The holiday season is full of fun and excitement. While Thanksgiving has just passed and Christmas and Hanukkah are fast approaching, it can be easy to forget the New Year rolling around. Therefore, if you’re looking for something to welcome in the new year, here are some of the events we recommend getting involved in to see in the New Year in Hong Kong
Fireworks at Victoria Harbour
Gather en-masse with surely tens of thousands of Hong Kongers and Tourists alike to ring in the New Year with Hong Kong’s world-famous New Year’s Eve Fireworks display. Find a place (if you can beat the crowds) in Central or Tsim Sha Tsui to watch the spectacle ensue.
Overlooking the harbour and gaining an unobstructed view of the sky and shore. Although it may be closed before midnight, for families with younger kids who won’t stay up too late, it is a fantastic place to take in the sights and get a break from the amassing crowds below. Additionally, it is located right next to the AIA carnival, a fantastic spot for the later night.
Various companies across Hong Kong run organised trips that can be catered for larger groups wishing to celebrate the new year. Be aware that these fill up months in advance and you will need to be prepared to likely share boats with strangers if you haven’t gotten your booking in on time.
All through the holiday season and longer, the AIA Carnival is always an exciting time for thrill seekers and amusement fair enthusiasts alike. The European Carnival is here ll through the holidays and well into early next year. With hair-raising rides to adorable party games, there is something to do for children of all ages
Disneyland NYE party
With the recent grand opening of Hong Kong Disneyland’s World of Frozen, it is sure to be a fantastic time. Therefore, have your very own white Christmas and New Year in Hong Kong (minus the real snow). With Disney’s Elsa, Ana, Olaf, and the other denizens of Aerendell. For those who have more time off this holiday, consider spending the holiday week at the Disneyland hotel.
