Gardens by the Bay’s Christmas floral display opened late last month but it isn’t too late to smell the roses! 

Named Poinsettia Wishes, the display features larger-than-life sweet treats such as a candied apple Christmas carriage and giant candy canes. There are also adorable gingerbread decorations and festive plants such as poinsettias, cyclamens and real Christmas trees. 

The floral display is located at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome and opens daily from 9am to 9pm until Jan 3 next year.

2. Say hello to Eevee

Taking place exclusively on this weekend and next, the Eevees will be marching and dancing for 30 minutes against the sunset at Palawan Green. There will be two shows nightly where all guests must be fully vaccinated or present a valid Pre-Event Testing Exemption Notice to watch the parades.

Tickets have to be purchased beforehand through Sentosa’s Telegram chatbot or online.
