Christmas is a time for joy and celebration.

The festival is also a time for bright, glitzy, eye-catching displays to attract shoppers.

Disney Christmas lights transform Orchard Road into magical-looking street

Disney Tsum Tsums at Gardens by the Bay for Christmas from Nov. 2, 2018 – Jan. 6, 2019

Christmas village at Ngee Ann City has amusement park rides & F&B booths now till Dec. 26, 2018

Outdoor skating rink with giant Christmas tree in VivoCity from Dec. 7 – 25, skate session from S$12

Resorts World Genting (RWG), originally Genting Highlands Resort, might have did just that with their new Christmas decorations.

Named “Wintry Santorini Above the Clouds”, the display at the SkyAtrium in SkyAvenue Mall boasts a mini Santorini, complete with its iconic blue-accented white buildings.

You can see some of the inspiration here.

Snow at this Santorini

While it doesn’t often snow during winter at the real Santorini in Greece, the one at Resorts World Genting has some artificial snow for your enjoyment.

Facebook user Steve WK Chai managed to capture the soft falling ‘snow’ at the mini Santorini (it rhymes).

According to RWG, the timings for the snowfall are as follows (subject to change):


The resort has other activities lined up too, including an appearance by everyone’s favourite Santa Claus.

Here’s another unrelated Santa Claus for you to get into the holiday spirit.

Pokémon Festival

Pokémon fans are in for a treat too.

According to RWG, from December 1 this year to February 28 next year, visitors can take pictures with Pokémon figurines, see the tallest Pokémon Christmas tree in the world, and buy loads of Pokémon merchandise.  

They can even catch a parade of dancing Pikachu.

Before you book your ticket to Malaysia though, here’s one that you can catch right here in Singapore.
