Christmas is one of the most important festivals in Singapore and is celebrated with much gusto. The busy Orchard Road is transformed into a winter wonderland lit up with lively Christmas decorations and bedecked shop windows. While the weather remains warm and sunny, the locals get fully into the Christmas spirit by creating fake snow and exchanging presents with loved ones.

Restaurants like Edge, Zafferano and Kwee Zeen offer elaborate menus and festive buffets throughout the season.
