Themed "Tropical Beach Christmas", the decorations sport tropical elements like sandy snowmen, starfish, palm trees, as well as transport-themed ornaments.

"These aim to enhance commuters’ public transport experience and spread the Christmas holiday cheer," said LTA in the media release. 

The Christmas-themed trains will run on all five MRT lines and will roll out progressively.
