Customs & Heritage

You don’t have to look far in Hong Kong to see customs and traditions being honoured. Chinese festivals such as Chinese New Year, Mid-Autumn festival and Tuen Ng (Dragon Boat festival) are celebrated enthusiastically by locals and expats. Other events unique to Hong Kong include the Tai Hang Fire Dragon Dance and Cheung Chau Bun Festival.

Hong Kong is famed for its cuisine. From celebrity chefs and Michelin-starred restaurants to street food and local snacks, there is always something to tickle the taste buds at all hours of the day and night.

Hong Kong’s respect for its history and traditions is evident in government-led initiatives to preserve and revitalise historic buildings and promote its culture and traditions for future generations to enjoy.
