Christmas at Orchard Road, Singapore

Ever since I was young it has always been my dream to go to Singapore in December to soak in the Christmas celebration. People have always told me how beautiful Orchard Road is in December with the lights fully lit up beautifully.

This year, my dream came true as Darling booked the hotel right smack in Orchard Road for our Singapore trip this time around. We stayed in Mandarin Orchard, that links to Mandarin Gallery and it is situated right in the hustle and bustle of the ever so lively Orchard Road, Singapore.

Orchard Road, Singapore.

There seems to be more cars in Singapore as compared to two years ago when we last stepped foot here.

There are many Christmas trees lined up along Orchard Road but this caught our eyes! A Ferrero Rocher Christmas tree! Oh my, my oh my!

Look how beautiful the entire street is. But I still prefer the street lightings in Sunway, Malaysia though :P

Our hotel is just next to Takashimaya and they have lovely Christmas decor too.

So what do you think? Do you think the decor in Orchard Road lives up to its expectation? My vote goes to the streets of Sunway anytime! And oh, in case you want to join in the Christmas fun in Orchard Road, this is what you have to go through:

People mountain, people sea!

And oh another thing! Do you know that they switched off the lightings at 12 midnight? Yep, they do!

    Its my dream too to visit orchard road at Christmas. We plan to go next week, but as my boy is on a recovery after a viral fever last week, we have to call it off. Maybe next year bah…

    Aiyo Andrew. I think if you go next week will be even worse with the street performances coming out full forced. The crowd will be crazy!

    Do they switch off the lights because they wanna conserve energy?
    I like this idea! :D

    Always hear people said Singapore Orchard Road has the best Christmas decor. Now you saw it yourself, you can justify the Christmas decor yourself. Great!

    This year too, my girls got to see different Christmas decors in several malls at KL.
