Wonderland-themed Christmas at Jem
With Christmas light-ups in full swing, throngs of people are swarming to town for the countless photo-ops lined up. But we’re telling you that there’s no need to jostle the crowds to get into the festive spirit.
This year, Jem is bringing the magic closer to the heartlands with their Wonderland-themed Christmas displays. From a massive 12m-tall tree and magical neon mushrooms to tons of holiday deals, here’s what you can expect at Jem this Christmas.
Escape to Wonderland with the white rabbit
Just a stone throws away from the MRT sits the centrepiece of the enchanting display: A 12m-tall Christmas tree, covered in jewel-toned baubles all over.
Follow the white rabbit and take a step through the twinkle-lit archways, pass through the massive tree’s hollow and be transported into a colourful fairytale land. Here, you’ll feel like you’ve just drunk a shrinking potion as you wander through the giant garden of magical neon-coloured mushrooms and spherical hedges that line the pathway.

Visit in the evenings and experience the Christmas magic in full force, with twinkle lights bathing the entire landscape in a warm romantic glow.
The fun continues even as you enter the mall. Dangled by fairy lights, whimsical bunnies, snowglobe ‘bubbles’, and top hats float between the levels - so don’t forget to admire the scenery while doing your Christmas shopping rounds.
