The people in the city certainly know how to party! Right from the festive season kicking in till the Christmas celebrations and to the fireworks at the Victoria Harbour, this New Year in Hong Kong can be a fantastic experience. Here we have rounded up various places to have a blast for New Years in Hong Kong.

Take a cruise, witness the remarkable fireworks show which is deemed one of the best in the world. Have a magical start to the new year at Victoria Harbour, the ultimate place to visit to welcome the new year in Hong Kong. Pictures can't do justice to the beauty of the Hong Kong skyline on this night. The show, which lasts about 10 minutes, will cost around HKD 14 million this time around.

2. Wish Upon a Star

It doesn't just start at midnight, but an hour before. Make sure you have a good spot in the area so you can enjoy the small firework show that starts at 11 PM and shoots crackers every 15 minutes. The fireworks are in 4 colours, green standing for happiness, red representing sweetness, gold for fortune, and silver for health. This mini-show that precedes the actual show at midnight is called Wish Upon a Star.

3. Parade
