2013 Hong Kong New Year Fireworks and Countdown Celebration

2013 Hong Kong New Year Fireworks and Countdown Celebration - The eight-minute show, the largest ever in the event's history, which was launched from both the skyscrapers and the harbour barges surrounding the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center (HKCEC).

Highlighting Hong Kong's night vistas, the show was dubbed as the first of the world's top 10 destinations for new year countdown celebrations. Nearly 400,000 Hong Kong residents and tourists watched the show on both sides of the Victoria Harbor.
Starting from 11 p.m. on the new year eve, fireworks were launched from the rooftops of participating buildings in Wan Chai every 15 minutes, lighting up the sky with "shooting stars" in four different colors to symbolise good wishes in career, health, fortune and love. In the final 10 seconds of 2012, fireworks in the shape of the numbers 10 to one shot from five buildings in Wan Chai. As the clock strikes midnight, fireworks were fired in three layers first from Victoria Harbor, then from the rooftop of HKCEC, and finally from five other buildings in Wan Chai.



  Recommended Spots to Watch The Show:
The Tsim Sha Tsui side. All along the Avenue of the Stars from the Star Ferry Terminal to the New World Centre in the East, anywhere where the Convention Center is within view would be preferable as it is this year's focal point of the extravaganza.

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

If staying in the Hong Kong Island side, consider the area around the Ferry Piers and in Wanchai around the Convention Centre and Bauhinia Square, although this might be too close. Hong Kong Tours
