Christmas in Singapore

For those new to Singapore, 
visiting or even those that have been here for years
a reminder that LIGHTS UP this year is on 
November 20.
Christmas celebrations begin early in Singapore with the much-anticipated Christmas Light-Up starting in November. Now in its 27th year, the Christmas Light-Up theme varies every year and this year’s theme is ‘A Starlit Christmas’. 

On 20 November, witness President S R Nathan switch on the magnificent lights at the Switch On Ceremony outside ION Orchard and be mesmerised by the twinkling star-shaped lights adorning the entire stretch of Orchard Road.

The dazzling Christmas Light-Up is best enjoyed by cruising along Orchard Road at night and tourists will be able to do just that by hopping onto the open-top bus rides plying the shopping strip. What’s more, the open-top bus offers a prime spot for plenty of photo opportunities of the Light Up and memories to bring home.

My blog posting about Christmas along Orchard Road for 2009 is HERE and well worth looking at so you will have an idea of what to expect this year!
I noticed yesterday that the theme is pink from Tanglin through to blue along the centre area and changes to purple as you get towards the Mandarin.
This year is going to be just as fabulous as the past 3 years that we have seen here.
