The Great European Carnival at Hong Kong Waterfront

Happy New Year! Best wishes in this exciting 2016 ahead!

THE Great European Carnival is a temporary amusement theme park at Hong Kong Central's Harbour Front. Simply purchase an entry ticket and spare some New Year loose-change to enjoy an afternoon or evening of exciting rides, games and food.

Right next door to the also temporary Hong Kong Observation Wheel, the site itself is on one of Hong Kong Victoria Harbour's latest (and hopefully the last) piece of reclamation land which used to be the controversial Central Star Ferry Pier. It is now a clean site ready to be turned into a public park once the near by motorway constructions are completed. At the mean time, the local government has decided to allow temporary special events to be held.

Christmas Trees in Hong Kong 2015

It's Boxing Day! Time to open your presents underneath that Christmas Tree at home. Over the past 5 Christmas, Hong Kong Travel Blog SimpleDreamer.com has brought you plenty of Christmas displays around Hong Kong. It has been fun doing so and we will certainly continue this next Christmas.

Christmas Tree at Festival Walk

Do you know how the idea originated? Well, at first, we thought it would be cool to take pictures whenever we came across a Christmas tree in Hong Kong. We soon discovered that shopping malls put in plenty of efforts to set up displays that are much more beyond Christmas Trees. Before we knew it, we have been doing this for 5 years!

Line Friends Party at Langham Place

It's Silent Night! Well, kind of! For those who lives in metropolitan Hong Kong, Christmas Eve is usually full of happenings that have little to do with silence. Having said that, the way how human beings communicate is changing. Instead of talking to each other, we send messages on the smartphone. Line is one of those social media app that is especially popular in China.


Line is somehow so popular that it has its own library of cartoon characters. Langham Place in Mong Kok has decided to take these Line Friends to their atrium this Christmas!

Christmas Tree at Festival Walk

Kowloon Tong is one of Hong Kong's district known for the number of Education Institutes, Church, expensive real estates and love hotels all in the same area. It has never been considered as a shopping area, until Festival Walk came along.

Christmas Tree at Festival Walk 2015

Built around the Kowloon Tong MTR station, Festival Walk connects Hong Kong's underground railway and original train system. Even before this shopping mall was built, Kowloon Tong has always been a transportation hub. Sitting on treasured land, developers built a huge (really really really big) mall with great height, giving it plenty of space for a six-level tall Christmas tree, attracting shoppers from all directions.
