Alexa, play “Let It Snow”, ‘cos things are getting chilly (kinda) at these snow events in Singapore.
Brr, it’s cold in… Singapore? Don’t hold off your mulled wine just yet! Enjoying the snow in our tropical city may seem as unattainable as our diet plan for Christmas, what with all the festive feasts, but it’s actually possible. These spots may not have actual powdery white snow like the kind you’ll find at a ski resort, but they’re still frosty enough for you to whip out your thinnest winter wear and get in the Yuletide mood with Christmas music.
Where to find snow in Singapore for 2023
1. The Snowland at Christmas Wonderland

Start your adventure with a merry-go-round on ice that promises exhilarating spins. If you’re looking to try your hand at skiing, take on Singapore’s longest snow slope which spans 98 metres in length with a height of 6.5 metres. Slip and slide down the double-lane couple ice slide with your loved one, and be sure to hold on tight! If you need to warm up, retreat to the wooden cottage as you wait for the enchanting arctic winter lights that happen at the last hour of each session.
