Christmas in Singapore is a big celebration that gives the locals another excuse to do what they love most: eat and shop. The famous shopping belt on Orchard Road is spectacularly lit up every December to ramp up the festive mood, and serves as a blazing reminder to hit the malls. Meanwhile, Christmas spreads and Yuletide menus pop up at restaurants across the island, giving a festive twist to an already impressive dining scene. At its heart, the Christmas holiday is still a special day for Singapore’s many Christians. It’s not all indulgence though.

Dubai, UAE

Dubai has plenty in store for its residents and visitors during the last month of the year. As well as annual sporting event Dubai Rugby Sevens and all the usual festive fun and games, we’ve got film, extreme sports and mega brunches to look forward to.

With beautiful sunshine, cool breezes and gorgeous clear skies, it's the BEST time of year to be in Dubai. Dubai is just outright fun all December long, thanks to the epic parties. One of the best things about Dubai is its affinity for brunching, and Christmas Day is no different. In the UAE, it's more than acceptable to go out for brunch to a lush hotel rather than stay home cooking.

Things to do in Dubai over Christmas week:

  • Snow fight in Dubai
  • Go to the (camel) races
  • Eat glorious Indian (with a fountain view)
  • Shop, a lot!
