Hong Kong

Celebrate Spring Festival in Hong Kong style. After dinner with family, you can visit the Flower Market to welcome the New Year with locals. The float parade at Tsim Sha Tsui on the Lunar New Year is the high point of the celebrations. It will be held at dawn, with 13 floats and 21 performing teams taking part. The parade is followed by firework show at Victoria Harbor at 8 pm the next day. On the third day, Hong Kong residents usually visit Che Kung Temple to roll the copper windmill for good luck. They later visit Sha Tin Racecourse for Chinese New Year Race Day that runs from noon to 6 pm.
