Where to go for your festive 'grams this Christmas.

Orchard Road

When it comes to Christmas lights, Orchard Road is a no-brainer for stellar festive installations. Walk the stretch from Orchard to Dhoby Ghaut and you'll be greeted with countless photo opportunities. 

Ion Orchard

Hop aboard the Ion Orchard Express and find yourself transported on a nostalgic train journey, or have your photos taken in front of the towering Pandora christmas tree, glistening in rose gold.

The Centrepoint

Star Wars fan will appreciate the over-the-top installation at The Centrepoint, where you will be flanked by rows of Stormtroopers—with a dramatic soundtrack, of course—as you travel down the aisle. Even our prime minister Mr Lee Hsien Loong approves!

Gardens by the Bay: Christmas Wonderland

Every year, Gardens by the Bay transforms into a Christmas Wonderland—and this year is no different. Capture one of Singapore's main attractions dressed up in glittering lights and carnival fare. If you're lucky, you might be there in time for the foam snow fall.


Neon light installations? We're sold. The night market at Somerset is just brimming with photo opportunities, with witty light art scattered across the space. Did we mention the Instagram-worthy LED balloons?

SK-II Change Destiny Pop-up

Step inside SK-II's duplex installation and you will find yourself transported into an ethereal space. The pop-up features an interactive neon waterfall wall, strings of LED baubles, and a trippy mirrored space—perfect for a series of artistic photos.

Marina Bay Carnival

The latest to join Singapore's list of festive night markets and carnivals, this may be our biggest yet. Inspired the best carnivals in Europe, take a nostalgic moment as you indulge in games, rides, and Instagram-worthy bites. The carousel is everyone's favourite photo spot, though.

Millenia Walk

Embracing one of 2017's biggest trends, Millenia Walk has the term 'Instagram-worthy' captured perfectly with its holographic Christmas tree. The prismatic installation reflects light in the most gorgeous way, and there's more surprises when you step inside.


Another mall that has 2017 all figured out—unicorn food, unicorn hair, and unicorn makeup—JEM has transformed itself into a secret forest where you can meet everyone's favourite mythical creature. Talk about a touch of magic for Christmas.

Universal Studios Singapore

Universal Studios Singapore may be brimming with photo opportunities in itself, but it gets even better for the festive season. With Santa's cottage, Mrs Claus' kitchen, and minions in Christmas hats, it doesn't get more festive than this.
