Have A Holly Hogsmeade Christmas At Siam Paragon In Bangkok This December
Our Potter prayers have finally been answered. Hogsmeade is coming to Siam Paragon, giving us yet another reason to hop on a plane to Bangkok this holiday season.
Siam Paragon’s Fashion Hall will be playing host to a Christmas edition of the Harry Potter’ from 17 Dec to 2 Mar 2018, according to TimeOut Bangkok. A version of the exhibit is currently running at a mall in Sandy, Utah, and it gives us a preview of what to expect come December.
Stroll Down Diagon Alley and Hogsmeade
You’ll be able to stroll down iconic wizarding locales like Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley right in the heart of Bangkok’s main shopping district.
To prepare for your new year at Hogwarts, you’ll probably want to drop by a few shops for all your magical needs. The exhibition offers exact replicas of these shops inspired by Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley as featured in the Harry Potter books and the Fantastic Beasts movie series.
Ollivanders’ Wand Shop
We’re not sure why Hedwig lives at Ollivanders’ now.
Deck the halls with Chocolate Frogs.
Dervish & Banges
Is there a Nimbus Two Thousand And Seventeen?
Let the right wand choose you at Ollivanders’. Hopefully the wand that is destined for you is not curiously linked to Voldemort. We all know how that’s going to turn out.
Consider trying your hand at wizarding sports with “Quaffle Toss”, a game based on the rules of Quidditch.
Fancy doing a bit of Christmas shopping while you’re here? Spend your galleons on brand new Hogwarts robes at Madam Puddifoot’s or snack on every flavour of Bertie Bott’s Every Flavour Beans at Honeydukes.
A must-see for Potterheads
If you identify as a Potterhead, and have lived and breathed J.K. Rowling’s books since Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, it’s probably time to make plans to visit Bangkok, again.
Alternatively, if you’re already headed there, perhaps it’s time to strike Platinum Mall off the list and add this to your itinerary instead.
