Hong Kong has a regular line-up of fireworks shows for three major events: National Day (October 1), New Year’s Eve, and Chinese New Year. The government has also planned a series of monthly fireworks and drone displays to coincide with important events on the 852’s cultural calendar, such as Labour Day and the Dragon Boat Festival.

Where are the best places to watch the fireworks shows?

The Hong Kong Tourism Board says that the best vantage points for the June fireworks show will be the Water Sports and Recreation Precinct and HarbourChill, where visitors can hear music and sound effects during the event. However, there will be some areas in the area where the view of the display will be obstructed, such as the Wan Chai Temporary Promenade. The display will not be visible from Tsim Sha Tsui or anywhere else on the Kowloon side of Victoria Harbour.
