The Peninsula Christmas Market
In Europe, nothing says Christmas quite like wrapping yourself up in your cosiest cashmere, clutching a steaming cup of mulled wine and perusing the wonderful wares on offer at the local Marché de Noël.
Alas, the same cannot be said for Hong Kong… Or can it? Courtesy of The Peninsula, that bastion of Yuletide traditions – The Christmas Market – returns to the Fragrant Harbour for a one-night-only festive extravaganza on the eve of the big day.
Eschew the frantic last-minute shoppers in nearby Tsim Sha Tsui, and instead, find solace on the forecourt of the iconic hotel where the atmospheric stalls and scent of spiced glühwein and gingerbread whisk you far from your surrounds.
Sugarplum fairies and candy canes adorn speciality stalls selling a beautifully crafted range of gorgeous gifts, available exclusively to hotel guests and dinner patrons of The Peninsula, who can make their selections while sipping on signature drinks and nibbling canapés.
And, as if that wasn’t enough to get you in the holiday spirit, we have it on good authority that Jack Frost himself might make an appearance, granting the city – or, at least, the market’s immediate environs – the first white Christmas in, well, forever! Let it snow!
