Chinese New Year is less than two weeks away and preparations for the festivities are in full swing.

This means most places in Singapore are decked out in festive decorations — dragon-themed decor specifically — as 2024 is the Year of the Dragon.

A large dragon diorama was recently set up at Chinatown, drawing some unique comparisons.

Similarly, Marina Bay Sands is celebrating the Year of the Dragon, with a spectacular exhibit hanging from the ceilings of The Shoppes.

Visitors to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands can marvel at the huge turquoise dragon coiling above them, with  a pearl clutched in one claw.

Videos posted on Chinese social media platform Xiaohongshu offered a glimpse into the process of putting the dragon together. Workers were filmed carrying part of its torso down an escalator.

A smaller dragon sculpture can also be found at the hotel lobby.
