Orchard Road @ Christmas Day (25th December 2013)

Usually i will go Orchard Road during Christmas Day to take a look at the floats as in previous year, but this year they do away with it as understand from a lady whom i talk to, she mention that they want something different.  Didn't ask too much as do not want to take up too much of her time.

Used to go at night time and it's extremely crowded, to avoid the crowds, went in the afternoon.

  3. Tried to avoid Orchard Road during christmas as it will be very crowded and jam, I once went Orchard Road during Christmas Eve night, and the crowds were crazy like hell, everyone very high and wishing strangers merry christmas, haha but a lot of foreign workers at Orchard during Christmas, very scare that they will fight or do anything dangerous...

  9. Orchard Road is getting too crowded. I brought overseas visitors and a group of children to see the Christmas light up. And we could only see a small part of the decors as it was taking us too much time to push our way through the crowds.

  14. Goodness Orchard Road. Two years ago we stayed in Marina Orchard. As soon as we stepped out we are drowned in the crowds! All the time! Back then I find it a nuisance as I was having a 4 year old with me. But now thinking back, it was FUN! :D
