Hong Kong Winter Festival

Hong Kong is marvelous city to visit during the season of Advent and Christmas, and the Winter Festival is filled with stunning beauty, twinkling lights, old world tradition and the sound of carolers, culminating in a fantastic display of fireworks over the city, reflected in Victoria Harbor.

Christmas in Hong Kong, also known as WinterFest, is a mixture of western tradition and the love of the festival as celebrated in the eastern culture. Together, they combine in magically decorated light displays, holiday wonderlands, and a centerpiece to awe and inspire.

The magical Christmas season in Hong Kong is like no other city; WinterFest in 2013-2014 is sure to be another spectacular event and should not be missed.

What to See

The 2012-2013 season WinterFest had a transformation of Statue Square into a Tiffany Christmas Wonderland, with an 18-meter, 59-foot tall Christmas tree and whirling carousel. This year, the festival will have another awe-inspiring theme.

Restaurants offer a range of delightful delicacies and dishes for the holiday tradition. Additionally shoppers can find quaint Christmas Village themes, carolers, beautiful decorations and an array of Holiday sales and festivities. Ending the holiday and welcoming the New Year, the pyrotechnics display over Victoria Harbor delights young and old and brings in the year with a bang.
