If you happen to be in town for one of the many Fireworks celebrations, such as National Day or Chinese New Year, you can make a reservation at one of the many restaurants of the HKCEC which offer superb views of the harbour.
The different restaurants at the HKCEC offer several packages for dinner, including Buffets or Set Dinners and an exclusive viewing zone is reserved for the diners at the Golden Bauhinia Square facing the Harbour so you can enjoy the fireworks.
The focal point of the square is the "Forever Blooming Bauhinia" Sculpture which was presented to the people by the Central Chinese Government during the Handover ceremony in 1997 which took place at the Convention Centre.
The Bauhinia is Hong Kong's national flower and is also the emblem used in the Hong Kong Flag.
There is a daily flag-raising ceremony at the Square at 7:45 a.m. The National Anthem is played by the Police Band followed by a 10-minute musical performance by the Police Pipe Band.
