Chinese New Year
When one of the world’s most densely populated nations ushers in the Lunar Chinese New Year it’s time for huge scale celebrations. For the 10 day lunar period in the late January or February. Chinese New Year Hong Kong welcomes 1,000,000 extra visitors seeking the hectic carnival atmosphere. Fiery dragon dancers lead the legendary new Year parade, joined by endless floats, musicians and sizzling street performers.
The festive atmosphere that embraced the city showcased many traditional customs that make Hong Kong, Asia’s world city, the premier destination for visitors looking to celebrate 2013 Chinese New Year in style!
A street party of engaging performers, cycling acts and dance performances was held prior to the Parade. There were over 110,000 spectators along the parade route and the Tsim Sha Tsui waterfront, while millions more across the globe tuned in to television broadcasts.
Many visitors will take a trip to make their wishes at the Lam Tsuen, home of the famous Wishing Trees, the Wishing Lanterns Lighting Ceremony, an ‘wishing-placards-throwing’ competition and more.
