Winter Festivals In Hong Kong


If the standard, X-mas fairy-lights are too normal for you, Hong Kong’s WinterFest 2012 will provide you with a new holiday experience! Events such as an open-top bus night tour and harbour night cruise will give you must-photo memories of the harbor city!

You’ll already be busy planning where to go and what to do if you’re planning a vacation to Hong Kong during the remainder of this year. There’ll be events held from November through till January, 2013! No matter how your 2012 has been, let’s have fun at the end of the year together, anyways! A giant Christmas tree and carousel will light up your holiday mood. Love the Victoria Harbour? You should join our countdown celebrations as this year will be the biggest in the event’s history! An eight-minute pyrotechnic display will be the highlight of the evening and launch from both sea and land. You can see this display from various buildings in Wan Chai or The Convention and Exhibition Centre.

How about a world famous Art exhibition such as the Andy Warhol: 15 minutes Eternal' Exhibition? And finally don’t forget to catch the traditional Chinese activities – the Dragon and Lion Dance Extravaganza 2013, on the 1st day of 2013 !
