Christmas 2020 at Kallang Wave Mall
It may not be December yet, but there’s no denying that many of us are already cooking up ideas for a 5-pax home gathering over turkey and ham, or envisioning our home decked out in Christmas lights and a tree.
For those raring to celebrate, get a head start on festivities this year with Kallang Wave Mall and its year-end promotions – perfect for all Easties looking to start clearing their Christmas shopping lists early. From $50 mall vouchers to free train rides, here are some rewards you’ll be entitled to when you shop and dine at the mall:
Redeem a free Choo Choo Train Ride around the mall
Arcade lovers may be no strangers to the vibrant arcade Paco FunWorld, filled with our all-time favourite claw machines, classic race car games and even a children’s ball pit. Games start from $0.33 per token, but from now till 1st January 2021 simply spend any amount in the mall to redeem a free ride on their chugging Choo Choo Train.
Parents with kids in tow can hop on board after a round of games – each redemption grants both you and your little one an approximately seven-minute-ride around Level 1, every Monday to Friday (except Public Holidays). If it’s your first time visiting, consider this an easy way to do a site recce before you start your shopping spree!
Shop to collect $10 mall vouchers & gift wrappers
Christmas jingles aside, there’s nothing quite music to the ears as the word “freebies”. From now till 3rd January, with a minimum spend of $50, you’ll be able to redeem an exclusive gift wrapping paper to bundle your many gifts with.
And if you’re looking to get all your gift shopping down in one place, a minimum spend of $180 (or $220 at Fairprice Xtra) will earn you a $10 mall voucher in return.
P.S. Plus! members also get an additional $5 mall voucher with a min top-up spending of $80.
Check out the vibrant Christmas fairy lights
Those drawn to fairy lights like moths to a flame can come by in the evenings to see the mall’s exterior come to life with a whimsical display of fairy lights, dangling ornaments and glittering stars. Some may remember last year’s light display being blue, but this time around they’re golden, perfect for that warm-hued IG feed.
Snap pictures at the X’mas Gift Factory photo op to win $50 vouchers
Every year, shopping malls across Singapore go all out with their Christmas decorations but Christmas trees are always the ones we turn our heads for. Some go big, some go vibrant, but uniquely so, the one at the mall’s X’mas Gift Factory goes green and is made of upcycled bottles instead.
You can’t miss the eye-catching display at the entrance, framed by an LED-lit photo arch and cardboard motifs of Christmas icons like The Nutcracker. Go ahead and take a closer look – it might just inspire you to set up your own eco-friendly DIY Christmas tree this year!

You’ll be able to spend these vouchers on most Kallang Wave Mall’s F&B and retail establishments, including:
Yunomori Onsen & Spa

Located in a corner of Kallang Wave Mall, Yunomori Onsen & Spa is where you can experience the onsen towns of Japan here in SG. Soak your stress away in their many communal onsen pools or don the provided yukata and dine at their in-house cafe. Prices begin at $38++ for a day pass.
Not your usual cafe, Tiara Waterfront also doubles up as wedding and events space – which explains the grandeur of its interior. No worries, lunch doesn’t have to come in the form of an entire banquet – they specialise in flavourful Mediterranean cuisines, with dishes you can order a la carte.
Mediterranean fare here includes (left to right): Turkish Pizza, Tiara Ultimate Mixed Grill.
Try their Turkish Pizza ($19) for an interesting twist on the usual both visually and taste-wise. Filled within its boat-shaped crust is minced lamb, onions, a mix of spices and more than enough mozzarella cheese to pass the satisfying cheese-pull test.
Groups of meat lovers can also share the Tiara Ultimate Mixed Grill ($59), comprising drool-worthy platter of flame-grilled prawns, lamb chops, chicken, lamb kofta and shish kebabs with a side of yoghurt and flavoured rice – fit for two to three pax.
Visit Kallang Wave Mall this Christmas
Christmas may be the season of giving but we’re not going to say no to collecting rewards for ourselves along the way! And if Kallang Wave Mall is your mall of choice, then you can look forward to free train rides for the young ones and cash vouchers to help you save on future purchases.
A stone’s throw away from Stadium MRT, the mall is also a highly-accessible gem where you can enjoy sporty activities like rock climbing, pop by one of its many cafes and restaurants for nosh or stock up on essentials from Fairprice Xtra and Daiso.
