In the past, the limelight of the celebrations and countdown to midnight has been projected in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. This year, the countdown clock will be displayed on the gigantic façade of the recently opened M+ Museum, the spectacular structure by Herzog & de Meuron with a spectacular setting in Victoria Harbour.

The live countdown normally starts at 11:00 pm on December 31, we expect a similar set up this year. You can tune in the HKTB website or the social media platforms to watch:

Lan Kwai Fong New Year's Eve Street Party

Lan Kwai Fong Christmas Street Party

One huge street party...

As if this wasn't already the liveliest spot in Hong Kong, during the merry season Lan Kwai Fong goes all out with its renowned Christmas street party and then a week later, ready to do it again, to welcome the New Year.

Food, drink, entertainment... all restaurants, bars and clubs will be at capacity so reserve early!

When?: New Year's Eve December 31, 2021
Where?: Streets of Lan Kwai Fong. Take the MTR to Central Station Exit D2, on to Theatre Lane and up D'Aguilar Street.

Here's looking back at the last decade of celebrations from the countdown to 2009 to the last one in 2020. You can see how the spectacle has evolved from the earlier years when the focal point was at the IFC center, then the tallest building in Hong Kong, and in later years transitioning to the Hong Kong Convention Center with fireworks being launched from barges set up in the middle of Victoria Harbour.
