Tis the season to be jolly—something a lot of us can probably agree on given 2020’s whirlwind of events. Many of us will be spending Christmas in Hong Kong this year, but there’s a lot to look forward to, from the latest luxury staycations to festive restaurant feasts. In time for the festive season, LANDMARK has just launched its Christmas Market pop-up on the third floor of LANDMARK ATRIUM, open from 2nd November to 31st December. Cha Siu Papers Times visited Santa’s grotto for a sneak peek of what to expect at this mini winter wonderland.
What to expect
Taking an upscale approach to Christmas markets, the LANDMARK pop-up features a variety of homegrown and international brands from different sectors. Gift hunters can find pretty much something for everyone here, and although most of the products are set at premium prices, there are also some budget-friendly options. Present ideas range from fine spirits and homeware to designer accessories and gourmet baked goods to cater for every shopping list.
“We want to create this unique experience, bringing Christmas and joy to Hong Kong and celebrate with our community at LANDMARK.”—Raymond Chow, Executive Director of Hongkong Land.
Soak up the festive atmosphere at this family-friendly venue, while listening to chirpy Christmas carols and strolling through the beautifully-adorned venue.
