Christmas and New Year is a time to spend happy moments with your loved ones and enjoy new experiences.
In the spirit of this year-end season, we invite you to recharge and celebrate these festive moments in Singapore, filled with special themed events, dazzling lights and exclusive privileges.
Be amazed by how Singapore gets transformed into a shimmering kaleidoscope of lights and sounds, where luxurious shopping belts of Orchard Road and Marina Bay are all decked out in the most creative and exuberant street decor.
Christmas in the Tropics is an umbrella event which gives visitors and residents alike the chance to usher in the new year in a variety of different locations, all preceded by magical parades of art, fireworks, Christmas light-ups, opportunities to win fabulous prizes, superb discounts at world-renowned stores and take-home memories that will last well beyond next Christmas too! Extraordinary highlights include the one-of-a-kind art on display in the elephant parade, the Standard Chartered Marathon, nightly passes of beautifully decorated floats, and superb offers for tourists by Global Blue, Premier Tax, and VISA @ Orchard Promotion.
Additionally, long-reigning superclub Zouk will be presenting a 14-hour dance extravaganza, “One World, One Music, One Tribe, One Dance” at ZoukOut 2011, featuring world-class acts that span house, techno, trance, hip-hop and electro, and has previously seen the likes of Carl Cox, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Sasha, David Guetta and other international acts.
Ms Ashlynn Loo, Area Director, Singapore Tourism Board, Thailand and Myanmar, said, “Singapore has garnered a reputation as one of the must-visit international Christmas destinations. This season’s Christmas in the Tropics features a billing of events to top all previous years. Guests will love to walk down endless parades of Christmas lights, enjoying live performances, and taking in the warmth, charm and atmosphere of a Christmas festival like nothing they have ever seen before.”
Setting off this exotic grotto of events, the Marina Bay Sands will also be presenting a Broadway musical entitled, “WICKED”; the untold story of the witches of Oz! When WICKED opened on Broadway, it worked its magic on critics and audiences alike. Winner of 35 major awards including a Grammy, three Tony Awards and six Helpmann Awards including Best Musical, WICKED has been described as the “Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly.
Come visit Singapore during this year-end! Counting down to a sensational 2012 with joy, new hopes and vigour has never been more fun!
