Lunar New Year Night Hike & Blogger Meets Blogger

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.

The group hiked up the hills of Hong Kong Island. It was nice to get out and had some fresh air. Something different than eat and drink

What a beautiful view of the habour. We pitched up on the patch of grass at the side of the hill and cracked open the wine, cake and chocolate while waiting for the firework to start.
