Night Tours

Hong Kong at night is a glittering, shimmering galaxy of lights – and that’s just on a normal day. When a holiday like WinterFest comes along, the city really gets dressed up! This year’s seasonal get-up will include colourful illuminations decorating buildings along major thoroughfares and around the harbour. Hop on a nighttime open-top bus tour or a harbour night cruise to take it all in.
