The weather outside’s not frightful, and my dear, the scene’s delightful.
This is Orchard Road in Singapore — a shopping mecca that puts on spectacular displays of holiday decoration that could rival the festivity of the North Pole. From what I understand, the malls along Orchard Road compete for the best decoration display. I took what pictures I could as the displays went up. My favorite is shown above, but it was the entirety of the Christmas decoration everywhere that made the whole thing special.
Care to choose a favorite scene?
too hard to choose a favourite–they are all wonderful–if I had to it would be the first one
Yes, they were very pretty, but hard to photograph.
you did a great job
Thanks for sharing Jules!
I wish you guys could have been there with me to see it for yourselves.
Charlie Brown Cafe… Cute
I liked that, too. I wondered if they erected a big purple tree there on purpose, but thought if they were going to do that, surely they would have put a pink aluminum one there instead.
Love the first picture with those trees! But then all the pictures look great too so I can’t really choose. The malls here have started decorating too but it’s apparent Singapore wins the contest on this. 😉
I loved the trees, too. So pretty at night.
Orchard Road is full of festive sights. The lights, the colors just brings that sense of fun and joy the holidays brings. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Merry Christmas to you and your family as well!
I’ve never really pondered how other countries celebrate Christmas but this is cool to see in Singapore. I have a Charlie Brown tree in the closet I should bust out for the rest of the month.
Yes! Bust it out! If not now, when??
Great photos! The first one is so interesting: the modern Christmas trees idea is quite fun and celebratory!
It was all very modern and chic. There were no real trees or greenery that I saw, but it was all so fitting for Orchard Road.
Merry Christmas says Orchard Road. 🙂 Nice snaps. Thanks for sharing.
The last two are near replicas of the scenes around the Bangkok malls 🙂
I know. I saw your pictures on your blog and immediately thought of these.
Juliann, we spent the holidays in Asia last year, and I was impressed by the lovely lights throughout the region. Your photos transported me back to that wonderful trip; thank you! How long have you been in Singapore?
I just got back a couple weeks ago. I was there on a business trip, but hope to go back again with my family so that we can explore even more.
