What To Do During This Phase 2 Weekend (11-13 Dec)

Ready for the weekend? Here's what you can look forward to this week.

1. Island Lights with Sanrio characters


Take a nostalgic and gorgeously Instagrammable trip down memory lane at Sentosa's festive light-up this weekend. With seven breathtaking light installations on Siloso Beach, Island Lights with Sanrio characters uses classic characters like Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, My Melody and Little Twin Stars to bring Sentosa's former icons to life.

Snap a selfie with Hello Kitty at a stylistic recreation of the Sentosa Gateway arch, complete with heart-shaped lights, or reminisce about the former Fantasy Island waterpark with Little Twin Stars at an eight-metre-tall installation of the park's colourful waterslides. You can also explore a mini-maze in search of My Melody and uncover photo points of former landmarks like the old Ferry Terminal along the way.

That's not all: From now till 31 December, admission to Sentosa is FREE! On top of that, once Phase 3 starts on 28 December, you can book admission for a group of up to 8 people.

You can also spread your own message of positivity by sharing a virtual high-five with fellow Singaporeans; simply snap a picture of yourself high-fiving the Singa Christmas Tree and share it online, along with a few words of care and kindness.

3. Once Upon A Time On The Orient Express

Fancy a trip across Europe? Board the Orient Express when it pulls into town this weekend to enjoy the next best thing. Spanning over 2000 square metres, this pop-up attraction takes place in the 158-year-old locomotive itself and even features two of its original train carriages, classified as National Treasures of France.

Inside, you'll find a treasure trove of heritage, including 300 historical artefacts such as uniforms, crockery and posters. Fancy a bite? Dine at the replica restaurant car onboard, designed to recreate this decadent experience from the golden age of luxury rail travel.

In addition, if you're an Agatha Christie fan or simply want to test your detective skills, challenge yourself with an Escape Room that recreates Murder on the Orient Express – with a few twists to keep the mystery fresh and intriguing.
