box-info2 Do You Know
  • The prices of the above tours are much higher than their usual prices (almost 2-5 times). The main reason of course is that these tours will be during the firework display. Therefore, if you are more interested in one harbor tour instead of specific fireworks harbor tour, you can check out other options of Hong Kong Victoria Harbour Tours.

  • Be aware that the quotas of these harbor tours are limited. If you want to experience this special firework event with this unique way, please contact with the companies and book as soon as possible while seats are still available.

  • If you unfortunately miss the chance of getting a ticket, don’t be unhappy. Usually on the 1st of October (China National Day) and on the last day of a year (31st of December), Hong Kong will also have fireworks display. You can consider to book it if you have a chance to visit Hong Kong by the time.

  • Otherwise, just go to locations we recommend in our article “Where Are the Best Places to Enjoy Hong Kong Fireworks Show“. Watching on land is also fantastic.
