Singapore's Best Christmas Trees

Purple, blue, red, white, gold and green.
In different colors, they can be seen.
We went around searching for the best.
Oh won't you help us find the rest?

It's the most colorful time of the year once again. The Christmas spirit is in the air and the festive mood is just contagious. More so at Orchard Road and Scotts Road, which are splendidly decorated with festive lights strung across the streets from building to building that make it livelier than ever. At least in this part of town, it's rare to find a standing structure left unadorned with any kind of embellishment. Everywhere your head turns, you're sure to find a mall festooned with sparkling objects, or a hotel infused with dazzling decorations or an office building bathed in colored lights.

We've being going around Singapore looking for the best Christmas trees. Here's our list.

Paragon - definitely artistic

Christmas Spectacular the sign says. We have to agree. The adjective could be used to describe their tree as well.

Vivo City - definitely the tallest

It would have been picture perfect with the sun going down and the Christmas lights illuminated. But it's almost impossible to get a shot without somebody in the frame -- everybody's out to have their photos taken with this giant tree in the background.

Central - definitely elegant

It's neither too huge nor too flashy. It's simply elegant.

UOB Plaza - definitely charming

The toy soldiers did it.

Raffles City - definitely striking

Bright and tall. Now that's a Christmas tree!

Takashimaya - definitely chic

Oh yes, the term could be applied to Christmas trees as well. Here's proof. Takashimaya does it year after year.

Bugis Junction - definitely enchanting

A Christmas tree in the shape of an elf's hat atop a carousel? Who would've thought... Well, someone obviously did. Kudos!

Suntec City Mall - definitely unique

Hanging Christmas trees surrounding a similarly hanging giant wreath. They're one of a kind.

HarbourFront - definitely fun and creative

Tampines Mall - definitely star-studded

One Raffles Quay - definitely traditional

Plaza Singapura

Mount Faber - definitely resourceful

Now there's a reason why we took a picture of that tower. It turns out to have been dressed to serve as a Christmas tree at night. From afar, we wouldn't have been able to guess.

The photo doesn't do it much justice. Guess we'll be dropping by again sometime soon.


The space below is reserved for those that are not as spectacular but deserve some attention.

Shop til you drop. That's what every singaporean girl will say. To select my choices, I sometimes visit http://www.visitors.sg/singapore-shopping.asp for new shopping destination ideas.
