Happy and excited faces are taking on the sights, sounds and smells of a wintery tale at Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah. A gigantic Christmas tree in Peacock Alley towers above the little children who look up in amazement at the wondrous creation. Gifts are tightly wrapped around the base of the tree, stories of Father Christmas and Santa Claus are being told. The anticipation of this miraculous day is being felt.
A giant 20-meter gingerbread Polar Express train stands proudly remembering the story of a young boy on Christmas Eve who boards a powerful and magical train to the North Pole and Father Christmas’ home. A true Christmas adventure unfolds and the doubting boy who embraces an extraordinary train ride embarks on a journey of self-discovery and learns that for those that believe, the wonder of life never fades. All aboard the gingerbread train!
Come and join us on Tuesday 22 December for the annual Christmas Carol evening in Peacock Alley. Enjoy traditional German mulled drinks and Christmas cookies as children from across Ras Al Khaimah happily sing until their hearts are content.
