Festivals Tips (6)


Favorite thing The Christmas season is a great one here in Hong Kong. You really should come by and check it out at Christmas time. Starting right about the time of American Thanksgiving they start setting up the square with the Christmas village and large tree.

I really cant explain why but it was a surprise to see this and I was very thrilled to have seen a seasonal festival

Mid-Autumn Festival

Favorite thing Mid-Autumn Festival is celebrated according to the lunar calendar and it corresponds to the15th of the 8th month. It is said that this is the time when the moon is the fullest and brightest during the year.
Families will get together for the dinner and kids will play with the multicolor lanterns. Throughout all the city, you would see tons of lanterns decorating residence buildings.

Fondest memory Every year, lots of families gather at Victoria Park (Causeway Bay) to admire the bright moon, eat mooncakes and light the lanterns and candles. I would strongly recommand a stroll in Victoria Park in the evening because the lit lanterns & candles are such a beautiful sight.

This year, we can see a HUGE lantern (the biggest in the world) and different giant lanterns lit up in Victoria Park. Also, there is the traditionnal 'Fire Dragon', made up of burning incense and carried by 20/30 men accross a neighborhood in Tai Hang, Causeway Bay.

Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree

Fondest memory The Wishing Tree, located near the Tin Hou Temple in Lam Tsuen (TAI PO), is usually crowded during the Chinese New Year. The tree is laden with wishes written on bright red paper.

Take the Kowloon Canton Railway (KCR) to Tai Po Market Station and transit for a bus or taxi to Lam Tsuen.

Go to my TAI PO page for see more about the Wishing Tree.

Chinese New Year Festival

Favorite thing If you happen to be in Hong Kong during the Chinese New Year or the anniversary of the handover (1st July), you should definitely not miss the fireworks on Victoria Harbour.
They are really beautiful and impressive. The picture was taken from my parents' appartment on the 5th anniversary marking the return of HK back to China.

the heat
the people

the scenery
and after i went to the Po Lon Monestary

Yulan Festival (Ghost Festival)

Fondest memory On lunar month July is Chinese Yulan Festival (Ghost Festival). People believe that the hell's gate is opened and all ghosts will release to the human world. Pilgrims burn paper money and scatter food on the streets to treat the ghosts.
