Its getting cold…in Europe, not in the Tropics though. Although we have wonderful Christmas music, Christmas decoration and a lot of Christmas Sales to get your Christmas presents, there is no real Christmas atmosphere here because of the missing Christmas weather.
Although you could buy tons and tons of 1$ icecream at every corner, there wont be enough to cool down the temperature here to a nice zero degrees.
But there is help, for everybody in Singapore who definitely doesn’t want to miss his usual Christmas atmosphere in Singapore, here are the places where you will be able to see your breath evaporating in nice white fog just in front of you.
1. Snowboarding at Snow City
Every city or country that counts itself as one of the “To Be” places these days has one. An artificial giant ski/snow dome, where you can freeze your but off even if its 30 degrees outside.
SnowCity is the Singapore version and besides skiing/snowboarding you can just go there, pay a lower entry fee and have some fun in the snow. Only disadvantage is the location, far away from the city but still reachable.
