Sights to See in Santa Claus Village
You might want to know what’s so special about this village. Aside from the pretty obvious reason that it’s going to remind you of your favorite holiday, and that you’re going to get a lot of snow, there are also some exciting things to try out in the Santa Claus Village.
First is the Arctic Circle, which cuts right through the Santa Claus Village.
This is a very popular photo spot for visitors, because they find it exciting that they have ‘crossed the line’, which basically means that they have entered the Arctic area. A white line denoting the Arctic Circle (at its position in 1865) is painted across the park.
Second, the Santa Claus' Main Post Office, which is actually a shop of some sort.
It is home to a large variety of items that are specifically relevant to Christmas – including Christmas cards and CDs, which are all for sale. What’s also great about it is, all mail sent from this post office is postmarked with a special Santa Claus postmark. You can also arrange for your mail to be sent the next Christmas, regardless of when you sent them.
Third is the Santa Claus's Office which is located inside the main building of the Village.
Here, visitors to take photographs and chat with Santa Claus. Oddly enough, Santa Claus also has office hours and may not always be around, so make sure that you know when Santa’s going to be ‘in’ for work, lest your children throw tantrums at their failure to meet and greet Santa Claus.
It’s also important to make sure that everyone in the family is winter-ready, so make sure you have the outfits all prepared. If you still have no winter clothes, you can look for them at online shops like Lazada and Zalora. It would also be great if your purchase comes with a generous discount code.
