There might not be any snow in Chengdu, but Father Christmas is going to set up base there anyway, once a Christmas-themed indoor park gets built next to Floraland.

With over 100,000 square feet to develop by 2016, the new Santa Park will be similar to the original one in the Arctic, and will even have its own “Finland Street.”

The project is a joint venture between SantaPark and Lappset in Finland, and Chengdu Pureland Investment Co. Ltd.
