What to do in Hong Kong During Chinese New Year

Here are some of our favourite things to do in Hong Kong during Chinese New Year:


We all know Hong Kong as a concrete jungle, but for a day, escape the mayhem of Central and head to the city’s countryside to hit up some of the best hikes (yes, there is actual greenery in Hong Kong). Enjoy sweeping views of the Lantau coastline, Stanley, and a picturesque romantic view at the summit. Remember to hydrate and have your battery on full for all the Instagram stories you’ll be capturing.

Culture & Tradition

Of course, nothing is more important than paying your respects to culture and tradition. This is why we always inform guests about the public tours of our country’s elegant and enchanting temples. In fact, you can easily drop by Man Mo Temple just along Hollywood Road. Known for its uniquely-shaped incense coils, this temple is perfect for praying for blessing and the best luck this new year.

Eat & Drink

If you want to grab something to eat and drink, you’ll be anything but short on selection. The various restaurants around the city are the perfect place for you to get a fix of the most delicious dishes in the country.
