As the year comes to an end, it’s time to wind down and enjoy the upcoming festive celebrations! With the season of giving and well-wishes ahead of us, head on down to Asia’s favourite playground, Sentosa to soak up the fun together with your family and friends!
There are creative handicrafts, kids pizza-making, live bands performances, and the unconventional Christmas trees along Sentosa Boardwalk designed by students from Temasek Polytechnic to help raise funds for the needy. Don’t miss as the iconic Sentosa Merlion comes alive and “dance” into the night with 3D video mapping on its facade. We spent a fun-filled, leisurely evening last Sunday at the Sentosa PLAYcation and would love to bring Dana’s Aussie cousins there when they visit us in December!
