While the New York Times Square is one of the most popular and loved venues during Christmas, the Christmas tree is in its full glory, but little do people know the Christmas is a great time for you to plan a trip with friends or family members. The streets of the city are almost transformed into a fairy tale, and it might become a tad bit difficult for you to distinguish magic from reality.

When the list of prominent festivals in Singapore is addressed, there is no possible way that you can skip the Chinese New Year from the list. If you wish to describe this festival in one word, it can only be summed up by the word Vibrant. While many Chinese festivals are celebrated in Singapore, but the Chinese New Year is the most special and cherished one. For a fortnight, the whole city is turned into a doll house with extravagant decorations. The decorations almost present you with the illusion that you are in China. Other than this, the night markets and temples have a mystical charm that you just cannot miss out on if you intend to visit Singapore around mid-January.

The local version of Eid is the Hari Raya. This festival is highly popular all over Singapore because of the religious beliefs. It is a celebration after fasting in the month of Ramadan for a month. However, if you wish to just enjoy the food and the aesthetics, it is highly recommended that you should not miss out on the highly decorated bazaar at the Sultan Mosque.
