Christmas Decorations from Orchard Road to Bras Basah Road

Towards the year end, our streets will be decorated with fairy lights from Tanglin Road to Orchard Road to Bras Basah Road and finally end in Raffles Link.
Last year, the theme for the decoration was Christmas in Fairyland. This year theme is Sweet Christmas in Singapore, so you can expect sweets and candy in the decorations.

This stretch of the road is Orchard Road and it was the peak hour where many office people were heading home and that explained the high volume of traffic in the above photo. Same secenario when weekend comes and people came in cars and public transport to shop...lol

Now you can compare the day and night views of the christmas decorations along the streets.

This is Bras Basah Road, which is quieter than Orchard Road and lesser tall buildings and malls.

It was more pleasant to take a stroll and admire the lights at Bras Basah Road than Orchard Road if you want some peace and romantic moments.

I enjoyed my walk along Bras Basah Road. Did you enjoyed the little trip here?

This year decorations were a bit bare compared with last year decorations in Orchard Road. But I have yet gone to the heart of Orchard Road to take more christmas photos, hope I would not be disappointed.

I didn't know about Bras Basah Road. Thanks for introducing it. It has been many years since I was down in Singapore for Christmas. Orchard Road has always been the centre of attraction!

Happy SkyWatch Friday, Alice.
