Special Recommendation

Shan Sheng Year Market (山城年宵)

Organized by groups of Central and Western District councillors, this special event aims at gathering the society, connecting local stores and neighbourhoods who share similar spirits and faith. Besides, the organizers of this market would like to promote green business among society during the Lunar New Year.

【山城年宵】我地一班中西區候任區議員已經準備好與大家迎接新一年。就著政府今年取消了年宵市場的乾貨攤位,我們認為可以藉著今次舉辦「山城年宵」,將相同理念的地區小店與街坊重新連結,為農歷新年傳統節目「行年宵」賦予新意,並在社區延續,齊上齊落。…

Hong Kong Well-wishing Festival

Praying for good luck for the upcoming year has been a local tradition for a long period of time. Besides, making the wish at the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree is exceptionally well preserved out of those wishing spots in Hong Kong. At that time, there will be a dedicated carnival related to Chinese New Year and local cuisines.

Time and duration: 25 JAN – 9 FEB | 8:45 – 18:30

Special wishing procedure: Writing down your wishes on a joss paper (called PO DIP), rolling it up into a cylinder and then throw as high as you can so that it lands higher in the tree. Higher the position, more likely to make the wish come true!

A Tour to Local Temple

The busiest time for all the Hong Kong temples is not other than during the celebration of Chinese New Year. If you want to enjoy the Lunar New Year like a local, you must spend some time travelling to one of the temples in Hong Kong.
