There is just something very special about Hong Kong during Christmas time. The city is full of places with glamorous decoration: garlands and ornaments, sparkling festive lights. There are a myriad of unique shopping, dining and entertainment experiences that you can discover and immerse yourself in an atmosphere of love, warmth and joy.

For this holiday season, we have selected a perfect Christmas itinerary in Hong Kong for you.

Visit the Christmas town in West Kowloon

There is nothing more iconic than visiting Christmas Town in the West Kowloon district. Hong Kong’s vibrant new international arts and culture center has been transformed into a storybook Christmas town, with eight wooden photo-taking pavilions spread around a 20-meter Christmas tree. This year, the six-story Christmas tree was moved from Central to West Kowloon for the first time, putting the cultural district in the spotlight.

Christmas Town is designed after the fantastic city of Colmar, France, which also inspired Howl’s Moving Castle, a world-famous animated film directed by Hayao Miyazaki. With festive music and light effects, the Christmas tree will decorate the Victoria Harbor skyline, making the stage a must-see Christmas checkpoint.
