    It was truly a unique experience to celebrate New Year in Hongkong onced in our lifetime. The fireworks was amazing. So beautiful! It is probably not so exotic anymore for the locals but for tourists like us, we enjoyed it a lot. We were advised by the Filipino staff at the restaurant in Al Dente where we had dinner that we don't need to go down to the harbour. It was enough to be where we are and we could see part of the fireworks. They said it would be difficult to get out of the crowd therefore best to watch it from the building where Al Dente was located. I think they were right. We got beautiful pictures and film out of the fireworks. Though my pictures included cranes, it was still beautiful. They are building something beside the HK Convention Centre. Hopefully next year, they will be done with the construction so tourists going to HK will have even better views.

    This has been my second visit to watch the Cheung Chau Bun festival. The ferry service (pier 5 from Central) took an hour (normal service). Ferry fare per person was HKD 20.20 which was doubled the usual price due to the festive occasion.

    I wanted to catch the "deity parade" which was taking place between 2pm to 4pm. I arrived on the island at 11am and the place was already very crowded. Took a while to reach the Pak Tai temple and saw the three 60 ft tall bun towers.

    Bought the sesame filling "ping on" buns which was sold at HKD 9 each. There were chairs placed outside the shops or residents home for people to sit and watch the "deity" parade. The chairs were going for rental rates between HKD50 to 100. If one doesn't wish to pay for seats, then do arrive early to reserve a good standing spot.

    The "deity" parade was fun to watch as the children were nicely dressed. However, do be prepared for the heat, crowd and loud drum sounds. Also, the climbing competition for the bun towers takes place around mid nite. The results will be covered on TV news the next day if one doesn't wish to stay so late into the night to watch. About 80%of the shops serve vegetarian meals during this period.

    It was definitely worth a visit to this fair. There were many other things beside flowers for sale. There were many food stalls and other stalls selling toys, New Year-related items, and souvenirs.

    Expect to do a lot of walking. The fair covers a large section of Victoria Park on Hong Kong Island. Nearest MTR station is Tin Hau. There is no admission charge to the fair. The flowers are discounted on the last day of the fair.

    Visited Ocean Park on 24th Oct 2019 Thursday, it was not that crowded given the current situation in Hong Kong.
    Most of the attractions no need to queue long except the night time Halloween attraction.
    However we did not participate the Halloween Fest as we are with 2 small young kids with us, never play those thrill rides also. But my kids love the Halloween Trick or Treat because they got lots of candy, haha...

    If compare Disneyland to Ocean Park, I would recommend Disneyland, more fun for us.
    That's my two cents!

    Something different to do and definitely something fun to experience once. Kind of on the pricey side though and even the "tasters" are so small that it doesn't justify the cost.

    There is a new paperback book out, called "Living and Working in Hong Kong: One Couple's Adventure. For many years now I have been doing reviews for Trip Adviser. Now there is a book that tells stories of One Couple's Adventure while Living and Working In Hong Kong. It is available on Amazon.com and has many colorful pictures from all over Hong Kong and parts of Asia.

    My understanding is that this is an annual flower show (always around Mar timeframe). This is the second time that I visited, and its still great. Lots to see.

    Not that the admission was much to start with, but if you're 60 or older, you get in for free.

    And if you get tired of walking and looking, there's an area available for snacks and drinks.

    A relatively recent minor attraction just west of the Golden Bauhinia Square is the Ani-Com Park@Harbour"FUN". Here visitors will find 36 ani-com characters spaced out around the promenade area between the HKCEC building and Victoria Harbour. These are fun, interesting to view and to photograph. They are also a fair child-friendly attraction for those looking for things to do with little ones.

    In short, this is basically HK Island's answer to the fun Comic Ave. of Stars found at the east entrance of Kowloon Park on the peninsula. The character installations are still relatively new and in good shape, not sun bleached at all. There is artist and character information provided next to each installation. At the east end, there is a map showing the location and names of the 36 ani-com characters as well.

    Woooo...
    this year 2016 HK Disneyland had been taken over from villains like Tokyo Disneyland!

    The atmosphere and their decoration is especially for holly halloween from middle of Sep.
    They have "villains night out" you would meet the infamous Disney villains are celebrating Halloween season.
    "Villains garden" you can take photo with them although you better take your time to que up, but it's worth to do that as it's especially for this season.
    "The nightmare experiment" also you must try, it's the only one attraction this year you can enjoy for halloween. (Last year was more we remember)
    Either you are couple or family, or even friends... they will bring you into the nightmare by Disney dark side characters.
    (They are only available in Cantonese)

    Well, of course as you expect special costumed Mickey and friends are also waiting for you to have a magical day with you, You can enjoy Halloween theme parade too!

    Goodies and meals is also especially prepared for Halloween, makes you addicted to them more.

    Approximately you can spend half day maximum as the size of park is not so huge,
    Make sure to wear comfortable shoes~

    Trick or treat, enjoy your magical day in Disney's haunted Halloween 2016!

    I worked here for 3 days at the trade only Food Fair. Very busy and the public halls were packed full. It's a massive event for HK with huge queues in surrounding blocks. I've done a Lot of foods expos but this one is the biggest.
    Service and support is outstanding

    Maybe I expected more because someone had biged it up.
    The event is really crowded and lots of people push to get close to take 8001 photos of the same flower. I guess i'm fortunate enough to come from a country with a variety of flowers and colours so when something like this hits the city everyone wants to see it.
    If flowers are your passion you'll love the place but if you're someone who likes a nice garden you won't miss out if you don't go.

    Celebrating the lunar new year in Hong Kong is colorful, crowded and slightly chaotic -- it all adds to the fun! One of the things I like to do is hunt down interesting and unique signs and oversized displays celebrating the new year's zodiac character. 2019 is the year of the pig. Given the connotation of "pig" in the U.S., some of the signage made for delightful double entrendes! The display pictured here was on Peking Road just a few steps away from the crowds on Nathan Road.
