27 exhibitions and pyrotechnics to the waterfront promenade. The Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign, meanwhile, will bring a range of night-time entertainment, arts, cultural and other events to the city from mid-autumn until early 2024. Time-honoured traditional events are also returning. The Cheung Chau Bun Carnival in May saw participants compete in the Bun Scrambling Competition and the Climbing Carnival, while the Hong Kong International Dragon Boat Races returned to Victoria Harbour after a four-year hiatus on 24-25 June. In September, the quaint neighbourhood of Tai Hang came alive during the Mid-Autumn Festival with the Fire Dragon Dance, which involved over 300 performers carrying a glowing dragon through the streets in keeping with a tradition dating back to the 19th century. Hong Kong provides an exciting destination for cruise guests, whether they are looking to immerse themselves in the city’s rich past or wanting to become a part of the vision of its future. Cruise lines looking to bring their guests to experience everything the city has to offer will also find a valuable partner in the HKTB. “The HKTB is committed to working closely with global cruise industry stakeholders to create once-in-a-lifetime cruise experiences and expand the customer base for the entire industry,” concludes Wong.
