Probably five years ago or so the Christmas displays held at Statue Square were interesting and fun to visit. We remember a Christmas village they had here once that was very nice. But those years have passed and now it seems the nicer WinterFest Christmas events and displays are held indoors in the nearby shopping malls like IFC, Landmark and elsewhere around HK Island while displays here are seemingly more minimal and modest with each passing year.
We were quite interested when we learned that Tiffany and Co. would be the sponsor of the Statue Square WinterFest displays, figuring this might help spruce it up the displays this year. We were wrong. The displays are on the moderate end again and just seem to lack effort and care needed to create something more unique, interesting to see and enjoyable.
If you visit you will find a small ferris wheel, a series of normal sized Christmas trees followed by a large Christmas tree that might look decent at nighttime when lit up but in the day it looked a bit modest and plain compared to what you can see in the nearby malls. Lastly, there are several small outdoor constructed rooms, one where children can make a tree decoration and other when you can have your picture siting on a Tiffany chair next to a tree. That is it, 5 minutes to look-see and then move on.
Overall, we found the Statue Square WinterFest arrangement rather uninviting again this year, much preferring what the displays found in the nearby IFC and Landmark shopping malls as well as what is on offer at the Pacific Place in Admiralty. There is a fun Lego display at Times Square a bit further down the road in Causeway Bay as well. These are all more enjoyable than what we found at Statue Square this year. We'd recommend seeking them out first if you are interested in seeing Christmas decorations or enjoying the Hong Kong WinterFest attractions.
