Hong Kong’s Christmas decorations and festive lights are up! The city’s malls and hotels go all out when it comes to festive displays so you’ll want to plan plenty of outings with your family! Here’s where to take your kids to see Christmas lights and decorations this year.
Christmas lights certainly bring some magic to the season! Get ready for giant Christmas trees and pictures with Santa. After seriously socially distanced Christmas celebrations in previous years, we’re all too excited to see the Hong Kong Christmas decorations, Christmas lights and festive displays that will soon be everywhere across the city. And of course, if you want to deck out your own home you’ll need to know where to buy Christmas decorations. Capture some special moments and spread joy and positivity as you get out and about again with your loved ones. With all the Christmas lights and festive displays around the city, it is definitely a fun, though (slightly) hefty task, to pick which one to go to; but don’t worry – we’ve done the hard work for you so you don’t have to.
We’ll be updating this selection as Santa’s helpers tell us more, so be sure to keep checking back. In the meantime, check out all the new Hong Kong Christmas decorations to get into the Christmas spirit!
