You know how people older than you tell you about how when they were younger they’d go watch the Christmas lights being turned on in some or other street in Johannesburg and how you’ve seen this before as well? And, you kinda just sit there like o-kay?
Well, for those of us who really can’t relate (or recall), we can now make similar memories of our own at the annual Emperor’s Palace Garden of Lights!
The Garden of Lights is a wonderland of Christmas light displays in the gardens of the D’oreale Grande hotel at Emperor’s Palace. In 2015, the Garden of Lights took place from 5 December 2015 – 4 January 2016 from 19:00 – 22:00.
I’ve always seen much hype about it on social media and really wanted to go and check it out. We tried going on Christmas Eve but it was just the worst time to go because the queues were CRAZY. On our second attempt on 3 January 2016, we went a bit earlier and were lucky enough to get in!
Although Christmas is long gone, I still think these are worth a share!
