Photo of the day: PEK Attempted Xmas


This week’s photo theme is China Plaza Xmas: ostentatious Christmas mall displays in China’s mostly secular megacities.

This one’s not as grandiose as some of our others this week, but it’s… something? Someone wanted to add a little (really just a tiny dash of) Christmas magic to the arrivals hall of Beijing International Airport Terminal 2, so they put some bulbs on the small assortment of potted trees and shrubs to spice things up a bit. Kinda cute.
