28th February 2024 – (Hong Kong) In a bid to revitalise tourism and inject vibrancy into Hong Kong’s iconic Victoria Harbour, the Tourism Board has announced a series of monthly fireworks and drone performances set against the stunning nocturnal skyline. In conjunction with this, the Symphony of Lights, a daily light and music show, is slated for a transformative facelift.

The  Development Bureau is also poised to enhance the harbourfront’s appeal by introducing a variety of commercial facilities, including dining, retail, and entertainment, on a pilot basis at selected locations along the waterfront. This initiative aims to leverage the area’s scenic beauty while bolstering its position as a hub of leisure and commerce.

Building on the success of imaginative cultural and arts tourism projects, the Tourism Commission intends to roll out a multi-year plan to strengthen such initiatives. Among these is the Sai Kung Hoi Art Festival, an event that fosters a creative connection between islands through art, inviting visitors to immerse themselves in the natural charm, history, culture, and heritage of the Sai Kung sea.

The Bureau is set to promote in-depth immersive experiences, such as “Urban Walkabouts,” tailored to engage younger demographics with a penchant for adventure and exploration. These experiences will be softly marketed through an array of fresh activities encompassing hiking, cycling, stand-up paddleboarding, trail running, and even astronomical observation in the wilderness.
