Singapore: Orchard Road Turned Into Candy Land For Christmas

SINGAPORE: The Singapore city authorities have turned bustling Orchard Road, the city's thoroughfare and popular tourist belt, into a magical candy land to usher in the Christmas celebrations.

With only less than a week for Christmas (25 Dec), the city authorities especially the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) have illuminated the pavements and sidewalks with huge ice cones, big candies, gumdrops, jelly beans, liquorices, giant dolls and colourfully lighted Christmas trees and booths selling Christmas items.

The celebrations this year, themed "a sweet Christmas in Singapore" is simply a reflection of the rich and vibrant multi-coloured lights in all shapes and sizes that adorn Orchard Road and streets linking to it.

A snow capped arch is erected at the entrance to the Orchard Road, lamp posts draped with colourful strips to make it look like candy canes and old trees lining the streets are gift-wrapped with huge red ribbons. (Bernama)
