Highlights Attraction in Hong Kong

Dragon Boat Festival - June 2, 2014

The Dragon Boat Festival, also known as the Tuen Ng Festival, commemorates the death of Qu Yuan, a Chinese National Hero. In a protest against corrupt rulers, Qu drowned himself in the Mi Lo River 2000 years ago.

To scare away fish from eating his body, the townspeople beat drums and threw glutinous rice dumplings called zongzi into the water. Today, this event is remembered by Chinese people around the world, who eat zongzi and go swimming or at least dip their hands in rivers or lakes.

The real highlight of the festival is the fierce-looking dragon boats racing in a lively, vibrant spectacle. Teams race the elaborately decorated dragon boats to the beat of heavy drums. The special boats, which measure more than 10 metres, have ornately carved and painted 'dragon' heads and tails, and each carries a crew of 20-22 paddlers. Participants train in earnest for the competition. Sitting two abreast, with a steersman at the back and a drummer at the front, the paddlers race to reach the finishing line, urged on by the pounding drums and the roar of the crowds.

The Dragon Boat Festival is on June 2, 2014. Thousands of the world's top dragon athletes will be in Hong Kong for the International Dragon Boat Races. The races will held in Shatin, Tai Po, Sai Kung, Tuen Mum, Stanley, Aberdeen...etc. Don't miss the chance to join these excited races while joining ICRA 2014 as well.

Avenue of Stars and Victoria Harbour

The Avenue of Stars pays tribute to the names that helped make Hong Kong the "Hollywood of the East", while giving visitors a panoramic view of the city's most iconic sight: the stunning skyline along the Victoria Harbour.

The Big Buddha - Tian Tan Buddha

The Big Buddha was erected in 1993. Sitting 34 meters high and facing north to look over the Chinese people, this majestic bronze Buddha draws pilgrims from all over Asia.

 Opposite the statue, the Po Lin Monastery is one of Hong Kong's most important Buddhist sanctums and has been dubbed "the Buddhist World in the South". Home to many a devout monk, this monastery is rich with colorful manifestations of Buddhist iconography and its pleasant garden is alive with birdsong and flowery scents. You can also enlighten your appetite at their popular vegetarian restaurant.

Ladies' Market

With over 100 stalls of bargain clothing, accessories and souvenirs, the Ladies' Market on Tung Choi Street provides a one-kilometer stretch on which to practice your haggling skills. It gets its name from the huge amount of clothing and accessories on sale for women of all ages; however, with watches, cosmetics, bags, home furnishings, CDs and trinkets also up for grabs, you don't need to be just in the market for a pair of nylon stockings to find something within its crowded aisles.
