Not to be confused with Chinese New Year in Hong Kong, which is the biggest celebration of the year, New Year in Hong Kong, meaning December 31st, is also the source of big parties and even bigger hangovers. Below, you’ll find our top recommendations, from Hong Kong’s own Times Square to club parties, to enjoy the countdown.
1. Times Square New Years Countdown
The grandstand event of Hong Kong’s New Year’s Eve celebrations, the Times Square countdown, like its inspiration, is the focal point for those who want to join a crowd as the clock ticks down. There will be live music and entertainment before 2010 rolls around.
2. Victoria Harbour New Years Celebration
Arguably more enjoyable than the Times Square celebrations above, the New Year fireworks over the buildings of Hong Kong Island are truly spectacular. Best viewed from Victoria Harbor on one of the all-in food and drink cruises, the skyscraper skyline, the most spectacular in the world, is the backdrop for a spectacular light, sound and firework show. If you can’t make it onto a boat, the views from the Avenue of Stars in Tsim Sha Tsui are equally impressive.
This year, there will be a brand new design of the fireworks, which the numbers will be shot from the top of the skyscrapers on the island
3. New Year Parties in Lan Kwai Fong
Focal point for the city’s revellers, New Years Eve is the biggest party of the year in Lan Kwai Fong, which is a popular expatriate haunt in Hong Kong for drinking, clubbing and dining. It has been so crowded that accident actually happened some years ago...

Happy Christmas Eve to everybody :)
I went to 'Tokyo Midtown' to see Christmas illuminations.
It was cold day but I never felt cold for a while...
Everbody just stared this beautiful scenery... :)
And when I turned around, Tokyo Tower was there, towering a little away with 'HEART' :)
At Ritz Carlton Tokyo...unfortunately I could not afford to have dinner there..just snap a picture of tree....:) I'm dreaming...having dinner oneday in the future at 47th floor...!
Lovely candle brothers, I caught their eyes... :)
Wonder you already have been somewhere to see illuminations?
Or spending time with families or friends?
Or working like us?
Well, it does not matter, have a peaceful and beautiful day today everybody ;)
Last night we had a candle night which featured Christmas party and Bonenkai (the year-end party) at café.
Bernhard(Germany), Alice(Australia) and Darren(Canada) (from the left) enjoyed themselves in a relaxed atmosphere. They are all residents of Sakura House. http://www.sakura-house.com/
How are you going to spend on Christmas Eve?
I would like to spend a quiet evening on Christmas Eve rather than going out on the town … but problem is I have no one who will spend time together. I am sure I am going to spend ‘lonely Christmas’ Is anyone who could rescue me???
She makes snow falling, ah, well done!!
