Festival

Experiencing a major Chinese festival in Hong Kong
Hong Kong Festival
Is an enchanting and mesmerising adventure.

Hong Kong's major traditional festivals are colourful and noisy affairs, at which thousands upon thousands of people turn out to join the celebrations. Fireworks, festive feasting, lion and dragon dancers, incense smoke, Chinese opera, mah jong, fortune-telling, carnivals and parades come together in a variety of combinations to create a uniquely festive atmosphere seen nowhere else in the world.

The festivals are among the best ways to experience the unique culture of this modern East-meets-West destination. There are festivals throughout the year that you are sure to enjoy.

Join a tour group to get the best seats in the house during any of the city's festivals.
