Hong Kong is one of China’s great destinations, but for Christmas season is an incredible and special place. If you’re thinking of a winter getaway, we recommend you to travel during Christmas. Next, you will find the reasons why is better to travel in winter.
The reasons: Christmas Decoration
Hong Kong is a special city where you can find modernity with tradition. A tradition that can be seen in every corner. However, they have also “adopted” Western customs. For this reason, Hong Kong at Christmas is a real spectacle.
The city is dressed in coloured lights and decorated with trees. The shops show their most incredible shop windows to encourage you to buy. And, of course, you have to immerse yourself in the atmosphere that surrounds the whole city.
How to Enjoy Christmas in Hong Kong?
You will be able to enjoy an endless number of special activities that only take place on these special dates. One of the most beautiful shows you’ll see at night. Some city buildings emit lights and images into the sky in the form of Christmas elements such as snowflakes, reindeer or trees.
The lighting is part of Winterfest. A festival that is held throughout the month of December and in which you can also enjoy fireworks shows and a wide variety of art exhibitions.
Also, do not forget to visit the Heritage 1881 building. It has hundreds of shops and commercial premises inside. But what will attract your attention, and especially that of the smallest, is the huge snowman on his door.
What else does the state offer?
Ride on Victoria Peak
The Victoria Peak is a tram with more than 120 years old that reaches one of the highest points of the city, 522 meters. From there you can get breathtaking panoramic views.
Visit the Museum of History
This free museum opened in 1957 and will take you on an exciting journey through the city’s history. You will be able to know what Hong Kong was in the past and in the present.
The night markets
Although the nickname “city that never sleeps” is New York, Hong Kong could also be catalogued as such. Here you can visit various night markets where you can buy almost anything, watch street shows or even eat at one of their stalls.
Symphony of Lights
We mentioned the Christmas light show to you. Well, this one can be seen every night at 8:00, all year round. Symphony of Lights adorns the skyline of the city with incredible beams of light and LED screens, while in the background melodies played by the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Climb escalators are the longest escalators in the world. They are more than 800 metres high and rise about 135 metres in twenty minutes.
The last but not the least, Hong Kong Bay is an amazing place. Flanked by huge skyscrapers, in its waters, however, can still be seen sailing traditional boats.
