Not to be outdone by the displays in shopping malls, hotels in Hong Kong are also getting in on the festive act. The Mandarin Oriental, The Peninsula and Marco Polo hotels all have displays with their unique take on Christmas.
The Mandarin Oriental’s Christmas display, Papinee World, is a collaboration with Papinee and Pearl Lam Galleries.
The hotel’s lobby combines creativity and art, transferring guests to Trafalgar Square, London, Paris and Tokyo. The display also features large Papinee sculptures. Papinee is a children’s storytelling social enterprise and creative movement.
Hotel guests and visitors to the Peninsula are invited to purchase ornaments to hang on the hotel’s majestic Christmas tree, with proceeds going directly to Make-A-Wish Hong Kong. The oldest hotel in Hong Kong also has a night market, snowmen, a snow covered train set and a gingerbread house.
Marco Polo has a festive scene of a train set journeying through a winter wonderland, Christmas trees, and gifts and chocolates wrapped in a red ribbon.
