Festivals, Public Holidays and Events in Hong Kong

This is a list of holidays in Hong Kong.  All government offices and banks close on public holidays.  Beware of the Chinese New Year because some shops and restaurants close for a few days. (Please refer to Chinese New Year page for more detail) 

Besides Chinese New Year, Mid Autumn Festival, Cheung Chau Bun Festival and Dragon Boat Festival are the ones with more characteristics.  Try the moon cakes and walk around with a candle lit lantern on Mid Autumn Festival day.  International dragon boat races are held every year.  Cheung Chau Bun Festival is celebrated locally on Cheung Chau, a small outlying island of HK.  Marvelous procession attracts tens of thousands locals and tourists each year to this fishing village.

Western festivals are widely celebrated in Hong Kong too.  We have long weekend holidays for Easter in HK. Shopping malls have prepared decorations and activities for families during the holiday.  As for Christmas, sometimes I feel the atmosphere of Christmas in HK  is stronger than the traditional Chinese New Year!
