Jewel Changi Airport Christmas decorations and celebrations 2021.
‘Right, time for another quick pictorial post. Another Christmas-related one too.
Since its opening in 2019, Jewel Changi Airport had been one of my “must-visits” for year-end Christmas illuminations. So far, no visit has been disappointing. Crowded as the complex always was, there were plenty of great opportunities for photos too.
This year is no exception and I headed there with much enthusiasm last evening. Well, hmm, what can I say? The signature huge Christmas tree forming the entrance to the Shiseido Forest Valley is as gorgeous as ever. The special light and sound show was quite the spectacle too, and accompanied by a rousing arrangement of a very traditional carol.
On the other hand … the whole use of world landmarks to grace the festive area was somewhat, ineffective to me? I know this year’s theme is that of experiencing the world at Jewel this festive season, or giving travel-starved Singaporeans a brief illusion of being overseas. But still, the near-complete lack of Christmas ornaments in the central area made everything felt more .. akin to a travel fair?
Actually, I kept thinking, everything is to encourage the use of the VTLs. Celebrating Christmas is … a by the way.
But that’s me being a Grinch; pardon me. I’d be lying too if I say I didn’t find my 20 minutes in the festive area relaxing. Perhaps next year, things will return to more Christmas-y notes.

I should highlight this. Outside of travel landmarks, Jewel is also having a Disney Tsum Tsum Premiums Promotion. Every SGD 50/- spent on a single receipt entitles you to a purchase of a Tsum Tusm premium at SGD 8.90. Details here!
Adorable MOVING Dinosaurs at Terminal 3
With it just a five minutes, travellator walk away, I thought it would be silly not to check out the festive dinosaurs over at Terminal 3.
All displays and light-ups at Jewel and Terminal 3 are ongoing till Jan 3, 2022.
