Chinese New Year

January-February

Chinese New Year marks the start of the lunar calendar for Singapore’s vast Chinese community. Inevitably, the best place to see the celebrations is in Chinatown, which is lit for 15 days by bright lights and decked with traditional red lanterns. There are also traditional parades, live music, dance shows and cultural exhibitions.

Thaipusam (Walk of Faith)

January-February

Thaipusam is the most symbolic festival for Singapore’s large Hindu, Tamil community. On the full moon of the tenth Tamil month, devotees make a five-hour procession, or ‘Walk of Faith’ from Sri Srinivasa Perumal Temple to Sri Thendayuthapani Temple. This is done to offer their own thanks and to receive blessings.
