Only in Hong Kong: Extravagant Holidays

It has been exactly one month since I had arrived in Hong Kong.  I am really starting to settle into this city with a few adjustments on my part.  (When in Rome, do as the Romans do 😉 )

I had an idea last night to create a monthly blog post about sights, sounds, and odd things that only exist in Hong Kong. This is the first post focusing on how “Hong Kong” dresses up for the holidays.  If you have any feedback or anything you are interesting in seeing, please do let me know.

Hong Kong isn’t a traditional Christmas destination but it is a shopper’s paradise.  The holiday season is another excuse to stir-up the consumer spirit as large and sometimes awkward (and cute) decorations are everywhere. Key Traits are:

Fake Plastic Trees

Christmas Deco in the Time Square Mall. Many Many Plastic Trees.

Christmas Deco in the Time Square in Causeway Bay. Many Many Plastic Trees.

In front of the Hopewell Centre, another fake evergreen-type tree lighted in Blue.

Everywhere Lights

Victoria Harbour's Symphony of Lights Show - Holiday Style.

Spider web type lights on the mid-level escalators to the right. Hard to see during the day. More on the mid-level escalators later.

Massive Cuteness Factor

I am now hunting for my new apartment in Hong Kong.  It is in itself an interesting and great learning experience about doing business in Hong Kong.

Happy Holidays!
