Best Chinese New Year events
Take part in a local tradition and pray for new year blessings in one of the city’s most famous temples. The crowds in Wong Tai Sin Temple are at their peak come midnight on New Year’s Eve (Feb 4) as thousands of worshippers compete to be one of the first to make offerings to the gods in the hope of receiving the biggest of blessings. Alternatively, head for Che Kung Temple on the second day of CNY (Feb 6). Don’t forget to turn the copper windmill in a clockwise direction to sweep in good luck before you leave and be prepared to wait at least an hour or so to enter the temples.
