Beijing Santacon Starting Points

Here Comes SantaCon! Here Comes SantaCon!

The wait is almost over! Tomorrow Santa rolls into Beijing in a BIG way, with jolly ol’ elves winding their way through the capital of the Middle Kingdom in a holly jolly horde!

Whether you’re on the east side of the city or the west, there’s a starting point convenient for you to get to. And they are…

East Side / Sanlitun – 11:00am

Remember the first and most important of Santa’s Guidelines: Santa looks like Santa. So come dressed in your finest finery, ready to spread good cheer! If you don’t have a Santa costume and haven’t bothered to put together some other kind of creative holiday-themed outfit, get to the starting points early, as there will be a limited number of Santa suits available for purchase. The price is ¥50 each and all money collected gets donated to Bethel China.

Santa has a long list of nice places to visit, and he/she usually doesn’t stay in one spot for more than an hour, so be prepared to move!. Both sides will make their ways towards the center of the city as the day progresses, eventually meeting up in an explosion of Santas!

Santa will be sending messages to his/her elves, revealing when and where to move to next. Look for WeChat groups… follow friends in the know… follow the hashtag #BJSantaCon on Instagram… Or just listen for the Santa shouting directions.

See you tomorrow!!!!
