Christmas Market at Bugis Junction X Bugis+



Every year, Bugis Junction and Bugis+ play host to a fun-filled Christmas market with a slew of exciting activities to participate in. Dubbed TomorrowLand, this year’s Christmas market extends to the open-air square outside Bugis Junction, making it the largest edition of their Christmas market yet. 

From festive decorations, clothes customisations, to markets selling all sorts of treats and trinkets, we take you on a virtual tour around Bugis Junction and Bugis+’s annual Christmas event. 


1. Check out the TO-FU OYAKO-inspired Christmas tree in Bugis Square

This year, a 10-meter tall Christmas tree-shaped centrepiece embellished with an asymmetrical Ferris wheel, glittering lights, and metallic tones stands on display at Bugis Square. The entire design gives a futuristic vibe, and is a fun and modern twist to the conventional Christmas decor.

Giant animated characters TO-FU OYAKO dressed in cute elf costumes also take a spot on the installation. You and your family can take a stroll around Bugis Square and stop by at the tree to take some cool selfies and wefies for the ‘gram. The displays will be up till 30th December, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to catch them.
