Celebrated on the first moon of the Lunar calendar, the Hong Kong Chinese Festival is one of the most colourful events that one certainly must witness. For travellers who are also passionate about experiencing various cultures, this is one of the best celebrations to experience. The date usually falls on either January or February.
The festival then continues for fifteen days at a stretch leading to the Lantern Festival which coincides with the full moon day. Throughout the fifteen days of celebration, the streets will be lit up with red and gold lanterns and sounds of drums and gongs too. Even hotels like Dorsett Mongkok get into the mood of festivities and have various offers available. Don’t forget the mysterious Chinese dragons that take the streets by storm with amazing vigour. The flower shops see more buyers than usual too. If you are planning to visit at this time of year, its best to make bookings at a budget hotel in Hong Kong in advance.
