What's on in Hong Kong
Chinese New Year (February)
Hong Kong really knows how to celebrate the new year. Expats who have relocated here can join in the festivities and revelry by hanging decorations on their front doors, and enjoying the street parades and parties. Don’t miss the glittering night parade and the firework display finale.
Hong Kong Sevens (March)One of the biggest sporting events in the country, and a must for any expat who hails from a rugby-playing nation, the Hong Kong Sevens take place each year in March. Rugby fanatics should head to the festive South Stand party, where the music and beer keep the energy in the crowd alive.
Cheung Chau Bun Festival (May)
By far, one of Hong Kong’s most curious and intriguing events, the Cheung Chau Bun Festival honours Pak Tai, God of the Sea, by erecting massive iced-bun towers, among other things. The festival is said to ensure fair weather and a good catch at the start of the fishing season, as well as to ward off evil spirits. A cultural treat for expats living in Hong Kong.
