Hong Kong

An autonomous territory in Southeast Asia, known for its skyline, deep natural harbor, and dynamic blend of Eastern and Western cultures.

Tips from the community

Never one to do things by halves, Hong Kong puts on an epic New Year’s Eve party with a matching fireworks display on Victoria Harbor that’ll blow your socks right off. The key is a prime vantage point here and, being the fabulously stylish city it is, Hong Kong offers plenty of options. Join a junk boat cruise on the night to sail the harbor like an ancient trader or head to one of the many stunning, world-renowned rooftop bars for which the city is known for. Our money is on the Ritz-Carlton’s Ozone Bar, set on the 118th floor (yes, you read that right) of the ICC building in Tsim ShaTsui. Because if you’re gonna pay top dollar for a glass of bubbly on NYE, it may as well come with top views. Celebrating NYE in style in a standout city doesn’t come much better than this.

Hong Kong goes all out for new year with floats, the classic dragon parade, and a Lunar New Year fair. The harbour lights up with a huge fireworks display and international and local performers take the stage to sing. One of the most unusual and world-famous parts of Hong Kong’s festivities, however, takes place at the Sha Tin Racecourse on the third day of the New Year. Here, people take a chance on their new year’s luck and place bets on the horses. Hong Kong Disney throws its own events too, making a for a truly unique new year experience.
