Lunar New Year is without a doubt the biggest (and most-adored) festival of the lunar calendar, with 15-days packed full of age-old traditions, cultural festivities and family celebrations!
Starting on the first day of the new year and right up until the Spring Lantern Festival, locals flock to aromatic temples to pray for good fortune, fill themselves with auspicious foods and string up shock-red lanterns.
In Hong Kong, an ancient Chinese festival has become one of the world's greatest parties – the Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival. And every year, boats, beers and cheers draw hundreds of thousands of revellers and spectators to stunning Victoria Harbour.
Only Asia’s world city could take an ancient Chinese tradition and transform it into a modern sport and international party.
“May we live long and share the beauty of the moon together, even if we are hundreds of miles apart,” says the romantic Chinese poem.
If you are in Hong Kong during the Mid-Autumn Festival, it will be impossible not to notice mooncakes. hey are believed to have originated from Yuan dynasty (1271-1368) revolutionaries, who are said to have used the pastries to pass secret messages between each other.
In the fast-paced, hard-working society of Hong Kong, locals love to don a disguise and let their hair down. And the city’s reputation for Halloween festivities – from decorated shopping malls and themed menus to raucous street parties and elaborate theme park celebrations -- has made it the place where Asia comes to party on All Hallows' Eve.
So next October, grab your disguise, get on your broom and head to Asia’s world city for a howling good time!
There’s no Christmas like a Hong Kong Christmas!
It’s big, it’s bright and it always buzzes with WinterFest merriment.
With its unique blend of Western tradition and Eastern love of festivals, Asia’s world city puts a smile on everyone’s face for the holiday season!
10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1… Happy New Year!!
‘shooting stars’ whizzed over Victoria Harbour. Hundreds of thousands of spectators gathered on the harbour-side to make wishes and wait for midnight.
