The Great November Feast is the perfect opportunity for travelling foodies to try all of the amazing cuisine that Hong Kong has to offer.
This month-long annual event showcases the best food and drink in the S.A.R., with a wide variety of events. You can choose from guided culinary tours, visits to markets, intros to local Cantonese grub, special menus at Michelin-starred restaurants, tastings of wine and craft beers, and lots of live entertainment.
The fun thing about the Great November Feast is not confined to one venue—instead it takes place all over Hong Kong. This also gives you the chance to visit new places, and explore culinary hubs that you might otherwise never even hear about.
