This year's Christmas in Singapore is about to get lit! Marina Bay is hosting the biggest carnival in Singapore around The Promontory and The Bayfront Event Space. 

With over 40 rides and games (priced between $4 to $10) brought in from all around Europe, you can be sure to enjoy nothing less than a fun-filled night! 

Have a 360-degree view of Singapore's skyline as you soar 35m high with the Star Flyer. See a different side of Singapore; we bet the view from your office won't be as breath-taking.

If you are an adrenaline junkie, Booster Maxx should be on top of your to-do list! The ride will lift you 55m above ground and spins at up to 96km/h. 

Besides all the games and rides, the carnival also offers a wide variety of delicacies and you can expect to enjoy carnival treats ranging from chendol soft-serve to raclette and even offerings from various Michelin-starred restaurants. 

To top it off, admission to the carnival is free! Credits the ride and games tickets online or at the carnival.
