It’s not all about feasting and presents
If you’re in Singapore for Christmas and looking for something memorable to mark the festivities, here are some fun alternatives.
Yup, the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station will be closed for future developments from December 26, 2016 to 2025 so don’t miss your last chance to visit this iconic venue. The next time you see the station, it will be incorporated into the upcoming Cantoment MRT station so you know things will not look the same by then. Find out more here.
