Traditionally Hong Kong has firework display on the second day of Lunar New Year. As one can imagine, this is a very popular event amongst the locals and tourists alike, and often the habour front gets really packed.
Instead of heading to the habour front, Hayley and I would head up to a ‘secret location’ up the hills of Hong Kong Island to see the firework. Technically speaking, it’s not really a ‘secret location’ per se, but I would love to keep it relatively quiet so we can enjoy it rather than turning it into a Mongkok!
This year Betty from the Betty Has a Panda and her partner Mr. Panda joined our hiking group for a nice stroll and a lovely picnic of wine, cakes and chocolate. It was their first time to visit Hong Kong during Lunar New Year, so it was really nice to show them a very different side of Hong Kong. Most importantly, it was lovely to meet them for the first time.
What was your Lunar New Year like? What were you up to? Did you do something unusual?
