Lunar New Year Flower Markets


Flower markets are an important feature of the annual Lunar New Year celebrations in Hong Kong. Fresh, colourful flowers and fruits are very auspicious at this time of year, signalling new life, growth, and health. You’ll see homes, businesses, hotels and markets beautifully decorated with flowers, potted plants and citrus fruits at this time.

While there are more than a dozen flower markets being held during the Chinese New Year holidays, there are two big ones that everyone tries to attend.

Victoria Park

Victoria Park is the epicentre of the flower markets on Hong Kong Island, and the biggest in all of Hong Kong. This multipurpose event venue in Causeway Bay becomes a hub of activity with flower stalls selling every imaginable flower and fruit. There will also be entertainment, kids’ activities, and special food stalls selling new year treats and snacks. Though they are open during the daytime, they get quite busy in the cooler evenings, making it a fun and festive night out to enjoy.

Fa Hui Park

This flower market in Mong Kok is the biggest in all of Kowloon, and located next to the year-round Flower Market, Goldfish Market, and Bird Market. The closest station is Prince Edward MTR Station, which is just a few minutes’ walk away.
