It’s dragons, dragons everywhere in Singapore for the Chinese New Year 2024. While the exact date was February 10, the festivities have been going on — and will go on — for some time. The island nation is bursting with colour and energy inspired by the Year of the Dragon.

Dragon installations can be admired in several places in Singapore, especially in Chinatown, the heart of the celebrations.

For visitors coming into Singapore or departing through Changi International Airport, the attractions include Lion Dance and LED Dragon Dance at Jewel Changi at 12.38pm and 7.38pm on Feb 11 and 12, 2024. The Canopy Park at Jewel Changi is displaying an adorable animatronics dragon family.

Here is a look at how dragons have taken over Singapore.
