Hong Kong Chinese New Year Celebrations

Chinese New Year celebrations in Hong Kong are citywide and possibly the most spectacular and boisterous in the world. From fireworks over Victoria Harbour to a well-wishing festival, horse races, flower markets, and lion and dragon dances, the city buzzes with energy and festivities during the most important Chinese festival of the year. And of course, there is the HKTB’s International Chinese New Year Night Parade, a massive party that fills Tsim Sha Tsui with cheers.
