  • Honestly I’m a bit disappointed by the village being the wonderland of Santa clause, it turned out to be a tourist attraction more than a feeling, the arctic circle is just a wall with barely any signs of it. Either my expectations were to high (though most of the time I don’t set any expectations for anything for a positive fun trip) or the location is just ruined by the shops and restaurants that are Christmas themed.
  • Need more letters from Indonesia to Santa Claus... Love this place where you can meet and greet Santa in person. Who has been a good child this Year will get A present from Santa himself
