The gardens come alive with night-time illuminations, and Santa Claus roams the streets bustling with Christmas markets.

You won't need to head over to Finland to pay a visit to Santa. Here he is, waiting for you in Singapore!

Festive market
It is the place to experience a traditional European Christmas market. Wink – and you are in Hyde Park in London or strolling along Champs-Élysées in Paris.
