Create Joy with Cocoa Masters at Landmark

Landmark has done it again with a breath-taking Christmas feature in the main atrium. This year it’s inviting us to create joy with the mischievous Cocoa Monsters! When the display comes alive every half hour and on the hour, the Cocoa Monsters lovingly create their chocolates for all to share, but watch out for the Greedy Monsters hanging out nearby to steal it for themselves!

There’s a Cocoa Forest where the Cocoa Collectors source the best beans, a flavour well where the Cocoa Monsters source natural flavours straight from the ground, as well as a Decorating Tower where amazing designs are spun onto the chocolate. To add to the magic, all proceeds go to Make-a-Wish Hong Kong, so go check it out and spread some joy!

Christmas Treasures at Harbour City

The displays at Harbour City this year are as amazing as ever and feature a “treasure city” filled with ways to make some amazing Christmas memories. Take some fun, ‘gram-worthy pictures on the 40-metre-long Christmas Bridge (which is the first “Love Lock Bridge” in Hong Kong), and check out the special Post Office “Xmas Post” & “Santa Studio” under the bridge. The coolest part? The world’s largest mirror kaleidoscope! At 16 metres long, 4.5 metres high and 4.5 metres wide, it’s filled with Christmas scenery that transitions as you walk through and is a perfect background for pictures. It’s an ideal weekend or evening outing!
