Top attractions set for WinterFest


Four major attractions - Hong Kong Disneyland, Madame Tussauds, Ngong Ping 360 and Ocean Park - will join the Tourism Board to present a spectacular array of fun-filled activities during this year's WinterFest from November 24 to January 1.

The board said the event will make Hong Kong the centre of Christmas and New Year celebrations in Asia. The focal point of WinterFest will be Statue Square, which will be transformed into a picturesque, European-style Santa's Town featuring traditional Christmas elements.

There will be photo backdrops of Mickey & Minnie Mouse and Ocean Park's Whiskers, a wax figure of Bruce Lee, and a Ngong Ping 360 Skyrail cabin.

WinterFest will also tie in with the peak convention and exhibition season, including ITU Telecom World 2006, which will take place December 4 to 8. To encourage delegates to participate in the event, two Visitor Services Counters will be set up at the conference venue, presenting welcome packs and travel information.
