Christmas Displays in Hong Kong

Reading Time: 2 minutes

What’s Christmas without snaps of the kids in front of elaborate Christmas displays. Hong Kong has a lovely array of displays around town, and although this year we have to keep social distancing in mind, you can still take the kids out and about to experience the magic of Christmas.

Please Note: Due to the evolving situation in Hong Kong as a result of the coronavirus. Businesses may be affected. Please check online before planning your visits. Follow government advice and take the necessary precautions.


This year, IFC mall has transformed the Oval Atrium into a dazzling display featuring 3,600 LED mini light bulbs that form a six-metre-high illuminating sphere and an interactive display of 9 mega ornaments. There will be a light show every half hour, along with Instagram filters and the opportunity to create a video greeting with an AR Christmas Town. You can share holiday wishes with family and friends via social media.
