Summer is one of the two most popular travel periods in the year. It is in fact a great season to travel to Hong Kong because of the coveted summer sales and a huge wave of events, many of which are family-friendly, including the HKTB’s signature Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival.
Hong Kong Dragon Boat Carnival
Around 5,000 paddlers representing 159 clubs from 10 countries and regions competed for 24 championships in the 2014 CCB (Asia) Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races. The HK Express Fancy Dress Race and the signature San Miguel BeerFest were added to the carnival to fuel the event with extra fun. With support from sponsors, community programmes, such as the CCB (Asia) “Unique Hong Kong” Dragon Boat Design Competition and the Chevalier Group Youth Dragon Boat Training Programme were organised. More than 160,000 visitors and local residents filled the Tsim Sha Tsui East harbourfront to enjoy the excitement.
