Bright Skies Ahead
Dubbed as the one of the world's most spectacular light shows, the marvelous

show along Victoria Harbour will be further enhanced this Christmas and New
Year. The additional skyscrapers participating in the coordinated production
and pyrotechnics from building rooftops adding highlights to the show on
selected evenings will usher in the holiday season.

A Tale of Two Trees
An artistic reinterpretation of the traditional Christmas tree will be
installed adjacent to the Observation Wheel. The "XTree" by France's 1024 Architecture is made with lit-up metallic
scaffoldings that represent branches, and augmented by strategically placed
light decorations that dance to a matching soundtrack. Hong
Kong's Christmas atmosphere is further enhanced by the iconic Christmas Tree at Statue Square, enticing visitors with its
sparkling festive display.
Along with a range of
winter celebration activities taking place at key attractions, festive seasonal
events and night tours, these festivities promise to spice up visitors' holiday
