Christmas at part of Orchard Road....

shopping in Singapore

Despite the crowd which reminds me of shopping districts of Tokyo, I always think going to Orchard Road during the Christmas season is a treat for all. I love festive seasons and it is pretty much well known that Orchard Road lights up most prettily during Christmas.

While you cannot see any snow glistening or sleigh bells ringing in sunny Singapore during Christmas,  the main shopping street of Orchard Road is decked up in it's best to create an enchanting wonderland. 


Shopping Singapore

Join me here as I took a short trip down Orchard Road on the evening/ night I stayed over in Singapore , which was just after my cruise on the Costa Victoria. It was a choice as I wanted to share with my little girl the feeling of Christmas . But since I was only staying one night in Singapore, everything was pretty rushed as I tried to squeeze in as much as I can into our 1 day and 1 night itinerary in Singapore..

Our little trip here on Orchard Road began from alighting from the Orchard MRT on the North South Line, and when we came up to Orchard Road, it was from ION Orchard...

Orchard Road Christmas 2014

The ION Orchard's theme for this year was "Make Christmas last longer then a Sugar Rush"

Ngee Ann City , one of my favourite malls along Orchard Road which I can never resist a visit every time I am in Singapore had a yummilicious Christmas tree made our of macaroons!!!

Across the road at the Paragon, their theme was Discover the Magical Christmas at Paragon... there was a lovely huge Christmas tree outside in green with golden reindeers prancing around it and lovely baubles lined in ribbon form around the Christmas tree

The Atria's theme was "WAnt the world (again) this Christmas " . It was bedecked in silver ribbon bows outside...


The Robinson's had a lovely starry Christmas tree...


And at 313Somerset, adjoining the Orchard Central, we came across the Nutcracker's Lodge, which my little girl found fascinating as well... The theme was "Discover magic in the little moments together" and in the nutcracker world....with lots of purple in play...




Orchard Central's theme was Christmas Dreamland -Escape to a place of Christmas Magic where pink, gold, unicorns and fairies ruled. My little girl was definitely enthralled by the decorations here...





We made a wish at the wishing well....

and petted some pink and white unicorns around the mall...

Across the road,  Centrepoint's theme was "all your Christmas shopping leads to Paris" thus a part Christmas tree and part Eiffel Tower entrance. I did not go in the mall.. only admired it from across the street from the Orchard Central.



I did not have the opportunity to walk down all of the two-kilometre long Orchard Road later in the night but it is said to be decked out in  and elegant show lighting hues of blue and white.

We left Orchard Road from Orchard Central via the Somerset MRT to our next destination... Gardens by the Bay...
