Holiday Finery for a Tropical Christmas
Chijmes is a pretty complex in downtown Singapore
that used to be a Catholic convent but has been converted into a dining and entertainment complex. In December, the entrance gates to the area are festooned with lights, ribbons, and stars. There won't be snow but there is still plenty of holiday cheer around town at this time of year. Chijmes is fairly close to Raffles Hotel and is a nice place to stop for an iced tea (or something stronger) if you're strolling around the neighborhood.
