Keeping the entire family entertained during the break can feel like a full-time job. If you're looking to add a little extra sparkle to your holiday season, we’ve teamed up with Resort World Sentosa to serve up some of the biggest events around Singapore to level up your next adventure. From family-friendly winter wonderlands to sleek beach parties for you and your crew, summer is definitely heating up around town.

Here are five of the best things to do around Singapore this festive season.

A Universal Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year once again at Universal Studios with the halls decked from head to mistletoe in festive delight. The little ones can experience the new Trolls-ific Christmas or discover Santa’s secret North Pole Headquarters in the Jolly Jet Pack flying vehicle.

Every evening, the headquarters play host to a spellbinding performance of the Worldwide Institute Of Santa’s Helpers (also known as the WISH crew) where they’re desperate to ensure that every good little child’s wish is fulfilled in time for the big day. With an endless slew of live music, dancing and even some sneaky snowfall, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped right into one of those magical Christmas films you’ve watched time and time again.

Candlelight Christmas

For a completely romantic night out or whimsy experience for the family, head to an installment of Candlelight at S.E.A Aquarium . Here, you’ll be serenaded by some of Singapore’s most talented musicians to the backdrop of the curious marine life floating majestically to the symphony of sounds.

Cast your gaze upon the celestial allure of the Superstar Archway Structures, venture into the whimsy Bunnyverse with the little ones, before beholding the majestic Christmas Tree of Wonders—an immersive 10-metre high masterpiece that completely enchants kids big and small. You can also catch a mesmerising performance of the Superstar Spectacular visual odyssey tracing the path of a shooting star through the cosmos of Christmas every evening.

A Christmas Oddysea 

Singapore’s most breathtaking marine haven S.E.A Aquarium has teamed up with Superhero Me this year. The neurodiverse, multidisciplinary collective highlights the talent of five incredible local artists and their collaborators as they re-imagine a Christmas home for these nautical creatures. A Christmas Oddysea features all sorts of underwater wonders, from vibrant installations to playful illustrations. This kaleidoscope of colour is a magical experience for animal and art lovers alike, showcasing the beauty of our diversity and unique creative minds.
