Hong Kong fireworks cancelled

Hong Kong Tourism Board have confirmed the cancellation of this year’s New Year’s Eve fireworks in Victoria Harbour. Hong Kong Police have recommended the event’s cancellation, citing safety concerns following months of protests in Hong Kong.

Current plans for 31st December celebrations include an enhanced version of the regular ‘light show’ and some smaller scale rooftop fireworks, although exact details are yet to be confirmed.

But don’t let the lack of fireworks dampen your enthusiasm for an NYE party, Hong Kong’s bars and restaurants will still be putting on lots of fun events – check out our NYE party guide here!
