Experience the Christmas Season at Nuvali with a Magical Lights and Sounds Show and More!

I like going to NUVALI because it seems to always have something new to offer every time I visit. In fact, just last month, my husband and I were at Nuvali's Camp N, for the launching of its exciting activities for both new and skilled bike enthusiasts.

This December, we went to Nuvali again and discovered more stuff we can do there! First, we checked out Ayala Malls Solenad 3 and watched the latest Disney movie, Moana, in one of four nice cinemas. I highly recommend parents to watch this film with their kids. It has memorable characters and a lot of beautiful songs!

Next, we went around the "Christkindl Market" holiday village that's being held until the end of the month and features traditional and modern gifts for sale including affordable items that fashionistas would love. If I have little girl, I'd probably have bought one of those pretty matching mommy and daughter outfits I saw in one of the booths! There's also a Christmas Bazaar that offers unique local goods from Laguna.

Other crowd-drawing events in store for shoppers included Xavier School Nuvali's activity last December 2 with its "Christmas in our Hearts: The MCN Lighting of the Christmas Star" event and the Manila Symphony Junior Orchestra concert slated for December 16.

After sunset, we trooped to an open area that Nuvali has transformed into the "Magical Field of Lights," the first lights and sounds show in Ayala Land's largest sustainable estate. Ongoing until January 8, 2017, Nuvali's grass fields light up every 30 minutes from 6PM to 10PM daily like an enchanted field of tulips dancing to five-minute medleys to entertain the whole family.

Apart from the show, the field also features other attractions such as a 50-meter long tunnel made of Christmas lights, sparkling Christmas trees, and dandelion light installations. These are complemented with a Christmas fair showcasing traditional Filipino Christmas treats such as bibingka and puto bumbong. Guests can also purchase various local goods that are great for gift-giving.

Jennifer Chua, Nuvali's Marketing Manager, shared, "This year, we are ecstatic to introduce a magical and one-of-a-kind holiday treat to the south, bringing Ayala Land’s signature light and sound show to more cities and communities." The spectacular show is made possible with the help of Estate Water, Qualimed Hospital, Amaia Steps Parkway, Ayala Malls Solenad, and Nestle Kitkat.

Thus, from sunup to sundown, there are a wide range of activities for families and weekenders who are looking to get away from Metro Manila for a day or more. With 50% of the development dedicated to green and open spaces, Nuvali features an off-road biking and running trails approximately 50 km in total length, a multi-functional lake, and a Wildlife and Bird Sanctuary.

If you're planning to have a Christmas staycation, you may want to get a room at Seda Hotel in Nuvali because guests booked for December 24 can enjoy complimentary servings of puto bumbong or bibingka and two cups of hot chocolate.

a good reminder for this Christmas season:
"Always be Kind"
Nuvali sits in the cities of Sta. Rosa, Calamba, and Cabuyao in Laguna and features a diverse mix of residential and commercial developments. To get there, private vehicles can pass through Mamplasan, Sta. Rosa, Eton-Greenfield, Silangan, or Canlubang exits along South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). Public transportation to Nuvali is also available from major jump-offs such as Bonifacio Global City and Balibago.
