Chennai, Dec 4:
West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB) is bringing back the signature high-rise Christmas Tree and Christmas Town – to the WKCD Art Park for the first time – as an extension of the “Hong Kong Neighbourhood” – “West Kowloon” promotion. Be prepared to be transported into this romantic photo spot of glittering festive lights and life-like decorations, and start off your festive season in this not-to-be-missed winter hangout.
Highlights of Hong Kong WinterFest’s Christmas Town: Overlooked by soaring Christmas tree and surrounded by the festive Santa Lodges and decos, this year’s Christmas Town is designed after the fantasy town of Colmar, France, which also inspired Howl’s Moving Castle, a world-acclaimed animated picture directed by Hayao Miyazaki.
The outdoor Christmas Tree stands 20 metres high, more than 6 storeys. With festive music and lighting effects, the Tree will decorate the skyline of Victoria Harbour, making the scene a not-to-be-missed Christmas checkpoint.
There will be 8 Santa Lodges in Christmas Town surrounded by small Christmas trees, golden reindeers and antique lampposts, offering a European Christmas experience to visitors.
