The Hong Kong National Day is celebrated on October 1st every year since 1997 after it was handed over to the Chinese by the British. On this day the People’s Republic of China was founded. Flag raising ceremonies, parades, and fireworks happen during the celebrations. The Victoria Harbor has spectacular fireworks and runs for 20 minutes. This is a mind-blowing show stealer as the firecrackers set off from 4 differentlocations in the middle of Victoria Harbor. Almost an entire week is off during this festival and you might have to make some prior bookings if you plan to visit Hong Kong during this festive season as almost all hotels run at full capacity.
When: October 1st
