It’s already the last week of November and the festive season and year-end holidays are upon us! 

While we might not get to travel overseas this year (unless you’re heading to Hong Kong) or enjoy a nice plane ride, there are still plenty of things to do in Singapore. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Nov 27 to 29):

1. Celebrate Christmas at Changi Airport

Changi Airport looks set to rival Orchard Road for being the place-to-be for Christmas decorations, with the Changi Festive Village kicking off in full swing. 

There is a 16m-tall Christmas tree at Jewel’s Shiseido Forest Valley, coupled with hourly snow falls in Jewel’s indoor garden and Canopy Park. You can also immerse yourself in some winter wonderland fun at T3 Departure Hall, where you can build a snowman and slide down a 12m-long snow luge.

2. Bring your dog out

Woof Woof! Attention all dog owners, there is a new dog run in Singapore. At 0.2ha, it is the largest of its kind in the east of Singapore, giving your dog ample space to roam around freely. The dog run, opened by the National Parks Board, is located at Parkland Green in East Coast Park. 

Additionally, there is also a bird perch next to the dog run that provides bird owners a space to showcase their trained birds.

3. Eat some fire ramen

Wanna watch your ramen be set on fire? Yes, we’re not kidding! Menbaka Fire Ramen, is famous for their fire ramens where chefs will ignite negi oil to create a “tall fire” before pouring it over your ramen. 

Menbaka Fire Ramen opened their first outlet outside of Japan earlier this week at Cineleisure Orchard, with a special one-for-one promotion for all fire ramens just for this weekend. 

The normal price of a fire ramen starts from $16.90. Find out more here.

4. Admire some LEGO installations

Highlights include a 20-metre and 15-metre Rock & Roller Coaster at Plaza Singapura and Junction 8 respectively. You can also catch Gingerbread Man and Santa Claus under a LEGO Christmas tree carousel at Bugis Junction. 

Keep a look out for festive cashbacks and a spend-and-win draw, with cars to be won too. Read more here.

5. Go on a hike at Lornie Nature Corridor

Calling all hikers and outdoor lovers! As part of the National Parks Board’s “Rewilding Plan” to introduce more naturalistic landscapes, Lornie Nature Corridor opened last weekend. 

The entire stretch is 10km long and links Kheam Hock Road to Upper Thomson Road. You can also look out for native tree species planted along the Lornie Nature Corridor such as the Jelutong, Singapore Durian and Red Dhup.
