Christmas is already here at ION Orchard, with Basement 2 of the mall transformed into a train terminal while the Christmas tree dazzles above ground. Decorated by Pandora and featuring 72 rose gold snowflakes and over 130,000 fairy lights, the 20m-tall ION Orchard Christmas tree also allows shoppers and visitors along Orchard Road to walk in and experience an animated winter wonderland. The ION Sky observation deck on Level 56 also unveiled a new look, which aims to educate visitors on Orchard Road’s humble beginnings as a collection of nutmeg farms, spice gardens and fruit orchards in the 1830s.
Actor and singer Yook Sung-jae, a member of K-pop boyband BtoB, performed five songs at ION Orchard's eighth anniversary concert on Friday (29 Sept). He performed two songs from the soundtrack of the hit K-drama "Goblin" that he starred in - "Who Are You" and "Beautiful".
