ring in the new year with the Hong Kong new year countdown & fireworks

The Hong Kong New Year Fireworks and Countdown celebration is one of the most anticipated events of the year. On New Year’s Eve, join the throngs of cheering revellers along Hong Kong’s waterfront and usher in 2017 with a bang!


The radiant Victoria Harbour is the belle of the ball for Hong Kong’s spectacular New Year countdown on 31 December 2016. Best viewed from Victoria Harbour, the New Year fireworks over the backdrop of spectacular skyscrapers of Hong Kong Island is one of the most spectacular light, sound and firework show in the world. Ring in the new year with a ten minute pyro musical display lighting up the skies against the iconic Hong Kong skyline. Alternatively, the views from the shorelines in Tsim Sha Tsui are equally impressive.


Whether you watch it along the water’s edge, from a boat on the harbour or up high in a skyscraper, it’s worth planning early to ensure a prime spot!
