As the holiday season approaches, the Lion City transforms into a dazzling wonderland, offering an array of delightful experiences that captivate locals and tourists alike. And there are not many places more enchanting than the resplendent integrated resort Marina Bay Sands.
This festive season, the hotel, dining and shopping destination invites visitors to immerse themselves in the magic of Christmas and welcome the New Year with fascinating attractions. From the breathtaking views at the SkyPark Observation Deck to the mesmerising world of the Digital Light Canvas and the charming sampan rides along the canal running through The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, it promises an unforgettable celebration for all.
Here’s what you can look forward to during your visit:
Panoramic views from the SkyPark Observation Deck
Perched 56 storeys above the cityscape, the SkyPark Observation Deck at Marina Bay Sands offers spectacular views of Singapore’s skyline. As the sun sets and the city lights come to life, the SkyPark becomes a magical vantage point to witness the twinkling lights of downtown and soak in the city’s pulsating energy.
As you take in views of the city, look out for distinctive landmarks like the Singapore Flyer, the Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay and the glittering Marina Bay district. The SkyPark Observation Deck is the perfect place to capture breathtaking photographs, creating lasting memories of the holiday season. For a unique viewing experience, you can opt for Sunset in the Sky, which offers you priority access to the Observation Deck via a private entry point, with dedicated seating areas as well as champagne and chocolates by Wolfgang Puck and bring home a personalized photobook.
Spellbinding art with the Digital Light Canvas by teamLab
Step into a mesmerising virtual-reality world with the Digital Light Canvas, an interactive art installation located at The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Offering fun for the whole family, the Digital Light Canvas combines technology and art to create a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.
This unique attraction features a vast interactive floor adorned with countless LED lights that respond to the movement of visitors, creating a dazzling display of colours and patterns. Centred around the theme of the “digital jungle”, you’ll get to engage with the installation by creating your own unique flora and fauna. You can even turn your drawings into souvenirs that you can take home with you! Your light art can be made into merchandise like tin badges, T-shirts and tote bags, adding a personal touch to the celebration.
This December, Digital Light Canvas transforms into a magical experience, featuring a festive exhibit with an interactive light installation aglow with a giant luminous Christmas tree. Ticket holders can interact with the art installation and customise the tree by using their smartphones to scan and select their preferred decorative pieces. This will be translated into large, three-dimensional ornaments that will adorn the digital Christmas tree.
A tranquil waterway journey along the canal
For a truly memorable festive experience, hop on a sampan ride along the canal that runs through The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Modelled after the traditional Chinese and Malay wooden boat, the sampan offers a picture-perfect journey through the beautifully landscaped canal, surrounded by the architectural wonders of the sprawling shopping mall.
During the Christmas season, the canal is adorned with festive decorations, creating a picturesque setting for the sampan rides. The gentle movement of the boat combined with the soothing sound of water makes it easy to forget you’re in the middle of the bustling city. Whether you’re visiting Marina Bay Sands as a couple or with friends and family, the sampan ride is the perfect way to spend quality time with loved ones during the holiday season.
