2. THAIPUSAM FESTIVAL
Named after the star, Pusam, the Thaipusam festival celebrates giving thanks and is a day for devotees to celebrate the fulfilment of their vows. The festival honours Lord Subramaniam (also known as Lord Murugan), who represents virtue, youth and power, and is the destroyer of evil in the Hindu community. In Singapore, the religious festival brings together thousands of Hindu devotees who undergo a 4km walk through the city, ending by the Sri Thendayuthapani Temple.
You can witness the colourful procession between Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple at Serangoon Road and Sri Thendayuthapani Temple at Tank Road, as some lanes are closed to traffic for the occasion.
When? 21 January
3. i LIGHT SINGAPORE
And just when you think the city can’t get any more beautiful – the annual i Light Singapore comes to town, showcasing a huge host of light installations to promote a more sustainable way of living. The theme this year? Bridges of time. You heard us. Head to the Marina Bay and immerse yourself in the luminous telling of the city’s history and its connection to the rest of the world. This year, installations can also be seen from the Civic District, the Singapore River and Fort Canning Park.
