With the imminent arrival of Santa Claus, shopping malls throughout Hong Kong are getting people into the festive spirit with their elaborate Christmas displays.
Pacific Place, The Landmark, 1881 Heritage and Harbour City have put up displays for the young and old to enjoy.
This festive season, Pacific Place has a selection of entertainment, bespoke gifts and sensory experiences. The mall has a number of pop-ups that provide personalised gift ideas for the holiday season. Visitors will get to enjoy a sensory Christmas experience with mulled wine, Christmas carols, hot chocolate, a visit with Santa and much more.
The Landmark’s animal circus display features characters demonstrating their inner-strength with surreal performances presided over by Santa Paws. The display is based on scenes of Santa Paws and his friends created by renowned French illustrator Eric Giriat, and features over 100 animated figurines that burst into life every 30 minutes.
Harbour City is focusing on a light display and a lot of snowmen for its display this year — more than 150 to be exact. The snowmen are a combination of two big snowballs and come in 32 different designs and colours. There is also a 12-metre tall Christmas tree — made out of snowmen — a large carousel and an outdoor Christmas light display.
Also utilising the snowman theme is 1881 Heritage. The centrepiece of the boutique shopping mall’s display is a 15-metre tall snowman, with other, smaller snowmen sledging and frollicking nearby.
