The 2018 Great Christmas Village Singapore takes place at the Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza till Wednesday 26 Dec 2018 (11.30am – 10.00pm). We were at Takashimaya and decided to take a look around. Here are some snapshots and information on the Ngee Ann City Christmas fair to help you plan your visit. The food is provided by the folks from Timbre X Food Village & Bar. Various amusement rides are available as well as nightly live performances.
What to Eat at Great Christmas Village
Its beginning to look a lot like … Oktoberfest? The fairground rides, tents, wooden benches and tables at Ngee Ann City Civic Plaza reminded us of our visit to the Munich Oktoberfest earlier this year. They even serve German beer. We were happy to see a wide range of food available at the Timber X food stalls at the Great Christmas Village Singapore. It is probably not a mere coincidence that the type of food tends to go well beer e.g. grilled stingray, fried chicken, satay, roast pork, noodles etc.
The drinks stall is situated right in front of the stage and between the two dining spaces. HofBrau, Tiger Beer and other beverages are served.
Like some of the stalls at Timbre + in Ayer Rajah, the food stalls from Timber X are housed in modified shipping containers.
The organisers have wisely provided some air-conditioned tents.

What to do at Great Christmas Village
Apart from food and drinks, the other attraction at the Great Christmas Village Singapore 2018 Ngee Ann City are the fairground rides. They are quite ‘tame’ and are targeted at the young.
The highlight of the Christmas market (Singapore style) at Ngee Ann City must be the two tiered Great Carousel. A ride on the carousel costs $10. A standing ticket for an accompanying adult is $2. The other rides on the Swing, London Train and Pirate Ship costs $5 each. Combination tickets in the form of the Family Pass and Mastercard Pass are available (see picture above for details). The Santa House is an air-conditioned space that provides a cool sanctuary from the heat and noise outside. Some simple art and craft activities for children are provided inside the ‘log cabin’.
