A 360° View Of The Christmas Wonderland 2016 @ Gardens By The Bay

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Singapore's largest yuletide fair - The Christmas Wonderland 2016 was officially open last night by Minister for National Development & Second Minister for Finance - Mr Lawrence Wong.


Knowing that this year, for its third edition, the fairground has expanded twice the size, I brought along my LG 360 CAM to capture all the beautiful insta-worthy shots. I've fallen in love with the 360 Virtual Reality as I can always immerse myself at that moment and relive that precious memory over and over again. ⇑⇑⇑ Check out the opening video above and you'll know what I mean. ⇑⇑⇑

The highlight of the Christmas Wonderland has got to be the Spalliera Castel del Monte, the largest and highest Luminarie ever built in Southeast Asia at 19.8 metre tall and 24 metre wide.


Stepping inside this 13th century Italian-castle-inspired-structure (one of Italy’s most striking UNESCO site) and going under the snowy fray, you can't help feeling like a princess, this will be the best time to have your loved ones join in for a selfie shot.

The Blizzard Time @ The Spalliera happens everyday at 8pm, 9pm and 10pm. There's gona be a crowd, so better be there early to stand by if you want a better spot. =)


Another highlight would be the Ice Palace. Go ahead and live out your 'Frozen' dreams in there as you skate around the 400sqm Ice Skating Rink, an all new Ice Slide and a 96 sqm Snow Playground for the kids to experience snow land!

Boyfriends can take the chance to hold your girlfriends hands or try building a "snowtrain" with your friends. It's a cold winter wonderland for everyone, but be sure to bring a jacket a long as it can get very cold in there, especially when you are walking in from the hot weather outside.

Next to the Ice Palace, you will also find a Magical Forest of over 80 Christmas trees. This is a very beautiful spot for tons of photography, it's as though you are transported to North Pole and what's fun is at the end of the "maze", you can find Santa's Cottage, where you can get to meet Santa! You can take a photo with him and bring home an exclusive Christmas Wonderland memento from $20. 


So, there you have it, The Christmas Wonderland through the 360 lens. Of course that doesn't beat being there in person, so be sure to head on over to soak up the festive mood. If you get tired of walking, you can also pause at the Festive Market for food and drinks or check out the Game Stalls to win home some adorable plushies!
