In an exciting city like Hong Kong, there is always something going on, be it events or festivals and it changes the landscape of the city tremendously. If you’re lucky enough to be here during one of these Hong Kong festivals, it’s going to be very memorable indeed. Thanks to the huge number of festivals celebrated in Hong Kong, it has become the go-to place for events and festivals in Asia.
While cultural festivals such as Chinese New Year are celebrated with a lot of pomp and grandeur, there are other festivals too which are fantastic. They are often brought to life with spectacular fireworks display that is reserved only for a few events throughout the year. During a festival or an event, you will not find reasonable hotels or flights. You will have to pay more. So, book in advance if you want to be in the city to enjoy these amazing Hong Kong events.
Everything turns red and gold during the biggest Hong Kong festival in February. Dancing lions and dragons on the streets compete with drums and gongs to create a spectacular event.
Held every June, this is a festival that dates back to the 3rd century. The long narrow Dragon Boats race each other to the hypnotic beat of drums.
Hong Kong is lit up brightly with lanterns and fire dragons while carnivals and fairs add to the air of festivity. Moon cakes are in huge demand at this time.
These festivals are marked by lots of fireworks, colour and an exciting sense of bonhomie that is easily evident everywhere. Right from the streets to the shops and malls where people celebrate these festivals grandly.
