Langham Place, a shopping mall in Portland Street of Mong Kok in Hong Kong, hosts regular small to medium sized exhibitions. There is of course no exceptions in this holiday season. This Christmas, you can find a small jungle of white glowing Christmas trees at Langham Place Mongkok.

Theme around white Christmas, white trees and houses made of plastic and LED warmed up one's heart. According to Langham Place, displays in the Illuminated Forest are supposed to be 4D: stimulating ones sight, touch, sound and smell.

Perhaps due to the limited space and over whelming number of people, I was only able to "see" these glowing trees. The other three senses were occupied by the touch of stranger's shoulders, the sound of background chatter and the smell of human beings. 


Inside the Illuminated Forest, there are cartoon figures of polar animals. The forest does get a bit crowded in the evening (when it looks best). It is near impossible to take get closed to these animals, let alone taking photos, during regular shopping hours.
 

Nonetheless, it looked great in photos and even better in real life. If would be magnificent without the crowd. But hey, this is virtually impossible as it is Mongkok, one of the busiest shopping districts in Hong Kong!
