Firework at 2009 Hong Kong Chinese New Year

Travel Hong Kong during Chinese New Year has a bonus of admiring our brilliant fireworks. It is a tradition here that at 8pm on the second day of Chinese New Year, there is a firework show at the Victoria Harbour, which usually lasts about 20 minutes.

Firework is an extremely challenge subject to shoot, even for professional photographers. So, why not simply admiring? Here I am going to suggest a number of Hong Kong hotels best for admiring fireworks. But please make sure to book a harbour view room, or you are going to be upset. If you are booking a table at a restaurant, please also make sure it has a harbour view.
