, but I felt terribly happy just by watching.

B. A Wizarding World Holiday at Changi Airport

As a Potterhead for almost 20 years, I’m thrilled by Singapore Changi Airport’s decision to use Potter magic for their theme this Christmas. It felt great being surrounded by Harry Potter icons, right after watching the latest Fantastic Beast movie.

Diagon Alley in the middle of Terminal 3! Changi Airport is nowadays a must-visit for Christmas Decorations in Singapore, yes?
Storefront for the ever-popular Honeydukes. If only actual Fizzing Whizzbees are sold here!
Hogswart Express all ready for departure.
Harry Potter merchandise, and a question from me to you. Who’s the better wizarding geek? Harry or Newt?

C. Gardens by the Bay Christmas Wonderland 2019

Gardens’ Christmas Wonderland 2018 will win the trophy for best Christmas decoration in Singapore in 2018, if there’s such a competition. The concept and grounds are the same as last year, but sensible enhancements here and there made my visit truly enjoyable. I particularly love the serene section at the Meadow.

The main luminarie display for this year. For me, the switch to warmer lighting accentuated the romanticism in the air.
The European-style Christmas village. Pretty decent mix of (hipster) food and merchandise.
Open-air dining area near the Supertree Grove.
Santa’s Grotto over at the Meadow. Loved the huge animated screen that is the entrance façade. Definitely also appreciated the chilly interior after the sweaty/humid walk outside.
Skating under the stars! I’d consider this to be the most beautiful attraction of Christmas Wonderland 2018. Outdoor night-time skating is now a permanent fixture of Christmas decorations in Singapore, hmm?

How would you rate Christmas Decorations in Singapore for 2018?
