A variety of arts festivals manifest the diversity and vibrancy of Hong Kong's cultural life. On the calendar are Hong Kong Arts FestivalHong Kong International Film Festival and Le French May in spring, Chinese Opera Festival and International Arts Carnival in summer, and, in alternate autumns, New Vision Arts Festival and World Cultures Festival.

Hong Kong has two world-class theme parks. Ocean Park Hong Kong, featuring spectacular seaside and cliff-side attractions connected by cable car, is adding an all-weather indoor-outdoor waterpark, which is expected to be completed in the first half of 2019. The two hotels are scheduled for completion in 2018 and 2021 respectively. 

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort is one of the most popular and best themed resorts in Asia, featuring more than 100 attractions. The much-anticipated “Iron Man Experience” and the “Disney Explorers Lodge” resort-style hotel were launched in 2017. The construction works for the new attractions under the expansion and development plan at the Phase 1 site of the resort is now under way. The plan will bring new attractions to the resort progressively from 2018 to 2023.
