Christmas Wonderland @ Gardens by the Bay

 

 

Everywhere is lighting up, and goes without saying, but the Gardens by the Bay is not excused from the lights. The Christmas Wonderland is an annual event of the Gardens, and this year’s rendition will include the largest luminarie mirror maze in Southeast Asia, as well as magical performances put up by world-class illusionist Rob Lake. Also, the favourites are back, with the outdoor skating rink, “snowfall”, carnival games and rides! Make sure not to miss out the Christmas markets selling hand-crafted gifts and festive grubs! You’re going to be there for a long while, so make sure to keep yourself satiated!

Hello, One Piece

 

Fans of the long-running anime series will jump at the chance at this. This exhibition presents the original illustrations of Eiichiro Oda, the manga artist of One Piece and allows fans to get up close and personal with a replica of his trusty work desk that has brought us the series since 1997. There is also a unique Virtual Reality Experience available for fans to take a look into the mind of Oda! And if the original illustrations of Oda are not enough, there will be a merchandise shop that stocks original One Piece merchandise so that you can bring home your personal One Piece!

ZoukOut 2018

Whether you’re a fan of house, trance, big room music, there is definitely something for you.
