Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year is without a doubt the biggest (and most-adored) festival of the lunar calendar, with 15-days packed with age-old traditions, cultural festivities and family celebrations! Starting on the first day of the new year (31 January), right up until the Spring Lantern Festival (14 February), locals flock to aromatic temples to pray for good fortune, fill themselves with traditional foods and string up bright red lanterns.

In true Hong Kong style, the city will welcome the Year of the Horse with festive flamboyancy, timeless traditions and that unique touch of cosmopolitan flair! Festivities are spread out over three weeks, so whether you’re squeezing into festive flower markets and incense-filled temples, gasping at breathtaking pyrotechnics or cheering at lively sports events, you’ll be sure to experience a Chinese New Year here like no other!
