Hong Kong Gold Coast presents: “Paddington™ Christmas Celebration”November 2018
Paddington, the British bear known and loved by all, has set its sights on visiting the Hong Kong Gold Coast this winter. You’ll find Paddington at both the Piazza and Hong Kong Gold Coast Hotel, bringing everyone a joyous British yuletide.
To celebrate this festive season, the courtyard of the Piazza will transform into a London Christmas street. Paddington will bring along Routemaster, an eye-catching, 2-meter-tall classic double-decker from London, a floral swing chair, and a classic red round post box, ensuring families and friends get to spend the most authentic British Christmas! Gold Coast Piazza will also play host to a traditional London Christmas celebration, “The Great Christmas Pudding Race”, for the first time in Hong Kong. The little runners have to complete an obstacle race carrying a Christmas pudding prop! Shoppers who spend a specified amount in the Piazza can redeem the Paddington Christmas edition travel neck pillow, and make the cute bear your best travel companion!
