The Destination
Some call it the Spring Festival. Others call it the Lunar New Year. Whatever you call it, one thing is for sure: the Chinese New Year is one of the largest, most festive celebrations in the world. And nowhere is the party bigger than in Hong Kong, one of the most cosmopolitan, densely packed areas on the planet. Celebrated between the end of January and the middle of February, the Chinese New Year festival combines thousands of years of tradition with the latest in merrymaking. Incense-filled flower markets, spectacular pyrotechnic shows, miles of passing parades, heart-pounding horse races, and bountiful tables of food are just a few of the sights, sounds, smells, and flavors that make this annual festival a must.

Join Globotours on a seven-day trip to Hong Kong, and experience the Chinese New Year like a local.

The Itinerary
day 1: The festivities begin as you board your flight to Hong Kong.

day 2: When you arrive in Hong Kong, report to the designated counter mentioned in your voucher for your transfer to your hotel.
Overnight at the Harbour Grand Kowloon (or the Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong for San Francisco departures).

day 3: In the morning you'll be taken to a local teahouse, where tall stacks of steaming bamboo baskets concealing a dim sum delicacy await. After a sumptuous breakfast, you'll ascend to the summit of Victoria Peak on a Peak Tram ride, then board a sampan along the floating fishing village at Aberdeen for a close-up view of the lifestyles of the Tanka community. Next, you'll drive past the scenic Repulse Bay to the market at Stanley, where you'll find traditional handicrafts and locally made clothes and accessories at bargain prices. Stop at the workshop of a well-known jewelry factory in Aberdeen, where you can observe the whole process of a piece of fine jewelry being created and handcrafted. This afternoon is free for shopping or sightseeing at your leisure. Tonight, enjoy a traditional Chinese New Year's Eve dinner followed by a tour to the New Year's Flower Market Carnival.
Overnight at the Harbour Grand Kowloon (or the Metropark Hotel Causeway Bay Hong Kong for San Francisco departures). Dim sum breakfast and dinner provided.

day 4: Take advantage of your free time to explore the city's many fine dining and shopping venues.
