Best spots to watch fireworks in Hong Kong

Victoria Harbour

Hong Kong fireworks take place on Victoria Harbour between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon. As the trade of fireworks is illegal in the territory, the pyrotechnic party is organized very well and usually sponsored by the local government through the Hong Kong tourism department. At the New Year’s fireworks display in Hong Kong, there is a focal point for the party where the official countdown clock used in the countdown is projected at the centre of the pyrotechnic show. It is really dazzling sight with a fantastic atmosphere.

Recently, the spotlight and party centre moved from the IFC tower to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai, also on the side of Hong Kong Island.

The range and duration of Hong Kong New Year’s fireworks have been extended in the last two years. Therefore, you can watch Hong Kong turn-around fireworks from virtually anywhere overlooking Victoria Harbour.

Over the years, new features and enhancements are constantly being added. The “Shooting Stars” characterize the countdown celebrations preceding the fireworks display. In addition, Cannons of light that start an hour before the countdown with splashes of light exploding every 15 minutes from the rooftops of the buildings surrounding Victoria Harbour. Moreover, the fireworks display added fireworks with smiley faces and heart-shaped fireworks bursting in the sky. The display of fireworks is always synchronized with the unique composed music. The celebrations are truly extraordinary and the fireworks are bright and colourful!
