New Year’s Eve Fireworks and Countdown

Cancelled

If you’re actually in Hong Kong on the very last day of the year, consider yourself truly lucky to be celebrating New Year’s Eve in this incredible city.

Victoria Harbour, which is stunning even on a normal day, becomes painted in millions of colours during an elaborate fireworks display after the countdown to the new year.

As you can imagine, all along the harbour front—both on the Hong Kong Island side and Kowloon side—becomes incredibly packed with people, all looking up to the skies in anticipation.

If you plan well ahead, you can book a hotel room with a harbour view, and simply enjoy the million-dollar display from the comfort and quiet of your room or balcony.

If you must be down on the ground, however, here are the top spots for fireworks viewing:

Kowloon:

  • Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade and the Avenue of Stars
  • West Kowloon Cultural District
  • Hung Hom Promenade
  • Hong Kong Island:

  • Central Harbourfront and all along the Central and Western District Promenade to Tamar Park in Admiralty
  • Golden Bauhinia Square in Wan Chai
  • Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park in Sheung Wan
  • The crowds can be a bit overwhelming for visitors unaccustomed to the density, so to escape the hordes you have a few options. The first is to book a harbour cruise, and enjoy the show from the water. The second is to book a table at one of Hong Kong’s many high rise bars, but typically you have to buy a ticket. The third is to head to Victoria Peak, and see the show from above.

    To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
