The Harbour City shopping mall in Hong Kong throws open its annual outdoor Christmas lighting display that’s packed with festive photo spots and fun activities on the theme of Christmas Treasure.

At the Ocean Terminal, visitors can walk through the world’s largest video kaleidoscope and view dynamic Christmas themed scenery such as snowflakes, Christmas tree, stars and rainbow tunnel which are refracted through the triangular mirror and LED screen walls. Admission is HK$50 (Bt210) and the proceeds will go to Hong Kong Blood Cancer Foundation.

The Ocean terminal forecourt is home to the largest-ever 20-metres high Christmas tree and the 40-metre-long Christmas Love Lock bridge adorned with nearly 200,000 LED lights that create spectacular lighting effects. Visitors can choose their favourite colour Love Lock representing different wishes and lock it on the bridge fence to make a wish by donating HK$20. A festive special Post Office “Xmas Post” and “Santa Studio” are also under the bridge with a large post box and plenty of unique postcards.

 With original music arrangement matching with the different colours of romantic scenery, this multimedia show has set the harbour ablaze and will showcase the vibrancy and glamorous night vista of Harbour City.

British designer duo Miller Goodman has transformed the Gateway Arcade II and Ocean Terminal lobby into a wonderland, inspired by classic fantasy “The Nutcracker”. 

The event continues through January 1.
