Coconuts does Christmas: Festive markets

All I want for Christmas is… to know where I am going to do my last-minute Christmas shopping. The end of November is near, which means it is time to put up your Christmas tree, dig out the decorations, and think about how you are going to battle through the last-minute Christmas shopping rush.

We all know that nothing says Christmas like a Christmas market and, fear not, because Coconuts HK have compiled a handy list of Christmas markets for you.
