Fast-paced, exciting and rich in culture, Hong Kong is a fantastic travel destination, particularly during the Christmas holidays when the city is even more lit up and abuzz!
With its exciting blend of East and West, there are plenty of different ways to celebrate Christmas in Hong Kong.
Hong King WinterFest
Renowned for being one of the best places to spend Christmas, Hong Kong’s WinterFest sees Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour transformed into a grandiose winter wonderland with specially built light structures, light-adorned skyscrapers and fireworks.
Around the City
Don’t be put off by the cold! Get rugged up in your new winter gear (thank you Hong Kong shopping!) and wander the city to take in the amazing displays and decorations all over the parks, shopping malls and squares. Carollers walking around singing in the open add that extra special Christmas touch.
Hong Kong Disneyland
Kids and kids-at-heart alike will fall in love with Disneyland instantly. Disneyland during Christmastime is even more magical and joyous than usual. Areas of the resort are transformed with lights, decorations and a giant Christmas tree, and you’ll see your favourite Disney characters dressed in festive costumes. To top it off, exclusive Disney Christmas collectibles are available throughout the park so you can take a little piece of the magic home with you.
Save your Christmas gift-buying for Hong Kong which is considered by some to be the mecca of shopping. From high street chain stores to funky local street wear designers, and local markets to luxury fashion brands, there’s something for everybody in Hong Kong.
Hong Kong has a reputation for dining that is envied by other cities. The ante is upped around the festive season when hotels go all out preparing Christmas feasts for guests. Or, why not do Christmas a little differently this year and go for a traditional Chinese banquet?
Most people will agree that watching The Nutcracker is the penultimate Christmas experience. Luckily, the Hong Kong Ballet stages this beautiful operatic ballet around Christmastime at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre.
Spend Christmas with the Hong Kong Philharmonic enjoying their renditions of your favourite Christmas carols and local classics.
