A festive Friday evening at Christmas Wonderland and Poinsettia Wishes 2021.

My “final” Christmas festive post for 2021, and it’s of course about the illuminated playground happening at Singapore’s southern tip.

Christmas Wonderland 2021! Happening at Gardens by the Bay once again and for so many Singaporeans, the magical place to be this December.

The same goes for Poinsettia Wishes, the signature year-end display of the Flower Dome. With this year’s theme that of sweets and traditional Christmas confectionery.

To share, I visited last evening and it was crowded! My timing coincided with the official opening too and so there were all sorts of media workers about the grounds.

Didn’t hamper the joy of my visit, though. Flower Dome was also pretty serene when I went in.

Anyway, here are the displays for this year! Before I begin, allow me to say I’m heartened by how more food and festive stores have returned to Christmas Wonderland.

It’s still a far cry from what was put up in previous years. But at the very least, it signals a slow return to normalcy. New COVID variant, or not.

Gardens by the Bay Christmas Wonderland 2021

Like last year, Christmas Wonderland 2021 mainly takes place at the Supertree Grove, with a huge Italian Spalliera as the main showpiece.

It’s compact and easy to enjoy. With a timed entry system, crowds are also, well, moderate and you wouldn’t have to wait too long for anything. (Once you manage to enter the festive grounds, that is)

There is even a beer garden! Right next to the illuminated Enchanted Bridge set-piece, this will be for some visitors, the perfect end to a visit.

The Walk of Stars. This starry tunnel is at the edge of the festive grounds and if you’re lucky enough to enter without other visitors, it’s an uplifting experience.

Poinsettia Wishes 2021

After showcasing famous Scandinavian landmarks for two years, the theme for Poinsettia Wishes has switched to that of traditional Christmas confectionery and sweets.

It’s a yummy change; no pun intended. 🙂 While the visual impact isn’t as breathtaking as last year, walking into the Flower Dome is like visiting a fantasy candy land.

The miniature Ferris Wheel at the heart of it all is quite the showpiece too.
