Illumination and Enchantment
Taking place on a massive fairground, Christmas Wonderland is home to unforgettable sights and Yule-themed extravaganzas.

St. Nick’s Square—the fairground’s largest zone— is undoubtedly the highlight of the event.

Be mesmerised by the 10m tall Whimsical Windmill at Gingerbread Grove and feast your eyes on the 250 candy-cane-shaped decorations surrounding it, or snap a selfie at the Walk of Lights, a 50-metre long tunnel illuminated by over 50,000 LED lights.
As part of the celebrations, Gardens by the Bay’s iconic SuperTrees will be holding a special festive edition of the Garden Rhapsody light and sound show, a spectacle that’s bound to enchant and captivate.
