Hong Kong New Year’s Eve Celebrations for Kids (2023)

    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.

    Observation wheel

    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.
