6 Places to Go During CNY 2022 if You Are the Sixth Visitor in Your Household


Ah, yes. Chinese New Year.

It’s everyone’s favourite festival until you realise that the government’s five-visitor rule still applies and that everyone else in your family has left for visiting.

But if you’re finding yourself being lonely this holiday, fret not, because here are our top recommendations on places to visit if you’re spending CNY alone!

Chinatown Chinese New Year Celebrations

It really doesn’t get any more festive than this.

Although there’s no Chinese New Year bazaar or fireworks at Chinatown this year, you’ll definitely still be in awe at the majestic tiger displays scattered all across Chinatown.

With activities such as street light-ups at night, WWF and Temenggong Soldiers Sculpture Displays, a Chinatown Wishing Tree as well as other online activities located at various parts of Chinatown, why not take a walk through the entire district to really soak up the Chinese New Year atmosphere?

The programmes run until 2 March. Check out the list of programmes here!

River Hongbao

With River Hongbao coming back in full force for the festive season, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t take a trip down to Gardens by the Bay to visit all the interesting and vibrant exhibits!

This year’s edition of the festival includes the annual Lantern Displays, amusement rides, other online activities and even a TikTok challenge with prizes to be won!

Additionally, the Nightly Live Shows are back as well after taking a one-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to COVID-19 regulations, booking tickets in advance is required, but admission is free. Slots are extremely limited, so book yours here before they run out!

Gardens by the Bay

Other than River Hongbao taking place outside of Gardens by the Bay, the exhibitions within the garden itself are also worth visiting for sure.

For this year’s CNY, Gardens by the Bay has put up their Dahlia Dreams exhibit, with various life-size decorations such as chunlian (spring prosperity couplets) and prosperity bags being featured all around the Flower Dome!

As for the flora and fauna, be prepared to be greeted with an abundance of Dahlias as well as other Chinese New Year favourites such as azaleas, celosias and coleuses!

There’s even a Chinese pavilion as well as a painting of “The Four Gentlemen” within the exhibit, perfect if you’re looking for an Instaworthy background for your next post!


The exhibition will run until 20 February 2022, and booking tickets in advance is required. For Singapore citizens, tickets cost $12 for adults and $8 for children and seniors. Check out more details regarding the exhibition here!

What does it mean to be a Singaporean Chinese celebrating Chinese New Year?

If that’s something you’ve wondered about, the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre (SCCC) has got you covered.

Explore the various traditions unique to Singapore through SCCC’s “What Makes a Chinese New Year, Singaporean?” exhibition, which will take you through the various highlights of Chinese New Year in Singapore such as River Hongbao and our favourite CNY snacks like pineapple tarts in the form of hawker stalls.

The exhibition will run until 15 February and admission is free. Click here for more details!

Haw Par Villa

It might seem rather ironic to visit Hell during Chinese New Year, but if you’re looking to enhance your knowledge about traditional Chinese customs and beliefs in a slightly different way, why not?


The renovated Haw Par Villa includes an air-conditioned Hell’s Museum, where you can relive your childhood memories (or trauma) of visiting Haw Par Villa with your family!

And that’s not all. The newly revamped location has other exhibitions such as a Culture Courtyard, and also has various tours and trails that you can sign yourself up for. There’s even a bistro and cafe located in the park itself, so you don’t have to worry about descending into Hungry Hell!

Admission to the Hell Museum costs $18 for an adult and $10 for a child over the age of six. Learn more about what Haw Par Villa has to offer and book your tickets here.
