What To Expect

Celebrate Christmas in sunny Singapore! From November 22nd to December 30th, the Big Bus Singapore Festive Tour will depart nightly from the BIG BUS & DUCK Tourist Hub at Suntec City.

Hop on an open-top, double-decker bus and cruise past iconic landmarks like the Singapore Flyer and the Esplanade, before driving past City Hall and Fort Canning. As you approach Tanglin Road, get ready to be enthralled by the glittering lights that line the streets of Orchard Road.

Themed “The Greatest Gift”, let the jolly Santa Clauses and rows of gift boxes put you in a festive Yuletide mood. There may not be overhead street lightings this year, but the Christmas mood will not be dampened as there will be bigger and grander lights up on the lamp posts all the way from Tanglin to Somerset. Admire the spectacular lights and be sure to get pictures of the many interactive Christmas decorations lining the streets as well.

If you’re feeling extra festive, a visit to the Great Christmas Village awaits! This year’s village features delicious street food, family-friendly rides, and game booths spreading over 3 locations, running from 23 November to 26 December. End your tour at Paragon Shopping Centre and make your way to *SCAPE, where the village begins. Catch nightly performances, interactive activities, and even Christmas carollers in this year’s village, more than twice the size of last year’s!

Otherwise, stay onboard and enjoy Singapore at night as you go down Bras Basah and back to Suntec City. Take a loop around the world’s largest water fountain – the Fountain of Wealth – for good luck, before bidding your bus captain goodbye.
