Chinatown Wishing Tree
When You Wish Upon a Tree...

Do you believe in wishing trees? What are your hopes for 2020? Make your New Year wishes come true at the Chinatown Wishing Tree! Legend has it that fishermen seeking protection and luck would throw pieces of paper, known as josses, into every earth god, or Pak Kung tree, as they travelled through each village on their way into Hong Kong. There is another legend of a man who came to wish upon one of the trees because his son was not performing well at school. His son’s performance miraculously began to improve and word got out that the trees were magic. Villagers and visitors alike would burn joss sticks at the bottom of the trees to worship the earth god and they would create their wish, or “Bao Die” to throw into it. 

Join the festive fun by making wishes for you and your loved ones. Besides, you can do charity to help the needy elderly. Write wishes for yourself and your loved ones on the “Make a Wish” card and hang them on the banyan tree. Each wishing card costs SG$2 and all proceeds will be donated to the Kreta Ayer Seniors' Activity Centre. Through this meaningful community event, you can bring festive cheers to the less fortunate and reaching out to them with your helping hands.

Write wishes for yourself and your loved ones on the “Make a Wish” card and hang them on the banyan tree and bring festive cheers to the less fortunate.
