This season, Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will welcome Papinee World, “a whimsical voyage of discovery and inspiration”, as the storytelling social enterprise takes over the hotel’s lobby with a “multi-sensory exhibit”. Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong will also offer a collection of customised family-friendly accommodation packages as well as a “lavish festive stay” in the Presidential Mandarin Suite.

In collaboration with Papinee and with support from the Hong Kong gallerist Pearl Lam, the hotel will welcome guests to take a momentary flight of fancy this season. From the end of this month to 6 January, 2017, the hotel’s lobby will combine “a universe of creativity and art to become a fantasyland where guests are invited to journey into the sensory world through Trafalgar Square, London, the city of Paris, and the Japanese Gardens of Tokyo.”
