Let's Celebrate New Years Eve 2014 in Hong Kong
Countdown - Fireworks, Events, Parties and Hotels
HK Island, Hong Kong, China
International New Years Eve celebration in Hong Kong is still surprisingly vibrant, possibly due to the high number of expats that make their home here, and due to the fantastically cosmopolitan nature of the place as well - there really is nowhere in the world quite like Hong Kong!
Since 2008, a 60-second numerical countdown to New Year's, consisting of LED lights and pyrotechnic display effects, on the facade of Two International Finance Centre was launched, followed by a firework display and an exhibition of the Symphony of Lights.
Countdown - Fireworks, Events & Party on NYE New Years Eve 2014 in Hong Kong
Best areas to join the party in the early evening at the Central, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui regions, where you can enjoy the best views of the night lights along the harbor. The eponymous Times Square shopping mall also holds their own New years eve ball drop event, mimicking the famous and much-watched event held at Times Square in New York City. Large scale outdoor elebrations also occur in Tsuen Wan, Sha Tin, Mong Kok, and Kwun Tong.
At midnight, if you can't get to or aren't inclined to jockey for position to watch the fireworks over Victoria Harbour, then you could instead head for the Two International Finance Centre, where there will be a large digital display countdown to midnight on an enormous digital clock mounted on the side of the building, followed by a firework display and an exhibition of the Symphony of Lights.
Traditional, the last day of the Gregorian calendar is not as widely marked in China and Hong Kong as the Chinese New Year, but one thing is for sure, there no shortage entertainment and partying in China. If you are in China to spend your New Year holidays then head towards Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of the most famous destinations for wining, dining and entertainment, with fireworks added into the equation at New Year time.
The dazzling midnight fireworks over the harbour provide the visual delight. The best vantage points to hang around with friends and family to watch the firework display are Central District, Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui harbourfront, Victoria Harbour, Culture Center, Tamar Site and Ocean Terminal.
