New Year's Eve Fireworks in Hong Kong

New Year's Eve Countdown views  from TST top of Sky100

The Fireworks will be held at midnight December 31, 2023 and will be the longest ever New Year's Eve fireworks display so far. We will be treated to a whole 12 minutes of a synchronised "pyromusical" including fireworks, pyrotechnics, music and lights, all beautifully choreographed.

The Countdown starts 60 seconds before midnight, with the focal point of the countdown reflected on the facade of the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre

The fireworks will be launched from the barges set up in the harbour, lighting effects and fireworks shoot out of rooftops of buildings and landmarks on both sides with many exploding high in the sky above Victoria Harbour. The numerals "2024" and New Year blessings will of course be displayed on the facade of the Convention Center.

"Shooting Stars" and bursts of shimmering lights will be launched from rooftops of skyscrapers around the harbour every 15 minutes as we get closer to the countdown.

You can practically watch the fireworks from just about anywhere in Hong Kong but you need to stake out your viewing place waaaay before midnight as most public places will be packed, and remember, road closures start as early as 6:30 pm.

When?: December 31, 2023 - Countdown starts 60 seconds before midnight.
Where?: Anywhere within view of the harbour.
How much?: Free! at all public viewing areas.

What if you can't be here? The HKTB will be live streaming the countdown on its Facebook page and DiscoverHongKong YouTube Channel so be sure to tune in!

Where are the best spots to watch?

Which side of the harbour? As a general rule, you should watch from whatever side you are staying and plan on walking. Trying to catch a taxi or the packed MTR on the way home when every one else is also trying to do the same is quite challenging to say the least.

Also consider whether you want to have the focal point of the countdown in view or just want to enjoy the fireworks. The focal point is normally at the Convention Center, so best view if you want to watch that is from the Kowloon side.

One of our favourite spots to watch from Kowloon in Tsim Sha Tsui, you can watch all along the Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade from the Star Ferry Terminal to the New World Centre in the East.

Another popular vantage point for fireworks is the Hung Hom Bypass which is closed to traffic between Salisbury Road and Hung Hom Road, and the Hung Hom Promenade.

If staying in the Hong Kong Island side, consider the area around the Convention Centre and Bauhinia Square or anywhere along the Central Waterfront Promenade that extends from the Central Star Ferry Pier to Tamar Park and has elevated walkways for great views.

Here are more free vantage points, map and tips for enjoying the fireworks!

New Year's Eve Fireworks Cruises

Watching the fireworks from a Harbour Cruise in the middle of Victoria Harbour as the entire sky lits up and splashes of colour and light explode all around you is truly a once-in-a-lifetime enthralling experience. There simply are no words to describe it.

Another plus besides the front-row fifty-yard-line awesome views is the fact that you avoid the crowds and, this is a big one, there will be free-flowing drinks AND toilets available...

New Year's Eve fireworks cruises are extremely popular, so needless to say, you need to book as soon as you firm up your plans as they sell out quite quickly!
