Experience a feast for the senses at the Gardens this Christmas!
The first of its kind in Southeast Asia, the Christmas Wonderland is set to redefine the experience of celebrating the festivities in the tropics. Nestled in Singapore’s award-winning Gardens by the Bay, this magical light-up experience promises to delight visitors from near and far.
Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by the Bay will feature a myriad of firsts, including the debut showcase of the spellbinding Luminarie light sculptures specially handcrafted and flown in from Italy, an impressive two-century-old Spiegeltent from the Netherlands, a beautifully illuminated Casa Armonica gazebo, and a European-style Festive Market.
Spiegeltent, a travelling ‘mirror tent’ from the Netherlands, making its first appearance in Asia. Originally built in the late 19th and 20th century, only a handful remain in existence. Made of 1000 pieces of wood, canvas, exquisitely decorated mirrors and stained glass, the enchanting tent will present a unique dining experience for visitors.
The Spiegeltent will open from 5pm to midnight daily.
