Shiba and doge items were everywhere this year, ahead of the Year of the Dog.
The Victoria Park Chinese New Year flower market is a heaving riot of budding plants, snack stalls, peculiar gift items and battling political parties (blame Tung Chee-hwa for that). Although it’s frequently crowded and the cacophony of loud speakers is a little deafening, a visit to the market is an annual tradition and the scrum is just part of the experience. We checked it out last weekend and here’s what we liked best.
RECOMENDED: If you’re heading to the flower market and want to know more about auspicious blooms, check out our guide to CNY flowers. And if the festivities down at Victoria Park have you eager for more, here are Hong Kong’s best Chinese New Year displays and our look at the history of CNY movies.
