Only in Singapore: White Christmas in the Tropics

There is a place in Singapore where it Winter Wonderland Christmas in Tropical Singaporesnows in December. It sits on a hilltop where the treetops glisten and the children listen to hear sleigh bells in the snow, transforming a part of Singapore into a winter wonderland where Christmas is brought to life to magical effect.

Perched on the hill of Mount Faber in Central Singapore, The Jewel Box is an iconic Singapore theme park specially known for its simulated snowfall. Every Christmas since 2006, the Jewel Box Singapore blankets a portion of Mount Faber with snows and Christmas lights to re-create a different and unique Singapore Christmas.

Originally a family recreation center, The Jewel Box has enthralled Singapore visitors with novelties like the Sky Dining restaurant and The Jewel Christmas Light Show. This Christmas, The Jewel Box is set to frost the beauty of Christmas once again with a simulated snowfall at the Altivo and Faber Rock cafes in Mount Faber.

Because The Jewel Box is located on the hilltop of Mount Faber, there is an air of exclusivity in the area. But do not think that Mount Faber, like a winter Christmas in Singapore, is almost out-of-reach for most Singapore visitors.

The Jewel Box at Mount Faber is only minutes away from the city center of Singapore via cable car. The cable car tower at Mount Faber connects to Harbour Front and Sentosa, forming a triumvirate of Singapore must-sees. The Harbour Front district in Singapore is what makes the Mount Faber accessible for those on a weekend visit in Singapore.Harbour Ville at cable car station in Harbour Front, Singapore

The main artery of the Singapore cable car system is located at the Harbour Front station, connecting the holiday getaways of Singapore to the island’s city center. Also at the Harbour Front is the hotel of the Harbour Ville in Singapore, which for many years now has been serving as jump-off point to the different Singapore getaways like the Sentosa and the Mount Faber.

The Harbour Ville hotel in Singapore is a small boutique hotel that offers low-priced rooms to Singapore visitors. Fashionably cheap and well-placed, the Singapore hotel of the Harbour Ville is often every traveler’s gateway to various Singapore vacations.

With Mount Faber, Singapore visitors get a taste of high-rise living, Singapore style. At Sentosa it’s about the beach. At Harbour Front it’s about the commercial districts and urban centers of Singapore. The best place to feel the warmth of Christmas.
