This Christmas, Capitol Singapore & CHIJMES have a European-themed Christmas Market, with singing tree, skating rink, snowfall & laser projection show!


I am always a sucker for a good bit of festive cheer, especially when that centres around the Christmas markets in Europe. There's always something magical about them - the stalls, the food, the music, the activities and of course, the atmosphere that makes it all seem so Christmassy.

But there's no need to fly to Europe to experience that bit of Christmas market magic because this Christmas, Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES will be bringing it to you... right here in Singapore!

From 6 to 24 December 2019, revel in Christmas festivities at Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES, both sited in the vibrant downtown Civic District and merely a stone’s throw apart.

Capitol Singapore will be transforming into a festive wonderland, one of the largest European-inspired Christmas Markets in Singapore in fact and complete with a singing tree and skating rink!

CHIJMES, on the other hand, welcomes visitors to an Instagram Wonderland with festive art installations and laser projection shows featuring Christmas scenes!

So ready those cameras, rev up the festive spirit and bring the family down to Capitol Singapore and CHIJMES for that unparalleled Christmas experience. Here's what to expect:
