Hong Kong will then embrace the spirit of Christmas during the Hong Kong WinterFest (December – January 1) with lavish festive lights and decorations on display, a Tiffany & Co. themed Christmas tree, Christmas villages and best of all, winter sales throughout the city's shopping malls and department stores.

"Winter is the perfect time to visit Hong Kong as there is a unique mix of experiences available for visitors from sampling Hong Kong's world class cuisine to enjoying the spectacle and excitement of the Hong Kong International Races and of course, those fantastic winter shopping sales just in time for Christmas. The cooler months are also ideal for exploring Hong Kong's green side with guided hikes and walks offered during Great Outdoors Hong Kong", says Andrew Clark, Hong Kong Tourism Board's Regional Director.

To conclude the winter celebrations Hong Kong will welcome in the New Year with a spectacular pyrotechnics display over Victoria Harbour on December 31.
