Lunar New Year Parade in Hong Kong

    We left at 5 PM to see this highly acclaimed parade in Tsim Sha Tsui.  We were there by 6 and the parade didn't start until after 8.  It was too highly rated.  We were happy to see some creative displays of talents, but were most disappointed to see young scantly clad dancers parading down Nathan Road.  Western influence?  They had choices here.  Anyhow, we positioned ourselves across from the Peninsula Hotel, right behind some flower bushes/hedge at the park and should have good view from there until some aggressive onlookers pushed into the beautiful flower bushes and trod them under their feet.  Ouch, ouch,...

    Below is a slideshow of the pictures we took.  Enjoy!


  1. Looks like it's as big as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade! Were the foreign dancers there people living in Hong Kong or do they go FOR the parade?

  2. So was there a big group of you, or was it just you and Dad?
