Hong Kong lanterns illuminate the city

As one of the best free events in Hong Kong, the Spring Lantern Festival promises to illuminate locals and visitors on Hong Kong tours on the first full moon of the Chinese New Year.

On the fifteenth day of the first lunar month, a number of parks and outdoor spaces around the territory see beautiful paper lanterns hung and lit to commemorate the stunning fresh moonlight cast over the year for the first time, concluding the annual celebrations.

The lanterns can take many forms, from the simple and elegant classic designs to more modern depictions of dragons and other animals, meaning there is bound to be something to please every eye at this grand city-wide event.

Based on traditional calculations regarding the position of the lunar months, the date of the event differs each year but visitors in Hong Kong throughout the Chinese New Year should prepare themselves for a festival of subtle and lasting beauty.
